Bar Elba The first of its kind in the area, Bar Elba is a brand new rooftop cocktail bar in Waterloo. Presented by The Adventure Bar Group - the team behind the Adventure Bars in Covent Garden, Clapham Junction and Clapham High Street, The Escapologist in Seven Dials and the newly opened Tonight Josephine, located just below in the basement - the bar offers views across the city and Waterloo and takes inspiration from the Battle of Waterloo. Visitors can expect a desert-island feel based on the Mediterranean island of Elba that Napoleon was exiled to for 300 days. Sip on classic cocktails such as Aperol Spritz and Love Potion No.10 as well as a Frose (frozen Rose). There will also be sharing jugs, a 2-4-1 cocktail happy hour and burgers courtesy of Dip & Flip.
