Time Out Says…
The cocktails are decent (a Bitter Truth at £11.50 was a pleasant twist on a negroni), many containing champagne. The food is mainly bar snacks (superior cheese boards and the like). Stacked above the bar is the Fenchurch Seafood Bar & Grill and the Darwin Brasserie, where prices rise with the elevation. Sky Pod looks like a licensed Center Parcs in the sky, but fits in perfectly in the twenty-first-century City. And it’s the only place in the area you can’t see the Walkie Talkie, so that’s something.Read more…
Square Meal Says…
The view is an awe-inspiring widescreen but the bar itself is dwarfed and lacks intimacy due to the amount of surrounding empty space. Signature cocktails include a tangy Fresh Mary, combining gin with notes of cherry tomato and basil (£11.50), alongside reasonably priced classics, a range of wines and spirits, and sharing platters for snacking. As part of its green credentials, the space has no climate control and on our visit the staff wore woolly hats and coats. No evening reservations make Sky Pod great for heady stargazing, just remember to dress for the temperature.Read more…
Sky Garden is London’s highest park, set over three storeys it’s home to incredible gardens and open air spaces; you’ll find BarChick hidden amongst palm trees and stars at the Sky Pod bar. If you’re looking for the ultimate date night look no further. The cocktails are well-made classics and signatures that wash the view down nicely. Why tear yourself from the panoramic when you can stay for dinner? Fenchurch restaurant serves up delicious seafood while Darwin Brasserie is home to the best of British produce like oysters and lamb rump, and the bar is rum heavy and not afraid to use it.Read more…
