With the usual celebrations at Halloween and Guy Fawkes night looking to be a little more subdues this year, the Christmas season is starting earlier than ever. And let's be honest, we're going to need a lot of cheer this year.
First up is 34 who have already brought back their Miracle at 34 makeover in a team-up with Nyetimer. Essentially this means that every single inch of the restaurant is covered in some kind of Christmas decoration. There are apparently 14,000 decorations overall - and yes, it will put your own display to shame, even if you haven't even got around to dreaming it up yet. The baubles are all up now, so if you feel the need for some early Christmas spirit, now's the time to head to 34.
The 34 Mayfair Miracle at 34 installation is live now. Follow them on Instagram @34mayfair.
Next up is the Miracle pop-up bar, appearing at the Henrietta Hotel in Covent Garden for the third year running, but you'll have to wait until mid-November for this one. As before, their mezzanine will be decked out in Christmas gear alongside a cocktail menu that's about as Christmassy as it gets. New cocktails include Fruitcake Flip (Brandy, Jamaican Overproof Rum, Amaretto, Fruitcake, Cherry Bitters, Whole Egg) and Jolly Koala (Gin, Vermouth, Pine-Cardamom-Sage Cordial) with small plates from Italian Supper Club to go with.
The Miracle pop-up bar returns to the Henrietta Hotel in Covent Garden on 16 November. Follow them on Instagram @henriettahotel.
And finally, there's Miracle on Kingdom Street, which sees Pergola in Paddington get a winter makeover - and given its sem-alfresco nature, this will be a very handy one if the restrictions stay as-is. It'll be made over into a winter wonderland forest, have a Bavarian-style bar and plenty of wintery food, from boozy cheese fondue to roasted chestnuts, smores, raclette and Christmas Burgers.
Miracle on Kingdom Street will be at Paddington Pergola on 21 November. Follow them on Instagram @pergolalondon.
