The main reason to visit is the views - you can see over Leicester Square & beyond, so it's very pretty, particularly around Christmas time. The drinks, atmosphere etc. are all as you would expect for the area. I did attend a Valentine's evening party...More

Lovely views, terrible drinks that take forever to make. Toilets were very smelly and needed attention. Poorly patched up paintwork around bar. Horrible entrance to the rooftop area, not very glamorous. Far nicer places around.

Been going Penthouse for years. Have had so many great nights with friends. Its not as good as it use to be. The managers need to be bit stricter on who they let it. Staff are friendly. They need to lower the drinks price though.
