Up on the 40th floor of The Heron Tower is the highest 24 restaurant in the UK and a banging bar that has it all: sky-high killer views, possibly the most iconic brunch dish in town (duck, waffle and poached eggs – genius) and killer cocktails to wash it all down with. Did we mention you can get all of this at any hour of the day?
Going up in that glass lift is an experience in itself - and an excuse to grab onto your hot date - and sitting by those floor to ceiling glass windows can feel a bit like you’re flying (especially after a few drinks) but as soon as you can feel your legs again prepare to be blown away by the view. We’re here for the drinks so luckily the bar, with its graffiti-glam vibe, is just as badass as the restaurant.
There’s a bit of a party crowd here, but they’re pretty harsh on the door so play nice and you should be golden. You can come up any time, we mean ANY time, baby. Fancy Bloody Marys and bar snacks at 3am? You got it. With Rich Woods aka. The Cocktail Guy at the helm they’re always ahead of the game on the booze front so expect themed cocktails (remember their infamous Nutella Negroni?), seasonal specials and bizarre yet brilliant twists on classics. If you’re lucky enough to catch Rich he’ll blow your mind with stories of the cocktail in front of you and how he handcrafted/distilled/blended/infused it with his own tears (probably). Bars don’t get much better than this so get high and soak it up.
