The Rooftop St. JamesThe Trafalgar Hotel was treated to a major upgrade in 2017, reopening as The Trafalgar St. James, and as a result, the rooftop bar was also given a sleek new makeover. Newly named The Rooftop St. James, it has been transformed into a year-round rooftop hotspot, featuring a larger space, a Mediterranean style lounge, dining areas and a private glasshouse available to hire, with room to seat 14 people. Sip hot toddies next to the open fireplace and heaters in the winter or sample refreshing summer cocktails in the warmer months. Reservations are encouraged.
