Set on the top floors of the Heron Tower, Latin/Japanese hybrid Sushisamba offers staggering views of Lilliputian London below – complete with a splash of Las Vegas glitz. Live the high life at its alfresco bar, shelter under a fantastical metal tree or wrap yourself in a fleece blanket and huddle round a fire pit on chilly nights. Summer coolers include kaffirinha and chu-cumber (a shochu and Hendrick’s gin conceit), while Peru (via Honshu) is represented by Pablo Piscobar – pisco, yuzu and ginger bitters on the rocks. Not all drinks are as successful; an old fashioned made with rum, star anise, Bénédictine and tonka beans is one experiment that flops. Classy small plates include miso soup, tempura, Wagyu gyoza, sashimi, sushi and ceviche – if only some of the more boastful City boys out on the lash were as sophisticated.
