Barbies with a View

The Queen of Hoxton is a bar, cub, and gallery all rolled into one. And that's just on the lower levels. During the summer they invite their guest to enjoy the sunshine way up high on the rooftop with a bird's eye view of the city. Open until September, the Summer Rooftop Club holds parties, workshops, and delicious barbecues. A colourful array of benches, gazebos, and a 360 swing seat turns it into a mini daily fairground.
