Duck & Waffle | Bishopsgate Restaurant
Stroll to the gleaming base of the Heron Tower.
Behind a small glass door next to the main entrance you’ll spot a smiley hostess with a clipboard and really white teeth: go ahead and inform her that today you’ll be heading to the roof.
Obviously she’ll have already guessed this, but it’s always nice to involve others in your plans.
Take the lift past Sushisamba straight up to the 40th Floor, where you’ll find Duck & Waffle, a cocktail bar and restaurant named after its signature dish: fried duck egg and mustard maple syrup which – like everything else at D&W – can be enjoyed 24 hrs/day.
In the restaurant you can choose from a mix of internationally-inspired small sharing plates like bacon-wrapped dates; dorset scallops with black truffle and a foie gras “all day breakfast”, or you can just look out over London from the bar while fine-tuning and tasting cocktails.
A brief note regarding your journey up there.
On entering the lift that White Teeth Lady directs you to, you’ll want to either be chewing gum; yawning or expertly performing the “Valsalva Maneuver”, because the speed at which you’ll be propelled to the top of the tower will guarantee a mild ear-popping.
It’s actually the #1 reason for heading here…
…. after the cocktails, the food and the ridiculous views.
NOTE: There’s also a dining room for private hire, which seats up to 16. You can book a private or public table on their website here.
