12 of the best rooftop bars launched this summer

The Orrery

This French restaurant in Marylebone has joined forces with Moët & Chandon and L’Artisan Parfumeur to launch a Provence style summer rooftop terrace.

The bar team have created a trio of cocktails to complement scents from L’Artisan Parfumeur including ‘Un été en Carmargue’, consisting of Sipsmith gin, Moët & Chandon champagne and bergamot zest, inspired by the scent ‘Chant de Camargue’; ‘Narcisse’, made with 16 year Lagavulin whisky, Cointreau, and Moët & Chandon champagne, reflecting the tones of ‘Mont de Narcisse’; and the ‘Provence Cooler’, with Belvedere Vodka, Crème de Mure, lavender and Moët & Chandon champagne.

The Orrery will offer a selection of small plates inspired by Southern European cuisine with a menu featuring chilled tomato gazpacho; buffalo mozzarella served alongside poached pear and truffle honey; and desserts such as an elderflower panna cotta decorated with fresh strawberry and the celebrated Moët & Chandon rosé jelly.

Guests can take a seat on linen-covered couches amongst a grove of aromatic lavender, rosemary and olive trees reminiscent of the French Riviera while limited edition carefully crafted scent balls from L’Artisan Parfumeur will decorate the space, providing notes of lavender, hay, rosemary, tomato leaf and basil.
