SquareMeal Review of
The Pearl at Roof East
Balmy evenings alfresco, sundowners and sunsets over Stratford, that’s the lure of London’s latest rooftop bar, open until autumn 2014 atop a disused car park that has morphed into an ‘urban park’
with vintage sports cars as planters. Take in a programme of recent and classic films on the big screen (headphones and deckchair supplied), along with various happenings, dance and drama too.
Catering rights go to the guys at Hackney Pearl – so graze on brunch and breakfast staples, salads grown
on the roof, cakes, pastries, rosemary-seasoned pork burgers or mackerel with romesco and rocket. To drink, kick back with Meantime beers and Orchard Pig cider on tap, wine from £3.80 a glass,
Aperol spritzes, watermelon alco-coolers and cocktails referencing the night’s movie selection – think Pink Air Head (Moscato rosé, vodka and strawberries) to go with Clueless.
