Overlooking St Paul's Cathedral, Madison restaurant benefits from some of the most sought-after panoramic views in London. Led by grill classics from the wood-fired Josper grill, the Madison menu is a hearty blend of rich British and Mediterranean flavours. On the top floor of One New Change, the Manhattan-style restaurant is flooded with light from its floor-to-ceiling windows, whilst the rooftop terrace and bar regularly plays host to DJs.

Madison is one of my favorite spots in London; there is no other rooftop bar quite like it. Literally facing St Pauls and overlooking the Shard and the London Eye, it boasts some of the best views of London. It is extremely spacious outside (yet a small bar inside) with seating and heat lamps for the less forgiving months of the year. The wine list is varied and the cocktails are sublime....more
It was one of those nights where a collared shirt and blazer was accompanied by a beautiful dress and high heels. So of course, me and my girlfriend were out for dinner and drinks in breathtaking London. It was just that, we needed a location that served us tantalising food and beverages and offered us the skyline of the iconic city.
We had heard of Madison's before, but never really...more
Quite a good view, best enjoyed in summer- when it is very popular with out-of-towners at the weekend.
The food is pretty well executed, but fairly timid. Think a step up from All Bar One, but not a very big step- burgers and steak , and a little bit of mild exotica ( a well done lamb tagine, for example). Would pass for the best restaurant in a middling size market town somewhere...more
A wonderful location in the city. Great 'afterwork drinks' atmosphere and lovely view of St Paul's Cathedral.
A little tip for you - it gets pretty busy to get the lift to the bar (in the New Change shopping centre) after 7pm. There was a super long queue when I went on a Friday. So, get the escalator to the first floor and catch the lift there (no queue) ;)
Well worth a visit if you...more
Madison has some clear pros and cons, though I'd give it four stars just for its unique pros.
First, if you work in the Bank area, the location is perfect. In my case, this place is about 10min walk away from my office which makes it an ideal after-work venue for any purpose.
Second, the view of St Paul's is one of a kind. Depending on the time of the day, you'll get different experiences...more
