7 East London Rooftop Bars Ideal For Spring Summer

Okay, so we know the weather in London is a liiiitttllee bit hit & miss at the moment, but Spring is here and Summer is definitely coming…which means beverages outdoors is our number 1 hobby. If you’re outdoor drinking then you need to do it properly, at a rooftop bar, and East London has a decent amount of them…however, we know you probably can’t be bothered searching for them yourselves, so we’ve done it for you. Here’s our list of 7 East London rooftop bars…

Skylight at Tobacco Dock

A rooftop bar in the iconic Tobacco Dock, paired with some jenga & croquet…doesn’t get more British summer time than that, does it? It’s the ideal spot to enjoy epic views of London, sip on a sweet beverage, and embrace your inner child with all the games available to get involved in. 


Netil 360

Most definitely a favourite of ours, not just because it’s around the corner from Kip. Netil 360 is one of the ‘vibiest’ bars in Hackney, a great spot for live music, dancing to some of the most talented djs, amongst a good crowd with some 360 views of East London! You can also grab some Japanese food there if that’s your thing…


Located on the iconic, Redchurch Street, right in the heart of Shoreditch, is the boujee Boundary Rooftop bar, which sits on the roof (funnily enough) of Boundary hotel. If you want to feel like you’re in Cannes (or something like that), then this is the spot for you, with its rooftop orangery, perfectly-pruned greenery, and white cotton cushions. It’s definitely the place to go if you’re looking for a little glamour alongside your rooftop drinking. 

Queen of Hoxton 

The majesty of East London’s rooftops, Queen of Hoxton is way more than a bar. In the past they’ve had a rooftop teepee, outdoor cinema, and a little Mexican fiesta. The Queen of Hoxton is currently in the process of prepping the roof for a bit of summer sauce, and trust us it looks suacy, it’s THE place to chuck your heels off, take off your tie and have a lovely beverage in the sunshine. 

The Culpepper Rooftop Garden 

The Culpeper rooftop feels less like a rooftop bar with a garden, and more like a sky-high allotment with spaces amongst the plants to grab a drink. Of course it’s pretty rare to find a whole garden in the city, and the views are epic…so it’s win win, but what
