Nathan Howard. I'm a second year student living in London. I like to share my experiences with other's to inform them on London and what it has to offer!

An evening of class without the classy prices
Celebratory drinks, a much-needed catch-up with friends or looking for somewhere special for that extra-special date? Whatever the reason, this venue boasts more than just a great view.
Sky Pod Bar is a rooftop all-day drinking and dining space located on the 35th floor located just off Fenchurch St, City of London. A cafe during the day and cocktail bar by night, guests are welcome to drink to their heart's content until as late as 1am on a Saturday night. You won't be expected to dig out your tux for this bar, but smart wear is encouraged - but who doesn't enjoy dressing to impress!
What's my favourite thing about this bar is its prices! A pint of beer can be as little as £5.50 and for those feeling more exotic, a signature cocktail will set you back just £12.50. What's more, entry is free, so there's no unexpected charge at the door. Be careful though, with these prices an Uber home may be necessary after a few too many!
With its city skyline views guaranteed to take your breath away, there's no wonder guests are advised to book weeks in advance to secure a booking at this bar. However, walk-in guests are invited during certain hours of each day, so please see the website.
Walk up some steps just from the bar and you'll be submerged in an abundance of plants and tree varieties at the Sky Garden. This unique space brings the outdoors in, offering the same fantastic service that the Sky Pod Bar does. Tickets here are also free and can be visited in the daytime all through until night. Daytime visits here are popular with families when kids can be kids and explore the view for what it is, while parents can mingle over a sip of coffee and some cake.
Whatever the reason or whoever you are, this place is a must-see! So pay a visit at The Sky Bar and Garden to see what this beautiful city really has to offer!
