Storemapper can help you narrow down your search by area, and we’ve picked some of our favourites offering champagne and cocktail experiences to help.
Dalloway Terrace at the Bloomsbury Hotel, Bloomsbury
Dripping with verdant plant life and flowers in bloom, the Dalloway Terrace is a picture-perfect spot to sit with a Belvedere or Moët & Chandon cocktail. The menu is inspired by springtime, and includes the Jasmine Delight, a floral combination of Belvedere Vodka, jasmine verte liqueur, lemon, blackberry coulis, agave syrup and peach and jasmine soda. Or there’s a fruity Strawberry Sgroppino, combining Belvedere Vodka, bergamot liqueur, strawberry sorbet, pomegranate and Moët & Chandon Brut.

The Terrace at Meraki, Fitzrovia
The founders of Meraki restaurant have scoured every corner of Greece to choose the best produce for their menus. Bottarga from Mesologgi, tomatoes from Santorini and butter from Crete are just the start of this seasonal menu of grilled fish and meats and mezze-style sharing plates that capture the warmth and hospitality of the Mediterranean. Wash it all down with a glass of Moët & Chandon champagne on their new terrace in the heart of Fitzrovia.

For that extra special day or night event, you can hire a day bed and pre-book drinks packages.
4 Kingdom Street
The Terrace at Goat, Chelsea
Mixologists served up virtual cocktail making classes every Saturday throughout lockdown, and now that they’ve reopened their terrace in collaboration with Moët Hennessy tables are in high demand. Enjoy aperitivo hour with a glass of Moët & Chandon Brut or a champagne cocktail in hand.
