Dalloway Terrace | Bloomsbury’s Winter Grove
Last Updated: 15th November 2019
If you’re going to create an Alpine pop up for the winter…
…basing it on a Swiss ski spot is a good place Gstaad.
Something which hasn’t escaped Dalloway Terrace, the seasonally changing, flower-laden terrace planted a stone’s throw away from the Bloomsbury Set’s old stomping ground.
Dalloway Terrace is part of its own set, The Bloomsbury Hotel, which also houses The Coral Room and The Bloomsbury Club Bar. And each season, its stunning wall of flowers and foliage undergoes a makeover to match. So now that winter’s creeping in, the place has been closed off to the elements, heated, and dressed floor to ceiling with boughs of snow-dusted firs, pine cones, twinkling fairy-lights and even little cowbells hidden amongst the foliage.
Of course, you can’t have a Swiss pop up and not have fondue. So they’re serving them up to share for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with both classic and truffled cheese options – as well as slices of charcuterie and bread for dipping. Even the afternoon tea hasn’t escaped – there’s Schnapps-marinated cucumber sandwiches, cheesecake fondues and chestnut & raspberry mont blanc tarts.
And to top it all off? A bar menu of mulled wine, hot chocolates, and steaming cocktails like the Chocolat Chaud with pear liqueur, white chocolate, crème de menthe and crème de cacao; or the Alpine Toddy with grappa and chamomile flower – both of which arrive with mini retro viewing goggles that’ll show you snowy scenes from Gstaad.
Just be warned – it’ll have you pining for the slopes.
NOTE: Dalloway Terrace is open all day, every day. You can find out more, and book, HERE.
