Sky Pod Bar

Londoners are flocking to this high-rise greenhouse -bar to get a glimpse of the view before more skyline-puncturing protuberances obliterate it. Located on Fenchurch Street, right in the heart of the City, this beautiful venue caused quite a stir when it launched back in 2015. It still remains a draw. Zip up 35 floors of the Walkie Talkie's shapely layers and you'll be transported to a public garden with some truly spectacular views. Sky Garden boasts three storeys of landscaped gardens lush with South African and Mediterranean plants, observation decks, an open-air terrace, two restaurants, a bar and an uninterrupted panorama of the city's skyline. Entry is free, but visitors must book their 90-minute timeslot at least three days in advance on the website.

The cocktails are decent (a Bitter Truth at £11.50 was a pleasant twist on a negroni), many containing champagne. The food is mainly bar snacks (superior cheese boards and the like). Stacked above the bar is the Fenchurch Seafood Bar & Grill and the Darwin Brasserie, where prices rise with the elevation.

Sky Pod looks like a licensed Center Parcs in the sky, but fits in perfectly in the twenty-first-century City.
