FEST Camden | Rooftop Bar
Last Updated: 7th May 2019
The top floor of FEST Camden might not be the highest rooftop in the city…
…but it’s up there.
And the fact that they’re returning for a second summer with a new cocktail menu, live music and a pop up cinema… means that other venues will start to really look up to it.
The space itself is pretty, well, pretty, with a sizeable pergola covered in hanging plants & flowers garnishing the entire rooftop, plenty of tables, and some sweet views across North London and Camden Market itself (helped in a large way by the lack of large buildings to get in the way). Here’s what else they have going on up there:
The philosophy behind the bar up here seems to be that life’s too short to drink boring cocktails. So almost every typical spirit is given a twist – there’s prosecco popsicles (with popping candy), frozen bourbon slushies, and espresso martinis on tap; as well as a more typical list of cocktails, each named after a famous music festival. To keep you buoyed up, there’s also a Mediterranean grill up here serving BBQ mains, souvlaki and mezze to share, plus an oven for freshly baked pizzas. And you can enjoy it all to the soundtrack of live acoustic acts by day, and DJs by night, spinning disco and house.
On top of all this, they’re also reviving the Camden Rooftop Cinema Club, which’ll be showing flicks al fresco throughout the summer. Alongside the requisite rom coms (Bridget Jones’ Diary, Dirty Dancing, etc.), they’ll also be showing the final series of Game of Thrones on the big screen.
After all, summer is coming.
NOTE: FEST Camden is open daily from noon (until 2.30am Thurs-Sat). You can find out more and book a table HERE.
