A selection of our favourite cosy pub fires, toasty rooftop fire pits and crackling chimneas in and around Shoreditch. The perfect places to enjoy a drink with friends this winter.
Queen of Hoxton
The Queen of Hoxton has turned their rooftop into a Morrocan Medina for the winter months. Moroccan spices and Shisha scents permeate the night air as you sit around crackling chimnea fireplaces and enjoy a Spiced Hot Buttered Rum or Shimmering Gold Pomegranate Bellini. There’s even a giant Moroccan lamp you can sit inside!
