There's plenty of drinks, street food and games going on at the rooftop experience.
It’s almost summertime and the weather is starting to warm up here in the UK, so what better time to enjoy a few drinks with mates on a rooftop bar. London’s Roof East has opened for another year and thanks to SFG Club, there’s going to be plenty of food and entertainment available; including a brand new virtual reality (VR) foosball experience.
Londoners will be able to head down to Roof East to see the new House of Foos, a covered part of the rooftop complex which features a four-player VR foosball experience. The controls will be familiar but the content will take foosball gameplay to a new immersive level. It’s strictly 4-player, so visitors will need some friends or coerce some willing strangers to play. Each session is 10 minutes for two games and costs £5 GBP per person.
After working up a hunger and thurst visitors can then enjoy the new Roof Eats concept, food stalls serving street food from around the world. Stalls include Eat Chay, indulgent vegan food with flavour inspirations from traditional Vietnamese and Korean cuisines; Kolkati, serving North Indian inspired ‘Kati Rolls’ – a flaky egg-fried paratha wraps, filled with masala chicken or paneer and The Burger Project, a burger bar run by Jimmy Garcia. Of course, Roof East will also feature 3 bars, with a selection of new cocktails such as the rum and raspberry ‘Knickerbocker Royale’ to blue tequila ‘Electric Boogaloo’.
There’s also plenty more to do, 6 gaming lanes offer curling, bowling or shuffle and five free games offer visitors Cornhole, Jenga, Table Tennis, Foosball (normal) and Table-top Curling. Baseball fans can jump into the Sluggers batting cages or for a less energetic sport there’s country garden themed Birdies crazy golf. Or for those that really need to de-stress Flow East Yoga will be on hand to offer Vinyasa Flow Yoga classes, suitable for all levels.
Roof East is open Tuesday – Sunday, weekdays 5pm – 11pm and weekends 12pm – 11pm. There isn’t an entrance fee so it’s free to enjoy the view. Adult tickets for games start from £8 and can be booked on the website. May also sees the return of the Rooftop Film Club featuring a programme of new releases, cult classics and other cinematic spectacles.
