Beefeater Gin Masterclass - 24th September 2019 and 1 other offer

With a sleek interior hosted within an old Georgian town house and a stage for live bands, there's already enough reason to visit the Bird of Smithfield. But once summer hits, their roof is transformed into an Aperol Spritz Terrazza! So while sipping on their extensive list of cocktails, you can look out at the city all while soaking up the summer sun.

Queen of Hoxton

£10 Multi-Venue Entry Wristband on Fridays for Colours Hoxton, Queen of Hoxton & The Book Club!

The Queen of Shoreditch serves both as a rooftop bar in London and a hub in one of the most interesting parts of the capital. Downstairs is decorated with window etchings, graffiti and ivy, but upstairs, the rooftop bar showcases the unique views of Hoxton. So grab a stool, have a bite to eat in the BBQ and take in the sights.
