Our Guide To Winter Pop-Ups in London
Out come the thermals as temperatures plummet and those dreary long nights set in. Let’s not get too gloomy though, as the onset of the festive seasons brings with it some of the capital's most exciting pop-up experiences. Rocking up all over the city and equipped with seasonal hot toddies, private igloos, warming fare and all manner of quirky entertainment, these are the best winter pop-ups in London this year.
Make it a truly special one with your bubble in tow this Christmas as City of London favourite Aviary have teamed up with Tanqueray Gin on this year's rooftop igloos. Expect blankets, heaters, views, food and drinks like no other as you cosy up under the stars.
We're always big fans when it comes to news of the new rooftop at Queen of Hoxton, and this winter is set to be no different. They're keeping punters warm with hot toddies and fire pits galore as guests enjoy a premium après ski experience set to a backdrop of the East London skyline.
Inspired by alpine lodges with its cosy furnishings, Bar Under the Bridge is a quintessential Christmas pop-up on the South Bank. As well as offering plenty of festive food and drink, there's sure to be heaps of activities to get you into the yuletide spirit.
Take a moment from the cold and head to Festival Terrace at the Southbank Centre, where The Circus Bar offers a quirky and cosy retreat. Snuggle up by the fire and sip on hot toddies with saucy burgers before catching a classic Christmas flick at the secret cinema.
Cute as hell, Miracle Pop-Up is the kitsch American phenomenon that's coming to Covent Garden. Transforming Henrietta Hotel into a '70s festive postcard scene, the pop-up will be channelling homely vibes with massive fireplaces, retro cocktails and comfort food bites.
