Roller Disco

It’s time to dust off your leg warmers, whip out the Lycra and head down to Vauxhall for a night of retro fun at Roller Disco. Fridays and Saturdays are filled with pure 70’s funk as you party your shins off into the early hours. The Renaissance rooms offers a vast space for you to show off your skating skills or your spectacular falls depending on your prowess and upstairs is where you find the more intimate mezzanine bar which can be hired out for private parties.  There are four well stocked bars but drinks are pricey-  something that may work out in your favour if it dissuades you from trying the backward spin at 1 am after a few shots. Open from 8 pm-2 am there is plenty of time to skate, drink the night away. This is a perfect option for a birthday, hen night or simply a great excuse to get your mates together and have a laugh. You don’t get more retro than Roller Disco.
