Roof East 2023 | Rooftop Playground with Bars & Street Food
If there’s one thing a car park rooftop really comes into its own for in the summer, it’s parking cars.
But if there’s another thing, it’s hosting throngs of frolicking Londoners in a bunting-strewn outdoor oasis filled with high-altitude games, cocktails and deep-fried cookie dough.
So welcome back to Roof East, the rooftop playground that looked at what Stratford was missing, and added twice as much. For Summer 2023, they’ve brought back all the bookable big-hitters of their previous pop-ups, including a row of neon-lit lawn bowls lanes; a Birdies crazy golf course (where you can putt at the level of actual birds); archery lanes; fast-paced batting cages courtesy of Sluggers; and a load of free games you can just turn up and play, including Kubb, cornhole and giant jenga.
There’s also a ‘beat the bar’ challenge, which is mainly there to facilitate settling, once and for all, which of your group can hang off a bar the longest. If you beat the world record (16 mins, 3 seconds) you’ll get free entry to Roof East’s games, forever.
And, presumably, a world record.
And that little mini rooftop tucked around the corner? That’s where Rooftop Film Club are pitching up for the summer with their programme of new releases, cult classics, and singalongs (and tickets are on sale now).
On top of all that, you’ll find a grand total of five bars; a trio of street food stalls slinging burgers, tacos and Turkish pide; and a regular line-up of events including quiz nights, catwalks and Eurovision parties.
Which finally brings us to the best part of all – Roof East is perched overlooking London, and it’s totally free to head up there.
It’s the tops.
NOTE: Roof East is now open – you can book games, and find out more, right HERE.
