Manhattan feeling in London

Where big city lights meet modern architecture.

The name of the article just sets the mood -Friday night, a glass of wine, or a trendy cocktail in your hand. You are dressed up surrounded by the ambience of a lounge, great music and the sparkling view of Big City lights.

Canary Wharf is my young, ever-growing and modern friend. It's only been around for a few decades but it has already proven to be an ambitious, safe and beautiful area designed for future generations. Many know it as the financial heart of London but there's a lot more on offer - stylish boutiques, high-tech skyscrapers, top-notch restaurants, exclusive fitness clubs and luxury hotels. There's always something new to explore.

One of such places is the newly opened 39-storey tall Novotel overlooking the Thames and the surrounding skylines. The rooftop bar and restaurant spread across floors 37-39 is rarely over-crowded, so scroll further to see why you should save this bookmark.

Without stating the obvious, life is all about exploring and sharing the experience.

My top tip is to visit the Bar at 11:00 on a Weekday - you will be lucky enough night to enjoy the quiet ambience and unbeatable view.

So what do you think? YAY or NAY?
