dalston roof park

Framed by the city skyline, this rooftop oasis transforms what was once forgotten space into a traditional English Garden brimming with Herbs and Hops to be put to good use in this years food and drink offerings. Nestled amongst Hackneys Victorian buildings and over looking the London city skyscrapers, Dalston’s only rooftop garden is an opportunity to Relax, eat, drink, dance and see the London landscape differently.

We offer a summer long membership for only £5 – sign up below!

Originally inspired by Robert Roof ShotHammond’s new York High Line, the DRP began as a collection of allotments cared for by a group of local volunteer gardeners, with a pop up bar and a program curated by a team of Bootstrap staff and tenants who organized music and film nights they would like to attend themselves.

Since it’s early days the DRP has seen a phenomenal rise in popularity, and it’s astro-turf has been graced by the likes of Rudimental, Jessie Ware, Johnny Flynn, Basement Jaxx and Disclosure; but the same level of care continues to go into our events and gardens. Most importantly we keep it Bootstrap.

Last year the DRP created 6 new London Living Wage jobs on the DRP team, and employed 4 Bootstrap Campus graduates across the summer.IMG_8811

 Our Members Curate nights have given young creatives a chance to showcase their work without having to take a large financial risk, and have helped establish some of the promoters who will return this year.
