As we approach the colder months, cosy bars and pop-ups tend to start appearing left, right and centre. But we’re not complaining, because winter generally equates to hot toddies and melted cheese. And with the weather officially (sort of?) cooling down, we’re more than ready to whip out those trusty winter coats and welcome our favourite Christmas traditions and activities back in 2022, including Jimmy’s Winter Lodge!
That’s right, Jimmy’s Winter Lodge has returned with its impressive, Thames-side Alpine pop-up, including those infamous (or rather, Insta-famous), magical snow globes. This year, they’ve branded it ‘Fire and Fromage‘ (because, you know, there’s going to be a lot of fromage…). Groups of up to 10 people can take refuge in the cosy, heated igloos, while enjoying a special three-course winter sample menu. Tuck into Alpine fondue, nibble on mixed charcuterie boards, and try their mighty hot stone-cooked steak. Due to high demand, groups must book their private globes in advance.
There’s also a heated Chalet Alpine Bar serving up winter warmers (boozy hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows!), and a downstairs takeaway Lodge Grill, where guests can order festive street food rather than having a sit-down meal. If past years are anything to go by, the tasty line-up there could include delicious treats like the Raclette Burger, wild boar hot dogs, and much more.
The winter lodge is the perfect spot for Christmas get togethers and festive outings, whether you settle down for a meal or just grab a hot drink at the bar after a stroll along the South Bank Winter Market‘s food stalls.
Find Jimmy’s Winter Lodge along the South Bank from November 5 to January 8, 2023. Find more info and book your snow globe right here.
