Skylight London rooftop bar at Tobacco Dock is an adult playground with great views of the London skyline. This old carpark now holds a three level rooftop bar where you during summer can play a game of croquet or petanque (boule) or watch the World Cup or Wimbledon on large screens.
Some late summer nights are also dedicated to rooftop parties with different DJ collectives raising the atmosphere closer to the sky.
Along with all the playing and events there is also great street food and a wide range of cocktails, beers and wines served at different stalls throughout the rooftop. The feel and the look of the rooftop is kind of a classic British garden party, in a modern suit.
In between the games and the fun you can kick back in one of the opulent day beds or lush garden booths. And while walk-ins are more than welcome at Skylight, the beds and boths need to be booked in advance.
One of the best London rooftop bars for some summer evening fun. But the season also continues long after the warmer months. During September-October the rooftop shifts focus to harvest with ingridients like world beer, ciders, bratwurst and pumpkins. And during November to January, Skylight turns in to a rooftop ice rink, one of few in Europe.Last updated: June 15, 2020
