Winter pop-ups have been all the rage in London-town this season! And perched on the rooftop of Selfridges, the most fashionable of them all is Le Chalet.
Le Chalet is a cozy, twinkly, festive establishment resembling a winter chalet in the French alps. It comes complete with blankets to wrap yourself with, a buzzing atmosphere and warming cocktails. It even opens up to an outside area at the back with stunning views of London (which you can brave if you wish to in this extreme cold!).
I headed there on a Friday night and it was absolutely packed with the most fashionable crowd around. This did mean waiting for quite some time to get served!
They offer a great variety of festive cocktails and to beat the winter blues, we went for some Mulled Wine and an Old Fashioned
The space overall is quite small and feels rather cramped so it’s not great if you come in a big group. At the same time, an intimate, romantic meal is also out of the question as you can overhear almost every conversation around you! For our main meal, we went for the Le Chalet Burger which came with a club sauce. Overall, definitely not the best burger I’ve tasted and not worth the price! We also tried the Pork Roast which unfortunately isn’t worth a mention! The meat was bland and tasteless and the overall dish was anything but exciting.Sides included Seasoned Chips and Roasted Roots, Honey & Thyme. The chips were probably the best part of my entire meal and let’s face it, you really can’t go wrong with deep friend potato!
Le Chalet does have a great atmosphere and seems like THE place to be on a Friday night. I’d recommend going there for drinks with friends rather than a sit down dinner as the menu isn’t all that impressive in my opinion! The best part about my evening? Seeing Selfridges all decked out for Christmas. I mean, who doesn’t love the annual Christmas displays?
