Yule Smack Cocktails at the Nordic Yulefest
Pop-ups are hardly few and far between these days, but that doesn’t mean they can’t still stand out from the rest. Our pick of the bunch this festive season has got to be the Nordic Yulefest. Head to the Disco Room and drink Yule smack, Nutty Sours and Sandy Claws cocktails while you play all sorts of festive games such as the Woodland Wheel of Fortune or indulge in a five course Nordic banquet in the Feasting Hall. The abundance of birch trees, antlers and cosy corners decked with sheepskin makes it feel like a fairytale world. It’s not to be missed.
To the Festive Season with our Christmas Cocktails
Everyone loves making the most of the Christmas season by indulging more than ever and making the most of all those treats, such as mince pies and mulled wine, which for some reason can only be enjoyed for a 12th of the year. At D&M we love all this as much as the next person but we’ve added a bit of sparkle with our 3 Christmas cocktails. We’ve got our Christmas twist on the classic cosmo, a gingerbread Bellini and ‘Tis the Season that combines Frangelico, Baileys and Amaretto with crème de cacao, mint, hazelnut milk and cream.
Spectacular Performances in Devonshire Square
Devonshire Square is pulling out all the stops for its Christmas festival this year. From the moment the Christmas lights turn on, on 1st December until the festival ends on the 22nd they’ve got a whole host of treats in store. From a concert by Zalon Thomson, Amy Winehouse’s backing singer, at 6pm on 15th December or five real penguins coming to the square on 13th December they’ve got it all! See the full line up of details here.
All things Christmas in Leicester Square
It’s impossible to believe it’s taken until 2016 for Leicester Square to become one of the destination spots at Christmas, but it has and they’ve pulled it all out of the bag. With everything from a traditional Christmas market to a velvet-draped Belgian spiegeltent plonged right in the middle of the square there is nothing festive you won’t find here and it’s conveniently located bang in the middle of London. Entry is free but certain events such as Santa’s Grotto and La Soiree are ticketed. See all the fun to be had right here.
