Bluebird's Favourite Feature:
The showpiece Galvin's restaurant is located at the top of the hotel and is perhaps the most enviably located restaurant in London. When not looking at the views diners can enjoy the timeless art deco decorations whilst sipping the world's finest champagne.
At over 100m high Galvin's serves up Michelin-starred food amongst the stars, and in all probability with Hollywood stars too.
