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.

    Good food and service. We didn't feel rushed at all. A lovely atmosphere and the the staff were superb. Fabulous experience for a 1st visit.

    I've been here a few times before. It's a stylish bar which isn't ridiculously expensive and always has a great atmosphere. Yesterday's visit was no exception, except the waiter was much better than I'm used to. He was friendly, smiling, well-informed and made a real effort to ensure we had a great time. It was really super.

    We went for lunch in the bar as a birthday celebration for my mother. Table and view were lovely and the service was very friendly without being intrusive. We had a great time and enjoyed the food too. I asked to make a change to my meal because I don't eat potatoes and this was dealt with with a minimum of fuss. Overall we had a very positive experience and, as a bonus, we could hear the Sunday lunchtime jazz drifting over from the brasserie.

    The whole experience was amazing. The staff were happy and helpful. The drinks and food was very good quality. I could not suggest any improvements that needed to be made a excellent experience. The booking was straight forward and efficient. The waiter was brilliant, quick,polite and smiling all the time no request was too much. There is not I fault or suggestion that would improve my experience. 1000%

    Brilliant service. Great table.
    Music was a little loud, and also a little bit bland.

    I had a marvelous brunch time with my parents on Sunday in the oxo bar. We ordered eggs Royal,English breakfast and kandori,and we enjoyed all the plates. the mimosa drink was good too and the espresso coffee had a really Italian taste(that for my dad,Italian,it was really important!) We had a good table with an amazing views and the workers were nice and professional.

    Excellent service staff helpful, welcoming and polite, we did not wait long for drinks or food.
    Cocktails were delicious along with the food, would definately return on my next visit to London.
    Mostly though, the views were really lovely; much better than I had imagined.

    Good view and great selection of light bites. Would recommend the Brasserie as a better alternative with more room and better seating.
