In the heart of Aldgate, hovering above the city skyline, Florattica Rooftop Bar has marked its one-year anniversary with flowing Champagne, delicious canapés and its signature aromatic cocktails. Tildy is wowed by the panoramic views across the City from this stylsih rooptop venue

The rooftop is the perfect location to (quite literally) elevate your after-work drinks, or, if you are looking for a heightened entry into the new year, Florattica’s New Year’s Eve party invites guests to welcome 2024 while soaking up views of the city and indulging in a four-course tasting menu and live music.

Drawing inspiration from the textile heritage of East London and the intricate floral patterns of the 17th-century French Huguenots, the bar’s interior is stylishly decorated with floral installations, and currently decorated with baubles and fairy lights over the festive season.

Head Mixologist, Eleanora Esposito, has designed a cocktail menu "in the language of flowers”. The menu boasts unique cocktails developed with premium spirits and local provenance ingredients, including the “Cachai”, an infusion of Blue Pisco, La Yuzu Liquor, Kiwi Syrup and Lime Soda, a standout for lovers of a Pisco Sour; or for those looking for a richer, fruitier concoction, the “Crimson”, made with Campari Bitter, Lactofermented Plum and Citrus.
