I have visited this bar 3 times and with each visit it gets a little less enjoyable. These days it seems to be completely full of poncy suits and women who are wearing skyscraper heels and skirts that just about cover their backsides. It is never easy to get a seat, not clear if it is table service or go... More

Great place, authentic, amazing views. Drinks reasonable, food pricey and not that great. Ideal for after work or evening place to meet friends to look at the views with a frozen margarita.

well, that's the impression the staff clearly have. It is a nice venue, it has comfortable seating, it has a great view, the cocktails are deliciously well made. But you are paying for it and the staff seem to ahve the idea that you are privileged to come here. It takes more than a nice view tomake me want to... More

The views from the SkyLounge are great! The drinks are a little pricey but to be expected really. I came with a group of friends and we opened a tab. When we wanted to pay, the bill was about double what it should be! We queried it and it eventually got resolved, and also got a round of shots as... More

I have stayed at DT Tower Bridge a few times, but only yesterday I have discvovered this place. The panoramic view is absolutely amazing and cocktails are just amazing, a bit on the pricy side but well worth it. Will come here again. Love it

grab a beer, a ginger beer, a coke....enjoy the view and the food. Located on the 12th floor - you have a view of some amazing skylines of london.

If you want to get properly fleeced in the City of London, go here, if you want better value go elsewhere. You are seriously only paying for the view here, you can get the same drinks downstairs in the same hotel for much much less. Tends to attract a crowd that may not be to everyone's taste too.

Lovely view but a popular local place so not much room for a hotel guest! Some of the staff are lovely but others were very rude and service was abrupt. Bit of a disappointment

I opted to have supper in the Sky Lounge, which was a brilliant venue in the hot summer weather. The staff were hard-working and friendly and the hamburger was very good. My only suggestion for the Sky Lounge is that the music is far too loud. You can create ambience without drowning out conversation. A lot of bars and cafés... More

Came to the skylounge on my 21st birthday just for a drink with family. Apart from one or two tables of 3, we were the only people drinking so atmosphere wasn't all that. Service was quite slow considering how empty it was. But the views you get are great and the cocktails were lovely. Prices are quite reasonable for London... More
