Visit London’s waterside venues for spectacular views, incredible drinks and the chance to check out a super yacht or two.
Take your evening antics water-side and enjoy a view of the River Thames with your favourite tipple. Whether you fancy unique cocktails, a view of the capital’s skyline or just post-work drinks, head for the docks!
The Attic at Pan Peninsula, Docklands
Jaw-dropping views? Check. Gorgeous venue? Check. Incredible drinks? Double-check. The Attic is a luxury champagne and cocktail bar on the 48th floor of the Pan Peninsula hotel in London’s Docklands, and is the kind of place that you should take someone you really want to impress. During the day, it’s a quiet retreat for casual meetings. The stunning decor is complemented by 360-degree panoramic views of Canary Wharf, making it the perfect place to spend an entire night.
Xi Bar & Lounge, St Katharine Docks
This hidden gem can be found tucked away at The Tower Hotel and is an ideal drinking den if you’re heading to the O2 or the Excel Centre for an event. With a gorgeous backdrop of the River Thames and Tower Bridge, indulge with one of the special Xi Martinis – try the ginger version if you fancy something a bit different – or tuck into tapas, salads and cold nibbles from the extensive bar menu.
One Canada Square Bar and Restaurant, Canary Wharf
The owners of One Canada Square are the same people behind Sloane Square venue, The Botanist, so you know that you won’t be disappointed. Located in the lobby of No 1 Canada Square, it’s a great place to drop in for a glass of wine after work – their long wine list provides plenty of options. On Friday nights, a limited selection of cocktails are available for only £6, while Saturday visitors should opt for the infamous Bottomless brunch; £40 for three courses including unlimited Prosecco and wine!
The Harbour Bar & Terrace, Chelsea Harbour
If you’re going to be dropping anchor in Chelsea Harbour, you should probably make a reservation at The Harbour Bar. During the daytime it’s a great spot for afternoon tea, but by night, it’s much more intimate and cosy. Pop champagne with a mate or date in plush, candlelit surroundings and make the most of the stunning views overlooking the marina.
