Skybar: pop-up rooftop bar opens in Tooley Street

Skybar is the Christmas reincarnation of Skyroom, an extraordinary rooftop pavilion commissioned by Roger Zogolovitch at Lake Estates.

The space, on the roof of Magdalen House, was designed by David Kohn Architects and was launched during the London Design Festival.

The pavilion is a clever mix of covered and open space, including a cantilevered balcony which overhangs the Tooley Street pavement.

Visitors can enjoy views towards the Tower of London in the north and Strata SE1 in the south.

The pop-up bar will be open between 5pm and 10pm on the following dates:
• Wednesday 8 December
• Thursday 9 December
• Friday 10 December
• Wednesday 15 December
• Friday 17 December
• Monday 20 December
• Tuesday 21 December
• Wednesday 22 December

Skybar is on the roof of Magdalen House at 148 Tooley Street which also houses the Architecture Foundation's offices and gallery.
