Bar in Greenwich & South London

Image by Will Jones Lonely Planet

The superlative views of the city from this alfresco bar, set on the 10th floor of a multistorey car park, have punters queuing round the block on sunny days. The bare concrete space has a simple wooden bar, benches and a big red canopy, as well as a cracking little cocktail list, craft beer on tap, snacks and sharing platters.

Some may find the long-drop toilets a nasal challenge.
