Where to go on a date in London this Christmas

Christmas isn’t Christmas unless it snows, and this winter the iconic Long Bar at Sanderson will be bringing Londoners the White Christmas they’ve been hoping for. From Monday 11 December until Christmas Eve, the bar will be transformed into a winter alpine forest, complete with dangling birches, leaf covered floors, and falling snow.

The Let it Snow bar will see the outside heading in, as festive shoppers can escape the crowds of neighbouring Oxford Street to enter a true winter wonderland. Exclusive to the Christmas pop-up, the menu has been curated with official drinks sponsor Bombay Sapphire Gin and Star of Bombay gin, and consists of delicious bar snacks and four luxurious cocktails including the signature French 75 (£14), a mix of Star of Bombay Gin, Champagne, lemon juice, a sweet sugar syrup and citrus garnish.
