Nightset’s pick of the best London rooftop bars this summer

Trust us, there’s nothing like gazing over London’s famous skyline, cocktail in hand on a warm summer Friday evening. So it’s a good thing London has such incredible rooftop bars and clubs. We know you’ll love these, so we made you a roundup of the best London rooftop bars.

Radio Rooftop

This is honestly one of the most beautiful bars in London. The cocktails are almost as good as the view (because seriously, how could you beat this?). We’d recommend the London Sunrise, a mix of Patron Silver, Aperol, Passion Fruit and Aloe Vera Water.

Radio rooftop moves from bar to club, so it’s perfect if you want your evening to get a little more lively. Plus, they do an amazing brunch between 11am and 5pm on the weekends. A stunning place to drink and a lovely place to cure your hangover, what more could you ask for?

Frank’s Cafe

This is a London rooftop bar with a twist. The twist, of course, is that the drinks here are very affordable. A glass of wine starts at £4.40, and the most expensive (and delicious) cocktails are only £7.50.

Plus, this place is unmistakably cool. Franks has hosted the summertime non-profit commissioning art project Bold Tendencies for 10 years. It’s wildly popular, having attracted half a million visitors to the car park. You also can’t miss the all-pink staircase – it’s one hell of a photo opportunity is Frank’s instagram is anything to go by.

Children and pets are welcome too at this London Rooftop, so bring the (whole) fam for a summer-ey dose of culture if you want to.

Dalston Roof Park

We couldn’t put it better ourselves:

“Framed by the city skyline, our rooftop oasis transforms what was once a forgotten space into a garden music venue, plushly turfed and brimming with flowers, palm tree’s and a Martin Audio Soundsystem.”

Dalston Roof Park is another excellent London rooftop. It has an impressive retractable roof in case you’re worried about the weather. It’s also a good guilt-free option. The bar and club focuses on sourcing local, seasonal and ethical produce and profits made all go towards funding Bootstrap Company’s charitable aims. That’s a pretty nice feeling while you’re sipping a cold beer and watching the sunset over London.

The Queen Of Hoxton

The Queen of Hoxton means sipping a cold drink on a warm day isn’t just relaxing, it’s cool. Plus, they’re making the absolute best of it with some seriously crazy parties.

We loved their ‘Welcome to Miami’ bash with OUSE. Just to show you how cool this venue is, they transformed each floor into a different place in Miami. The basement became “the South Beach Disco, a neon soaked synth paradise pumping out all the best in retro house, techno & electro.” On the middle floor was a “Vice city Block party” which played the best 80s Hip hop and funk Miami had to offer. Last but not least, the rooftop played host to a massive silent disco, blasting some more bangin’ 80s classics.

If you’re looking for great summer rooftop parties in London, The Queen of Hoxton will deliver, so keep your eyes peeled.


We hope you feel inspired to make the most of London now the sun’s out (because you never know how long that’ll last)! Let us know if there’s any you think we should add!
