For a drink with a view, try the Madison Bar nr St Paul's. The terrace is on an eyeline with the cathedral dome and there are stunning views out across the skyline to the new Shard and London Eye. If you're looking for a drink after work, arrive before 5.30 as it gets justifiably very busy. Much recommended
On the Roof with Vintage Salt. If you're after a British seaside escape in central London, you'd be advised to relocate to Vintage Salt on the roof of Selfridges. Head over to The Drift Bar for sundowner cocktails and settle into a deck chair as the sun sets.
