Netil 360

1 Westgate St, Hackney, E8 3RL

The unencumbered view of the city is spectacular and worth legging it up nine flights of stairs.

The later in the evening you go, the higher the risk of waiting in a que that can spiral down several flights of stairs. Pimms and Aperol Spritz on tap. Astroturf on rooftop. Positive vibes.

NT’s

207, 1 Westgate St, Hackney, E8 3RL

Around the corner from Netil 360, is the grungier (in a good way) NT’s - a warehouse style cocktail bar.

The rooftop terrace looks over the overground line and onto the city skyline.

Queen of Hoxton

1 -5 Curtain Rd, Hackney, EC2A 3JX

A multi-purpose space that includes a rooftop, which is home to the venue’s film club and various pop-ups and themed events throughout the year.

In pre-coronavirus days, the basement bar played host to gigs, cabaret and comedy shows, while the drag bingo and weekly parties carried on into the night on the ground floor.

Golden Bee
