Background Bars

Following last year’s successful summer residency, Cellar Door mandem Background Bars are all set to return to Dalston Roof Park next month. The imaginative pop-up bar and events company will draw on the venue’s edible garden using its home grown fruit, vegetables and herbs to mix cocktails with a variety of teas such as Oolong, green tea, Earl Grey and English breakfast. They will also be introducing and showing their support to local breweries and cold-pressed cider merchants.

There will also be free weekly film screenings on Tuesdays, unplugged sessions and deep house DJs.

Situated in the heart of Dalston, Dalston Roof Park is an urban oasis overlooking Hackney’s Victorian buildings, London city’s skyscrapers and all the hustle and bustle of the streets down below. The venue is home to Dalston’s first community roof allotment. It brims with flowers, fruits and vegetables around the periphery and is fully solar powered. The bar also has an inflatable roof which keeps the crowd sheltered if it rains… it is British summertime after all!
