Some of my friends visited from America over Easter Weekend, and it was part of their 'bucket list' to drink cocktails at a rooftop bar. Bar Elba popped up and it was a good choice. The bar is a suitable faux-tropical paradise strung with fairylights (and heaters)! , the iconic murals and a clear cover so it is not totally exposed. The bar offers happy hours and deals for signing up to the newsletter. The selection of cocktails, including their speciality Elban punch, are delicious - and we sampled many. It was the start of a very good.

Really lovely rooftop bar, nice selection of cocktails! Happy hour 241 cocktails 5-7pm daily, definitely worth it. Fantastic little find in Waterloo!

Nice bar with nice cocktails
Toilets are unisex which gave us a fright seeing a man come out the cubicle next to us ha!
I'd avoid wearing stiletto heels or any skinny type of heel, as the floor is like decking and I fell through every single gap whilst walking! Not their fault though...
A lot of stairs to get to the bar too, which is obvious with a roof top...

Says on the website we had booked our table until 2am but then stopped serving at 12 which was annoying.
Nice for a catch up with the girls & a few cocktails - definitely download "Drinki" app, offers 50% off rounds, per person per app!

Just had to say a very special mention to Grant, one of the members of staff, who went out of his way to help us! All other staff were also very friendly and made our visit a great one! Brilliant service - highly recommended. The cocktails are also great, as is happy hour!

This bar would be great in the summer but as we were here New Year’s Eve it was absolutely freezing despite the mini heaters they had everywhere. The porn star martinis are great though and the staff friendly. The burger bar they have in the bar was good too. Would recommend for the summer time as nice location and cocktails.
