Booking in a Wildly-Popular Venue? No Problem for a London Concierge
A sky garden has just opened atop the Walkie Talkie’s crown floor, but it’s open to reservations-only. No sweat, right? Well… The 35th, 36th, and 37th floors of 20 Fenchurch Street, the Walkie Talkie’s official name, now host a domed sky garden with three fine dining options and offer a fantastic view of London. Gourmands also swear that the gourmet cuts at Fenchurch Seafood Bar & Grill, sourced from British herds and aged in wine for at least 35 days, are to die for. Tea and sandwiches are also must-have treats at either Darwin Brasserie or Sky Pod Bar, perfect for watching the vibrant London sunset. These spots sure sound inviting; the problem is, everyone else thinks so, too. Both the sky garden and its dining outlets quickly run out of slots. Even a lone visitor to the garden would have to book three days to three months in advance.
