Oblix at the Shard

BARCHICK SAYS

Enter the building and you will be shown to a lift, the service starts here as you don't even need to hit a button, just enjoy the leather panels around you or sneak in a snog. On arrival you'll be greeted by some mega babes and their iPads. Just look good, smile and hopefully they'll let you in. If not, try booking.

It's a right for the restaurant and a left to the lounge (aka the big ass bar). Head through the dark corridor, get ready for the view (it's epic, even if you are only half way up) - like porn for trainspotters too. As is the big bar with pretty bottles displayed to the ceiling. There are leather clad barmen, golden shakers, blocks of ice which they saw and hack up to order, sexy.

The drinks are mega, as is their collection of spirits (n.b. the rums and ryes). They keep the cocktails simple but the flavours bold, work your way through them. We loved the Pineapple with mescal, agave and cardamon, and the Pistachio with Don Juilo Blanco Tequila, lime and agave. If wine's your thing, their sommelier Alessandro has a great list which all available by the glass.

Soak up the cocktails and views with some incredible food; burrata, soft shell crab and lobster and salmon ceviche is all incredible.
