We are getting very much into the Christmas spirit here at KPR and have collated our top 5 things to do over the festive season in this fantastic city.
Enjoy Music Magic & Drama with the Beaufort Bar’s brand new festive drinks at the Savoy.
The menu elevates the hotel bar experience through a refined signature offering, including grower Champagnes and sparkling wine, expertly prepared mixed drinks, and a well-chosen, in-depth whisky selection. The jet-black and burnished gold décor at the Beaufort Bar exudes the glamour of a time when such luminaries as Carol Gibbons, The Savoy Orpheans and George Gershwin graced the cabaret stage at The Savoy, which makes this perfect bar to enjoy December festivities in London.
Ice-skating at Skylight Rooftop, Tobacco Dock
Set against a backdrop of the city's iconic skyline, Skylight is continuing its unique seasonal offering into the crisper months. The rooftop transports guests to a wintry wonderland perched above the city with a glittering ice-rink as well as the new-for-2018 cosy igloos and huts. Heated après-skate bars, draped in glimmering lights, serve up a delicious array of warming winter cocktails, alongside an extensive menu of beers and ciders as well as delicious mulled wine. Families (and pooches too!) are welcome during the day at the weekends, making Skylight a must-do for the school holidays and winter weekends.
