A mere hop, skip and ladylike stumble from Dalston Kingsland station is the Print House, a four-storey former factory which is home to the innovative Bootstrap Company and the annual outing of the Dalston Roof Park. This summertime the Dalston institution has reopened with new decking, garden and a bar. There are going to be gigs, parties, weekly film screenings, supper clubs and yoga. Worth the climb.

I love this rooftop bar, really nicely kept and they seem to manage the number of people going in well. Theres always a good selection of cocktails and interesting events scheduled throughout summer.

My top tips would be sign up online (you'll need to be a member to enter), leave work early and get your whole crew down- it is often one in one out quite early and its a pain if only half of you make it up!


This place is great from April to mid October. There are many events and gigs throughout the weekends in the sun. Amazing DJs that play into early hours. Film screenings and many many other events. £5 membership charge is definitely worth it. Just make sure to arrive early, before 5pm on weekdays and 2pm weekends.

Great views, but you have to pay £5 entry (for "membership" - I paid this the year before but told that I was no longer a member and needed to pay again) and its generally very very busy and quite a small space. Visit on a weekday evening if you want to enjoy this.

This is by far one of my favourite rooftops in the city. Very cosy and quirky with lots of fun events, it is a great place to enjoy a drink or two (or ten! - it is very difficult to leave the rooftop once you've finally managed to get on it) when the sun is out. The only negative thing about it is its popularity. Arrive early to avoid queuing for over an hour!

I went myself yesterday and we were asked by a young hipster on the door to pay £5 to get some membership, which he did not say what allow you to, if we wanted to join the roof. Just another way to make an "all hipster" space in Dalston. Go to the park instead!

This is awesome! I am preparing a trip for London fans and want to show things items "they do not know" and I will certainly go and pay a visit to the roof park! Thanks!!! .


My work colleagues and I use the roof at lunch time and it is a very pleasant place during the summer, always interesting people there. It will be interesting to see how it works during the evening with drinks and music, I will definitely go!!


its fantastic, the only problem was the weather but when it gets warm , it will be on of the most loved places to have your drink.. (ps expand the cellar ,meaning more options on the drinks)
