Tobacco Dock takes summer to a new level

Tobacco Dock takes summer to a new level

Launched this week at Tobacco Dock in Wapping, London, Skylight is set to be one of London's more quirky rooftop destinations.

Themed around a British urban lawn club, Skylight combines croquet and petanque with cocktails and street food, taking al fresco to a whole new level.

Occupying the top three levels of a former car park in the heart of East London, the 600 capacity Skylight features multiple bars, three croquet lawns, petanque courts and street food stalls, all set against some of the finest views in the city.

Created by Interact and the team behind Tobacco Dock, this original rooftop project boasts unobstructed views of some of London’s most iconic buildings – such as The Shard, The Gherkin and The Walkie Talkie – and is part of the extensive regeneration in Wapping that is establishing the area as a destination place to go out and have fun.

Capturing the essence of a quintessentially British garden party and transporting it into an urban setting, Skylight’s signature lawn games feature across the different levels of the venue, including two petanque courts, lawn bowls and three croquet lawns.

In addition to a tasty summer drinks menu served at bars on all three levels, the street food menu includes burgers courtesy of We Serve Humans as well as Thai options from Kra Pow and Greek from Yiro.

Opening hours: Thursday & Friday 5pm – 11pm, Saturday & Sunday – 12pm – 11pm

Open Bank Holidays.
