Depending on how much you enjoy porn star martinis, you’ll either love or hate Radio, the rooftop bar and lounge in the ME London hotel on the Strand. It’s basically a huge scene, and it’s packed with TOWIE-a-likes and the Real Housewives of Cheshire on any given night - it’s both a misanthrope’s worst nightmare and extremely compelling people-watching. The drinks are decent (and inevitably pricey), and the view from the terrace is nice, though it looks way better in the pictures. You need to book a sofa outside in order to have a shot at lounging at peak times, and yes, there is a minimum spend.
