Named after the defunct 1950s tower, this excellent restaurant on top of the refurbished Royal Festival Hall is divided into grill and fine-dining sections by a large bar (open until 1am). The decor is cutting-edge 1950s: muted colours and period chairs (trendy then, trendier now) while floor-to-ceiling windows bathe you in magnificent views of the Thames and the City.

Weekday lunch is a bargain at £18/25 in the grill/restaurant. Dress smart casual (no sportswear). Booking is advised, especially for the restaurant.
