Follow The Yellow Brick Road To This Emerald City Themed Rooftop Bar

Dig out your ruby slippers and fly your broomstick to east London, where a new Emerald City themed rooftop bar opens this autumn.

Follow the yellow brick road from the ground floor of Queen of Hoxton up to the lively bar's rooftop, which is having a makeover inspired by the Wizard of Oz and musical spin-off, Wicked.

Witches are a central theme of the pop-up, which consists of a bewitching rooftop wigwam, and a jewel-encrusted emerald garden, complete with fire pit for toasting marshmallows on those chilly winter nights.

Food is served Kansas-style — think hearty beef pot roast, or Munchkin pumpkin pot roast for vegetarians — washed down with the likes of Bad *itch Hot Chocolate (spiked with cognac or orange liquer), hot buttered rum, mulled wine, or an emerald bellini.

Join the inner circle of the coven through a series of events taking place up on the roof, including Emerald Isle storytelling (yep, we're hopping from Oz to Ireland), an incense-making workshop, and a rooftop silent disco.

Emerald City at Queen of Hoxton launches 24 October 2019, and is open until spring 2020 (barring tornados). Entry is free, except for special events — check website for details.
