Went to the roof top bar for the first time. Nice atmosphere and great venue. However won't be going again as greatly disappointed in the attitude of staff. Bar manager rude and arrogant!!! Shame he ruined it for us as it is the type of place I would go to regularly

I regretfully say that this place would have closed long ago if not for its unique location. I decided to treat some of my friends who had flown in for the day for a quick drink up here to take in the views while I showed them a whistlestop tour of London. I have no qualms paying a service charge... More

Had to have a drink here just to see the views and was well worth the visit. You can see lots of London landmarks from here . Very pleasant staff.

To be honest i saw this venue on 'Made in Chelsea' & didn't realise it had such an interesting view, so when Groupon advertised i jumped at the opportunity. Great interesting view, but very disappointed in the 'Italian Antipasti' food platter...very poor indeed & cant say we felt comfortable by the staff either...will i go again....NO...i had taken my daughter...

Tremendous atmosphere. First visit to London from US and it is apparently a English thing to enjoy a Pimms. My drink was fab-beautifully garnished and tasty! View was great and the staff was accommodating! Very pricey but worth the splurge, especially when it's nice outside.

Upon arrival 10 minutes early we were told that it was going to rain and the bar was closing. When I asked for a single drink the reply was probably not. I insisted on at least taking in the view with the other dozen patrons. We were reminded that it was going to rain as we enjoyed the view. We... More

Visited the Vista Bar with a voucher and believe I was given a very sub-standard drink and food platter. Two of us were presented with a cocktail (no choice given). The Italian food platter for two I could replicate for £3, if I were to add the cocktails the value would be £5. Immediately left and went to a restaurant... More

We my husband purchased a groupon voucher to have cocktails and antipasti on the roof top, we made reservations with the hotel and were very excited as this was a treat, we arrive on Friday 8/09/14 at 130 pm and was told bluntly it had been cancelled two weeks prior to arrival, the hostess was very short and blunt and...

The views from Vista are of course fantastic, overlooking Trafalgar Square and the London Eye amongst other attractions. The bar is quite small and compact but the views are great from any seat, particularly the bar style seats which seemed to be mainly reserved. We would have enjoyed our experience an awful lot more if we had not been rushed... More

This bar has everything going for it and should be guaranteed repeat business but somehow manages to not fully deliver. The location is obviously tremendous with one of the best vistas in the UK, possibly the World. The setting for the bar is also equally impressive with a good layout and comfortable furniture. Drinks were very nice indeed and considering... More
