Rooftop Bars in East London

London is known to be quite dreary, but with temperatures in the 20s and up to look forward to for the rest of the summer you should be out enjoying the sun as much as possible. Don't worry, we're not suggesting that you shouldn't spend your days drinking (that would be appalling). But indoor pub and bar scenes can get quite stuffy in the summertime heat so check out our recommended list of fabulous rooftop bar locations to enjoy beautiful drinks and beautiful views.

Artsy and delicious, that's what this East London rooftop bar is. Queen of Hoxton makes the most of its Shoreditch location by hosting live music acts, art shows, and a rooftop cinema club in its ever-changing upstairs garden, complete with a kitchen and BBQs that are always summer-ready.

For an industrial feel, NT's has got you covered with its warehouse style cocktail bar, windows that look out onto railway tracks and a heated rooftop terrace overlooking East London's skyline. By night, the laid-back lounge becomes a hub for the city's best promoter and DJ-hosted parties.

Perched on the top of the old London Courthouse, Upper 5th is a highly sought-after East London rooftop retreat. Soak up the sights and sounds of the city below while sipping cocktails, grazing on canapes and enjoying a playlist of hits from the world-class sound system.
