If you’re like us, you’re probably a bit of a sucker for a killer sunset with a great glass of wine (… or 4). Whether it’s a weeknight or weekend, you simply can’t turn down an invitation for a cold beverage with great company and an even better view.
So get that bucket list ready (…and by bucket list we mean that random page of notes in your phone that you sporadically add to), because here are our top picks for the Best Sunset Sips in South Bank.
If you’re craving relaxed, beach-side cocktails for sunset but aren’t near the coast, Southbeach is the place for you. Serving laid-back, luxe vibes and boasting amazing views, their alfresco entertaining space is perfectly suited to warm summer evenings. With live music every Friday to Sunday, there’s no better spot for a weekend get together.
- OTTO Osteria and Ristorante
