We came as a couple after being give a Groupon voucher for cocktails a sharing platter for two. The location is excellent with great views from the rooftop. We had a lovely time as the weather was perfect so we were able to enjoy the rooftop. It was nice to see a 'reserved' sign at our seats, a nice little... More

Cocktails that we ordered were delicious as well as looking tantalising! The view is the bars selling point, you can see the whole of Trafalgar Square...brilliant for photos! A... More

Roof top bar with some good views over London. It gets very busy and at least half the seating area does not benefit from the views. Well worth a visit if you can get seated facing Trafalgar Square.

Visited here Saturday 15th August 2015 with my friend as I booked a voucher on Groupon for her 30th birthday and was lovely. Sun was shining so a perfect place to chill and have a few cocktails. The staff were friendly and welcoming. We were taken to the first table and declined the choice as would have been touching elbows... More

We had walked past this roof-top venue many times without being aware of its existence, but found it six or seven storeys up in the Trafalgar Hotel thanks to a Groupon voucher. And an amazing place it is, looking out most immediately over Trafalgar Square and thence many other parts of London; it’s as near as most of us are... More

We went to the Vista using a groupon deal of a sharing platter and a cocktail. The service was good. There was a choice of cocktails, which were nicely presented. Unfortunately the sharing platter for 2 people was very small - olives, 1 mini pitta, 6 small fingers of pizza, 3 small slices of cured meat, 3 slices cured bacon... More

After a long time looking forward to go to the vista @ trafalgar I have to say it was a bit of a disappointment... The terrace that has the view was reserved for a party from 3 pm mid week and the only available seating was on the inner terrace without a view. For 56£ for 4 cocktails in a... More

Lovely sharing platter of tapas with margaritas, followed by gazpacho and pulled pork wrap. Staff very helpful, but unobtrusive. A very pleasant way to spend a Sunday afternoon, watching the world below go by.

Staying in St. James's

Neighborhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
