Vodka cocktails, flame cooked meats and a cosy, weatherproof long house: winter arrives at London’s slickest rooftop bar!
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 vodka cocktails and wholesome, Scandi-style food. A winter overhaul has given the terrace weatherproof roofing, heaters and sheepskin throws. Think traditional Viking belongings, animal skins, and even views of the fjords!
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.
