Every year, more and more festive pop ups come to London, transforming the city with alpine lodges and igloo shelters. Apart from being a great place to take your friends, these winter venues make the perfect backdrop for team-building, Christmas parties and festive private dining.
The ultimate cosy escape can be found on the Southbank, where a row of private snow globes are available for hire during the festive season as well as a 30 capacity restaurant known as Jimmy’s Lodge. The highlight of this pop-up is the fondue themed menu, paying homage to the alpine ski season.
Our favourite Street Feast venue, Dinerama has fully winter proofed itself with a roof and log fires scattered around the venue. The venue has eight bars serving the likes of mulled wine and hot chocolate and street food traders such as Yumpling and Club Mexicana. The whole venue can be hired for 1,000 guests or we recommend the cosy Alpine Lodge which can fit 200.
The Stratford rooftop has undergone a festive transformation with curling lanes, igloos and a ski lodge bar, this year with a ‘Cool Runnings’ theme. The entire space is available to hire for up to 300 guests.
The Bloomsbury favourite winter pop-up is back for another season, bringing an all-out ski lodge to the luxury hotel. Expect pine trees, snowmen and a cosy log cabin, perfect for intimate dining or an elaborate party for up to 200 guests.
This Christmas village on Clapham Common is bringing the popular food stalls from Street Feast, festive markets and a Spiegaltent complete with live shows and a Santa’s Grotto. The entire site can be hired Monday – Wednesday with space for 50 guests up to 4,000 guests including a 200 capacity ice rink.
Head west to Fulham and you’ll find an enchanted forest, packed with festive games, lodges and feasting tables. The entire venue can be exclusively hired, whilst a private dining room for 40 is also available.
