Best Rooftop Bar 2012 - DesignMyNight Awards

Golden Bee bar in London opened in June 2012 to reveal a stunning new late-night cocktail bar, club and roof terrace. Located on Old Street amongst the buzz of Shoreditch, you can enjoy rooftop drinks on a stylish terrace with views over East London. The cocktail list is playful and delicate with choices such as Nutella Martini, Passion fruit Mojito, Strawberry Collins, Pomegranate Cosmo, etc! With covered and open-air spaces, this is a perfect rooftop bar for unpredictable London summers where you can toast alfresco drinks with a view over the heaving streets of Shoreditch.

This open-air bar have comfy sofas and tables, perfect for hosting your event or special occasion as well as two 60 inch screens ideal for watching sporting events. The inside Golden Bee bar and club has modern stylings sporting the perfect mix of luxury and comfort. Thursday, Friday and Saturday things go up a level with DJs playing up beat House and requests till 3am, and this party goes OFF. A hidden party gem waiting to be discovered.

Really good sunset bar/after work drinks in East London. Good mix of clientele. Glad I got there early to get a spot on terrace. Just need to make bar bigger and more seating. Definitely would go back! Extra points for the helpful barman.
Nice roof bar at the very top, more average bar on the first floor. Bouncers were thugs, aggressive and looking for a fight. This may reflect the crowd who frequent Golden Bee. Not a friendly place.
Excellent night with great music. Yes, there was a fight - but the guy who the bouncers took outside was really asking for it. He has been harassing girls all night. Most people were glad he was removed. Stayed till the end. Brilliant!

We visited Golden Bee on Saturday for late night drinks. It may have been an oversight on our part but I had no idea that the roof terrace closes at 11pm. We arrived at exactly 11pm and the club was rammed with people that had headed down from the terrace. We paid £15 for two G&T's and crammed into a corner of the smoking area. Within twenty minutes a fight broke out between a customer and a bouncer, we watched a huge bouncer continuously punch a guy until the fight was moved outside. I've seen tons of fights in clubs but none as bad as this. A girl next to us had her foot cut open by flying glasses. I have read reviews of Golden Bee and reports of violent and aggressive bouncers and our experience only confirmed this. We left after an hour. It may be different in the daytime when the terrace is open but not sure I will be visiting again.
Staff at Golden bee before my big night have been very helpful , friendly and accommodation. I planned a night out with friends for my 31st and decided to cancel due to thunderstorm. But on the day itself (Saturday) the typical British weather was beautiful therefore called up again to ask if I can re book and they where absolutely fine. Get there early to avoid a queue. We had one more person on out guest list but they wouldn't let him in but had to queue. Very packed. No space to move. So best to hVe an area booked if your going to be staying there all night. Had a birthday gift which understandably the bouncers took off me but when it came to giving it back another Bouncer was unnecessarily rude. Over all had a pleasant experience and a fantastic night. Would defiantly go there again.
Love this place! My first official night out upon arrival to the Uk & the music, staff & venue was on point. The Roof Top terrace was amazing! Can't wait to be there for summer!
Had a couple of drinks here last Friday, cocktails were lovely. Venue was really nice but make sure you get there at a decent time or it gets really busy
We all had a good night but make sure you book the rooftop in advance! The rooftop closes at 11pm so make sure you get there early! I personally found the downstairs bar area quite small but we were lucky with the warm weather and being able to go outside - the prices weren't too bad for drinks either, but this website needs to update the entry fees for the Golden Bee bar...!! I would definitely go again though :)
Unfortunately could not go onto the roof top as it was booked for a private event. It would have been nice to know this in advance of going there. Cocktails were mediocre as well
Had a fantastic evening on the roof top. Staff were friendly and really helpful. The weather had looked dodgy in the afternoon so they contacted me with a revised plan incase the roof was closed. We were well looked after.
Lovely staff and lush cocktails good music just a shame we didn't know we couldn't have access unless we had pre-paid £50 which we may have considered if we had been aware -not made clear but we had fun!
Great bar, the roof top is the best feature of this bar (you'll need to book in advance) didnt rate the DJ and the door staff were a little off for my liking but other then that it was a great night. Once the roof top floor gets closed it gets very busy and can take a while to get to the bar for a drink. Worth a visit.
Fab rooftop terrace one of the best in the area, I loved he cocktails, this has to be one of my favorite places in the summer, recommend you book the rooftop area early .. it gets busy!

Made a guest list reservation for my birthday drinks and loved it! The venue was lovely and enjoyed spending some time on the roof terrace. Unfortunately on the night the weather wasn't great, so had to spend most of my night inside the bar. However this didn't take away from the brilliant time which was had by all. Really liked the selection of house music played too.....would definitely recommend a visit to anyone who is thinking of going xx
This is THE venue to go to for good house music in Shoreditch. Top that with the roof terrace (GET IT?!) and you are in for a night full of buzzy fun! hehehe love you Golden Bee (ps. amazing staff too) xx
great late night party venue, we stumbled across this place on our way through old street and couldn't resisting joining everyone on the terrace - you can see for miles! drank a couple of cocktails, danced A LOT. all in all, a good party place.

Smaller than we expected which didn't leave much room for dancing. Was reasonably priced with a great smoking area, although the upper roof terrace was shut. Bar tender were really cool and the cocktails had a great range and were really good. Try the pornstar!

a wonderful rooftop terrace for catching up with mates. the bar staff has proved really helpful with picking up the most interesting cocktails for u. give it a go if you are late working in shoreditch!


Had a great night here last night. Would definitely recommend this if you are looking for somewhere that opens a little later. Music was good - DJ played a few requests, and the staff were really friendly.


A fantastic new venue – and the rooftop terrace is a very welcome addition in an area badly in need of decent open air space that doesn't mostly involve standing in the street, dodging cars and passers-by. We held our annual summer party here and despite having been open for less than a fortnight, they did a sterling job. “Best party yet” all our staff exclaimed! Food was great, drinks were strong (just the way we like them!) and the staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for us. If they keep up these efforts it will quickly become, and remain, the go-to bar in the City. Thanks everyone at Golden Bee!


Hey guys when does golden bee open?


Went to Golden Bee for my brother's 40th. Had a great time. Buzzing place good music with no waiting time for drinks at bar. Try the apple crumble cocktail its fab! Would use it again for a party.


Been here, in the midst of the week, for a quiet get together with a friend. Though at first, it seemed empty, and lifeless, soon after 9 30PM, the entire ball started unleashing. More and more gorgeous ladies, were filling the premisses with their laughters and flamboyant cocktails. Some of them, gathered the attention of a mixologist who very keenly has started the roof fire for a cosy chillout. Seriously, good night, flushing with all sorts of dimly lit memories. I cannot stop laughing when I think about this place.


Hi Jessie - Golden Bee London opens next week so keep an eye out for their opening parties.

We had amazing cocktails here last Friday all executed by really friendly and helpful staff. The music is really good and the venue is very aesthetically pleasing with lovely decor and a stunning rood terrace. The terrace is nice and toasty warm even in winter too :) well worth a visit for a quality night out!
