SquareMeal Review of
Dalston Roof Park Rooftop Bar
Back for a third consecutive summer, this idiosyncratic rooftop bar is a green idyll set above the gritty streets of Dalston. OK, the grass may be fake, but the raised beds brimming with vegetables
and herbs are most certainly real, tended by volunteer gardeners and used in the bar's cocktails. Boasting a stripped-back drinks list that runs from wines and draught Meantime beers to alcoholic
iced teas, it keeps hipsters happy while they’re lounging amongst the greenery. Membership for the summer is a mere £3 and plenty of events are planned, from weekly film screenings and acoustic
nights to weekend DJs. Food is also available sporadically, courtesy of a barbecue and street-food residencies. Be warned: you may want to take your own blanket to stay warm when the sun goes down.
