Aqua Shard

You’d be unsurprised to discover that cocktails don’t come cheap in this kind of setting. Looking out on the 31st floor of Aqua Shard, you are allowed to feel just a little bit above one’s station with a view to rival the London Eye. Swanky as it is and occasionally finding one to omany business groups it in fact lends itself perfectly to a romantic tête-à-tête.

The cocktails are inspired by two British staples; the botanicals used to make gin and the classic British tea. It all sounds a bit posh to us but you’d be right to expect some special ingredients when hosting this view. We loved the ‘No Money for Butter’ champagne cocktail (pisco, lavender syrup and lemon juice) and the slightly quirkier ‘Grapefruit Gateau’ with Ciroc, grapefruit juice and egg white.

It’s worth the trip alone just for a swanky cocktail or three but we’d go the whole hog and book in for supper (good luck with getting a reservation). The food is excellent.
