Bar Elba Rooftop Bar in London

Waterloo, skyline
Burgers / Tacos / Shares
Year round


Vibrant and colorful Waterloo rooftop cocktail bar, with "good vibes only".

The rooftop Bar Elba is named after the Mediterranean island where Napoleon was exiled. But apart from the motto 'liberté, egalité, rosé', there is not that much real connection to Napoleon or the Mediterranean. But this rooftop in Waterloo is well worth a visit anyway.

The terrace is decorated in what seems to be the latest rooftop trend, with a large wooden deck and lots of community tables. And lots of color! There is also a retractable roof, making Bar Elba a year-round venue.

Surrounded with great views over Waterloo, with the London skyline as backdrop, you can enjoy refreshing signature cocktails, jugs of Sangria or some frozen creations. There is also a Happy Patty food menu, including burgers, tacos, hot dogs and shares.

Not shy of happenings, the summer season at Bar Elba includes both a Bottomless Rooftop Brunch every weekend, and Rooftop Cinema pretty much daily. Join these events, or just visit to enjoy all the vibes and the views.

Walk-ins are welcome at Bar Elba, but it is a popular venue, so reservations are recommended, especially for any of the events.
