Found on the 8th-floor of London’s iconic OXO Tower, the OXO bar offers an inspirational cocktail list and stunning views of the River Thames. Enjoy your drinks in the sunshine on the OXO Tower Bar terrace or watch the city sparkle from the comfort of the bar as the nights draw in.

Headed up by Bar Manager Paulius Patumsis, the OXO Tower Bar presents an ever-evolving list of cocktails, making use of the most innovative techniques and products on the market. Sample creative house mixes like the Penicillin – a warming mix of Dewar’s scotch with lemon, honey, ginger and a splash of Laphroaig, or the Good Queen Bess with gin and raspberry ripple. World wines and fine spirits are also available, as well as a list of craft beers cherry-picked from small-batch breweries.

To complement the drinks list, the innovative bar menu features some great snacking options including fried squid and parmesan aioli, or sweet potato wedges with cucumber and dill yoghurt and a sweet chili dressing. For something a little heartier, opt for the express lunch menu and tuck into a juicy burger with chips or keep it traditional and enjoy fish and chips with tartare sauce. And for something on the weekend mornings, book in and enjoy a relaxed brunch with choices from waffles, bacon and maple syrup, to a London breakfast.

One of the capital’s most sought-after bars, the OXO Tower Bar in London is just 8 minutes’ walk from Southwark and Waterloo and 10 minutes’ walk from Blackfriars Tube station.

    Excellent service, wide choice of Gina. Had the fish and chips it was a bit soggy and watery

    Hi, I booked the Bar at the OXO Tower for 2pm on Saturday 18th March but arrived early. This was no trouble to your staff as the accommodated us with no hassle at all. We had a truly wonderful stay with my wife enjoying a superb cocktail along with your excellent waffles with syrup. The staff were exceptional and this added to our excellent stay at your Bar. This is one place we hope to visit again in the future.

    We had the express menu in the brasserie bar and it exceeded expectations all round. Great staff, lovely food and we weren't rushed at all.

    The food was absolutely stunning!! We had the assortment of duck and the lobster to start, both served to a high presentation standard and the food quality/taste was amazing. Onto our main and we went for the Loin of Lamb for two which was served on our plate by our waiter which was a lovely touch to an already stunning dining experience. The food was just divine. Had a lovely cheese board to finish off which was explained to us in detail by our waiter.

    Our waiter for the night was incredibly helpful, so polite, engaging and served with such graciousness that we would expect from a 5* Luxury Hotel/restaurant. The views were absolutely gorgeous on such a clear night and the overall atmosphere of the entire night was great - our best meal and experience at a restaurant as a couple by far in our five years together!

    We ended up staying until 11pm in the bar drinking the gorgeous Harvey Nichols Pinot Noir and extending our already perfect valentines night together.

    All I can say is THANK YOU to the Chef's, our waiter and all of the staff involved in helping us to enjoy our valentines meal, such a great experience and we can't wait to return soon for our next celebration!
