Roof Garden

The Roof Garden

Our beautifully landscaped Absolut Roof Garden is unique to the city and is available all year for private events. Espaliered apple trees, box hedging and seasonal planting make this space a charming city oasis. Overlooking both Skipper and Waring Street, The Roof Garden offers wonderful views over the Black Mountain and Cave Hill. The distinctive “profile” of Cave Hill somewhat resembles a sleeping giant and is said to have inspired Jonathan Swift to write “Gulliver’s Travels”. A fully retractable roof allows flexibility to cope with whatever the weather conditions may be. We have also become renowned for our whimsical and wonderful seasonal themes. Drinks and finger food can be provided for parties of up to 70 people.

An enduring appeal of this versatile space is our ongoing inventive theming. Each spring/summer and autumn/winter we transform the Absolut Roof Garden into a new and delightfully seasonally themed space. Features include:

  • State-of-the-art retractable roof
  • Panoramic views of the city
  • Fully stocked private event bar
  • I-Pod compatible sound system
  • Private bathrooms
  • Landscape garden that includes espaliered apple trees and seasonal planting
