If you want to know what happens when someone goes to the south of France and comes back with big ideas for an outdoors bar in Shoreditch, come to the Boundary Rooftop at the Boundary Project. Once you get past the snooty staff on the ground floor desk, you’ll find a slightly characterless space populated by suits, and people who are looking at each other like they can’t quite figure out how or why their night has ended up here. That said, outdoor space is at a premium in Shoreditch, and while this should never be your first choice, the views aren’t bad, and a beer, or a glass of wine and a plate of oysters in the sun isn’t the worst way to spend an hour or so.
