The Rooftop Bar at No.42 Margate

Classics, new mixes, a bit of both – we’re serious about cocktails up on the roof. We’re also serious about local beers, special wines, the art of the spritz and crafted low and no-alcohol refreshers. And we love the glow that hits us as the sun sets and it's reflection floods the sea. It's when good tunes, good drinks and good company feel like that's all there is in the world.

To use the rooftop bar, just come on in - we don't operate a booking diary for the roof, so it's first come, first served. If it's full, you're welcome to take a seat in the Lounge Bar, Oyster Bar or Pearly Cow terrace - wherever there's space - whilst you wait. And you can still see that fabulous sunset from many spots.

If you fancy having the roof to yourself, you can book it privately - read on below...

Please note no little ones under 12yrs old after 7pm. Open for the summer season 2024 from March 29th.
