Christmas chat? In October? Usually I'd be against any sniff of Santa so early on in the year but with 2020 going the way it has, we're going to need a miracle. Cue Pergola Paddington, the West London hotspot that's usually home to 4 delicious restaurants, 3 bars and a floral-filled rooftop. This winter, the massive space is going full-on festive to bring you Miracle on Kingdom Street.
Swapping summery decor for twinkling lights, snow-dusted pine trees and cosy Moët & Chandon Champagne chalets, Pergola is ready to jingle our bells. From 12th November, you'll find après ski vibes, a belting menu of winter warmers, a heated Bavarian-style hall, live music and even DJs. Snuggle up in blankets as you stay warm over mulled wine, hot apple cider and Bourbon-infused concoctions.
Hungry? There's a Bavarian spread of bratwurst and currywurst, as well as camembert croquettes, bubbling raclette and boozy cheese fondue for all you dairy queens. But the twinkling star on top of the tree has got to be the Insta-worthy candy cane s’mores.
Sounds like a cracker.
Miracle on Kingdom Street lands on 12th November at Pergola Paddington, 5 Kingdom Street, London, W2 6PY. Expect social distancing measures and food available daily from 12pm to 10pm.
