With the sun slowly starting to shine, the British summer will be here before we know it. Thanks to the lockdown, we haven’t seen our friends in months, so what better way to catch up than drinking cocktails at a rooftop bar with stunning views.

It’s no wonder this trendy location is called the mesmerist, as both the views and drinks there are mesmerising. Plus, if you ever get sick of their roofgarden you can enjoy a drink or a bite to eat on one of their three other floors.

Patterns has everything, including a modern bar, trendy club, and breathtaking terrace that overlooks the sea front. This location is the one to spend your summer nights rather than during the day, as most days Patterns doesn’t open until late afternoon, or not until 11pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
