Cities like London, especially through their landmarks, have a resource that few other can really offer: views. There has been an abundance of restaurants and bars that have been tapping that resource, but the hunt for the “best” has continued. Until now.

If it isn’t impressive enough to be called Sky Garden and actually have a garden at the top of the 35th floor, Sky Pod also offers 360 degrees view of London and one of the most impressively futuristic atmospheres I have seen. The high ceiling really does the trick and not once have my fellow guests not been impressed when walking inside. If you book in advance (another advantage is that it’s not nearly as trendy as Duck & Waffle so you can book even a few days before) for breakfast you can skip all the queues of people waiting to just see the garden.
We opted for the “breakfast” at the Sky Pod – but the expectations from a food perspective weren’t that high. The Sky Pod is more of a bar – though Sky Garden does have a brasserie and restaurant as well. The scones and muffins were all delicious, even if not immediately fresh (which takes away the pleasant warm dough). At the end of the day, however, this is a place where I want to take people to see amazing views and to feel good, as the funky music plays in the background and I can easily imagine myself being in a bar in Nar Shadaa, minus the Twileks dancing on my table.
