Bar Hütte

These Christmas huts in Manchester are ideal for a karaoke party this festive season. You'll get a bombardino cocktail filled with hot rum and eggnog on arrival, followed by the chance to belt out your favourite tunes across the private ski chalet-inspired space. 

Heaton Park Dining Domes

Available for afternoon tea and lunchtime reservations until 20th December, Heaton Park Cafe's heated outdoor dining domes are sure to bring you lakeside views alongside tasty treats this season. Expect everything from burgers to sweet treats on the waterfront.

Miracle On Cross Street

The most Christmassy of pop-up bars, Miracle On Cross Street is the perfect pick for getting into the festive spirit - and it's hidden to boot. Expect themed drinks, a huge Christmas tree, candy canes and more magical decor besides.

The Lawn Club's Winter Yurt

While it was once best-known as a gorgeous igloo restaurant in Manchester, The Lawn Club is now the place to check out a pop-up winter yurt with an apres-ski disco theme. Grab your loved ones and head to the fairy-lit pergola or book into the tipi for the full festive experience. 

Ramona & The Firehouse's Winter Village

Ramona and The Firehouse are once again joining forces for their Winter Village, where fairy light-covered tipi spaces, tequila log cabins and roaring fires come together. Plus, there's mulled wine to sip and raucous raves to attend afterwards.

The Oast House's TeePee

That iconic winter tipi in Manchester is back for 2024, but better than ever - with not only one, but three tents all joined together. From Yorkshire pud wraps to loaded pies, Christmas cocktails and firepits, The Oast House has everything you could need for your seasonal destination.
