London's Best Igloo Hangouts

Discover where to snuggle up and chill out, this winter, with our round-up of London's best igloo destinations.

Coppa Club

Coppa Club’s iconic igloos are back. Nestled between Tower Bridge and The Shard on the Tower of London side of the river, the igloos have been cosied up for the winter season in a sleek, Scandi-style with sheepskin rugs, fluffy blankets and twinkly lights strung up overhead to add to the festive charm. The igloos are on the south-facing terrace making the most of the views over the river Thames. This year - the igloos have some extra special ‘extras’, with sliding doors to catch some rays and fresh air whilst listening to laid back music through the individual speakers. Igloos are bookable in 2-hour slots Monday to Sunday. Open until the end of January. 

Aviary London

A high-altitude winter terrace pop-up promising to elevate any festive celebrations...transporting you 10 floors above the City, take a walk onto a rooftop arctic escape decked with multiple igloos whilst you overlook the impressive star-lit skyline. Bringing a touch of Scandi-style to the sky, each igloo is adorned with ice blue twinkling lights and comes complete with luxurious faux fur blankets, snug rugs and hot water bottles, making it the perfect spot in town for drinking hot toddies and feasting with friends. Keeping spirits high, expect a selection of hot tipples alongside festive sharing platters. 

Jimmy's Lodge

Jimmy's Lodge is back, bigger and better than ever in their central London location bringing their version of the Alps to the snowy peaks of the Southbank. Until the 30. December, Jimmy and his team are creating the ultimate cosy escape from the winter cold. Whether it's an evening of private dining with close friends in their private (and heated) igloos (for up to 10 people, from £400 minimum spend), or tucking into a festive set menu (from £45 per person) of winter favourites on the first floor rooftop ski-chalet chic lodge restaurant - The Log Cabin Refuge - complete with fire pit and heated bar area serving up a fantastic array of hot toddies, feastive cocktails and dishes such as fondue and baked Mont Dor. Open daily, 11am to 11pm. 

The Alpine Club

Fulham’s Thameside beach has had a festive makeover...London’s most enchanted yuletide village returns, bigger and better than before, set with bookable insta-worthy igloos, fur-lined log cabins and hunting lodges and ski lift bubbles. Cosy up with friends with a mulled wine, hot gin or boozy hot chocolate in hand, and enjoy street food delights from The Lodge; think flameless cheesy fondue, gourmet burgers, spicy chicken wings, macaroni cheese and sourdough woodfired pizzas, whilst taking in the frosted mountain scenes and Alpine forest. The Alpine Club offers a variety of fun winter games such as shuffle board, beer pong, table tennis, arcade games, warming street food at the feasting tables and warming drinks from the Moose Bar. 

Skylight

Set against a backdrop of the city's iconic skyline and themed around an urban après skate bar, the three-story East London venue has been transformed into an autumnal haven with magical igloo forest. Skylight boasts cosy igloos and huts across the top two levels, transporting you to a wintry wonderland perched above the city - the perfect spot to sip on a mulled wine, roasted chestnuts in hand, and admire London's twinkling skyline with friends. Heated bars, draped in glimmering lights, are serving a delicious array of warming winter cocktails, alongside an extensive menu of beers and ciders, as well as warming mulled wine. Street food stalls are available on the lower level.   

The Mandrake

 

The private Cabanas - offering a sense of a tropical oasis are tucked away across the hotel with access to the hotel’s stunning outdoor Jurema terrace. Each of the ten Cabanas are available for reservation throughout the day and night and offer a table service menu available with South American inspired dishes from The Mandrake's Yopo restaurant and cocktails from the Waeska bar. Cabanas are each themed in line with the cultural activations of the hotel and include a TV screen to stream wellness workshops or artistic programmes happening within the hotel, or the guest’s own choice of music or entertainment.
