LIFESTYLE | Rooftop Film Club with Nespresso

I've always been a huge fan of quirky cinema experiences and there's a special place in my heart for rooftop film showings, especially with Rooftop Film Club and Nespresso.

I love how individual and quirky each showing is, how affordable it is (usually a lot cheaper then going to a normal cinema) and just the general vibe of it all. It's so lovely to grab a drink and kick back and relax on a London rooftop during those late summer evenings that seem to stretch on forever.

When myself and some friends were invited down to try out some of the Nespresso Martini's at one of Rooptop Film Club's showings, we of course jumped at the chance.

Rooftop Film Club operates over various cool and quirky locations in London, New York and LA, and a number of the events serve yummy Nespresso Martinti's on the night, also.

We chose to visit Roof East in Stratford and as soon as we stepped out onto the rooftop, we were blown away. The whole rooftop had a laid back and offbeat summer vibe to it, with greenery and moss growing out of convertible cars, fairy lights dotted throughout and lots of deckchairs to settle down in - and this was just the bar area!

There was also Birdies Crazy Golf (which I've wanted to try for a while now) and that led onto a pretty hilarious game of crazy golf where, despite my terrible smack talk about how good I am at crazy golf, I lost entirely.

Food on hand came from another favourite of mine, RockaDollar hot dogs, which were bloody delicious, and tasty cocktails served from the talented mixologists who were almost hypnotising to watch as they spun, threw and caught bottles between them whilst serving up drinks.

We enjoyed relaxing into the deckchairs with chilled music pumping out of the speakers and friendly chatter taking place around us whilst we caught up on what we had been up to since we last saw each other and sipped at the yummy cocktails.

It was such a nice vibe and the ideal way to spend a lazy late Saturday afternoon in London - and did I mention how amazing the view were?!

We got to try the Nespresso Martini's during our visit, too, and despite being a warm summers day, they went down a treat. They were full of flavour and, oddly enough, were the perfect drinks to sip as the sun slowly went down. Despite being Martini's, they helped the transition from day into night, when fruity cocktails usually tend to turn into something a little more warm, or at least less strong once the sun goes down.

After this, it was time for the movie to start so we headed through to where it was showing on the opposite end of the roof, settled down into more comfortable deckchairs and prepared ourselves for the emotional experience of watching The Notebook.

It turns out Sophie hadn't seen it before, so we all had a giggle when of course it all made us shed a tear or two by the end.

Afterwards, we touched up our makeup and headed into the Nespresso photo booth to take some photos. Having a photo booth was such a nice touch and it was lovely that we could walk away with some print outs from our photos and to remind us of the lovely night.

If you've got an evening free anytime between now and the end of this summer, I would entirely recommend a visit to Rooftop Film Club, especially their Roof East in Stratford venue. We had a lovely girly evening which we won't forget in a hurry, but I think it would be ideal for dates, too.

And if you head down early and plan to stay there a while, grab yourself a couple of drinks and when it comes time to the movie, I can tell you from personal experience that a Nespresso Cocktail really hits the spot.

I would of course like to thank Rooftop Film Club for such a lovely evening which we can't wait to recreate with another visit soon.

My friends had never experienced Rooftop Film Club before so they were especially excited to be introduced to something new.
