The Christmas Cart Returns
Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without mulled wine and mince pies!

Miracle at Henrietta
The Henrietta is bringing the festively famous Miracle pop-up bar phenomenon to London for the very first time. The Christmas-themed pop-up bar, renowned across America for its creative cocktails garnished with a side of kitsch, will launch on the hotel’s mezzanine from Black Friday, 23rd November until 23rd December.
Miracle at Henrietta will provide the perfect pitstop for a cocktail, and a chance to escape the inevitable Christmas craziness that consumes the capital. Guests are transported back in time to Christmas past, with a nostalgic take on festive décor. Reminiscent of a chalet living room on Christmas Eve, stockings will be hung, fairy lights strung, and the Christmas tree will take centre stage.
St-Germain Winter Bloom Pop Up
Fittingly located on Covent Garden's Floral Street, St-Germain's Winter Bloom Pop-Up celebrates St-Germain’s deep connection with flowers and elegant occasions, offering you a place where you can Christmas à la française through a refreshing new take on festive cocktails, decorations and gifts.
The pop-up will feature a Christmas Flower Boutique that proves beautiful blooms aren’t just for summer, as well as a series of craft workshops led by personalities including chef influencer Anna Barnett, whimsical florist Emily Baylis of June in March and cocktail expert Camille Vidal – aka Madame St-Germain. Masterclass tickets cost £10 per person (including booking fee) and can be purchased here.

Somebody has been naughty and moved Miss Trunchbull's chair to Central Avenue for the duration of the Christmas season! Do you dare to sit in the Trunchbull's chair?
