Asthe cold nights start to draw in, more winter themed pop ups start to appear around town. One of the more glamorous is the Elit Freeze bar which is popping up in Harvey Nichols’ fifth floor bar, bringing a touch of the Alpines to Knightsbridge.
It promises to have all the style of a fancy ski resort with a log cabin feel and vodka cocktails – think après ski without having to climb a mountain and throw yourself down it attached to a pair of planks. Instead, it’s luxury all the way with snug blankets, faux sheepskin rugs and fake deer head trophies.
Elit, the sponsor of the event, is part of the Stolichnaya vodka brand, who are launching two new flavours at the pop up. Stoli Hot and Stoli Sticki will be available to try, as well as vodka ice pops, and a whole range of exciting cocktails, such as the Stoli Jalabarbinger – a mix of Stoli hot, rhubarb and ginger.
Tapas dishes are also available specifically designed to match the cocktails and include the likes of hot tiger prawns, lamb kofta and jalapeño poppers. The bar will be open throughout November and December right up until New Year’s Eve. Booking is advised.
