Breathtaking rooftop canopies and where to find them

Posted on | Posted in Uncategorised

We install canopies for schools, homes, and businesses across the UK. Many of the canopies we install are practical additions to buildings, allowing people to get more use from their outdoor space. Every so often, we are asked to install a canopy somewhere unusual or spectacular.

The structures we install in breathtaking locations are typically canopies for restaurants, bars, and hotels. Hospitality canopies allow venues to seat customers outdoors in every season. Canopy systems with enclosed sides and heating can even be used to dine alfresco in the colder months.

An outdoor dining terrace complete with a retractable dining canopy is a valuable addition to any hotel or restaurant. Turning disused outdoor space into desirable seating, it creates the ultimate destination. From rooftops to sea views, we’ve installed some beauties.

Here are our top 3 most breathtaking rooftop canopy installations and where to find them:

Terrace canopy evening Sabine

1. Sabine, Leonardo Royal Hotel, London

With stunning views of St Paul’s Cathedral and the River Thames, Sabine is a rooftop bar in a prime central London location. A secret garden in the city, the bar’s botanical décor and luxury setting provides a calm oasis high above the busy streets.

The rooftop dining canopy perfectly frames its spectacular surroundings. The grey colour is sympathetic to the building and can be fully enclosed for cooler weather.
