If you’re seeking carefree, flamboyant fun in the city, then Bar Elba is the place to be. Situated sky-high by London Waterloo station, Bar Elba is a rooftop bar specialising in funky, fruity cocktails. The bar also dishes up moreish burgers and buns by gourmet joint Dip & Flip.
The establishment is decorated with bright colours, kitsch signage, and luminous twinkling fairy lights. The atmosphere screams young and fun and the clientele match this. Expect a crowd consisting of girly hen parties, birthday bookings, and groups of friends out for a good time in the capital.
The extensive cocktail list offers a long list of sweet treats, and I have to say the Pornstar Martini is one of the best I’ve sampled. The vegetarian potato rosti burger, topped with a fried egg, also makes for an ideal bite between draining those cocktails.
Tip: be sure to sign up to the mailing list online to receive a voucher for a complimentary cocktail on arrival. There are no hidden costs involved. Just expect a nice, thirst-quenching free cocktail waiting for you at the bar.
