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.
