The perfect place for a post-work drink
Category: Venues | London Venue |
It’s safe to say that the summer weather was very much overdue and it seems the entire population of London couldn’t wait to get out there and top up their vitamin D as soon as the clouds cleared! Now this was great, but only if you were lucky enough to get there in time to nab yourself one of the hugely demanded outdoor tables. However, I for one am never one of the lucky few and therefore it seemed about time I went on the hunt for somewhere a little off the beaten track!
Somewhere that seems to tick all the boxes is the Dalston Roof Park in Ashwin Street. When it was first created its aim was to highlight the potential for urban development of green spaces even a city as tightly packed as London. It hosts a range of events such as outdoor film screenings, foodie evenings and a pop up bar open each evening from 5pm, all heightened by a fantastic view over the city!
With bright green Astroturf, plenty of chairs and grow bags full of seasonal blooms you’d never know you were on the roof of an old print house!! Not only that, but there’s also a frozen margherita machine providing the perfect way to chill out after a stressful day in the office. To top it off this hidden gem is free to visit, all you need to do is sign up to become a member online and give a small donation to the charity – providing access all summer long!
