Five reasons to shoot over to Skylight Bar, Tobacco Dock
Located in East London’s Docklands area, within easy distance of Shoreditch, Peckham and Canary Wharf and with a privileged front row to London´s most iconic skyscrapers, the Skylight bar at Tobacco Dock is the must go after work rooftop of the summer.
You just can’t miss it. And here are 5 reasons why…
1) THE VIEW
Located on the top floor of an old multi-storey car park, this pop-up rooftop bar has four different levels with a bar on each one of them to make the best of your after work experience. From the entrance level you can get a panoramic view of the entire venue. But that is not the view that matters the most. The sky terrace, built on the top level will give you a postcard view of some of the city’s most iconic buildings, such as the Shard, the Gherkin and the Walkie Talkie.
2) THE FOOD
Just in time for when your appetite starts to whet, this fantastic venue collaborates with the best range of London’s street food. From We Serve Humans’ delicious burgers to Yiro’s mind blowing Greek food, not forgetting the best Thai food around from Kra Pow. Just don’t hang around enjoying the views for too long, food this good doesn’t last forever. Expect to queue unless you’re the early bird catching the proverbial worm. But FYI, it’s definitely worth the wait.
3) THE DRINKS
The different bars across the venue offer a huge range of drinks to choose from. Refreshing cocktails and bubbly champagne for the most sophisticated evenings and ice-cold ciders and beers to quench the thirst. But what use are drinks without the right atmosphere to enjoy them in? Well, Skylight bar caters to everyone’s needs. A live DJ for those of you that want to “get down” just as the sun begins to, over the beautiful London skyline. Or if dancing isn’t your thing – there are a plethora of sofas and seating areas where you can just unwind until your heart’s content. Well, at least until closing time anyway.
4) THE GAMES
Probably one of the best things you will find at Tobacco Dock that makes it stand out from other rooftop bars. Ideal to disconnect from the office stress and connect with your colleagues. Lawn bowls, three croquet lawns and two petanque courts bring a breeze of fresh air to the London evening scenery. Two to six people teams can book half an hour or hour slots on their favourite game and pre-booking is also available for groups of all sizes.
5) THE PEOPLE
From the creatives of East London to the suited bankers from the City, this urban British garden gathers the diversity that gives London its essence, all trying to get away from their busy lives to get together, exchange experiences and business cards and disconnect with a front row view of the City’s sunsets. And this is the best place to do it. Don´t take our word for it, check it out for yourself.
