This East London Rooftop Is Transforming Into A Beautiful Moroccan Medina For The Winter

share on:

After their successful summer as a Peter Pan-themed pop-up, Queen of Hoxton are returning for the winter with a cosy, Moroccan-inspired rooftop bar.

The Queen of Hoxton’s wigwam will soon be back and this time it’ll be disguised as a giant Moroccan Medina adorned with beautiful fabrics and twinkly lights. Get cosy and enjoy a Spiced Hot Buttered Rum or a Shimmering Gold Pomegranate Bellini as you relax amongst patterned cushions, rugs and throws.

Outside the garden will transport you straight to the stunning Jardin Majorelle in Marrakesh (also known as the Yves Saint Laurent Garden), with its cobalt blue walls, cacti, Chiminea fireplaces and canopies of fairy lights.

The food will also stick to the Moroccan theme, with highlights including lamb and apricot tagine, rainbow vegan mezze boards and halloumi fries. And, in true QOH style, we can also expect a bunch of unique events throughout the season. This winter they’re teaming up with Arts Canteen, a London-based collective looking to create artistic links between Europe and the Middle East and independent publisher, Saqi Books, which specialises in books from North Africa.

The Moroccan Medina will open to the public on October 26th at Queen of Hoxton, 1-5 Curtain Road, Shoreditch, near Liverpool Street/Old Street stations, EC2A 3JX.
