The Dorchester launches alfresco dining with first ever rooftop restaurant & bar

Updated: Apr 15, 2021

Well, we hear that there's a big birthday coming up for "The Dorch"!

The Big 9-0 on 20th April 2021 is a fantastic milestone for one of Park Lanes most prestigious hotels.

AND to celebrate, they will be launching (on 12th April) The Dorchester Terrace & Garden rooftop with views over Hyde Park and Spring Garden. How exciting! Oh how we love a rooftop venue!

The Dorchester Rooftop (restaurant and bar)

This space will be open throughout the Spring and Summer making the most of the longer days and those stunning sunsets (in our heads we are screaming sundowners). We're thinking terrace umbrellas, killer views, heaters and blankets to beat the chill for lunches, dinners and even sipping on a cocktail or a glass of champagne whilst listening to a live band or DJ.

The Spring Garden

Nestled under The Dorchester’s plane tree, The Spring Garden has two private garden

globes which seat up to five guests each. Guests can enjoy a show stopping private dining

menu by executive chef Mario Perera in partnership with Veuve Clicquot. The one of a kind

spring inspired three-course menu celebrates the best of British and includes; Scottish Diver

scallops ceviche; blue lobster & wye valley asparagus; and The Dorchester coulibiac.

The Spring Garden will be open daily from April 12, 2021, for lunch and dinner with menus

priced at £160 per person, including a glass of Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame Vintage

2004. Minimum spend of £450 per garden globe applies.

Chefs & Dates!

Starting with head chef at The Grill at The Dorchester, from Monday, April 12 to Sunday, April 25, Tom Booton will introduce a British summertime menu showcasing locally sourced produce.

Highlights from Tom’s land, sea and garden menu concept include: Ribeye with

mushrooms and tarragon; prawn scotch egg with curry sauce; and barbequed leeks with

ricotta and salsa verde.

Bringing relaxed Parisian chic to the rooftop, executive chef of Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester, Jean-Philippe Blondet will introduce a modern, light and elegantly informal pop- up with a menu of delicious bites from Monday, April 26 to Sunday, May 9.

Jean-Philippe has developed a menu of small plates such as: hummus, seaweed crisp and lemon confit; grilled octopus, confit pepper and grapefruit; and native lobster, spiced avocado and shiso


Further pop-ups will be announced later in the year. The Dorchester Rooftop will be open

daily from 12pm to 1am. Reservations only and with a minimum spend of £60 per person.
