Overlooking London's skyline, the sleek and sophisticated Skylounge bar and cocktail lounge is located on the 12th floor of the Hilton's Double Tree hotel.
A short lift journey whisks you up to the stylish interior of the Skylounge, which offers an array of seating from high tables and chairs to more comfortable lounge seats, all perfect for those wishing to take in the stunning panoramic view out of the floor to ceiling windows.
Small candles centred on the tables add to the relaxing feel of the bar, which is the perfect place to watch the sun go down while enjoying a glass of champagne with friends or an intimate cocktail after a busy day.
If you choose to step outside, the rooftop terrace offers an even better viewpoint to admire some of The City's most famous landmarks such as Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, City Hall, the newly built Shard, the Gherkin and the dome of St. Paul's Cathedral.
Reservations can be made for the inside tables which may be worthwhile if going later in the evening. A bar menu is available, offering snacks and sharing plates. If you wish to have a more substantial meal before moving on to cocktails in the Skylounge, the Double Tree serves food in its City Café and Lobby Bar.
Easily accessible from Tower Hill, Tower Gateway and Fenchurch Street stations, the cocktail lounge is well worth a visit.
