ESCAPE TO THE SKIES.
SWIMMING POOL BY DAY,
COOL BAR BY NIGHT.

Far above the noise and heat of the City, the Skypool offers a tranquil escape for hotel guests in the daytime.

Then, as the sun sets, the separation screens are drawn back and it becomes a unique addition to London’s highest bar, Gŏng.



THE POOL WITH A VIEW

Facing west across the City, the 11 x 4-meter heated pool features stunning views of St Paul’s Cathedral, the London Eye and Westminster, providing the perfect spot to enjoy the iconic vistas. 

Feeling on top of the world, from 830 PM onwards, Gŏng guests can enjoy a spot of sophisticated poolside glamour.

Or guests can go for the award-winning Black and Blue Swizzle, which consists of Talisker, honey, lime, PX sherry and blue cheese.

A BAR FOR CHAMPAGNE LOVERS

Champagne lovers can enjoy a wide selection from the champagne bar from rare grower varieties up to the ultimate Grand Marques, and indulge in luxury bar snacks such as Cornish crab, foie gras, and a selection of the finest caviar.

The 30-cover poolside area can also be hired exclusively for the most spectacular sky-high party

COOL ORIENTAL DESIGN

Designed by Andre Fu of AFSO, Gŏng is inspired by the mythical aspect of ‘dou-gong’ – a series of interlocking brackets that are used extensively in historical Chinese architecture.

The Skypool fits seamlessly with the traditional Eastern design combined with modern Western glamour and an oversized ‘paint scroll’, measuring a length of 15 meters, appears to float overhead.
