Because there’s no feeling more satisfying than being toasty warm while it’s nippy outside…
1. Piste Bar, Archer Street
This fun Soho bar, famed for its waiting staff who spontaneously break into song, has opened its pop-up winter themed bar, Piste. The homely floorboards, wooden barrels and appealing shabby look gives it a rustic vibe, while the draped furs and fluffy seating create an extremely cosy place for a drink.

2. Skye Halla at Queen of Hoxton
Royalty of the winter pop-ups, Queen of Hoxton have outdone themselves on the rooftop this year. The beautiful wigwam has returned and, this time, they’ve gone for a Viking theme. The inside of the tent is decorated with Nordic style shields and animal furs. The large outside bar, which is complete with shelter and heating, is serving up a quite the feast, alongside warming cocktails and hot mead.

3. Shochu Bar at ROKA Charlotte Street
We told you last month about ROKA’s gorgeous autumnal maple tree installation . The Shochu bar, which lies beneath ROKA’s restaurant on Charlotte Street, is a wonderful place to hide yourself away from the cold, sip on some warming sake or whisky cocktails and munch on some divine sushi. The maple tree installation will be up until some point in December, so catch a glimpse of it while you can.

5. Igloos at Coppa Club
We told you that these snow-globe like igloos appeared next to the Thames earlier this month. Not only do they make a rather impressive riverside feature, but they’re also stocked up with extra cosy perks inside. Complete with heaters, fluffy blankets and rugs – bag yourself one of these igloos and you’ll be the envy of all of the chilly people passing by. Coppa Club have been overwhelmed with bookings, so will no longer be taking any in advance. However they will be keeping some igloos free every day for walk-ins, running on a first-come, first-served basis.
