Gong cocktail bar in Shangri-La at The Shard

GŎNG, on level 52, derives its name from “dougong” - a unique structural element of interlocking wooden brackets, used in traditional Chinese architecture and also featured in the bar.

The venue's modern Asian design was inspired by the mythical aspect of cinnabar - a mineral traditionally used to create the “dragon red” found in the walls of Chinese Imperial Palaces. With a number of intimate chambers – a cocktail bar, champagne bar and swimming pool - the interior is also reminiscent of the traditional boudoirs of the West.

The dramatic backdrop of London’s skyline makes GŎNG the perfect place for sunset cocktails and late-night drinks.

Opening hours: Monday to Saturday 12pm - 1am; Sunday and Bank Holidays 12pm - midnight

Please note that GŎNG takes bookings and walk-ins (seating is subject to availability, and window seats are not guaranteed). All tables are allocated for 1 hour and 30 minutes only. Please note that guests are required to be at least 18 years old to enter the bar. For larger group and event enquiries please contact the bar directly to receive a bespoke quote.
