With only 4 days to go until the opening of The View from The Shard, tickets are selling hot and fast! At a grand height of 310 metre, The Shard is now the tallest building in Western Europe and has become a stunning symbol of London.
At crazy heights above the clouds, you may need to settle your stomach after your visit! In the shadow of The Shard, head to Quarter Bar & Lounge, next to London Bridge Hotel, a great bar serving a mouth-watering selection of dishes to perk you up after your long journey skyward!
Can’t decide on one dish? Quarter Bar offers a tasty alternative – sharing platters. Perfect for a little social grazing, you can have as little or as much as you like, as long as there is no arguing over the last olive! Experience tastes from around the globe and order a selection, from the tasty parma ham and cheeses of the bella Italian platter (above), to the roasted red peppers, lamb kofta and tzatziki dip of the Greek platter (below), or stay a little closer to home with the popular English cheese platter, an essential dish when enjoying a red wine tipple!
And lastly, to toast The Shard, enjoy the bar’s specially crafted Shard-ini cocktail, a smooth blend of fresh watermelon, passion fruit and vanilla infused vodka. Perhaps if you’re afraid of heights it might be best to enjoy one (or three) of these before your visit!
Book tickets to see The View From the Shard now via London Bridge Hotel’s website. Quarter Bar & Lounge and London Bridge Hotel are just two minutes walk from The Shard – ideal for making your trip up Europe’s tallest building a great day for all!
