Square Meal Review of Vertigo 42 ?

The views over London are as heady as the bubbles at this Champagne bar atop the old NatWest Tower, although the atmosphere can seem flat, and you’ll need to reserve and clear airport-style security before making the ascent. Nevertheless, Vertigo is worth the climb for the all-too-rare opportunity of combining sightseeing with comfort – particularly if you’re entertaining out-of-town visitors. The wine list is long on classy fizz, from Gallimard Brut at £14 a glass to 1990 Krug Clos de Mesnil at a rather more elevated £920 a bottle; alternatively, the gorgeous bellinis (with a twist) are well worth checking out. Food-wise, there’s a tapas-style menu of blinis, olives and sharing platters – or you can pop up for afternoon tea served with suitably dainty ceremony.

    Scoff London :: Vertigo 42, EC2

    Vertigo 42 is located at the top of Tower 42, one of the London’s highest buildings and offers spectacular panoramic views overlooking London’s most famous landmarks. The bar offers a unique collection of Champagnes, wines and cocktails as well as a global tapas style menu. If you don’t know which building Tower 42 is then next time you’re in The City, look up and it’s the one with green lights around the top few floors. I didn’t think any bar or restaurant had views of London to rival Duck & Waffle, so when I heard about Vertigo 42 I had to check it out. The menu at Vertigo 42 is very Champagne led with plenty available by the glass or bottle as well is it being used in most, if not all of the cocktails (wines and spirits are also available). Glasses of Champagne start at £14 with bottles going in to the hundreds. All cocktails are priced at a steep £14. Vertigo 42 is very much a bar, not a restaurant but they do offer a selection of snacks including chicken skewers, pork pies, tiger prawns, bread & olives...
