The views from this Bond-villain eyrie on the 28th floor of the Hilton London may take your breath away, but so will the price of a beer – £10 (plus 12.5 per cent service) for Weihenstephaner? Well, there is a recent £500K pewter-tone refurb to pay for. You will arguably get better value from a bottle of Pommery (£55) or one of the high-rise sips such as winter leaf (Maker's Mark bourbon, chestnut liqueur, pear purée, lime juice and elderflower liqueur). The bar is open throughout the day for coffee, afternoon tea, wine and anything from Scotch eggs and mackerel brandade to burgers and Eton mess, although sundown is the best time for atmospheric, highly charged views over the city. Prepare to queue at peak times with a cast of romantic Londoners and snap-happy tourists.
