    The rooftop bar is one of the best in London on a sunny day. To avoid a half hour wait in the queue at the bar up top, buy your drinks from the ground floor bar on the way in.

    ... Ctd... and worth every penny. And on the non tight fisted side of things, when I forgot to get my change from the #only#1#cloakroom, the guy remembered me and duly and fairly did give me my £9!

    USE IT UP. WEAR IT OUT. Creative workshops operate here. Have fun decorating sunglasses, hats and even bags, a great way to meet new people! Do it! for more events

    While the venue has a hipster pedigree that verges on the intimidating you don’t have to wear thick rimmed glasses and an ironic cardigan to enjoy a drink and a movie on the glorious roof terrace. Read more

    Great rooftop bar with the remains of half a car that everyone wants to sit in. Nice randoms to challenge to a game of foosball downstairs too!

    They opened a winter wonderland on the roof and it's great. Specialty cocktails, fire and delicious food.

    With summer right around the corner, the Queen of Hoxton’s rooftoop bar and grill is sure to be packed. Come to relax, enjoy a lovely view of the Wharf, and drink away your worries.

    Ok on the door it was supposed to be £5 b4 9 but there's the artificial queue BS when I arrive BEFORE 9! And this guy comes up and says it's £8 now and well I end up paying £8 but it was fun good wet!

    When it's open (during summer), the rooftop is one of the great places to have a beer in the area.

    The amount of people is ridiculous, no way you can get a drink at the bar within 30 minutes, and the rooftop is for smoking only.

    Great rooftop bar very CBeebies styled! Loads of stairs to top, get drinks & especially CIGARETTES if you smoke before going up as they don't sell them up there. Needs MUSIC for more atmosphere really
