This places is lovely. I have been on several occasions. Once on a sunny Saturday afternoon where I found it wasn't that busy and we sat in the sunshine and had a lovely lunch with some fruity ciders. The second was on a week night evening. Again, the sun was shining which highlights the spectacular views. The cocktails are all... More

So here we go... Positives; great view, cool music, clean and beautiful in the sunshine. Rude staff, inordinately expensive, the initial walk through the hotel you feel unwanted. I nearly took a client here, phew, lucky I didn't, stick with Maddison's

The Sky Lounge atop the Doubletree Tower of London Hotel offers a nice respite from your day's travels in London. Unfortinately, this hotel and the Sky Lounge is now subject to the vagaries of booming construction in London. What once may have been a great view is now marred by the City Bird of London - The One Legged Construction... More

Congratulations to the Skylounge for generating TWO firsts for me in my 49 years. 1) refusing to pay a service charge (I'm the kind of person that when asked if everything's ok, says yes regardless) and 2) I have NEVER felt compelled to write an online review, until now. So here goes. Took my daughter for a "quick bite" for... More

Went to Skylounge at Tower Bridge for drinks on a Friday last week. It was good weather so the terrace was a good place to wander to. There is a Tequila Bar there too, but I would say stick to the Tequila menu and don't let the bar staff talk you into their pre made slush puppy type cocktails... Good... More

Great place to have breakfast with panoramic London views. Staff are friendly and helpful, get there early for breakfast as it's a popular venue.

Sorry Skylounge you have lost the sparkle for us! We didnt find the place as welcoming as last year, we found the service at the bar really slow, think this would of been different if we were wearing a suit! Just remember there are normal paying guests at the hotel who would like to sit outside and soak up the... More

Rooftop resturant with the tower of London for backdrop and the Shard with fine alcohol and brilliantly crafted food. Toss in some good looking faces stylishly dressed and you have a perfect evening on a platter literally ! Must do if looking for a classy night out..which could turn into a mental one as the energies pick up !

Great rooftop bar in the old part of London. Spectaular views of the Thames River and the historic Tower of London. Check it out.
