Drinks with a view. This champagne bar is situated on the forty-second floor of Tower 42 (formerly NatWest Tower), and affords views of the City and beyond. And what views they are – you’ll be repeatedly amazed every time you take a casual glance through the window and realise for the hundredth time just how high you really are. The mirrored wall in the centre of the bar just adds to the amount of sky you can see all around you, and as night falls you’re treated to a fantastic show as the city begins to light up in the darkness. Being a Champagne bar, and considering the view, it’d be a shame not to open a bottle. They start at £59.50 and range up to £820 with cocktails and wine available, as well as platters of elegant bar food.
Bear in mind, you must book a table in order to enter, as well as pass an airport-style security check. Dress code is smart-casual.
