It’s all about the views. Which is kind of fortunate considering the decor at Eclipse – while undoubtedly plush (the carpets could successfully cushion a fall from a 10-foot drop, let alone one from grace) – is a little, erm, ’80s. But somehow this works for, rather than against a bar where service is sleek and gracious (complimentary mishmash to offset the arctic air con, mobile table lights if you find reading the menu in the low light difficult, a selection of tasty bar snacks that are more amuse bouche than Walkers crisps) and the atmosphere elegantly subdued.
The emphasis here is on champagne, with an excellent selection available by both bottle and glass. There is also a decent range of cocktails and spectacular 26-storey views over the Creek and beyond.
