There's certainly plenty at which to gawp at this 360-degree City champagne bar - seats are perched at more than 400ft high, at the top of Tower 42. Expect champagnes from most of the big-hitting houses alongside a few classic cocktails, bottles of wine and food ranging from sharing platters and charcuterie boards to smoked salmon, salads and blinis with crème fraîche.

You should go there by night, just for the vew on the city which is outstanding.

Of course, the cocktails are not the cheapest, neither the best you can find in London, but I don't know loads of places offering that view.


Don't forget to book if you want to make sure you can access the bar.

Vertigo 42 Bar is in Tower 42, near Liverpool Street. This bar offers a breathtaking view over London's skyline which shines in the dark night. It's a champagne bar so exepct a wide selection of bubbly drinks on the menu, cocktails are great too! This is a place for a special night!

Not at all what it used to be. Tired and in desperate need of a facelift. What should be an exclusive intimate experience has been ruined by the discount seeking lower end of the market - not at all special

Been here a few times, and it has been approaching stellar (literally) every time. Sure, the majority of this is made up by the view, for which only the architects once employed by NatWest can claim responsibility, but the champagne selection is wonderful, the staff lovely and the non-champagne menu (i.e. snacks, small meals and house wines) provides a nice alternative to help those who inexplicably dislike champagne otherwise enjoy the true glories of this place. Get a reservation. Now. A summer evening there is sublime.
