Stratford’s swanky transformation shows no signs of slowing down as the neighbourhood gets set to welcome a luxury rooftop bar later this year.
Part of the uber-glam Gantry hotel, this 18th-floor drinking den will be the venue’s pièce de résistance, boasting sweeping views across the Olympic Park and East London beyond. Serving up a selection of handcrafted cocktails, the bar will be design-led, so expect high-end interiors and imposing architecture.
Hoping to become the go-to hang out spot for East Londoners in the summer months, the bar will boast an outdoor terrace, making the most of its sky-high vistas. There'll also be two more terraces on the first floor, designed with ‘destination dining’ in mind, alongside an indoor food market and several other bars.
Coming from the same team that built The Ned and Corinthia, you better believe this 291-room hotel will be plush to the max, and more than worth that Central Line pilgrimage.
