When the sun comes out, it merits a celebration! Most cities, especially London, don’t offer a lot of outside space so the secret is to head to the rooftops. We think we may have found a new favourite party place – Cheers, Madison!
Madison is a rooftop bar in the heart of the city of London, overlooking St Paul’s Cathedral. Because it’s open air you really feel connected to the city and there’s something decadent about lounging on a terrace with some refreshments while people are rushing about below you.
The sofas and chairs are so comfortable it’s like being at a high end beach bar in Cannes or Ibiza, without the messy sand.
We were there for the launch of Moet and Chandon’s Ice Imperial, which is a demi sec style of Champagne, designed to be served over ice. (Check it out at Selfridges here). They call this drink a Piscine in France (a big goblet of Champagne and ice). Moet and Chandon has designed some pretty spectacular goblets for the occasion.
It’s not just the Live Like a VIP team that’s loving this drink and the al fresco surroundings. We saw Made in Chelsea’s Lucy Watson with her new boyfriend James Dunmore. Such a gorgeous couple!
Pixie Lott’s boyfriend Olivier Cheshire was there with friend as Pixie’s working hard. I hope Oliver got her a bottle for when she’s finished making her next album.
Madison has a restaurant inside and the food looks really tasty, trust me. Hopefully I’ll get to go back and taste it, but there’s no hope involved in the question of whether I’ll be back to Madison this summer. In the words of the Terminator – ‘I’ll be back!
