This past week we had the chance to attend the summer launch party for Skylight rooftop bar at Tobacco Dock in east London.
We didn’t know Skylight rooftop bar existed but wow, what a venue! We’ll definitely be back. Spread across three huge levels, Skylight includes undercover spaces (for when London weather isn’t playing nice), games, comfortable seating and unbeatable views over London.
Summer in London is here, and it means our rooftop bars are beginning to open their doors again, just in time for May’s first long weekend. After a long cold winter, we are ready to play.
Take a look around Skylight …. see you soon for summer in London.
We decided to treat ourselves to a ‘high end’ ‘bubbles Friday’ (and I wanted to ‘celebrity spot’), so sought out a few places around London renowned for fabulous clientèle and ambiance.
We swanned and sampled at Juju in Chelsea (Best DJ Bar 2012, Best Bar 2011, Outstanding Mixology 2010, Best New Bar 2009 at London Bar & Club Awards). Also, the gorgeous new London Buddha-Bar (the brand being internationally famous for compilations of lounge and dance ‘world music’, as well as divine restaurants in equally swanky locations such as Monte Carlo, Paris, Budapest, Dubai, Prague and Washington); and finally we stopped by a venue based on a friend’s recommendation, Sushi Samba – also located in various parts of the world, but this ‘high’-end restaurant boasts the highest rooftop bar in Europe, a delectable Japanese/Brazilian/Peruvian menu, excellent service and an all-round unbeatable experience. Class-plus, but be warned, chances are you’ll need to book – evening reservations are already difficult to obtain six months in advance.
