As much as we all love a spot of Christmas shopping, eventually it’s nice to escape a sea of red and green and hide out somewhere much calmer.
Enter: The St-Germain Winter Bloom Pop Up bar. Completely covered in beautiful flowers, it’s a floral hideaway to enjoy with friends and escape the crowds outside during the festive period. Better yet, it’s free to enter!
You might have typically associated flowers with summertime but take a trip to Floral Street (how appropriate?!) in Covent Garden this month and you’ll realise that sunshine and blue skies aren’t necessary after all. From November 22 to December 22 head to the St-Germain Winter Bloom Pop Up for some delicious drinks, wintery workshops and creative crafting.
Over the course of the month, this flower-filled bar will offer a range of delightfully wintery cocktails to sip on, including a festive twist on the classic St-Germain Spritz – think intense floral, elderflower notes combined with citrusy elements and a hint of passion fruit. On the menu you’ll also find traditional, Christmassy picks like cosy mulled Cidre Chaud and the sweet, spiced Hiver.
And inside this flower-festooned (and highly Instagrammable) spot you’ll find plenty of French joie de vivre – just what you need during the run up to Christmas! The masterclasses will make for a fabulously festive group activity or the perfect gift for the friend who already has everything.
During these hands-on workshops, learn how to make effortlessly chic cocktails and snacks for the perfect French soirée and get to grips with creating stand out Christmas bouquets, wreaths and flower crowns to wow guests this holiday season. You’ll also find an array of homemade decorations and luxury stocking fillers at the Christmas Flower Boutique with a floral colour palate that’ll make you want to buy one of everything.
The list of experts you’ll find sharing their knowledge during the workshops includes cook and food writer Anna Barnett, whimsical florist Emily Baylis of June in March and cocktail expert Camille Vidal – aka Madame St-Germain.
The ST-GERMAIN® Winter Bloom pop up will take place at 33 Floral Street, Covent Garden from Thursday 22nd November to Saturday 22nd December. Timings: 12pm – 9:30pm, Wednesday – Sunday. 18+ only. Please drink responsibly. For more information, click here.
