Don't miss this place - winter or summer Skylounge has one of the best views of London. Very friendly staff, you won't feel odd even as a solo visitor here. Excellent value lunch menu too - 4 people (booze-free) less than £80. Ibiza-esque outside terrace is very popular chill zone too. On my regular list.

A light lunch with a view of iconic London certainly impressed overseas visitors - we were promoted to a Thames-side table. This venue may become busy later in the day, but at lunch it was calm and specious. Will visit again!

Stunning views but the drinks are expensive £38 including service for four glasses of wine. The service is very good, but it should be with those prices.

This is a great bar with awesome views of the city. It has also has an outside terrace with plenty of seating. They offer a comprehensive list of cocktails (expensive) but good! The lounge had a great vibe to it, playing some excellent music creating an excellent atmosphere.

Service was pretty good, considering it was so darn busy! This is a must do when I'm downtown area, night views are lovely. Food was a 6-7 out of 10, but then venue is great. Make reservations for sure!

Staying in City of London

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
