As crazy as it may seem they really do have apres ski bars in London. In the heart of our capital city without a real mountain or ski slope in sight you can drink your favourite Alpine tipple in an authentically designed ski bar. It is easy to believe that you are just below the slopes of St. Moritz or Gstaad when you are propping in the bar in one of London’s atmospheric apres ski bars.
Adapting back to the flat urban and ‘snowless’ metropolis of London following a skiing holiday in the likes of the Swiss Alps or Spanish sierras is bound to take a bit of getting used to. To help skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts get over their post-holiday blues are the London apres ski bars.
Whilst London is certainly void of an Eiger, Matterhorn or Jungfrau, it does offer a night time escape to help the rosy-cheeked skiers and snowboarders feel more ‘at home’.
Take a look at three great apres ski bars in London.
Lodge D’Argent, Liverpool Street
Lodge D’Argent is a winter terrace at the famous Coq d’Argent restaurant. With its antlers, blankets and ski jacket-wearing waiters, this faux winter wonderland terrace provides an atmospheric environment to drink ‘hot toddies’ and claim pole position skiing bragging rights over your friends with your holiday memoirs. Lodge D’Argent is particularly proud of its well-kept Havana cigars which can be sampled on the terrace.
They say that New York is the city that never sleeps but that phrase could certainly be applied to London as well, particularly at Christmas. The festive season is naturally an exceptionally busy time for the restaurateurs of the capital, which has an overwhelming choice of top quality festive fodder for the consumer.
If you are wanting to eat out on Christmas Day in London you’ll have plenty of choice, as many restaurants open their doors to the public on the most important holiday of the Christian calendar.
In order to really celebrate Christmas dinner in style why not head to the Wyndham Grand Hotel in the exclusive Chelsea Harbour? Whether you are seeking somewhere plush to leisurely wine and dine with colleagues or are looking for somewhere fun, lively and festive, not to mention delicious, to experience a special and memorable Christmas dinner with the family on Christmas Day in London, Wyndham Grand has several festive dining packages to cater for different occasions and circumstances.
Christmas Day Table d’Hote Menu
