Skylounge Begin your evening with a drink on the outdoor terrace of this stylish city cocktail lounge, which has been specifically designed to offer spectacular views. From the South Terrace, gaze over Tower Bridge, The Shard, the historic Tower of London and the River Thames. Marvel at the Gherkin and St Paul's Cathedral from the newly opened Rum Shack. Choose from an eclectic menu of imaginative cocktails or select from the wide range of whiskies, fine wines and bottled beers. At Rum Shack, why not grab a Mojito jug for your party or try a jug of High and Stormy to get the night going, Caribbean style!

Nice rooftop cocktails with decent apps

This place had a great inside space and outside space to have drinks and a few nibbles. It has a great view of the city and river and the flat bread combo I got was nice to tie things over.

nice view, good cocktails, overpriced though as all Skylounge. After one-two times, I would find another cocktail bar in the neighborhood, at some point you get bored of the view.

I have been to many afternoon teas in London, and the Skylounge was one of the worst I have been too, you hardly get anything and the service also is very poor. For the same price you can get better afternoon teas in London. I would not recommend this place for afternoon tea to anyone, you will be highly disappointed!!!... More

Superb bar with iconic views of tower bridge and trinity square. Very limited food menu and a surprise charge for service which at tables was poor. I recommend a visit but use this venue for drinks and socialising don't waste your money on poor value food. Atmosphere and views = 5, food =2 so I've gone with 3 for balance.... More

I think this place is a hidden gem, it has a very modern feel & 360 degree view of London City. The bar has floor to ceiling windows the whole way round & a lovely outside terrace area which would be a great place to enjoy a cocktail in the summer - we will be back! We were staying at... More

Cocktails lovely. Bar staff very good. Great recommendations for cocktails based on what customers like. Trendy, dimly lit atmosphere. Great place to unwind and relax in good company.

Came to Hilton Double Tree for the lure of the Valhalla Cocktail Bar and wasn't disappointed! It was a great venue and wonderful for a winter's evening - the lights shining out across London set the scene and there was a real buzz in the atmosphere. For anyone wanting Saturday night drinks this is the place! The Valhalla Cocktail Bar... More

This bar is located at the doubletree hotel. It has a great view toward the London Bridge, the crowd is basically businessmen of the insurance business. I would definitely would go back on the summer since it has a nice terrace.
