Roof East is managed by Urban Space Management Ltd. Formerly an empty rooftop car park, Roof East is a bar, event space, open air cinema and a community space.
With support from The GLA Pocket Park Fund and the Stratford Renaissance Partnership Urban Space Management teamed up with Groundwork London to install an Urban Park on the car park roof.
Recycled pallets and scaffold boards and even recycled decking from the Olympic Park footbridge were used to make planters full of shrubs and saplings to bring colour and scents to the space.
In a nod to the former car park use we even have three cars filled with earth and plants. Now trees grow up through their roofs (well, two are convertibles!).
Can I bring my kids? What are the age restrictions?
You’re welcome to bring your kids between 12pm and 5pm every Saturday and Sunday. Over 18s only are allowed after 5pm. Make sure to check "What’s on" for our family offers and family events.
Is it free to get in? Do I need to book Cinema/ Sluggers/ Golf/ Roller disco tickets to enter?
It’s completely free to get in and you don’t need activity tickets to enter the rooftop. Roof East Bar, Street Food stalls and urban park area are open to all and free to access.
Can I bring my own food and drink?
We don’t allow bringing your own food and drink (and also glass- make sure to leave your glass items at home!), but we’ve got street food and drinks available on the rooftop to buy.
