4 out of 5 stars

A pared-down London Fields rooftop with panoramic views.

One thing you should know about this Hackney rooftop bar is that there’s a bit of a walk before you get to the top (nine flights of stairs to be precise, and there’s no lift). But boy, when you do, it’s simply divine.

First things first: the view. I’d be seriously suspicious of anybody who doesn’t get at least a hint of an urge to document the aptly named Netil360 on Instagram Stories as soon as they arrive. More could be done with the space – the artificial grass flooring scattered with wooden benches and upcycled furniture isn't the most aesthetic look, but the panoramic, full-circle views of London make up for it tenfold.

As such, people don’t come for the drinks – which is probably a good thing, as the menu is limited to wine, beer and little else, and those don't come cheap. But they were served with a smile, and an Aperol Spritz (£10.50) was big, refreshing and just the right combination of bitter and bubbly. You might expect a bar of this nature to be chock-full with a rowdy after-work crowd, but the clientele seemed to be surprisingly unassuming.

The disco ball and funky music suggests that Netil360 can get quite lively as the sun goes down, plus punters have the option to move inside if it gets nippy. Believe me, once you’ve climbed those stairs, you’ll want to settle in for sunset.

One of the favourite spots, definitely my lost loved rooftop bar. Very chilled out, love hanging out here on a sunny day, on beanbags, listening to music and sipping on G&T.

360 view of the city, pizzas if you are hungry .. And just that ‘ feels like home’ feeling. Life is good.

I visited Netil360 several times over the years, I worked from here when it was a co working space and had a birthday party last year as well. It keeps changing but it's still my favorite place to go for a beer with friends during the summer. Beers and Spritz are quite reasonable and you can usually find an empty spot to sit as well.

Netil360 has a killer view of London's beautiful skyline and is the perfect way to spend a summers evening. I thought the drinks were reasonably priced at £4 for a beer and they offered gluten free so I was very happy. The bar is spacious and I imagine it gets absolutely rammed on a sunny day. Luckily I went midweek so it wasn't very busy which meant I had the choice of all the sofas and beanie bags to sit on and take in that view. They also offer pizzas (normal and gluten free) which I unfortunately didn't try but definitely will when I next go. What could be better than eating pizza and drinking beer on a roof top in Dalston? 100% recommend checking it out before it closes in September and we head into the wintery months.

A great space to spend a sunny day. It's pretty big so although i'd imagine it gets busy on the hottest days of the year, there still should be plenty of room to perch with a drink. 


Excellent views, friendly staff and reasonably priced alcohol - i'm not sure there's a better summer combination than that!


One thing to bear in mind is you do have to climb several flights of stairs to get up to the roof. Sounds obvious but i'd leave the heels at home unless you have thighs of steel!

Aside from the 10 million stairs you need to walk up to reach the roof (this may or may not be an exaggeration) this place is a pretty cool spot for a bit of rooftop drinking. I attended the launch party of the Aperol Spritz season last week and loved the way the space can be transformed for certain occasions. It appears to be a pretty decent blank canvas - not too refined (the toilets are practically porta loos) but being Hackney i'd expect and want nothing less. This is a cool spot for rooftop socialising and in the Summer there isn't much more you could want!

I just love it! It's a great place to have a drink after work and just forget about life for a moment. The view is stunning, especially when it's a blue sky background.

It's not the most obvious entrance and you have to climb a fair amount of stairs, but once you enter the roof terrace it has all been forgotten.

The staff is direct and strict, but not unnecessary rude and the prices slightly higher than you are used to, but for me it was definitely worth it. It's best to arrive in the late afternoon in order to find a nice spot, as it gets busy after 6pm.


Best rooftop hang in London. Massive in size with the most incredible 360 views across London. Just beware of all of the bloody stairs and the overeager bouncers.

Grab a couple of buddies, head to Broadway Market, and then head up here for a couple of beers. Great place to just hang out catch some rays away from a busy road and those creepy crawlies you find in parks. 


Only down side is that the security is used to working in a club-like environment so they're direct and harsh, coming off as pretty rude rather than welcoming you with a fun summer vibe. Maybe I caught them all on a bad day, but not a great first impression. 


The spot has some other strange rules, like beanbags that are 'indoor' and 'outdoor' specific, which is an open-air bar seems pretty ridiculous. 


Generally a nice place to hang out, but I like Frank's way more.

Easily one of the best rooftop views in the capital, the only downside to Netil360 is potentially having to fight for the outside bean-bags on the busier weekend days. With an unassuming entrance and a walk up several flights of stairs, you can reward yourself at the bar with a much needed pint. Very chilled and with friendly bar-staff, you can also grab a pizza at the pop-up place (Hackney Pizza) to the left of the bar.

Netil360 is absolutely amazing. If there is any suggestion the sun will be coming out I would recommend heading to this rooftop because, surprisingly, it's not incredibly crowded compared to others I have been to (provided you arrive early) and there's even bean bags/massive cushions spread across the floor in case all the tables are gone. It's spacious and the view is incredible, the music is very chill, and the general vibe is laid-back and friendly. Really nice and chatty staff as well, although the pint slightly on the pricier side (approx 5 quid). A must for summer!

Netil360 offers great drinks, great music and a great atmosphere. This is an amazing rooftop to spend summer evenings hanging with friends, perching on wooden benches and colourful cushions under strings of cute fairy lights, which provide pretty lovely illuminations in the dark space. There’s a really nice laid back vibe and everyone is really friendly, and as the 360 name suggests, you get brilliant views of the city from up there. The views, easy going soundtrack and fairy light set up is all a bit romantic and is guaranteed to make you feel happy. Plus as it closes fairly early there are no rowdy types who’ve had a few too many beers, just people chilling, chatting and loving life. All in all just a really nice hang out spot. Experience it now in all its summer glory, because as the weather forecast suggests- winter is coming…


I love Netil. The staff are fantastic and the general vibe is really chilled out. There is absolutely no pretension either!

A very hipster yet amazingly relaxed outdoor rooftop space, ideal spot for drinking on sunny afternoons and warm summer evenings. Less well-known than the Dalston Roofpark so usually easier to get into without having to queue for hours on end. If like me you don't get anything done at home and need a busy cafe buzz to get you into work mode then this is a great spot for that as they have a few work stations as well as wifi available. In short, I love this place, but really wished they would do something about their beer selection. No matter how great the atmosphere is, this one simply cannot get any work done on Red Stripe alone.

Really chilled and fun place to spend a few hours on a sunny afternoon. It´s also a great space to do some work as there are work stations and free wifi. Sometimes I have been unlucky and a large area has been shut off for a private booking. Another negative development over the summer was shutting down the coffee bar...

Super spacious roof top bar if you're in the area.


Guest food stalls and a brilliant cocktail menu this is a lovely space to waste away an afternoon in the sunshine. Seems really quiet up at Netil 360 compared to the hustle and bustle of the surrounding streets and well worth the climb.


Occasionally they have the hot tubs out or djs playing- always worth checking the website for exciting events. Their music licence seems to be quite early so if you're looking for a big night plan a place to go to after around 10.
