Here’s a date for your diary: Skylight is returning to the rooftop of Tobacco Dock in London’s Wapping on May 3rd with its urban lawn club setting and a whole host of new additions, improvements and surprises.
There will be three floors of bars, street food, live entertainment, croquet, pétanque, screens, DJs and, of course, the wonderful view of London’s iconic skyline including The Shard, The Gherkin and The Walkie Talkie.
This year, Skylight, brought to you by Interact, will be bringing quintessentially British lawn games to new inner-city heights. An assortment of indoor and outdoor games, including four croquet lawns (two outdoor) and two pétanque courts for teams of two to six people for croquet and two to four people for pétanque. (please book your slot in advance). This year, Skylight will also be hosting tournaments and prize giveaways in a bid to find London’s best players as well as a penalty shoot-out football game in time for the World Cup.
Or, if that is too energetic for you, come and watch a Football World Cup game or Wimbledon Tennis match on the big screen with a cold beer or cocktail in hand. The all-new refreshing seasonal cocktail menu alongside spritzes, pitchers, bubbly and wine. Ice-cold beers on tap will include Staropramen, Blue Moon, Wolf Rock Red IPA and Sharps Brands , there will be Aspal Cyder on tap, the full range of Bacardi spirits and Laurent Perrier champagne by the glass and bottle.
The newly extended raised platform bar – doubled in size from last summer – will have a lounge feel with the city’s best sunset views. On the lower level, street food trader Yiro is back with a menu of ultimate summer dishes from around the world. Resident DJ collectives Gold Teeth and Coastal Haze will get the party going once every month, and the venue will host daytime events like rooftop yoga.
