8 at The Londoner

Welcome to 8 at The Londoner. A decadent izakaya rooftop bar that reimagines the traditions and informal style of Japanese drinking establishments. Three stunning spaces set the scene for a sophisticated rooftop experience above the capital’s most iconic neighbourhood. Join us on the eighth floor for an unforgettable evening of innovative cocktails, fine Japanese spirits and modern Japanese cuisine.


From 15th July

Saturday Omakase Lunch

Now introducing Saturday lunch on the rooftop. Choose from our à la carte or a five-course omakase tasting menu with the London skyline as your backdrop, plus live DJs on the decks from 12.30pm.

To celebrate the start of our rooftop lunches we are offering all omakase lunch guests a complimentary Ki No Bi cocktail, crafted using the finest Kyoto gin. 

The Izakaya Tradition

Our contemporary interpretation expertly blends traditional and innovative techniques and ingredients to create extraordinary cocktails, alongside simple yet elegant eats.

The Sake Collection

The team behind 8 at The Londoner consulted a sake sommelier to shortlist the most exceptional sake expressions in London, including a very special Dassai Beyond.

The Whisky Collection

Complex, rare and exceptional. 8 at The Londoner presents one of Europe’s finest selections of Japanese whisky, featuring some of Suntory’s rarest age statements and two Kurizawa Pearl Geishas.
