Enjoy an outdoor bar with street food throughout the summer

Looking for the perfect after work drinks spot this summer? We’ve got you covered. Every Thursday in June and July, from 5:30pm – 8pm the Floating Pocket Park will transform into The Floating Bar, the ideal spot for outdoor drinks and relaxation.

The unique setting, designed by renowned artists, provides a truly stunning backdrop for enjoying your favourite drinks with your friends and colleagues. The Floating Bar will be managed by our neighbours at Lockhouse, providing a range of drinks to suit all tastes from classic cocktails, to refreshing beers, wines and soft drinks. Sipping on your favourite drink and watching the sun shimmering on the canal will make you feel far from the hustle and bustle of central London.
