Skylodge winter pop-up will bring out the lumberjack in Londoners

Skylodge Platterform 2013

This winter, pop-up creatives Platterform are launching Skylodge – a temporary rooftop lodge serving warming cocktails and festive food, and the first in a series of pop-ups planned for the coming year.

Located in Hackney’s The Hothouse – which also plays host to summertime haunt Coppa during the warmer months – the Skylodge chalet will offer a lumberjack-style diner-cum-drinking hole with heated booths, cosy sofas, a roaring fireplace and a timber bar.

On the menu, guests can expect hearty ‘lumber-snacks’ including smoky maple baby-back ribs, mamma’s pulled pork, plus toast-your-own Rocky Mountain marshmallows for dessert. As for cocktails, expect innovative hot toddies including buttered rum, and winter-themed blends such as pine-infused martinis. After the meal, sit down to ‘campfire sessions’ ranging from live acoustic performances from upcoming musical talent to experiential film nights and tongue-in-cheek lumberjack-themed games.

Skylodge opens its doors on Thursday 28 November at 6.30pm. For more information about Skylodge, or to check out the other events Platterform has planned for 2014, visit its website.
