London's Best Winter Terraces

Discover London's best winter terraces and festive pop-ups...so far!

The Garden at Corinthia London 

Step into a wintery haven in the heart of London. The semi-covered courtyard has been elegantly transformed into a stunning winter terrace - complete with twinkling lights, roaring fireplaces and warming sheep's wool and alpaca blankets. Enjoy an enticing and hearty Alpine-inspired menu by Executive Chef André Garret. Winter warming dishes include raclette served with new potatoes & winter pickles and a beef cheek`Bourguignon`with pomme pureĢe. Desserts include the return of the much-loved Kaiserschmarrn - a classic Austrian dish of lightly sweetened shredded pancake with a fruit compote. There’s also a seasonal cocktail selection with a Hot Negroni, as well as a luxurious hot chocolate with a choice of Green Chartreuse, Amaretto, or Frangelico.

Pergola on The Piste

Following its sell-out ‘Deck the Halls’ pop-up last Christmas, Pergola Paddington returns with another festive event as it transforms into ‘Pergola on The Piste’ - a picturesque Alpine ski lodge, bringing après-ski style partying to London until early Spring. The space, with its log walls, features murals of mountain scenes, a secluded chairlift, cosy bookable Alpine chalets and retro ski equipment for display. The drinks menu is dedicated to mountain tipples, with shot skis, demi-peche and warming mulled wines and ciders. The food offering features Alpine inspired dishes, including much loved favourites such as baked whole camembert, crispy truffle mushrooms, Alpine charcuterie and more. Open daily. 

 

Dior Cafe

The gingerbread-themed space, inspired by the fairy-tale house of Hansel and Gretel, feels distinctively Dior: think luxurious toile de Jouy seating and picture-perfect tableware embellished with the maison’s Cannage motif. There's an all-day menu of French cuisine with a British twist. Stop in for a breakfast of smoked-salmon and caviar omelette or a selection of pastries, or an lunch of Cornish crab with crisp green apple. And for dinner - feast on the likes of Atlantic lobster Thermidor served with a yuzu vinaigrette and roasted chestnut velouté with winter chanterelles and black truffle. 

Whispering Angel Alpine Terrace at Stanley’s

Dressed to inspire the retro ski vibes of Chamonix, Val Thorens and Courcheval - this alpine terrace brings the slopes to the King’s Road. Experience the essence of après and be transported into the French mountains, with a touch of Whispering Angel pink. Perfect pairings of Stanley’s classics ( Scottish cod with sprouting broccoli and heritage pork with pickled mustard & black truffle sauce) are served alongside the iconic Chateau’s Whispering Angel and Rock Angel cuvees. Open 8th to 22nd December. 

 

God's Garden

A winter pop-up bar and hidden heated hideout, set in the courtyard of One Marylebone Church - the Grade I listed Georgian building, just a stone’s throw away from Great Portland Street. The venue - discovered through Floward's flower shop and verdant greenhouse - sits sheltered under two large tents, decorated with dramatic foliage and opulent Persian rugs. The perfect location for grabbing winter tipples including the ‘Hot Angel’; Whispering Angel’s take on mulled wine, accompanied by an indulgent winter feasting menu. 

The Bishop at The Berkeley

This winter, The Bishop at The Berkeley brings cosy, countryside gastropub vibes to Belgravia. With a name inspired by the mitre that originally graced The Berkeley hotel's logo, this is a pub pop-up infused with the hotel’s heritage. Rustic tables come laden with classic pub nibbles - with a twist. Think crispy pork scratchings, Welsh ‘Rare-bites’ and soft Tunworth to share. Elsewhere there's homemade burgers topped with autumn truffle, slow-braised lamb shank and daily specials from ‘Wellington Wednesday’ to Saturday’s rabbit ragu and prawn pie. Sunday is an all-the-trimmings roast affair. Pair it all with a good ol’ pint of their own draft beer. Pictured.

The Alpine Chalet at Number One Park Lane

This festive pop-up sees (from November 17) the terrace at the InterContinental London Park Lane transformed into a Swiss-inspired winter chalet, perfect for cosy al fresco dinner and drinks in Mayfair this festive season. The beautifully crafted Alpine Chalet, complete with heaters and cosy blankets, provides the perfect sanctuary overlooking the Royal Parks and Wellington Arch. The food menu showcases warming Alpine-inspired dishes, including Alpine truffled macaroni cheese with Gruyère, caramelised onion, apple sauce and shaved truffle and Champagne fondue with Comté, Beaufort, Reblochon, sourdough and new potatoes - washed down with cocktails from Moët & Chandon.
