Drop what you’re doing, I have found the secret garden… and guess what?!
Summer decided not to come to the UK this year, but that doesn’t mean we will be confined in our little flats being miserable. With those first rays of sun, we storm out of the house and chase adventure. 50′ of walking from the “shoreditch fort” and here I am in the heart of it all, waiting for my best friend for yet another catch up session.
I had heard about John Lewis’ re-made roof terrace but I definitely did not anticipate this…
As soon as we entered the secret garden our face dropped… a beautiful green utopia appeared before us, bedazzled with all sorts of flowers of various makes and colours. The sun decided to make one of its brief yet precious appearances and we were blessed with beauty and happiness all under the euphoric umbrella of our surroundings.
Straight away I spotted my beloved “Grind company” stand and run to grab a thirst quenching green juice – which admittedly is my latest fad. Pieros went for an iced english breakfast iced tea with mint and lemon (i tried and it was delicious).
Although I did not have brunch there, given my previous indulgence at Shoreditch Grind earlier that morning, I am definitely going back for more. The lobster shack seemed promising as well as the Potting Shed coffee/bar.
Oh and for the yoga bunnies?! feel free to combine your breakfast session with the “Rise and shine yoga sessions”. Available every Thursday morning this summer at John Lewis roof terrace, you can catch Fat Buddha Yoga. *Excited*
I absolutely loved it!!! The staff was very polite and attentive and the overall atmosphere extremely Zen. For the garden lovers, there’s a little shack selling goodies and gorgeous little tools for your green patches. For the brunch lovers… well… there’s everything you’d really need for an ideal experience!!!
In their own words:
The rooftop of John Lewis Oxford Street has been transformed into an arena of blooms and fresh herbs, hosting pop-up restaurants in collaboration with Night Tales, a coffee shop, activities such as yoga and a vibrant garden where you can relax and take time out.
The roof terrace will be open until the 4th September 2016 and for more information click here.
