Squaremeal Review of Aqua Shard (bar) ?

At the risk of upsetting the neighbours, if you only do one bar at The Shard, make it Aqua. For panoramic views, this high-level atrium lounge – three storeys high – beats the bar at Oblix. It’s slicker and sexier than Gong and is a hotter date than Hutong, above. The interior is decked out like a Manhattan-style loft; if you can discern the menu in the gloaming, try one of the gin- or tea-inspired cocktails. Start pleasantly with Devonshire Cream Cup (gin, Aperol, crème de fraise, lemon curd, tarragon balsamic vinegar and lemon juice, topped with Earl Grey ‘air’) before descending into wickedness with the Four Stages of Cruelty (Tanqueray 10 gin, Sauvignon Blanc, elderflower and Curious Brew beer). The bar is open throughout the day, so you can choose how to take your vista: with bright sunshine or with a myriad twinkling night-time lights.

Impressive!! Felt like a princess all night! I love to party and this place had all the right features for my 30th birthday- great drinks, great music, great staff! You can't reserve an area in the bar but there was only 4 of us so we were fine!

My Birthday near disaster at the AquaShard,a long review but worth reading

After a visit to the View at the Shard,I had booked a table at the AquaShard restaurant to celebrate my birthday with my partner.First of all we had cocktails at the bar after confirming our booking. We were served by a nice cocktail waitress who advised us on our cocktail selection,once we had decided on our cocktails we had a long wait for them.Which meant taking them to our table as our booking time for the table was due. We had the table I had asked for when booking,by the window on the East...
