Now that we're fully in the festive season, if you're looking for something a little different for a Christmas treat or are after a glamorous spot for winter alfresco then Harvey Nichols reckon they've got just the thing for you.
Meeting friends for a Christmas catch up or want to make the most of a day in town doing Christmas shopping? Then how about booking the Christmas afternoon tea at Harvey Nichols for an alternative take on festive dining.
Head to the Fifth Floor Cafe at the Knightbridge store this month where they'll be serving up a selection of seasonal savoury sandwiches including roast turkey and cranberry sauce, alongside festive sweet bites such as Amaretto chocolate tart and classic mince pies.
Obviously, you couldn't have afternoon tea with the classic scones, Cornish clotted cream and jam along with your pot of tea or Illy coffee. And you can add some extra Christmas cheer by adding a glass of Harvey Nichols Champagne.
The Christmas afternoon tea is £35 per person or £45 with a glass of Harvey Nichols Champagne.
From the rooftops of Knightsbridge to riverside views across to St Paul's - Harvey Nichols' dining options are perfect for anyone preferring to dine outside this festive season. Both feature heaters and cosy blankets - making them the perfect spots for alfresco dining or drinking.
A magical forest in SW1
Up on the Fifth Floor Terrace at Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge they've joined forces with the Legends Untold 2021 Special Releases Whisky Collection for a winter terrace with a difference. To celebrate the release of the eight whiskies the terrace has been transformed into a magical forest, with a specially created cocktail list to bring each of the legends to life.
From Campfire Tale made with Talisker 10-year-old, oat milk, golden syrup, hot chocolate and toasted marshmallow to The Moonlit Beast featuring Mortlach 16-year-old, golden syrup, Angostura bitters and orange bitters, there's a cocktail for everyone.
Cityscape views over the Thames
The Oxo Tower Brasserie and Restaurant is marking its 25th birthday this year with a celebration of together moments. They've also given their outside spaces a very festive makeover with Christmas trees lining the terraces. Enjoy festive menus, Christmas cocktails and more as you spend time with friends, colleagues and family taking in the amazing views out over London.
On the party menus, you'll find classic Christmas dishes like Slow-cooked turkey breast with porchetta leg and fondant potato alongside new takes like Clementine and cardamom cheesecake with Tonka ice cream - perfect for get-togethers.
