The cosiest winter pop-ups in London

Stay warm, happy and full at these cosy winter London pop-ups, only in town for the snowy season

Coppa Club Igloo

Winter in London is ace, but can be bloody chilly. It’s enough to make you want to stay indoors, near a radiator. But, thankfully, the city is also home to countless cosy pop-ups in the run up to Christmas. Urban beaches and London rooftops have been transformed for winter, while festive wonderlands appear complete with twinkling lights, snug blankets and steaming mugs of booze and hot chocolate to warm your bones. Oh, and did we mention London has gone wild for igloos this year? Grab a woolly jumper and embrace all things toasty, with these wonderfully wintery pop-ups.

For a heated wigwam

The Queen of Hoxton’s rooftop spot is channelling belle époque Paris for its winter season with an alternative Moulin Rouge-inspired experience complete with a lit-up red windmill. Swing by the absinthe bar for a glass of the green fairy before loading up on cheese and wine in a wigwam. C'est parfait!

For dinner in a dome

Such is our appetite for warm places to sit that last year London lost its collective shit over Coppa Club’s PVC riverside igloos. This year they are back and they’re as cosy as ever, with snug sheepskin blankets, festive snacks and breeze-free views of the city skyline. The eight-person snuggeries are fully booked into the new year, but daily walk-ins for chilly Londoners are available. See you in the queue.

For rooftop feasts

The buzzy urban garden in west London is open again for the snowy season. We know what you’re thinking: brrrr!, but it’ll be heated and fully enclosed for the winter months, with a clear roof so you can see the sky without the plummeting temperatures. Patty & Bun, Canard, MAM and Yucatan and more are on the winter menu, alongside hot and festive cocktails to be sipped among the winter greenery and glowing lights.

Venue says Hidden alfresco garden and rooftop: drinking/dining in the heart of London, with 850 seats, seven day-beds, four restaurants and two bars.
