Babylon at the Roof GardensRichard Branson's rooftop restaurant-come-nightclub at Kensington Roof Gardens is a favourite with the glam girls of Kensington, who can be seen at all hours sipping cocktails in the Spanish garden, or picking at salads on the terrace, and enjoying stunning views of West London (and of the gents' toilets, just visible if you peek through the waterfall in the ladies'). Babylon at the Roof Gardens is a glitzy spot, with lots of fiddly, sexy little things on the menu, but sturdier types are catered for too, with meat-heavy grills, barbecues and excellent fresh fish. In winter a fire and cosy booths make Babylon a soothing spot, but it is at its best on the hottest summer nights, when you can eat under the stars in a lush garden a hundred feet above the capital and then boogie the night away.
