SKYE HALLA AT QUEEN OF HOXTON

The bi-annual themes at Queen of Hoxton’s rooftop bar are always a

treat, and this winter Vikings rule at a Nordic hideout decked with a

long boat, feasting hall inside a wigwam, fire pits, driftwood sculptures

and plenty of drinking horns, too. Mead will be flowing as will foraged

cocktails and you can tuck into slow-braised turkey, salmon rostis and

pork belly hotpot.

WINTER SKI TERRACE AT THE COURTHOUSE HOTEL

The terrace at The Courthouse Hotel in Soho is always a nice spot for

a drink and now it’s been transformed into full cosy winter mode, with

an après-ski vibe. Sink into thick, fleece-covered chairs beneath toasty

heaters and ski lanterns and indulge in some Grey Goose cocktails

and warming treats like smoky chorizo in red wine and hot sticky toffee

pudding.

HENDRICK'S WINTER BOTANICAL GARDEN AT MR FOGG'S

Mr Fogg’s is a wonderfully OTT tavern, gin palace and private venue

that’s stuffed with eccentric ornaments and taxidermy (from Phileas

Fogg’s travels around the world, of course) and serves some excellent

gin-based cocktails and hearty food. At Residence, their pop-up winter

terrace will transport you back to a Victorian Christmas featuring lush

evergreens bedecked with homemade decorations, mistletoe and holly.
