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.

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. I think because the bar is on the 12th floor or the Hilton Double Tree it's sometimes over looked as somewhere to... More

A really nice bar on the 12th floor of the hotel. Amazing views of Tower Bridge, The Shard and Gherkin, It is quite expensive, but ok if you only want one drink. The bar staff were a bit abrupt though. Worth a visit just for the views.

Relaxing atmosphere, but a little cold during the winter months. Also one night there was an unpleasant odor by the restrooms.

Only went for a drink (that's all we could afford -- two drinks were 30 Euros!), but the view was amazing.

I have been there many times and I have never regretted it. The staff are very helpful, there is a very good selection of drinks and great views of London. For us a great way of reminding ourselves how beautiful our city is and for visitors a picture perfect surprise.

I went here for pre-dinner drinks on my birthday with friends. When we first got there around 7.30pm (on a Saturday) I was slightly worried as there weren't any free tables and that would have resulted in 12 of us just standing around, not really sure what to do with ourselves! However, we were extremely lucky and two people left... More

I have been there tonight with my boyfriend and it has been a great night in London! The staff was lovely, specially our waitress Barbara. My boyfriend had a gingerbread old fashioned and I had a winter cosmopolitan, both really good! The only thing I didn't like was that in the outside area they have set up a winter terrace... More
