We concur with Belinda Carlisle. Heaven is a place on Earth. And guess what, it’s called Seabird. This seafood specialist spot on the 14th floor of The Hoxton hotel in Southwark has an outdoor space that feels distinctly New York rooftop meets Cote d’Azur vacation, complete with palm trees and arguably one of the best skyline views of London going. That being said, you shouldn’t dismiss Seabird as just a pretty face. It’s home to London’s best oyster experience, fun creative cocktails, and for a special occasion, you can’t get better than their whole lobster combined with a bottle of champagne and that view.
