The cocktails are pricey, the service a little pretentious, but the views were spectacular! They are busy because of the views but its worth a little hassle and a little rude service to see the city this way. Tip: Make a reservation for prime times!

The view is fab but you need to book to use the roof bar in advance at peak times. The cocktails were crazy expensive even for London. A champagne cocktail was £12 a glass where you can get happy hours for half the price in...More

Poor customer service. Condescending and patronising. Lied to us as they claimed the vista bar was full. It wasn't. Refused to serve my friend as we "didn't look right". Awful pretentious staff there- I eat at Michelin starred restaurants regularly and yet I have never...More

This place has lovely drinks and decent food. However, the main attraction is the view. As trafalgar sq is one of my favourite places in London I completely fell in love with the Vista bar.

Popped in for a Pimms on a very sunny day with some friends from Ireland! Great spot, views were perfect (weather helped) and was a nice trendy bar! Would recommended for small groups or couples!

St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which
indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the
establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during
a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s
