Rooftop Bars and Cinemas in London

Contrary to Game of Thrones “Summer is coming”, and as someone who might not like being inside all the time and may also like to go out for a drink or to see a film, I thought about giving you some ideas about rooftop bars and cinemas to visit in London over the warmer months!

Queen of Hoxton – Rooftop Bar and Cinema in Shoreditch

Queen of Hoxton

The Queen of Hoxton is one of the most famous clubs in Shoreditch. I myself have been there a few times now and always had a perfectly good time. While the drinks may not be the cheapest in London they don’t make that big of a dent in one’s finances either. The club itself has two floors + the rooftop bar and all of them play different kinds of music so there should be a floor with good music for everyone. The rooftop cinema usually has screenings from Sunday to Tuesday at 9 pm starting at the beginning of May.

Roof East – Rooftop Bar and Cinema in Stratford

Roof East

This season, Londoners can get an extra helping of fun as Roof East opens its doors earlier than ever before. It’s an explosion of brightly coloured backdrops, quirky visuals and non-stop fun- every Instagrammer’s dream- all teamed with a selection of delectable drinks and an assortment of the best rooftop games around (including Curling, Bowling, Shuffling, Cornhole, Jenga, Table Tennis, Foosball or Table-top Curling and many more). The rooftop cinema screenings usually happen from Tuesday to Sunday at 8.30 pm starting at the beginning of May.

Prince of Wales – Rooftop Bar in Brixton

Prince of Wales

The Prince of Wales pub & POW forms a large music venue with two-tier outdoor roof terrace in Brixton. A great location for late night drinking and dancing.
“The best outdoor terrace in London’ you’ll find the sounds of sunset then the night – every weekend!” says Time Out Magazine.
Where: The Prince of Wales & POW, 467-469 Brixton Road, London, SW9 8HH

Sky Garden – Botanic Garden high above the City of London

Sky Garden

While this is not exactly a rooftop bar because it’s not on top of the roof, Sky Garden has a fantastic view over the London skyline being located on the 35th floor of 20 Fenchurch Street Building. Enjoy yourself and some drinks in this botanical garden high above all the noise of the City of London. I would recommend booking a time slot in advance. Visiting is always free but with a booked time slots (which also costs nothing) so you can be sure that they let you in as only a certain amount of people can be up there at a time.
Where: Sky Garden, 20 Fenchurch St, London EC3M 8AF

The Garden at 120

Last but not least, The Garden at 120 a new addition to the crayon box. A new mid-level roof garden on Fenchurch Street. This suspended pocket park lives 15 floors high, atop One Fen Court. And the best bit? It’s completely free. No pre-booking necessary, just turn up and ride the lift up.

The roof garden offers 360-degree views, but as it’s only 15 floors high, some pesky neighbouring skyscrapers are unfortunately in the way.
