The Highly Coveted Venue Will Reopen At Five-Star Luxury Lifestyle Hotel ME London This June 28

Iconic rooftop bar, Radio, has unveiled a striking new design ahead of its reopening at ME London this June 28.

The fresh concept heralds the start of a new era for the renowned 200-seated rooftop venue and will see expertly crafted modern Asian drinks and sharing plates served against spectacular views of London’s skyline.

Designed by acclaimed international restaurant designer, Bernard Caroll, the interior concept fuses classic and contemporary luxury with Eastern inspired detailing to create an environment that is sophisticated and yet subtly playful.

Interior details include beautiful bespoke coral reef wallpaper from Adam Ellis Studio, plush furnishings in natural dessert tones, warm oak wood fixtures, marble surfaces, brushed brass finishes and exotic dried palms.

Taking centre stage and one of the key attributes of the reimagined 10th floor venue is a beautiful back-lit onyx cocktail bar.  Trilateral in shape, the destination bar echoes the external structure of the luxury lifestyle hotel, from where Radio’s Asian-influenced discerning drinks menu can be experienced.

Amongst the extensive selection of drinks to feature will be premium Japanese spirits and an exclusive selection of sake and shochu, inspired by the bright and bold flavours of Eastern Asia.

In a throwback to a time in Japan when savvy bartenders used the ‘sonic’ technique to improve any drink spritzed with tonic water, Radio will also offer authentic highball serves and gin/sonics in collaboration with The House of Suntory.

Cocktails will be expertly crafted by Senior General Manager Daniel Susko (previously of Annabel’s, SushiSamba, Soho House), and his esteemed team of mixologists using sous vide technology to inject increased flavour into every sip.  Mango Sticky Rice – a blend of Hennessy VS Cognac, pureed fresh mango, jasmine rice infused coconut milk and saline is amongst the list of new signature concoctions to be enjoyed.

Complementing the new cocktail menu will be an extensive wine list,  with top international producers represented alongside emerging and interesting wines from Japan.  The Champagne and Provence menu has been curated in collaboration with Moet-Hennessy.

Leading the kitchen at Radio and serving a menu of modern Asian sharing plates with international flair will be Executive Chef Federico Crisafulli.

Formerly Executive Chef of the Italian Embassy in Tokyo and prior to this, Head Chef at Intercontinental Yokohama in Japan, and Michelin-starred Grand Hotel in Rome, Crisafulli brings with him a wealth of experience in Asian and international cuisine.

Signature plates will include Kumamoto Oysters with pickled onions, lime and kito yuzu chilli sauce; beef tataki with shitake and truffle ponzu; chilli squid with shiso and lime; and black cod with ginger miso in lettuce wraps.  Providing a sweet finish will be a selection of exquisite desserts including Banana Spring Rolls with shiso, milk ice cream and passion fruit, and Pavlova with white miso.

All will be served against Radio’s coveted views of London’s skyline with new high and low-level plush seating and a custom-made all-weather structure providing guests with an enhanced year-round panoramic vista, from St Paul’s Cathedral to the London Eye, The Shard, The Houses of Parliament and beyond.

Live music from internationally acclaimed DJ’s and vocal and instrumental artists will complete the fabric of the premium rooftop venue, playing a cool, deep, and smooth soundtrack throughout the day and midweek evenings, and up-lifting beats late into the weekend.

Radio at ME London will re-open this June 28 providing a relaxed contemporary rooftop environment in which residents of the luxury lifestyle hotel and guests can relax, work, and indulge from sunrise to sunset.  Open daily and serving brunch, lunch, dinner and cocktails, Radio is to be experienced.
