This winter escape with Hoxton Winter Rooftop to a glittering Emerald realm where nothing is quite what it seems and even the beer runs green... but one thing’s for sure, you’re not in Kansas anymore.
From October 24th, Queen of Hoxton’s Shoreditch rooftop will be going green. Climb the yellow brick road up to our cosy rooftop WigWam where you’ll find a bewitching green den. Feast on hearty Kansas style food before continuing along the golden path to our Emerald Garden. Here you’ll find fire pits to toast marshmallows around, and walls glistening with Emerald jewels, as well as a hidden bar serving up hot and cold green cocktail delights. As usual, we’ll have a series of immersive events to entertain, inspire and excite you through the long winter nights.
This Autumn/Winter we will be celebrating the season of the witch at Queen of Hoxton. Join our coven and enrol for witch academy classes. Learn Pxssy magic and how to cast spells, gather around our firepits with a mulled wine to hear feminist witch storytelling and shop for everything from sage smudging sticks to Yoni wands at our winter witchcraft market in the WigWam. They’ll also be hosting green eco-events such as a big green clothes swap and pickling workshops to make Christmas gifts from kitchen scraps.
