Eight London openings you might have missed
After a couple of years of cancelled plans (no one mention Covid) 2022 was certainly a year of new...
This festive season, journey up into the clouds and reach dizzy new heights with Sky Garden's 'Wild & Whimsical Wonderland' in partnership with Moët & Chandon.
From 5th December, Sky Pod, located 35 levels above The City, and City Garden Bar on level 36, will be transformed into a vibrant and vivacious tropical-inspired paradise, providing the perfect escape from the winter chill. Classic Christmas golds, reds and greens will be contrasted with multi-coloured foliage, flowers and leafy palms, alongside glittering Moët & Chandon baubles, and cosy blankets and cushions.
Expect a menu of Moët & Chandon cocktails alongside champagne by the glass, as well as a calendar of Moët music nights throughout December, with ALR Music playing all your favourite seasonal tunes.
Entry tickets are priced from £18 per person and include all-night access to the gardens, winter bars, and a glass of champagne on arrival, whilst tickets for the festive music nights start from £35 per person. To book, please visit Design My Night.
