Skylight Review

Skylight is featured in these Guides:

Top 10 things you should know about Skylight:

1) Did someone say rooftop? Skylight is a disused car park turned bar near Wapping in east London featuring drinks, games and street food. It’s also one of the best rooftop bars in London. Best of all, entry is FREE!

2) Ascend to the rooftop via the car park stairway to work up the anticipation and appetite. A ramp is also available. You will be greeted by hungry and thirsty east London regulars and locals as well as some office folk celebrating team nights out.

3) Skylight is open Thursday-Sunday for most of the year, so take a date and enjoy the London skyline with views of City if London landmarks such as the Gherkin and the Cheesegrater. You can also take the family - kids and dogs are welcome during the daytime.

4) Skylight isn't just for summer. The autumn season welcomes warming beers, ciders and parties, while festive igloos appear for the winter season.

5) Rain or shine, there are always games and activities (prices vary), such as croquet and petanque in the summer. Between November and January, Skylight is home to Europe's only rooftop ice rink. Show off those Torvill and Dean moves then warm up with a fondue. Make sure you book these in advance.

6) What about the good old unpredictable British weather? Don't worry. There are plenty of covered areas and heaters all around the venue. If it really starts to rain, everyone can gather on level 9 where DJs spin tunes into the night.

7) Grab a drink at one of the four bars, from pints to pretty cocktails. The Ginger Paloma hits the mark with Patron Silver tequila, grapefruit, lime and ginger beer.

8) The high vantage point doesn't mean sky high prices. Pints start at the £5 London standard and a bottle of wine is yours for £22.

9) Don’t forget the grub. We tried halloumi fries and a wholesome buttermilk fried chicken burger. Street food changes according to the season. Be sure to check out their website too for one off partied throughout the year including their famous two-day Halloween party.

10) Make a day of it and visit Tobacco Dock on the other side of the building which hosts events all year round from the London Tattoo Convention through the ever popular Taste of London (the festive edition). It's just a 5-minute stroll from Shadwell station but if you have had a few sherberts, it’s easier to grab an Uber home.
