Housed in the glass dome of 20 Fenchurch Street the Sky Garden has been making waves since its opening in January 2015. The danger of over-hype is that critics tend to pan it off the bat. But we love the combination of views with the lush greenery of the landscaped gardens throughout.
With 360 degree views across the City of London this is one to impress your date. Choose from Darwin Brasserie or Fenchurch Street Bar and Grill finishing with a reliably good cocktail at the Sky Pod Bar (open until 2am). The best place to sit is at the Darwin with a classically British menu serving up pork belly, venison and plaice with a sophisticated twist. If you have a table a place at the bar is guaranteed.
It might be hard to get the reservation but do persevere. This is the equivalent of finding Ramsay at the top of the London Eye.
