The cosiest winter pop-ups in London

Stay toasty and content at these cosy winter London pop-ups

By Ellie Walker-Arnott, Charley Ross and Rosie Hewitson

Looking for the best place to enjoy a chilly evening in London this Christmas? The city is known for its seasonal pop-ups, and even in this horrible, cursed year, there are still plenty of socially-distanced options to choose from. In the run-up to Christmas, London goes mad for the winter snugs, complete with hot chocolates, steaming wines and ciders, twinkling lights and...novelty festive face masks, probably. Here's our round-up of the best hideaways, markets and quirky festive experiences, to bring some normality back to this weird, weird winter.

For dinner in a dome

Forget perspex screens. What better way to socially distance than in your very own igloo? The Coppa Club’s riverside igloos are back for another year of cosiness, snug sheepskin blankets, festive snacks and stunning views of the London skyline. Sip on champagne cocktails and sample dishes from an exclusive menu featuring sashimi-grade tuna tartare, whole lemon sole or porterhouse steak, while surrounded by twinkling city lights. Now that’s our kind of support bubble.

Bookings for December and January will open at 11am on November 25. Visit the website at for details.

News Drinking

For an urban alpine getaway

Is Lapland in the travel corridor? Who cares, when this alpine paradise is on your doorstep. Warm-up with mulled wine in a heated chalet, sip prosecco on a ski lift or feast on fondue in your own private igloo at this pop-up ski club in Fulham. Book on a Saturday afternoon for all you can drink prosecco and pizza, or enjoy a bottomless alpine brunch on Sundays.
