If not, here’s a refresher: it’s a slick rooftop garden and terrace in the City that gets routinely rammed during the summer and for a long time, it was the most interesting thing to happen in the Square Mile during the summer.The drinks are decent, and the crowd’s predominantly City boys and girls.
