Named after Virginia Woolf’s Mrs Dalloway, Dalloway Terrace is a quintessentially English space designed to evoke the literary ambience of 20th century Bloomsbury – with a healthy dose of 21st century cosmopolitan living. This winter, they’re transforming the space into a charming (heated) winter wonderland, complete with hot chocolate cocktails and cheese fondues; they’ve really captured that alpine spirit.
Belgravia florists Wild at Heart have carpeted the venue in snow-covered Narnia-like foliage, while the floors have gained sheep skin rugs. To add to the warmth, you’ll be given hot water bottles as well as complimentary shots of Génépi liqueur, which, for those of you who don’t know, is similar to absinthe. Cosy.
Fondues will be available in both sweet and savoury forms. The sweet being white chocolate with fruit for dipping, whilst the savoury offers a selection of sourdough and pickled root vegetables with a choice of 3 cheeses. The indulgence doesn’t stop there. Renowned chocolatier Maison Pierre Marcolini has created a hot chocolate cocktail menu with drinks such as ‘Raisin the Bar’ – made with spiced rum, port and hot chocolate. There’ll also be a chocolate afterrnoon tea featuring dishes such as a chocolate and Christmas pudding dome and a pecan and salted caramel chocolate slice.
The all-day dining menu has also seen a wintry transformation too thanks to Head Chef Peter Del Campo who will be serving up dishes such as East Sussex game pie with sweet potato and Roquefort and Jerusalem artichoke soup with black truffle – elasticated trousers advised.
To top this all off, every Saturday will see the screening of classic festive films out on the terrace. You’ll be able to order food and cocktails inspired by the film that is being shown. A true winter wonderland!
Dalloway Terrace’s winter incarnation launches 8th November
