Hixter

1 save

London, United Kingdom • Memory • 

It can be quite hard to find places in London that accept large groups without requiring credit card guarantees or minimum spends or other hassle but Hixster is a reliable place for bringing a big group of friends for birthdays and other get togethers. On weekends they have a brunch menu and bottomless prosecco for 25gbp. The menu is a little bit meat-heavy but everything is well cooked and tasty. The salted caramel fondue dessert is great 👍

The Shard - Viewing Gallery

3 saves

London, United Kingdom • Recommendation • 

The centerpiece of the new London Bridge, the shard towers over nearby buildings. You can either pay a fairly steep price to go to the viewing gallery at the top, or go to one of the bats and restaurants about 2/3 of the way up.

Bridge Theatre

1 save

London, United Kingdom • Memory • 

Director Nicholas Hytner opened this brand new theatre in 2017 next to Tower Bridge. They specialize in immersive productions where the audience in the pit becomes part of the performance. I recently went to see A Midsummers Night Dream starring Gwendoline Christie (Brienne from game of thrones) and the very funny Hammed Animashaun as Bottom. You are literally inches from the actors as they perform and sometimes do acrobatics above your head! Try to catch this show, you might even hear some Beyonce when you least expect it.

Gunpowder Tower Bridge

London, United Kingdom • Memory • 

Opened by a husband and wife team Harneet and Devina Baweja this could be best described as trendy Indian tapas. Small plates let you try a variety of Indian inspired tastes. Best was the Kashmiri spiced lamb chops. they also have a cocktail menu. Steps away form Tower Bridge. Easy to get a table at 6 but gets busy later.
