Flipper’s Roller Boogie Palace

Opens

Now Open


When Usher rolls into town for a big night out? You know it's going to go off. And that's exactly what happened when he made a grand entrance to the opening of Flipper’s Roller Boogie Palace, on four wheels, with a horde of roller skaters in tow.

An iconic American roller skating rink in the late 70s, Flippers is has seen a 2022 revival through branded merch and a New York residency at Rockefeller Center over the summer... now it's time for London to get a taste from co-founders Liberty Ross and Kevin Wall, alongside partner Usher.

Choosing Shepherd's Bush as its base, this huge venue is the perfect home for the growing subculture of British street skaters, as well as those of you after a fun night out in the city. Situated moments from Westfield, Flippers is open late on the weekends, with live music and DJs (the opening night saw Central Cee and Kaytranada performing). 

Worked up an appetite? On-site American diner, Hot Dogs and Caviar, is cooking up classics from burgers and caviar fries to twists like deep fried peanut butter and jelly.
