This toasty little pop-up bar is an east London treasure in the colder months, situated atop the Queen of Hoxton – you can spot this rooftop teepee from around the block. WigWamBam is both wonderful and unusual, but more importantly, it is a warm welcome respite from the winter chill.
Open every day except Sunday between 5-10pm, it is ideal for an after-work drink or a cosy date night, giving you plenty of opportunity to snuggle into one another. Go ahead and order yourself some winter warmers: try the Egg Snog or a Hot Buttered Rum for a full festively warming experience. For hearty nibbles, you can tuck into the various charcoal BBQ items: from venison burgers to bourbon-smoked beef brisket.
Keep an eye out for the special events: from origami workshops to cider tastings … this bar likes things a little less ordinary, as do we. But remember, this childlike yet grown-up experience is only available until March – so go on, get stuck in.
Best Bars tip: You can’t book ahead here, so just show up early and hope for the best. And if you don’t make some s’mores, well … colour us disappointed.
