Roof East and Social Fun & Games Club at Stratford open until 30 September 2018

London’s biggest and best adventure playground for grown ups (big kids, really) at Roof East has had a celebratory makeover for 2018 – this year SFG Club has run off to the circus to celebrate 250 years of all things spectacular, and invites you to join it. The Circus originated right here in London town, and what way better way to celebrate this milestone than with this modern Circus playground. Sunsets, Olympic Park views, a round of golf, a swing and a hit, a hip-hop bowl and some street food to gorge on – what could be better? Roll up, Roll up to the Greatest Playground on Earth! 🎪 🌇

The roof is dressed in bell-tents and jugglers, providing the perfect backdrop for at-altitude gaming. A new look Birdies mini-golf set-up, Sluggers batting cages and hip-hop bowls will all be honouring the great art of Circus entertainment this year.

There’s a bar for everyone at Roof East this year – care for a low-cal kombucha cooler? Or perhaps a matcha tea cocktail? Bring on the cocktails (and the clowns!), they have you covered with the Roof East bar which will be serving up some delicious house punches. The SFG Club bar throws it all the way back to the 90’s with Singapore Slings and Alabama Slammers flying all over the shop before landing in your hand – and there’s even a Circus-themed cocktail – The Big Top Spritz – vodka, passionfruit and vanilla topped with prosecco. Watch out for the flaming cocktails being juggled between bartenders, if you’re lucky you might just get one. They fly through the air with the greatest of ease, those daring young bartenders on the flying cocktail trapeze I hear you say!

And supplying the Roof East bar with herbs for the drinks are GrowUp Box, Roof East’s resident educators in all things sustainable food. They produce salads and herbs in cities using a combination of aquaponic and vertical growing technologies. The GrowUp Box is definitely worth a visit when you’re done with the Circus! And if it’s food you’re after, you’ve come to the right place – the king of pop ups himself is back. Jimmy Garcia will be offering delicious summery grub including seaside classics like fish and chips, surf and turf and our favourite, halloumi fries.

If gaming ain’t your thing, Roof East will be offering Vinyasa Flow Yoga classes for all levels, put on by yoga enthusiasts Flow East Yoga. Grab tickets for one hour sessions on Thursdays and Saturdays throughout the summer.

Rooftop Film Club will be screening an epic selection of cinema treats up at Roof East as well this year – just look out for the stripey deck-chairs and a special Circus themed screening of ‘Moulin Rouge’.

Welcome to your new back yard. Pitch Stratford serves up chilled alfresco vibes and a jam-packed events schedule in a vibrant (and weather-proof) urban garden setting. 🌇 💁‍♀️ ☺️

Featuring street food, fully stocked bar and a giant screen for sports and films.

They’re running extended opening hours over the summer, particularly between 14 June and 15 July, when they’re hosting lots of FIFA World Cup screenings. ⚽️

Thursdays (from May onwards)
A wide range of fun activities to get stuck into. You can go alone or with friends and join in with anything from the Summer School series (all your favourite elementary school classes, redesigned for adults) to big-screen video games, double-date nights and East London’s freshest pub quiz.

Fridays
Celebrate the end of a hard week’s graft with a few after-work drinks (and a big party after). Go straight from the office with colleagues, then get your mates to join in later. Food and drink is of course served throughout and, when the music stops at Pitch, you can head across the road to the secret new speakeasy.

Saturdays
Family-friendly street food lunches, themed party nights – and a good few hours’ worth of open-air eating and drinking in between. During the day, you’ll find even more great street food than usual. A unique Saturday night is planned each week to see things interesting!

Sundays
