Wagtail Rooftop Bar & Restaurant London Events
Nestled on top of a landmark art deco building overlooking London Bridge, Wagtail Rooftop is one of the Capital’s newest event hubs. Set across two floors, it features a retro-inspired bar and restaurant flanked by two open-air terraces for alfresco functions.
One level up is a leafy rooftop bar with unrivalled views over London and a retractable cover for rainy days. And beside this is the quirky cupola dining room – ideal for intimate meetings.
Hire the full venue for a no-holds-barred indoor-outdoor wedding reception, or book a single area for a birthday party or corporate dinner. Either way, you’ll enjoy seasonal menus, a full bar service and the chance to party into the early hours due to the generous 1.30am license.
Highlights of Wagtail Rooftop Events:
- Panoramic views over London’s skyline
- Centrally located with the Tube just outside
- Blend of contemporary and vintage décor
- Venue can be hired in full or split for smaller events

Wow, what a hidden gem this place is! Amazing welcome from the offset, and once you exit the lift, you are blown away by the breathtaking view of London. Hands down, the best rooftop bar in London. Attentive service, delicious cocktails and a view you will never tire of. Highly highly recommend!!
New rooftop venue which overlooks London Bridge/Borough from Monument. Really nice space, staff are all really polite. Has a nice vibe to it all around. I had a great time and would recommend.
