More about Vista at The Trafalgar

Boasting 360-degree views of the city from its serene rooftop setting, Vista at The Trafalgar offers ultra-fashionable drinks and internationally-themed grazing dishes. Look down onto neighbouring Trafalgar Square from the plush outdoor lounge.

Arguably the city’s chicest al fresco destination, Vista bar in Trafalgar Square serves an eclectic and luxurious bar stock. Enjoy the smooth bubbles of vintage champagne, fine wines and sought-after malt whisky blends, as well as fun cocktails like Movista, or a refreshing Vista Boulevard.

This year’s menu centres on the fashion of the capital, with each section matched to an accessory from the fashion industry. Vista bar has paired up with Peckham Rye, a 6th-generation, family-run tie company, to produce chic design for a decadent menu. The food menu is bursting with al fresco flavours, like the wild boar and chorizo burger, sharing platters to enjoy with friends, or quinoa and mango salad: perfect for an express lunch.

Offering rare tranquillity in one of London’s most popular areas, Vista bar in London is found within the exclusive Trafalgar hotel. Charing Cross stations are a 3-minute walk away.

Upon arrival 10 minutes early we were told that it was going to rain and the bar was closing. When I asked for a single drink the reply was probably not. I insisted on at least taking in the view with the other dozen patrons. We were reminded that it was going to rain as we enjoyed the view. We were then told to sit and menus were presented and reminded that we would have to move downstairs shortly. I was more than happy and polite and understood that it was likely to pour down and of course we would move.. Awesome drinks arrived and we were reminded that the bar was closing because of the rain. Meanwhile none of our fellow guests were being harassed, and indeed meals arrived for a couple when it had been made clear we had BOOKED a lunch there, and even if we had to move downstairs, we would be continuing our experience with the hotel. However, twice more we were told it was going to rain as we enjoyed the first half of our drinks. Once, to enquire if this was a groupon experience (with the warning of rain) and secondly to deliver the bill. Finally, just after half the drink, another staff member arrived to insist I pay the bill as it might rain. When I asked her as to the urgency she finally explained that it was because a group earlier had got rained on and some had slipped out without paying. I do not look like a criminal and would have been happy to leave a tab at the bar upon entrance if it was my accent or the fact that my partner was Tinidadian that caused them to be afraid of us and not the other customers. Ironically I could not see the payment machine to remove the discretionary tip they had applied for good service, as the glare of the sun bursting through the clouds stopped me seeing the screen. (It did rain, three hours later). Finally at reception, once again the young lady I was talking to obviously did not understand my accent as when offered to speak to the food and beverage manager I said that it was a good idea; he never arrived!
