. The experience was most enjoyable and extremely memorable. Everyone from the doorman and concierge downstairs to MoMo and his colluegues on the 52nd floor who looked after us at the Gong bar, were very friendly and made us feel welcome and at home. The...table was great, thank you person in the wonderful red dress who made that happen, amazing table with superb views and all the drinks were delicious. I would highly recommend this and will certainly go again. A big thank you to everyone who made the twins 18th birthday drinks a pleasure.More

It was our 25 th wedding anniversary and it was midweek. Choose to come to Gong for the eve . On arrival greeted by friendly staff and shown to a lovely table by a huge window with lots of space . The view was amazing.... We sipped on a bottle of champagne slowly and watched the sun set and London was beautifully lit up . Our waiter then bought over some really tasty seafood . Honestly I couldn’t fault the couple of hours we had there together . I would love to return one day . Thank you Gong and the staff whom were highly professional.More

What a great way to spend an afternoon. We had a lovely table by the window overlooking London and were looked after by Ander who was excellent. We enjoyed some rum based cocktails and wine for drinks and feasted on lovely tempura prawns and chicken...satay. Ok - not cheap but we thought it was well worth it. We will be back!!!More

Wonderful view of London - service was outstanding. Drinks were very interesting but you pay the price for the view. It was a once-in a lifetime experience so I cant really complain about the prices. £22 for a cocktail that tasted like a J2O??More

Yesterday I was at the Gong. The view from the bar is breathtaking. There are few things which I found disapointing: - I got my Saisei-drink in a plastic glas. For this price this is absolutely disapointing! It is a no go! - Guests which...like to enjoy the vista are forced to drink alcohol. I found this discriminating! - The swimming pool left me with the impression that it is there for sensation-seeking. It is a bit weird to have a swimming pool in a bar. I can only recommend the vista, which is realy special.More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,

foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
