We’ve written this blog to tell you more about your new favourite drinking spot in London.

The Joy of an Outside Bar 

When the sun makes an appearance here in the UK, we love heading to the nearest beer garden and enjoying nice weather and delicious drinks. 

Here are some reasons why this is such a well-loved UK pastime:

  • The Atmosphere: Enjoying a drink outdoors provides a refreshing change from the enclosed spaces of traditional bars. The open-air environment at The Green Room is perfect for soaking up the natural light during the day and enjoying the cool breeze in the evening.


  • Social Space: The spacious outdoor area encourages social interaction and is ideal for gatherings. Whether you’re meeting friends, hosting a celebration, or simply relaxing after a long day, an outside setting fosters a friendly and inviting atmosphere.


  • Connection with Nature: Being outdoors allows you to appreciate the surrounding greenery and the charming garden setup, which can be a calming influence and enhance your overall drinking experience.


Why You’ll Love Our Outside Bar 

Perfect Location

One of the standout features of The Green Room is its unbeatable location

Nestled right behind the National Theatre, it sits at the heart of the bustling South Bank, one of London’s most vibrant cultural hubs. 

This prime spot makes it an ideal destination for both locals and tourists. 

Whether you’re spending a day exploring the nearby attractions or waiting for a train, there’s no place better for sitting outside and soaking up the vibes of the city before heading off for an exciting day ahead.

Atmosphere and Ambience

We love our outdoor terrace and garden, and our team are meticulous when designing and styling this area to make it the perfect spot for socialising over a drink.

Surrounded by lush greenery, it feels like a tranquil oasis amidst the busy London environment, and is the perfect place to let your hair down and catch your breath. 

Our garden is perfect for sunny days, allowing guests to enjoy their drinks and meals in the fresh air. 

Did we mention the size of it, as well? If you’re looking for space, this is the place for you as we provide plenty of room for groups while maintaining a sense of privacy and seclusion. It is also a flexible space, which is crucial in restaurant design as it opens up many avenues on what you can do and the events you can hold. From weddings to live DJs, our outside bar fits the bill and provides the perfect environment.

The friendly staff, comfortable seating, and background music all contribute to a setting where you can unwind and enjoy quality time with friends or family, all under the glorious London sun.

The Benefits of Drinking in the Sun

Drinking in the sun is one of life’s simple pleasures, and The Green Room’s outdoor bar makes it easy.

Head on down on a sunny day and you will see how many people are enjoying soaking up some rays and sipping on some tasty drinks. 

And there are many reasons this is such a popular thing to do. 

Sunshine is a natural mood enhancer.  Sitting in sunlight helps your body produce serotonin, a hormone associated with boosting mood and helping you feel calm and focused.

This means that if you’ve had a stressful day, or simply need a moment to yourself, then getting out in the sun is a great way to improve your mood and get your day back on track. 

Spending time in the sun also helps your body produce Vitamin D, which is essential for maintaining healthy bones and boosting the immune system.

And if you’re solely focused on enjoying your food and drinks the most, being in the sun can also help here. 

The flavours of your drink can feel more pronounced and enjoyable in a sunny outdoor setting. 

The warmth of the sun enhances your sensory experience, making every sip more delightful and every bite that little bit more tasty.
