Skylight 2018 | A Pop Up Rooftop Bar With Croquet Lawns And Cocktails
Things to do



Skylight | Wapping Rooftop Bar

Rooftop bars are already pretty big in East London.

But this one’s Wapping.

Taking over the top three floors of a former car park down by Tobacco Docks, Skylight is a rooftop playground decked out with astroturf greenery, colourful up-cycled pergolas and festoon lighting. It’s hidden atop what feels – for a long time – like an authentically disused car park, but you’ll emerge at the top of the stairs to find a cosy covered area filled with street food vendors (including Yiro with Greek gyro wraps, Flip Side’s burgers and melted cheese from the Raclette Brothers), as well as a bar, indoor croquet, and crate seating draped with furs.

Head up the ramp, and you’ll come to the rooftop bar, with picnic tables, covered pergolas, traditional games of horseshoe and skittles, and a view that’ll keep you there all night…

So don’t be surprised if the next day your voice is a bit croquet.


NOTESkylight is open Thurs & Fri 5-11pm, and weekends 12-11pm. Entry is free, and activities cost from £15/hour – you can book online HERE. Please note there is currently no disabled access to Skylight.
