A mainstay of London’s festive season is the annual makeover that breathes new Christmassy life into the rooftop party destination, Pergola Paddington. They take the festive season so seriously that they fill the space with hundreds of Christmas trees every year. And for 2023, they’re showing no signs of slowing down, with visitors now treated to a glorious new festive display. Named ‘Deck the Halls’, this winter haven is filled with street food, seasonal cocktails, and toasty welcomes, and it’s seriously dreamy!
The ‘Deck The Halls’ transformation launched earlier this month and will be sticking around until the end of December. That means there’s plenty of time to get down and explore the two floors of festive offerings.
Upstairs there’s the Winter Forest – with hundreds of real Christmas trees and even a life-sized Polar Express train. Head downstairs and you’ll find the Alpine Hall with plenty of (you guessed it) over-the-top Alpine decor.
They’ve got a whole host of warming winter foods and drinks to choose from as you settle in amongst the festive furnishings. We’re talking mulled wine, hot toddies, boozy hot chocolates, ice-cold beer, and spiced cider, as well as gooey fondue, bratwurst rolls, pigs in blankets, and more.
Now that the Christmas lights are up, Pergola Paddington will welcome winter revellers with live music and DJing late into the night every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night. But they’re also throwing all sorts of festive events while they’re at it. Head on over and you could enjoy winter bottomless brunches, Christmas singalongs, film screenings, gospel choir performances, and more.
It’s all, quite simply, the perfect excuse to throw the bumper Christmas season we all thoroughly deserve…
And since there’s space for up to 750 guests, you’re guaranteed to get everyone in for an unforgettable Christmas party. Head to their website to make a booking for a brilliantly festive night out.
