From 25th November Skylounge in EC3 will be hosting the Valhalla VodkacBar on its outdoor rooftop terrace, with outdoor heaters, sheepskin throws, mulled wine, and of course vodka to keep you warm. Open from 4.30pm, West - Sunday
"Skylounge, the stunning rooftop bar atop the DoubleTree Hilton in Tower Hill, has announced the arrival of Valhalla Vodka Bar, a cosy, winter residency on the outdoor terrace, which overlooks Tower Bridge, The Shard and The Gherkin.
Launching on 25th November, the Valhalla Vodka Bar will offer city dwellers and pilgrimaging guests alike a relaxing atmosphere, vodka cocktails and wholesome, Scandi-style food. A winter overhaul has given the stunning terrace weatherproof roofing, heaters and sheepskin throws. Traditional Viking belongings, animal skins, and even views of the fjords will further amplify the theme, along with the name which directly translates in to 'heaven' in Viking tongue. For those still feeling the chill, warming mugs of mulled wine will be just the ticket, or perhaps a glass of hot apple cider served in an urn. Elsewhere, bespoke winter cocktails (with authentic Viking names!) have been developed by Snow Queen Vodka, a premium organic vodka, which are sure to warm you as you guzzle. Choose between Glapsvidr (a fruity serve with Aperol, passion fruit puree and apple juice), Ginnarr (the zingy one, with orgeat, lime juice, passion fruit and pineapple juice), or Hrafnass (a floral creation with lavender syrup, blueberry syrup, lime, apple juice and soda).
Wholeheartedly embracing the Vikings’ way of doing things and the ‘hunter gatherer’ ethos, Valhalla Vodka Bar food offerings will be hearty, wholesome and meat-heavy. Customers can expect marinated meats, hunks of artisan bread and cheeses sourced from Scandinavia.
Open Wednesday to Sunday, 4:30pm until late, Valhalla Vodka Bar is the perfect spot for after-work drinks, a quiet one, or lazy weekends with friends. It is also available for private events and Christmas parties with a difference (minimum spend required). Valhalla Vodka Bar will run through to February, alongside the Peroni Bar, which is situated on the front facing terrace."
