Just as London was sweltering through one of the stickiest days of the summer so far, did Ace Shoreditch open its rooftop bar and terrace last night, crowning its nearly year-old European venture on the hotel’s 7th floor together with a number of meeting spaces.

Running along virtually the length of the building, the terrace offers views ranging from the City (you can see the famous Gherkin in the above shot) to St. Paul’s, the Barbican, Centre Point at Tottenham Court Road, and the far north.

The main space inside can be opened up or closed off depending on requirements, and through the double doors you see at the end is the double-height cube-like space on the south-western corner of the building.

Before you start rushing over to Shoreditch to get a drink, the bar and terrace unfortunately are not open to the public at this time – licensing laws mean it’s for exclusive use only, but let’s hope that will change in the near future.

One way you’re guaranteed outdoor space with your Ace adventure? There are three new “Urban Apartments” (suites) available now as well, each with outdoor space. We think we spied one of them just one floor below, which had a large terrace with all-weather canopy (for when that British drizzle does make an appearance) and comfy-looking sofa.

A quick browse through online reservations doesn’t show us what those will cost, but we can see a Standard Room at Ace Shoreditch goes for a hair under £160 ($270) a night if you’re willing to prepay. Count on £200 ($340) for a flexible rate.
