Christmas Cocktails in SW3

The Ivy Chelsea Garden, 197 Kings Road SW3 5EQ

You never know who or what you will see on the Kings Road. Just as well really because this winter expect Polar bears. Polar bears wearing Fair isle sweater and bobble hats. Yes, all the way from the Arctic they are coming out of hibernation and spending Christmas in Chelsea. At The Ivy Chelsea Garden to be more precise. The perfect afternoon into evening date venue. Their seasonal decorations never disappoint, neither do their innovative libations. Simply take a gorgeous companion, say hello to the Polar bears and enjoy getting to each other over a few Christmas cocktails. Or ice breakers as the Polar bears would say.

Naughty – Gin-gle Bells Fizz: 16 Monkey 47 Gin, passion fruit, lime, cranberry and prosecco topped off with cotton candy snow balls

Nice – Festive Citrus Sparkler: (Non-alcoholic) 10 Everleaf Forest, blood orange, passion fruit and soda water

All the lights are shining so brightly everywhere, mostly on Oxford Street

The Brasserie of Light, 400 Oxford Street W1A 1AB

Oxford Street in December. However high up above the crowds of Christmas shoppers on par with the twinkly lights is the aptly named Brasserie of Light. A large, bright and altogether spectacular dining room and bar tucked inside Selfridges. You and a hot date can flee the maddening crowds for a cosy cocktail or too. Their extensive menu includes all your usual classics as well as some fabulously creative Christmas cocktails. If you’re not too much of a Scrooge then there is also all the gifts a girl could dream right there. Selfridges is a London institution at Christmas. If your beautiful date is on the nice list then there is always the Wonder Room.

Naughty – Frostbite Fizz: Johnny Walker Blue Label, sugar, bitters, actual gold and Veuve Cliquot champagne

Nice – Haute Cocoa: (non alcoholic) oat milk, cream, vanilla and white chocolate

St Nicholas visits St James for a Christmas drink

St James Bar, Sofitel London St James, 6 Waterloo Place SW1Y 4AN

I always feel like the St James bar is a hidden treasure. A discrete, warm and inviting snug of a bar. The bar staff are friendly, professional and passionate about cocktails. No fuss, no neon lights or instagram props. If you are more of a conservative, traditional soul and want to have a proper conversation over some drinks then this is the bar for you. This sophisticated, grown up Christmas grotto provides the perfect escape. A place where you and a beautiful companion can seek seasonal solace. Additionally this is the type of place where you can wile away the afternoon getting to know one another. Fancy another? Maybe The Sherpa? This fully loaded cocktail will knock your socks (you received last Christmas) clean off.

Naughty – The Sherpa: Corte Vetusto Espadín Mezcal, Hennessy VS Cognac, Cynar, Leonor palo cortado sherry, Nectar PX sherry, mountain bitters and palo santo

Nice – Refreshed: (non alcoholic) Everleaf Marine, Franklin & Sons soda and lemon tonic water with blue spirulina
