Get Your Christmas Cocktail On: The Trafalgar in London Covers Rooftop Bar with Winter Dome
November 18, 2010By: Mary Winston Nicklin
The Trafalgar's rooftop barYou'd be hard-pressed to find a better spot to take in the views of Trafalgar Square's festive merriment than the rooftop bar at The Trafalgar Hotel. Ogle the famous Norwegian Christmas tree, a gift to the people of London from Norway every year since 1947, and watch the groups of carolers sing against this awesome backdrop. (The Norwegian spruce is said to be the tallest tree in the UK.) The hotel's rooftop bar, Vista, is unveiling a new look for the season: a winter dome covering the entire bar space meaning night owls get to enjoy the views without braving the cold. The arrival of the Norwegian Christmas tree has also inspired a range of Nordic cocktails:
