For those American cousins who can’t make it home for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner this year, Babylon Restaurant at The Roof Gardens in Kensington could be the next best thing.

To celebrate America’s most popular holiday, Babylon guests will be transported to the sounds of basement New York jazz clubs of the 1930s and 40s as they listen to world-famous classics such as ‘I Get a Kick Out of You’ to Harold Arlen’s ‘Stormy Weather’ and Rodgers and Hart’s ‘My Funny Valentine,’ all performed by the talented vocalists and musicians from resident jazz band ‘The Ben Matthews Trio’.

Babylon has a spectacular overlooking London skyline 100ft above Kensington High Street. For the evening, Head Chef Ian Howard, has added one or two extra special Thanksgiving themed dishes to the selection of excellent, seasonal dishes on their menu.

So, whether you are away from your home across the pond, on the 26th November, or you or you simply would like to be part of this special occasion, you can reserve a table by calling Babylon on 020 7368 3993 or alternatively you can email [email protected] or visit
