Because we’ve all been there. You look at the listings, you plan a day party with your mates, then it all falls through last minute. Last night’s card bill / breakup / hangover is usually the cause. So what do you do now?

Cheer up – For all the talk of prices, clubs shutting down and weather, London has some of the best outdoor bars in the business. You’ve been stung once, but that’s no need to just head to your local: you don’t need to organise, don’t need tickets, guestlist access or even a specific night with any of these – just pitch up with two or ten of your mates and rescue that night out.


Various @ Queen Of Hoxton Rooftop

What: One of the best known rooftop bars of Shoreditch, the Queen of Hoxton ticks all necessary boxes – wooden decking, lots of empty space (both on the deck and between the heads of the various media fluff that routinely shows up) and movie nights. However it also has weekly sessions with some of London’s best emergent names stopping by for pre-game beats. Well worth a weekend beer.

Magic Roundabout

What: A multi-roomed outdoor bar complex, in the middle of Old Street roundabout. Magic ROundabout hosts regular daytime events throughout summer in particular, including the highly-rated Motown Mondays, Kitsune Maison and various other label takeovers. There’s also food provided by popups on site.

Dalston Roof Park

What: Formerly part of a wider project of gardens and volunteer workshops, Dalston Rooftop Bar’s occasional parties managed to draw the likes of Rudimental, Jessie Ware, Johnny Flynn, Basement Jaxx and Disclosure on vibe alone. Small wonder that they’ve quietly but surely stepped up to a fully fledged bar – with plenty of feet on their astroturf for events all summer long.

Prince Of Wales


What:
It’s undergone its fair share of both name changes and changing fortunes, but Prince of Wales is without doubt one of the best terraces in London. Eclectic line-ups include everything from bass and grime to reggae, jazz, house and techno, in winter it’s a sea of patio heaters and in summer that glorious two-level roof bar comes into its own. Drinks prices are also still just about reasonable. One of our favourites!

Netil360

What: A co-working space and design studio by day, one of Hackney’s fastest emerging venues by night. Netil 360 is one of the newest of the lot and, by all accounts one of the best!
