This Christmas, Skylight is expanding beyond the rooftop and taking over Tobacco Dock. We’re bringing our award-winning service, famous igloos and ice rink to the iconic Quayside - with full Covid-secure protocols in place. Leave 2020 outside the gates and enter a cosy, twinkly world of wintery festive fun.
Celebrate the season in your very own ice palace (well, igloo). With 360° vistas of the distinctive city skyline, award-winning mixology and an alpine-inspired street food menu, Skylight Rooftop is a perfect spot for a festive get-together with family and housemates. Our snuggly igloos, complete with blankets and mounds of cushions give you the best seat in the house to catch our famous sunset, wherever you’re sitting.
Running the length of our iconic cobbled walkway and nestled beneath the masts of our famous ships, our Quayside igloos are the centre point of the Tobacco Dock Christmas. Whether it’s a gathering with your housemates or your nearest and dearest, the cosy Quayside igloos are a great place to snuggle up, sip some seasonal tipples and watch the world go by. With full table service, we’ll keep the party spirit flowing with jugs of cocktails, buckets of beer, warming mulled wine and ski-trip-inspired foodie treats.
Party in a luxury (physically-distanced) chalet this festive season. Get convivial and raise a glass (or three) to toast the season; our award-winning cocktails are guaranteed to keep those festive vibes a-buzzing.
Tucked away in the Vaults, join us for some clandestine cocktail fun at our exclusive speakeasy, an under-the-radar luxe festive experience. With a maximum capacity of just 26, Off-Piste is an intimate space for those of you who want to concentrate on the serious business of cocktails!
Feast in the Forest
Our favourite thing about Christmas is the food; there’s nothing like sharing an exquisite meal with the ones you love. Sip on a cocktail on arrival, take your seat in the candle-lit woodland clearing and loosen your belt. Drawing their inspiration from the forest, the award-winning chefs from Alison Price will take you on a gastronomic journey over six courses featuring foraged and seasonal ingredients.
Christmas Cocktail Cinema
Forget the usual cinema fare of sticky carpets and endless trailers, we’re bringing you festive cocktails, luxurious seating and gourmet snacks. We figured you might have had enough of watching films in your living room this year, so we’ve created a fun movie experience for you to share - albeit with distance built in - with your family and house-friends. Enjoy a drink (or two!) before the film begins, then snuggle with your partner up under your blankets for one of your Christmas favourites.
It’s back! Wow your friends with your skating skills on the ice rink, which is available on a first-come-first-served basis (we just ask that you keep the triple axel toe loops to a minimum).
Our mini-Christmas market is filled with seasonal treats to keep up your energy reserves. Warm yourself up with steaming mugs of mulled wine and sugar-dusted churros and soak up the atmosphere of Skylight Christmas.
