Christmas may be over but London still has plenty of good cheer on offer over the coming weeks. Indulge yourself between now and 11th February with a session at the Southbank Centre’s Finish Rooftop Sauna, followed by winter warmers at the Rooftop Bar. Or for an alternative rooftop experience, head to Soho’s Ham Yard hotel from 17th January to 17th February, where a pop-up bar is serving Sipsmith gin cocktails warmed with a red-hot poker!
