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

Don't get me wrong this place is cool, awesome views, good atmosphere, nice (expensive) drinks, but the service from one barman had me fuming. We arrived at the bar around 10:45 and stood near to the end of the bar. It was quite busy, not full but busy enough. This one barman was cleaning an area directly in front of... More

Excellent lounge and when the weather is fine you can stand out on the balcony and there is a terrace too. Amazing view of great iconic landmarks. The drinks menu is great. Buzzing place on a Friday night too. Well worth going even if you aren't a hotel resident.
