Right in the middle of central London, nestled in the shadow of Tower Bridge, you'll find One Tower Bridge, a modern drinking and dining destination on the bank of the River Thames. There are so many reasons to visit (as if you needed convincing in the first place), but here are our top five:
1) It's got restaurants for every kind of budget
Despite it's glossy appearance, One Tower Bridge isn't the kind of place you'd only visit after payday, when you're on holiday or whenever the parents are in town. From high-end modern British dining with Welsh twist at Masterchef The Professionals' Tom Simmons restaurant to authentic Italian pizza from the soon-to-open Vapiano, there's something for everyone here, from everyday meals to special-occasion blowouts.
2) Whatever you're craving, One Tower Bridge has you covered
Thinking about Thai? Hello, Rosa's London Bridge. Seeking out something sweet? Get yourself over to Custard, Gunpowder's Kolkata-inspired bakery, for a Narangi custard tart. But that's not all: just around the corner you can pick up vegan fast food at byChloe, looking out across the river is the luxurious The Ivy Tower Bridge, and in Crown Square you can find the newly opened steak and fish restaurant from Brighton The Coal Shed, too.
3) And it's a great place to grab a drink
Whether you're looking for a laid-back date venue or a place to catch up with colleagues, Prosecco House is the perfect place to indulge in a glass (or two) of Italy's best-loved sparkling wine at the end of the day. And the bar around the back of The Ivy is also a stunning venue to enjoy an expertly made cocktail or glass of bubbles.
4) It's home to London's largest new theatre in 80 years, too
Which means once you're done taking in the sights and wining and dining, you can pop into Bridge Theatre to catch a play. Right now you can sit down to the new production from Alan Bennett, the author of The History Boys and The Lady in the Van. Tickets for Allelujah start at just £15. Go. Go. Go.
5) The views are pretty hard to beat
Picture this: you've just finished a delicious meal surrounded by the best company. You take one step out of the restaurant and right in front of you, reaching into the sky, is the insurmountable silhouette of Tower Bridge. The lights of the city sparkle on the water and a boat quietly chugs up the Thames. Sounds beautiful, right? We'll see you there.
