2015 Best Winter Pop Ups

Once Upon A Wigwam, The Queen of Hoxton

Our favourite winter pop-up is a tipi located in the heart of Shoreditch, better known as The Queen of Hoxton’s, Once Upon A Wigwam. The tipi styled rooftop is now a celebrated and integral part of the Shoreditch skyline and is enjoyed by many during the winter periods, especially by those who love nothing more than to snuggle up next to the fire and share good times with their loved ones. Guests are invited to the “Once Upon A Wigwam” experience, until the end of March, giving the public plenty of time to come and visit and learn about the enchanted Wigwam in the middle of East London where the stories of Grimms’ are brought to life.

Le Chalet at Selfridges

After packing up its summer roof pop-up, Q-Grill is back and looking slightly different. They’ve packed away their BBQ hotspot and transformed the rooftop space into a traditional ski chalet, featuring a log cabin and an exclusive hot chocolate cocktail bar, perfect for this chilly winter season.

The menu for this winter pop up has been created by Q-Grill; carefully made, Q-Grill thought of dishes to be served to guests to reflect the season. Examples of the dishes are: Spit roasted suckling pig with apple and black pudding fritters and a festive eggnog snow egg as one of the desserts to choose from. There’s something to suit anyone’s mood at Le Chalet.
