What they say:

Following on from their first Napoleon-themed bar (Tonight Josephine), The Adventure Bar Group have opened a second spot in the same building. Bar Elba is a tropical rooftop paradise that is inspired by the French leader's 300-day exile on the Mediterranean island of Elba. Along with amazing views of London, there is also neon colours and cool designs with Finch Interiors and artist agency Bread Collective teaming up for the interiors; think street art style block lettering.

What we say:

With space for 350 people, Bar Elba looks like it's going to attract the Southbank and commuter crowds as it opened at the top of Mercury House this July. Especially when they hear about the drinks the bar has to offer; as well as the usual mix of aperol spritzes and other summery flavours, there is also frose - frozen rose wine. Top top things off, there is a daily happy hour from 5-7pm every day.
