There’s nothing like being 48 storeys up to add distinction to the cocktail hour, & London’s highest watering hole – which tops out the Pan Peninsula apartment complex – has wow factor to spare. Open to non-residents from Tuesday to Saturday, it’s a stylish, penthouse-like space with good lighting & just the right ‘inner sanctum’ feel; an impressive sound system ensures it sounds as good as it looks. Cocktails pitch in at around £12 & include classic rusty nails, Champagne cocktails & the modish likes of the apple wharf martini with bison-grass vodka, elderflower & green apple. The wine list ascends from the £24 house offerings to the higher altitudes of Château Léoville-Barton at £240. The bar opens onto balconies with a breathtaking close-up of the Canary Wharf skyline & sweeping vistas which – weather permitting – embrace the London Eye & the Dartford river crossing. Fellow drinkers are a diverse mix of the glammed-up & those who look as though they popped upstairs because there was nothing on TV.
