London Rooftops: Storeys

London has no shortage of rooftop spots, but do you know what we are lacking? Decent places to drink in West London. Sure, I love a good Sally Cinnamon at The Portobello Star or an al fresco Aperol spritz on Westbourne Grove, but there's a real gap in the market for casual places with a more chilled-out vibe. Well, there was until Storeys arrived.

Housed atop the old Beeb building car-park, Storeys is a hot-to-trot two-storey space with a whole host of fun activities on offer. Obviously, the main one is eating and drinking, because this is London and that's all we really do (and drink green juice because that cancels out all toxins...) but there is also going to be striking artwork, movie screenings in the evening and early-bird yoga classes with Serene Social, the global wellness community.

The foodie vendors change weekly, but we were lucky enough to have En Brochette on-hand during our visit. En Brochette deserves a shout-out as it is a delicious alternative to carb-laden street food, offering various skewers on a bed of what could well be the best salad I've ever had. I say this because at the press launch the power-cut meant I couldn't actually try the skewers, but I managed to convince the team at En Brochette to whip me up their signature salad. The dressing, ladies and gents, is absolutely dynamite and sugar-free to boot. If I ever find the recipe, I'll post it straight away.

All in all, the whole vibe is totally East London, except for the fact it is West. All food served is from street food traders and the cocktails are unfussy but tasty and dangerously moreish. It's simply a splendid place to spend a chilled-out weekend in August, particularly when the sun shows up.

Located on top of the former BBC Car Park in White City, Storeys runs for seven weekends from 31st July 2015. There are no reservations, but you can find out more about listings and street food vendors here or follow them on Twitter here
