Cocktails, Games & Rooftop Cinema: Roof East London Reopens For 2024

Roof East London Stratford Open | DesignMyNight

Sunshine and impressive views are all up for grabs at this free-entry East London rooftop

Get ready, as Stratford's giant playground Roof East is back in business for 2024 and is celebrating its 10th year. Along with Sluggers, the capital's highest batting cages, the 30,000 square foot space offers a number of colourful lanes from Glitter Bowls, a jungle-themed nine-hole crazy golf course with Birdies, the chance to go for the bullseye with Arrows, and free games like Jenga. But that's not all. There's also a jam-packed schedule of events, including The Big Fat Quiz Company quizzes, dance classes by the Curve Catwalk and Rooftop Film Club showing popular flicks ranging from Barbie to Ghostbusters.

Food is provided by a trio of tasty vendors, all offering meat and veggie dishes. Cheeky Burger is whipping up a range of patties on the grill, with a ‘best burger’ win at the British Street Food Awards to match. Meanwhile, Piddaji serves boat-shaped flatbreads from Turkey cooked in a wood-burning oven and Chick’n’Sours - the 'god of fried chicken' - completes the lineup as a new addition this year. The team will be shaking up a summery selection of cocktails too, such as a choice between the Malfy Rosa Spritz (gin, Cointreau, prosecco, and grapefruit and apricot soda) or Big Hitter’s (three kinds of Havana rum alongside grapefruit, pineapple, almond and pomegranate).

Now, this all sounds pretty sun-believable.

Roof East 2024 starts on 18th April at Stratford Multi-Storey Car Park, Great Eastern Road, E15 1BB. If you're in the mood for more, check out London's best summer pop-ups and sign up to our newsletter here.
