Vertigo 42

Despite my crippling fear of heights, once again my boyfriend dragged me to the top of one of the highest skyscrapers in London *shudder*

Vertigo 42 is a Champagne bar situated at the very top of the Natwest tower with views that (quite literally in my case) take your breath away.

With floor to ceiling windows on one side and a mirror on the other there really is no escaping the beautiful view. The Champagne is delicious and the service is impecable, no glass was left unattended for the entirety of the night.

As you can imagine, Vertigo 42 does come at a price, with limited seating there is also a limit on the amount of time you can be up there if it is busy. However, you really can see the beauty that is London from up there without the tourist market that comes with the Shard.

Fine Line Review – Canary Wharf

I visited Fine Line last Friday and I have to say, I wasn’t impressed. I very rarely write a bad review about a bar as it does take a lot to make me unimpressed.

However, in the first instance it was a beautiful evening and therefore everyone was crowded outside. I got told by the bouncer that if I was drinking with Fine Line that I needed to stay within their area … there was no room but he insisted.

After this I popped to the bathrooms and they were in a terrible state. There was no toilet roll and it looked like they hadn’t taken a look in there all night.

I then went to the bar to get some shots for my friend and I and they had run out of a lot of the options that I asked for, including Baileys and Sambuca.

I bought my friend here as it was recommended by somebody and I feel really disappointed that it wasn’t up to the standards I thought it would be. I may have caught them on a bad night but I honestly feel that some of those things could have been avoided easily and it would have changed completely what I have written.

Hi :)

Hey everybody,

I love where I live and the things that I get to experience. I hope that you enjoy reading about what I do and hopefully do some of the things yourself as well! There are plenty of reasons not to sit in, even when it’s raining! And let me tell you, in England it rains a lot!

I’ll update as often as I can and please feel free to comment as I love to hear your feedback!

I am an avid baker and I also love going out to eat so watch this space for any amazing recipes or great restaurants that I find.

Catch you soon!
