The views from Oblix on the 32nd floor of the Shard aren’t quite as impressive as the panoramas from the 69th-floor viewing platform, but you’ll still be wowed. Relax with a cocktail (from £13.50) in the stylish bar and enjoy views towards the City, East and South London. Live music or DJ most nights from 7pm. Smart dress recommended.

Children are welcome until 6pm. You must go through security before entering the lift.
