Hold the phone – there's a new rooftop pop-up opening at the end of this month and it isn't in east London. Even more shockingly, it's in west London – on the top of the former BBC Television Centre in White City, no less. Storeys 'pop-up food experience' opens on July 31 and will taking over two floors of the old BBC car park spanning 24,000 square feet and bringing together that magic mix of street food, cocktails and awesome views.
Open Friday nights and all weekend throughout the summer, Storeys (not to be confused Stories on Broadway Market) will have a rotating roster of street foodies including Le Bun, White Men Can’t Jerk and Crabbieshack, a bloody mary and rum bar (separately, together would be gross) and a TV bar serving up more standard boozy beverages.
Over the weekend there will be brunching, day beds to crash out on, early morning yoga, outdoor film screenings and DJs spinning a sunset soundtrack. It'll be kitted out with murals from budding young artists and more established street artists and built with reclaimed materials (of course it will). It all sounds well worth checking out, especially as there's talk on their Facebook page of turning the old car park ramp into a water slide. Guys, you had us at street food, but we'll bring our swimmers just in case.
There's hardly any info on their website yet. If you don't believe us, head to storeys.london.
