Winter rooftop vodka bar

Skylounge, the stunning rooftop bar atop the DoubleTree Hilton in Tower Hill, has announced the arrival of Valhalla Vodka Bar, a cosy, winter residency on the outdoor terrace, which overlooks Tower Bridge, The Shard and The Gherkin. 

Launching on 25th November, the Valhalla Vodka Bar will offer city dwellers and pilgrimaging guests alike a relaxing atmosphere, vodka cocktails and wholesome, Scandi-style food.

Elsewhere, bespoke winter cocktails (with authentic Viking names!) have been developed by Snow Queen Vodka, a premium organic vodka, which are sure to warm you as you guzzle. Choose between Glapsvidr (a fruity serve with Aperol, passion fruit puree and apple juice), Ginnarr (the zingy one, with orgeat, lime juice, passion fruit and pineapple juice), or Hrafnass (a floral creation with lavender syrup, blueberry syrup, lime, apple juice and soda).
