If I’m being totally honest it took us almost a week to book our slot, not because we couldn’t find time or we were a little on the disorganised side… We were truly trying to reason with the idea of a bottomless Prosecco and cocktail brunch; ie a boozy work day lunch followed by almost sober but extremely subjective strolls through museums and Art galleries.
“So should we do Bottoms Up or the Social Package ?”
” I don’t know, what do you want to do?”
Nobody wants to be the first to admit to gagging for a bucket of sparkling wine after a hard week of work, nobody wants to come to terms with the existential crisis that is adulting! The following week we agreed, interestingly enough the deposit hadn’t already been secured…
The intention was discreet the issue resolved, a worthy solution found.
Elba bar is a discreet roof pub / bar with a neat selection of cocktails and grub, outdoor cinema and a reasonably fair London city view. Depending on the guest’s appetite there are a few special packages available. You could either go for the Drinks Table at £10PP , Bottoms Up at £20PP offering 3 x Bottles of house beer or 2 x Porn Star or Espresso Martinis or the Social Package at £35-39PP serving 1 Hour of unlimited Beer, Prosecco, Porn Star Martinis & Espresso Martinis.

Wisdom is key in a situation like this, you’ve just climbed a thousand pop art styled concrete steps, you’ve committed yourself to intoxication on a supposed to be sunny but definitely overcast humid afternoon on a rooftop…
