Skylight Rooftop Bar is opening its doors to four-legged friends and their human counterparts alike on Sunday 27th September, as the infamous Dog Day returns. Skylight is collaborating with UK charity Dogs On The Streets (DOTS), which support rough sleepers and their canine companions, to host this dog-centric drinking session.
Situated at Tobacco Dock, with panoramic views of London’s skyline and a bright and colourful décor, Skylight is well known for its upbeat open-air atmosphere; boasting a playful mix of boozy games and sunsets. The usual rooftop lawn games have been temporarily switched out for safe and socially distanced tables, which also provides ample space for any furry friends. Social-distancing measures including a one way system, increased cleaning, and a contactless payment system have been introduced to keep Londoners safe.
Cocktails on offer have been specifically tailored for Dog Day, and include the Frenchie 75 and Pugtail, and will be on offer 2-4-1 from 12pm – 4pm. Free entry with table bookings required.
Dogs are in for an equal treat, with luxury pet brands providing complimentary dog snacks from Frozzys (a frozen yoghurt for dogs), Forthglade, Norsh and Lecker Bites.
A photo competition will also be taking place with prizes to be won as dogs, like owners, are no doubt desperate for the perfect rooftop snap.
The DOTS team will also be present at the event, with money raised for the charity through donations from the themed cocktails as well as donation pots throughout the venue.
Dogs on the Streets is multi award winning and the UK’s main charity that supports rough sleepers and the homeless community with dogs. Run by volunteers, the DOTS team comprises Vets, Vet Nurses, Dog Trainers, Groomers and Nutritionists. Offering food and dietary advice as well as providing vital accessories like coats, bedding, collars and leads, DOTS also helps their owners. DOTS aims to find permanent accommodation for rough sleepers and regularly represents clients and their dogs with services/borough councils, as well as helping to create pathways to rehabilitation which often can only be achieved with their dogs by their side.
