Chances are that if you work in the City, Coq D’Argent is already one of your regular stops. If not, here’s a refresher: it’s a slick rooftop garden and terrace in the City that gets routinely rammed during the summer and for a long time, it was the most interesting thing to happen in the Square Mile during the summer.The drinks are decent, and the crowd’s predominantly City boys and girls. While it gets crazy during the week, consider checking it out at the weekend for a lazy lunch or drinks.
