Date: Monday, 01 October 2012 From 20th November and throughout December, the Montague on the Gardens will transform its outdoor Wood Deck to resemble an Alpine ski lodge. Decorated with snow, pine trees, a ski rack to park your skis and twinkling Christmas fairy lights, the bar promises to be a magical space tucked away in the heart of Bloomsbury. The ski lodge will be centred around a vodka bar which will treat guests to the twelve vodkas of Christmas. The Montague’s expert mixologists have masterfully blended festive flavours such as candy cane, toffee, spiced apple and Turkish delight to create the perfect après... without the ski. Guests will also be able to enjoy an exclusive Alpine food tasting platter consisting of bratwurst, mini turkey burgers and Roquefort and leek muffins. And when the winter really sets in guests will be able to combat the cold with a warming Winter Pimm’s, mugs of steaming hot chocolate and big woolly rugs keeping guests lovely and snug while outdoors over the long winter nights. The Montague on the Gardens’ Ski Lodge will be available for private hire throughout the festive period and due to popularity guests wishing to drop in for some après are encouraged to check availability and book in advance. They can choose a Personal Pass which includes three flavoured vodkas and an Alpine food tasting platter for £20 per person, while those looking to spoil themselves and their loved ones over the Christmas period can combine their personal pass with an overnight stay including full English breakfast and one festive afternoon tea, from £215 per room per night based on two people sharing a Classic Double Room. For companies wishing to offer their staff the ultimate Christmas party experience, the Christmas Party Pass includes a vodka taster on arrival, your choice of three further flavoured vodkas, winter canapés, a Christmas themed BBQ buffet, and a DJ with dance space, from £85 per person. The Montague on the Gardens, the luxury four-star hotel in Bloomsbury, is an elegant and long-established Georgian townhouse hotel overlooking a secluded private garden square. The 100 luxurious rooms and suites, including one two-bedroom apartment, are elegantly understated, furnished with luxurious fabrics capturing the timeless elegance of Bloomsbury and its literary heritage.
