De la Bowl
London’s first urban lawn bowls experience has landed at the Social Fun & Games Club on Stratford’s Roof East. Already a big hit down under, lawn bowls is coming to London and it’s getting a hip-hop make over. Get your claw grips out, gather a gang of six and take to the green to throw some absolute shots. Recommended for teams of 6, a lane costs £48 for 40 minutes – the hip-hop is free.
Britain’s smallest rooftop pub
Britain’s smallest rooftop pub has officially launched with panoramic views across London. Measuring just 6ft by 8ft The Gardener’s Arms sits above John Lewis’s flagship Oxford Street shop, capturing all the charm of a favourite watering hole, whilst offering respite from the hustle and bustle of Britain’s busiest shopping street below. The snug little den will only allow space for one member of staff, but anyone with a thirst won’t be disappointed as it is surrounded by its own garden and has a much larger bar and restaurant just yards away. The space also includes bookable Summerhouses, each with a bespoke summer scent and their very own private front garden with white picket fence. Each Summerhouse hosts a different theme, including one inspired by the culture and music of the 70’s, one with a nod to travel and motoring and one a creative artist’s workshop space. The largest house ‘The Pavilion’, will accommodate up to 10 guests and, come the evening, will be available to book for larger celebrations and gatherings.
