The Trafalgar St. James
How are you spending your summer? While we can all dream of months lazily spent strolling pretty coastal paths and lingering over long, sun-dappled lunches next to the Mediterranean, the reality is many of us will be staying right here in the capital – which is why The Rooftop at The Trafalgar St. James is bringing a slice of Southern France to our doorstep this summer.
The luxury hotel has teamed up with Provence winery Château d’Esclans, maker of the famed Whispering Angel rosé, to create the Whispering Angel @ The Rooftop terrace. Taking over the seventh-floor restaurant and bar, which boasts incredible views over the central London skyline, the al fresco terrace will offer a unique menu of Provençal cocktails, drinks and dishes against a backdrop of seasonal floral decor.
The star of the show is the special Provence rosé wine menu, which features some of Château d’Esclans best-loved bottles, including the delicate Whispering Angel and high-energy Rock Angel. Accompanying this will be a series of limited edition rosé-based cocktails, such as Taste of Provence: an elegant blend of Whispering Angel, homemade lavender syrup and a touch of soda.
And should mid-shopping drinks or sunset cocktails turn into a long lunch or decadent dinner? Whispering Angel @ The Rooftop is happy to provide. The Trafalgar’s team of world-class chefs has devised a menu of light summery dishes and indulgent classics perfect for every occasion. Choose from a delectable offering including crispy prawns with lime and vegan nduja, halloumi fries with pomegranate and mint, and grilled seabass with salsa verde and burnt lemon.
From 10 June, Whispering Angel @ The Rooftop will also be serving a lively weekend brunch perfect for special celebrations and making the most of the (hopefully) glorious summer sunshine. Available from 11am to 2.45pm every Saturday and Sunday, the menu includes luxurious dishes such as crab and crayfish brioche sandwich, grilled minute steak and the signature Rooftop Muffin, packed with sausage, egg, hash brown, smoked cheddar and treacle-cured bacon.
And to wash everything down? Why, a glass of Whispering Angel, of course.
Whispering Angel @ The Rooftop opens on 9 June 2023, visit trafalgarstjames.com to book.
