This winter come and break free from Bad Santa's shackles and join a band of rebels in the frozen south for festive frolics, the South Pole Saloon returns. Escape the dark winter nights and the urban streets of Brixton by climbing the stairs to South London’s most popular rooftop. Be prepared for the eyes to widen as you are greeted with a naughty twinkle in a candy caners eye as she leads you past the swinging saloon doors and into a heated and covered wonderland. Creative cocktails are shaken, festive street food is prepared right before you, the sounds of live music and party beats surround you and the interactive entertainment will astound you. There is nothing more you could want from your seasonal session.

Following its roaring success in 2015, South Pole Saloon is back, its bigger, better and badder than ever before. The beloved saloon bar, heavy with sensational woodland lodge theming, is ready for revelers. The rooftop with a capacity of over 800 features three main bars and one private bar, four incredible street food traders, a stage for live bands and performances, private hire areas including 8 candy caner cabins and 3 fully themed VIP rooms, a night club with 2am license all within a fully heated and covered rooftop just 3 minute’s walk from Brixton tube station.

The venue’s focus is on a wide range of premium draft and bottled beers and a truly spectacular winter warmer cocktail menu, created by the saloon’s chief mixologist once kidnapped by the rebel elves from Southern France, his role is to serve you only the best cocktails in the land. His menu is inspired by the festive spirit and the darkest depths of the south. This year, South Pole Saloon also welcomes the now renowned ABQ to the roof, offering outstanding immersive molecular cocktail experiences. You are invited to book an experience at their dedicated bar to cook up molecular cocktails with theatrical ingredients such as dry ice and emulsifications. Drink, art and science meet, resulting in astonishingly good cocktails.

Guests can expect to encounter spectacular performances from the oh so naughty but nice candy caner girls and the renegade rebel elves that preside over the South Pole following their escape from a life of slavery in Santa’s toy factories. Live music provides the score to the story every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night from 7pm – 9pm.
