Tree House Terrace 04

Skylounge, the stylish rooftop bar atop the DoubleTree Hilton at Tower Hill, is pleased to announce the launch of its new winter terrace, ‘The Tree House at Skylounge’ - a mystical, enchanted woodland, set amongst the rooftops of the City, where rum cocktails and champagne flow freely.

Tree House Terrace 11

Launching on 16th November, The Tree House at Skylounge will offer guests a unique experience to escape from the rush of the City to a cosy, winter wonderland. Woodland branches embellished with lights will create an intimate, sheltered space, amplifying the magical atmosphere inside.

Up in The Tree House at Skylounge, guests can huddle over hot apple cider or opt for a cocktail from a bespoke menu created using Chairman’s Reserve Rum and Champagne Lanson. Choose from a selection of specially created cocktails including a Hot & Cold Spiced Toddy (featuring Chairman’s Reserve Spiced Rum, secret spices and hot apple cider - toped with a mountain of whipped cream), Plum & Rum Old Fashioned (a festive version of an old classic, with Chairman’s Reserve Rum, homemade plum purée and plum bitters), Treehouse Punch (Chairman’s Reserve Rum, fresh Thyme Tea and Lemon Juice, topped up with Rekorderlig Apple Cider and delicious fruits).


Accompanying the drinks is a warming winter food menu with highlights including succulent Treetop Burger Squares, decadent Truffle Mac & Cheese and moreish Spicy Chicken Nuggets with Bourbon Dip - all to be enjoyed whilst watching the City light up, as the long winter nights draw in.


Open Wednesday to Saturday, 5:00pm until late, The Tree House at Skylounge combines the mystic nature of a winter woodland with the cosy atmosphere of a tree house. Get lost beneath the dazzling canopy, whilst admiring the views of Tower Bridge, The Shard and The Gherkin.

Lavenham - Apres Ski.001 copy

These Lavenham jackets for AW14 will make you feel like you are on the slopes even if you're just sipping hot chocolate at Selfridges winter Chalet.

Pastel pink and blue and perfectly 'on trend' these beauties will see you through the cold days ahead.

Taking inspiration from the AW14 catwalks and the trend for sugary pastels and bold brights, each jacket has a contrasting corduroy chest panel in eye - catching colourways and popper fastenings.

You can stick these on your Christmas list as they are available now - prices range between £145-£195.


If you want to warm your belly with some of the best things about winter then this is the pop up to get to. Jimmy Garcia's Alpine Winter Food and Hot Cocktail pop up is the stuff of dreams and if you don't believe us then try a backed Alaska hot cocktail on for size and report back.

Put together in three days and a total labour of love your belly will thank you for taking it here. With savouries to die for and an ice cream bar offering all you could ever want as toppings we can't quite praise this pop up enough.


Jimmy Garcia has already had 4 month sell out pop up run this summer, so it's not just us who are impressed. This Alpine Winter pop up is his most ambitious project yet however running for three months after opening on the 25th October.

Oh yeah - the winter weather's here and that means we can start to concentrate on our winter warmer clobber!

Wether you are out and about or cosied up at home you'll want one of these in your wardrobe arsenal this year.

The collection above can be found at Glamourous.com. Slouch them down with ripped jeans and trainers or glam them up with leather skirts and heals - choice is yours but either way you'll be warm as toasted marshmallows.
