Skate for free at Waterloo’s rooftop bar

New to the London’s winter ice-skating club, Bar Elba stands out by offering free ice rink experience until the beginning of December. This little winter haven is totally free to all the venue guests based on a first-come, first-served basis but the priority will be given to those with a table or a party booking. 

Inspired by infamous Napoleon’s exile to the Mediterranean island of Elba, the rooftop bar with 600 covers capacity follows the tropical party theme. By turning into a vibrant winter wonderland, it is likely to attract a huge crowd of adventure-thirsty Londoners every day, so getting there early seems like a good idea. Plus, they also have a happy hour with two for one cocktails during 4-6 pm and 9-11 pm on Sunday to Wednesday and 4-6 pm Thursday to Saturday! 

The drinks menu is under transformation to top up your evening enjoying London’s skyline on a glide. Hot blood orange gin cocktails, traditional mulled wine mugs, a variety of celebration packages and drinks bundles for you and your friends will be ready to spread the festive feeling round. If you are still looking for a Christmas party place, don’t wait for too long – half of December slots are already booked out! 

If you are not into skating too much, the bar has added a few optional extras to sparkle up the place. A photo booth, a candy cart, multiple ice luges to chill the drinks to perfection and a magician: all to promise you a marvellous night for a Christmas celebration.
