Jazz & Blues
London-South East London
May 11, 2018
The Royal Festival Hall, sitting proudly on the South Bank, is a London landmark. And, having been extensively refurbished, it’s now blessed with a glam new bar and restaurant, the Skylon Bar and Grill. Taking its name from the iconic Festival of Britain structure, Skylon has an appropriately retro feel inside, enlivened by fresh contemporary design touches (the chandeliers are particularly funky) and an incomparable view of the Thames, the true highlight of the room. In the centre of the space sits a raised bronze-clad cocktail bar, serving an array of drinks, both classic and contemporary. The wine list is also already renowned for its breadth. Alongside this, the restaurant is split into both fine dining and more causal areas, depending on what you fancy. Ideal for a pre-concert drink or just for soaking up that evocative view.
