Pergola Paddington Central
Until Saturday 23rd December. Free.
Though alfresco dining halls are all the rage in London summertime, they often go in hibernation for the winter. But the trademark urban gardens of Pergola Padding Central returns this weekend and with some important winterproof improvements; the site is heated, fully enclosed, and comes with a brand new clear roof for some star gazing! Think low level lighting, snug blankets, dark woods, winter greenery and mulled wines.
There’s seating for up to 850 diners, 7 giant day beds, 2 mouth-watering self-service restaurants and 2 bountifully stocked bars. There’s also Pergola’s brand of street food dining from five of London’s top independent eateries: Patty & Bun, D/F Mexico, Made of Dough, Tonkotsu and Little Ghost bagels.
Location: 5 Kingdom Street, W2 6PY. Nearest Tube: Paddington.
