Well hello there…
As we truly witness the transition from Summer to Autumn in London this week, we thought it perfect timing to share with you the best bars in the capital with jaw-dropping views, so you can really take in the sunset before it gets too cold and you’re outside freezing your little tootsies off! Brrrrrr.
With help from our best buds, Zomato and its Cityscapes Collection, GetTaxi has handpicked the best of the best places to visit with panoramic views, scrumptious grub and killer cocktails for you to sink your teeth into.
Don’t forget, you can check out Zomato whenever you’re looking for a place to eat or drink nearby, and even if you’re abroad. Now that is worldly!
With epic views of Tower Bridge and the River Thames that don’t break the bank, head to Dim T, London Bridge for an oriental feast fit for a king. You’ll be spoilt for choice with Chinese, Japanese and Thai on the menu and pleasantly surprised at the reasonable prices within an upscale setting. We’d recommend booking ahead if you want to secure the best seats in the house, next to the floor to ceiling windows.
Duck & Waffle
No, we don’t mean bend down and start babbling away – we’re talking about the restaurant that serves breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Sitting right at the top, on the 40th floor of the Heron Tower, even the glass lift that shoots you up is an experience in itself. The views, outstanding. The cocktails, interesting. Bookings are strongly advised and you’ll spend slightly more than your average brunch but boy oh boy is it worth it. GetTaxi’s recommendation – try the duck and waffle, of course.
If city views aren’t your thing and you’re looking for more rural surroundings, then The Summerhouse is the restaurant for you. Nestled in the heart of Little Italy, this petite lil’ eatery is bustling on a weekend so it’s best to book in advance, as the place fills up fast. With menus that are updated seasonally, there’s a wide range of rustic dishes to choose from and you can look forward to unpretentious food at modest prices. The scenic views over the canal are what make this hot spot insanely popular plus, you can walk off your meal along the water before you hop in a GetTaxi. Wahey!
