After a few cocktails and some time spent on their roof terrace, you might forget that you’re on Greens Lanes and not a bar in the Med! 501 Green Lanes, Harringay, London, N4 1AL
Rakkas For an alternative take on a ‘beer garden’ head to Rakkas, an affordable and authentic Mediterranean style restaurant boasting a beer garden with a twist. Take your pick from their selection of shishas to be enjoyed in their recently renovated garden that boasts a 130 seated area.
