High up on the 32nd floor of The Shard, Oblix is a New York-style grill from celebrated chef restaurateur duo Rainer Becker and Arjun Waney, serving charcoal-grilled meats, wood-fired pizzas and spectacular views of London. This will be the fourth London restaurant from the pair responsible for Zuma and Roka, which has branches in Charlotte Street and Canary Wharf, but with Oblix they have, sensibly, taken inspiration from the towering building it occupies. Reminded of the high rises of New York, they have gone for a classic New York grill and given it a twist by using British and European ingredients. The lounge bar, with its live music acts and drinks chilled with chunks of ice chiselled from large, purified blocks, sounds super cool. Interiors have been developed by Italian architect and designer Claudio Silvestrin (whose clients include gallerist Victoria Miro, designer Giorgio Armani and rap star Kanye West) to frame rather than compete with the stunning views. As Becker explains, "You can't compete with the view... it's what being in the Shard is all about."
