Hottest New Rooftop This Summer: Skylight at Tobacco Dock

The hottest destination in town this summer has just opened on 25th May, at the Tobacco Dock in Wapping. Skylight is an urban lawn club, with outdoor games, street food and, of course, amazing rooftop views for a quintessential London experience.

The huge new space, which takes over the top 3 floors of a former parking garage in East London between Shoreditch and Peckham, is set to be summer’s hottest hangout. With games like petanque and croquet on each level, along with several bars, it is a great place to grab a group to play and drink a sunny day away.

Food-wise, you have the pick of some of London’s hottest names in street food, such as the souvlaki from Yiro and fab burgers from We Serve Humans. Drinks are spritzes and bubbles by the glass along with beer and wine, along with drink pitchers and fresh cocktails.

Offering views of some of London’s iconic buildings, the all day venue is the place to be for afternoon drinks, after work cocktails and sun-filled weekend days out.

Open Thursday- Friday 5pm- 11pm, Saturday- Sunday 12pm- 11pm
