About Skylon (bar)

SquareMeal Review

Bronze Award
Sandwiched between the animated Grill and the more subdued restaurant, Skylon’s bar is a destination in its own right for those seeking serious liquid refreshment. Bag one of the 50s-style armchairs for a seat overlooking the river, and take in the Waterloo sunset as you sip a Skylon (muddled grapes and ginger, Cîroc vodka, green apple liqueur, fresh lime and apple juice) or one of 10 different Bellinis (the elderflower and peach version comes highly recommended). Upmarket bar food includes scaled-down versions of some of the restaurant dishes, including salmon rillettes with pickled cucumber, crispy duck rolls or scallops with black pudding. None of this comes cheap, but as a starting point for a date or a bit of business, it’s up there with London’s best.

The noise in the restaurant was overpowering. There should be a screen or partition between the bar and the restaurant. Service was attentive but they failed to bring the coffee until prompted. Food was of a high standard but far too expensive. We paid £60 per head for two courses with some very indifferent house wine. Why or why must these establishment mark up by 400%? Better value and ambience is available at the Ritz and they include service charge in their prices

What the South Bank and indeed London has needed for a long time. A bar so good you feel like you're in a buzzing metropolis like NY or Tokyo, a rare sensation in clonky old London. Superb views, great drinks, lovely bar snacks. Dangerous nibbley things though – I managed to polish of two dishes of fried maize and cranberries before they were forcibly removed from my reach by my boyfriend, ever concerned for my waistline…

Mouth watering menus and spectacular views by night, Skylon offers superb wines served by their own someliers (mostly beatiful and refined french ladies) that are more interested in the wine complimeting you meal that making you spend your hard earned cash. Skylon is luxury at it's best. Available for private functions, this is the place to go for treating 300+ guests to a fabulous evening overlooking the river. The events team are disgustingly helpful!
