The roof garden at Golden Bee is already one of Shoreditch’s most loved venues. People looking for outdoor bars in London are never disappointed when they discover our luxurious, secluded rooftop bar, just a stone’s throw from Old Street tube station and the trendy East End neighbourhood of Shoreditch. Now, you can come and enjoy the spectacular views and delicious drinks as we reopen our doors to the public under government-approved social distancing guidelines. We’re also introducing new opening hours, which will see the roof terrace bar open seven days a week. This means you’ll be able to pop in for a cocktail or organise your event at one of London’s most unique and sought after venues anytime you like!

Whether you’re a returning regular, or a new customer looking forward to enjoying a professionally mixed cocktail at one of London’s best bars after months at home, you’re welcome to join us in the roof terrace bar at Golden Bee. We value the wellbeing of our patrons and our staff above everything, so we’ve made some important changes to ensure that everyone can enjoy their night as safely as possible.

We’re incredibly lucky at Golden Bee to have one of East London’s best roof gardens. With views over the city skyline and an all-weather canopy system in place, it’s already enjoyed by thousands of revellers all year round. The main, indoor bar will remain closed for the foreseeable future, but from the 4th of July, we will be able to welcome you and your friends back for drinks and fun in the fresh air. We’re also delighted to announce that our happy hour deals will be available from Monday to Thursday.

Studies have proven that outdoor spaces are far safer in terms of managing the spread of Covid-19, so, as things move forward, outdoor bars in London are going to be among the best places to let your hair down and meet with good friends. Golden Bee is always prepared to provide a brilliant summer space away from the stress of the city for your relaxing drinks, or for your special occasions. We are advising all groups to book in advance to ensure a spot in our new, socially distanced seating plan.

The seating in the roof terrace bar has been carefully spaced out, allowing enough space to practice social distancing. You’ll be able to enjoy your time soaking up the sun in the open air at Golden Bee safe in the knowledge that all available hygiene and biosecurity precautions are in place. Staff will be wearing suitable protective equipment, the space will be cleaned regularly with products proven to kill Covid-19, and there will also be hand sanitiser stationed at the entrance and around the venue. At Golden Bee we are dedicated to offering you a relaxing escape from the stresses of the city, and we’re delighted to be offering this world class roof garden experience to our customers every day of the week from the 4th of July.

During your visit to Golden Bee, you’ll be able to enjoy our tranquil, all-weather terrace with the musical accompaniment of some of the city’s best DJs. We’ve got a fantastic line up who will help you get into that summer party mood in the open air. All you need to do is book a table, bring your friends and select some drinks from our extensive menu of beers, wines, spirits and premium cocktails. Just because the main bar isn’t open, that doesn’t mean our Happy Hour is no longer in place. We’re going to be running it from Monday to Thursday. So, if you’re after the best drinks deals in town, then you’ve found the right place!

Due to the reduced capacity under social distancing measures, the best way to ensure a prime spot for your group, overlooking the city skyline, is to book ahead with us online. At Golden Bee, we’re experienced in handling bookings of all sizes, and this will be no different after we reopen our doors. If you’re celebrating a special occasion with us and have a particular request or idea for your event, then you can discuss it with our events team and they’ll do their best to accommodate your wishes. More information on bookings and events can be found at www.goldenbee.co.uk
