Skylight | Wapping Rooftop Bar
Last Updated: 7th May 2019
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’s Greek gyro wraps), as well as a bar and crate seating draped with furs.
Head up the ramp, and you’ll come to the rooftop bar, with picnic tables, bookable day beds covered pergolas, croquet, pétanque, 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.
NOTE: Skylight is open from Thurs-Sun throughout the summer. Entry is free, and activities cost from £15/hour – you can book online HERE.
