Despite reviews criticisms regarding the expense of the cocktails, I found them to be good value. There are good views of the Shard, Gherkin and Tower Bridge.... and weirdly someone's bath tub that faces one of the smoking areas. The access is via the Hilton Lobby. I'd rather pay £12+ per (very strong) cocktail than £8 for a ropey one.... More

You have to go here for the view. It is simply breathtaking. The cocktails and deserts are fine. The food is quite simple, but you don't mind at all because you are on top of the world with the best view ever! Wait for the sun to set.

We were residents in the hotel and decided to visit for a drink. It was very busy even early on a Saturday evening. Outdoor terrace was open with heaters if you fancied sitting outside. Views of Tower Bridge and surroundings were brilliant.

Description
Skylounge
Begin your evening with a drink on the outdoor terrace of this stylish city cocktail lounge, which has been specifically designed to offer spectacular views. From the South Terrace, gaze over Tower Bridge, The Shard, the historic Tower of London and the River Thames. Marvel at the Gherkin and St Paul's Cathedral from the newly opened Rum Shack. Choose from an eclectic menu of imaginative cocktails or select from the wide range of whiskies, fine wines and bottled beers. At Rum Shack, why not grab a Mojito jug for your party or try a jug of High and Stormy to get the night going, Caribbean style!

Staying in City of London

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
