“Lovely views over the city.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013

A little gem on the top floor of the London Mint Hotel - Perfect for a drink after work or relaxing. Not cheap but you're paying for the view/experience as well.

Gorgeous views over the city and a great outdoor terrace - friendly and welcoming staff with a courteous and efficient attitude - Recommended.

“Great views and delicious cocktails”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

Very nice experience to relax after a busy day - open roof top terrace has incredible views over the Ctiy, Tower Bridge, Tower of London and the Shard. I would advise to go there at night, although Thursday night it was quite crowded, the views do compensate for that. Delicious original cocktails (a big choice of them, about 12-15 pounds each).

“Wow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

What a view! Really stunning, probably the best hotel view in the City of London (and it isn't a Mint hotel any more)
