Before Santa hurries his way down the chimney, come down to Old Street and enjoy an early treat at this pop-up Christmas bar, where you can sing along to famous Christmas songs and bite into a mince pie. Make yourself comfortable in this 1950’s American suburban living room and enjoy a mulled wine, where you can definitely rest assured knowing that not only are you indulging in a warm treat, but you are also enjoying a drink prepared by some of London’s top bartenders.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
