The Best Winter Terraces & Pop Up Bars In London

We may have waved goodbye to warmer days for the foreseeable, but that in no way means us beer-loving brits are ready to ditch our beloved beer gardens that easy, instead, we’ll drape them with lights, stick an igloo in there, serve up mulled-anything and call it a winter terrace instead.
