If you haven’t noticed from some of our previous blogs and guides, The Handbook loves rooftop parties and hangouts. This is because escaping the madness of the city and taking in stunning views of London in the sunshine is just a whole lot of fun. The latest one to come about for summer is Storeys Rooftop pop up – a food experience from event production company Afternoon Delight LDN.
Storeys will be located on top of the iconic former BBC Car Park at Television Centre in White City. A summer terrace hotspot, Storeys will be a cultural hub, featuring striking artwork, tasty street food and killer cocktails in a vibrant, urban setting. Spread over two levels, Storeys will offer sweeping panoramic views of west London, which is what a rooftop haunt is all about really.
The food promises not to disappoint with a rotating line-up of dynamic street food traders, including French-American fusion wizards Le Bun, Caribbean cookers White Men Can’t Jerk, and seafood foodies Crabbieshack. On Saturday and Sunday mornings, brunch can be enjoyed for those who didn’t quite wake up in time for breakfast! Brunch will feature Nicaraguan coffee, organic tea, free range BBQ sausages and smoked bacon rolls. Or, if you’re a bit worse for wear (probably why you didn’t make it to breakfast) you can grab a drink from the Bloody Mary bar and stretch out on our comfy double day beds, sleeping the regrets of last night alone.
However, Storeys isn’t just about wining and dining. They’ll also be plenty of other activities to keep you on the roof. There will be daytime game areas and DJs playing into the evening, providing the ultimate soundtrack to your summer. There will also be regular outdoor film screenings, and on Saturdays early birds can feed mind and body with rooftop yoga sessions hosted by the international wellness community Serene Social.
Storeys opens July 31st. Doors will open from 5pm on Fridays and from 11am on weekends.
