Adding to the festive cheer alongside the Birmingham Christmas markets is a new bar that makes for the most cosy and perfect setting, allowing you to retreat from the cold and put your feet up after a spot of Christmas shopping. Known as Winterlandia, the pop-up bar features chalet-style huts, igloos as well as an enormous tipi to provide you with both shelter and a place for a festive tipple or two.
The alpine-esque bar has opened on the balcony at The Bullring and boasts brilliant views overlooking St Martin’s Church. It features two igloos to seat six people and one massive igloo to seat eight, as well as multiple picnic tables, woodland-style stools and alpine huts decorated with lights and baubles for you and your friends to enjoy a well-deserved break this winter.
Now open, the winter wonderland pop-up bar will be outside the shopping centre throughout the festive season and will be serving mugs of mulled cider and mulled wine (with optional addition of cherry or ameretto) as well as plenty of other drinks such as wine, beer, spirits and fruit cider.
Winterlandia will also be serving the ultimate winter treat in the form of delicious mugs of hot chocolate topped with whipped cream, marshmallows and chocolate flake. Plus, since it’s nearly Christmas, why not upgrade your hot chocolate with the addition of Baileys?
As the name suggests, Winterlandia is all about creating a cosy festive atmosphere for people who want to escape the hustle and bustle in Birmingham during the Christmas period. With twinkling lights and snow-dusted Christmas trees the pop-up bar is a great place for festive get-togethers with friends and family, whether you choose to get toasty in the heated tipi bar or cosy up by hiring an igloo complete with blankets and cushions.
Winterlandia replaces Blossom Bar, the pink, floral pop-up bar situated on the Bullring balcony during the summer months. Entry to the tipi bar is free and there is a £40 minimum spend for the igloo hire. You can make a reservation at Winterlandia by calling 07514843709.
