Le Chalet

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!

At the same time, an intimate, romantic meal is also out of the question as you can overhear almost every conversation around you! eat_wear_wander_burgereat_wear_wander_burger2For 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.eat_wear_wander_cocktaileat_wear_wander_eatingeat_wear_wander_friesSides 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! eat_wear_wander_vegetableseat_wear_wander_portraiteat_wear_wander_lights2eat_wear_wander_entrance

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!eat_wear_wander_display eat_wear_wander_selfridgesThe best part about my evening? Seeing Selfridges all decked out for Christmas. I mean, who doesn’t love the annual Christmas displays? eat_wear_wander_display2Wearing: Dress – Topshop, Coat – ASOS, Tights – Primark, Boots – French Connection, Scarf – Shop Bop, Bag – Tory Burch

Have you seen these yet?

  • I love the decor! I’ve never been to England, so I’m not quite sure what a Selfridge is even though I’ve heard it being mentioned before. But if the decor is that pretty, it’s now on my list for when I go :3

    • Selfridges is a luxury department store (like Bloomingdales in the US) and this restaurant is a pop-up for the winter season on their rooftop. They always have stuff going on, e.g. open bar during summer. Definitely visit it if you’re ever in London x

  • The food looks so good! If one day I travel to London, I definitely will try it out there xD
