Once Upon A WigWam at the Queen Of Hoxton


Nights out at this time of year can sometimes feel like a struggle. When you're all toasty inside, the thought of braving the elements isn't too appealing, but luckily some clever bars are making venturing out for a drink a trek worth making. I'm going to be blogging about a few of my favourite new London pop ups over the next few weeks, starting today with Once Upon a WigWam at the Queen of Hoxton.

For those unfamiliar, every winter the east London hotspot transforms its rooftop space into a teepee-covered bar. This year, it's inspired by the Grimms' brothers Fairy Tales and created by the production maestros behind Bestival and Glastonbury - Queen of Hoxton's most ambitious concept yet.

Wander up the vine-covered stairs before stepping through a keyhole into an enchanted woodland. Inside the wigwam you'll find a scattering of candlelit tables around a (climbable!) treehouse. Outside you can warm yourself up toasting marshmallows by the open fires or enjoy the treats served up at their gingerbread house bar. There's a great selection of comforting eats and spiced hot toddies on offer - pictured are the Golden Apple, the Big Bad Buttered Rum and the Gardener's Grog (£6-7 each).

My photos above really don't do the place justice - it has to be seen to be believed! Once Upon a WigWam is running from now until the end of March 2016, so there's plenty of time to check it out. The bar is open Monday-Saturday from 4-6pm, but I'd definitely recommend going down as early as you can if you want to grab a table!
