‘Here for a good time not a long time’ is their motto and I was not disappointed. Not even when it rained!
Opened very briefly after lockdown one as we all know the drill of November 2020. But as of April 12th they were back as another new rooftop to the London scene. Cheers to that!
First thing to note is where is the rooftop! 🤣 As it’s a tricky find. Sat on top of a an old building at the end of the bridge. It does feel like you are in the wrong place. But there was a helpful sign and an orderly queue and bouncers in a deserted area felt a little like Franks rooftop in Peckham so o knew this was it. And like Franks.. there’s steps, 98 to be precise! Which have been decorated for us! (Do contact them if you have mobility issues.)
Once up you are greeted by the nicest funest staff who genuinely seem to care you have a good time. Tables are allocated and all very well organised (I do hope post Covid table bookings will continue)
Capacity is 200 and the rooftop winds down from the bar and views of the shard to those of the city and St Paul’s further in the distance.
But it’s the shard that is the draw. Stood, what feels like in touching distance, over you it is pretty impressive.
And that view was pretty impressive in the rain too! Yup this rooftop is not one to concede defeat when it showers down. Big umbrellas on most tables and some areas in the corners are covered, the staff (who are getting soaked) also go out of their way to help everyone be as dry as is possible… but do bring a brolly! Rose in the rain turned out to be quite fun and a lot of laughter and banter between tables!
Food wise was limited to burgers but brunch is coming soon. It really is all about drinks with shots featuring high on the menu! (Also no coffee but lots of soft options.)
So if you looking for a good time, tunes playing all day long with staff who couldn’t be happier and kinder (special note to Rachel who was brilliant) yet you still want to be in your PJs this place is so chill you probably could rock up in them! Enjoy!
