WigWamBam Opening – Queen of Hoxton
Basically it’s a wigwam on the roof over looking East London. The opening featured a fabulous, sizzling fire pit and drinks all round showing off the new menu.
Including a range of divine hot drinks including: mulled pumpkin spiced cider, ‘Cheeky Chocolate Monkey’ (hot chocolate with whiskey) and hot buttered rum. Not to mention a delightful hot gin punch. And yes, we sampled all of them plus a plateful of rustic food. “That red cabbage has a kick!”
The beautiful surroundings, fire pits, marshmallows and fairy lights are a charming combination, beautiful and v trendy (topknots EVERYWHERE) but the practicality of it is a little different.
The delicious drinks were a touch cloying and the fire pits blinding, not to mention that today my coat smells like I’ve been sleeping in a park next to a bin fire.
This is a great option to begin a night out or to have a chilled few drinks, maybe even a date – the views over the city romantic.
Whatever you do, DO NOT wear anything you don’t want to smell like smoke.
