Robbie Bargh's Gorgeous Group revamps Tower Hill's Sky Lounge

Robbie Bargh's Gorgeous Group is to revamp the Sky Lounge rooftop bar in London's Tower Hill, converting it into a new venue called Savage Garden.

Savage Garden, on the 12th floor of the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel London - Tower of London, is due to open in June.

Gorgeous Group has been responsible for creating the name and concept of the 400-capacity lounge bar, which occupies 8,870 sq ft, while interior design is being overseen by Grapes Design.

It will include a feature bar, cocktail lounge, dining areas and private hire spaces, as well as two large outdoor terraces.

Interiors will feature "scored and torn" surfaces and a graffiti mural, contrasting with soft velvet finishes and "marbelised" floors.

The north terrace, which has views over Tower Bridge, the Shard, and St Paul's Cathedral, will have a retractable roof, allowing it to host events in both summer and winter.

Food is expected to include traditional comfort dishes and feasting plates with a "dark twist", while the venue also promises "twisted cocktails" using premium spirits.

Hotel owner Shahin Esmail said: "I had a vision of creating a wild and escapist bar that tears up the rulebook. A bar that surprises and delights. Yes, we will have incredible vistas out over London, but Savage Garden will be so much more than just the view, it will be an intriguing and engaging experience, from start to finish."

Robbie Bargh of Gorgeous Group added: "Savage Garden is breaking away from the botanical trend to provide a moodier, more alternative vibe to rooftop drinking and dining. It's bringing something a bit different to London's bar scene."
