Christmas in Stratford- What's Happening at IQL
It has reached that point of the year when the festive spirit starts seeping in and our thoughts begin to turn to Christmas.
If you’re searching for something to get you excited for the seasonal festivities – look no further. We have lots going on here and around IQL to make Christmas in Stratford, and London, a wonderful one.
Alpine festivities at Haugen
One of the newest places to eat in Stratford, Haugen is an alpine playground full of delights, based right here at IQL. Think three floors of restaurants, bars and a rooftop terrace serving up food inspired by the luxurious ski resorts of the alpine regions. And their festive events calendar is bursting with experiences you’ll want to sample.
During the cold winter months, is there anything better than something rich, warm and indulgent? Why not grab your friends for a Fondue Brunch: tuck into Haugen’s signature Fondue in a stylish setting with live music. Available Saturdays and Sundays from 12pm – 4pm.
Or enjoy the ‘Festive Fondue Feast’, from 7pm every night in December. It’s £45 per head for cheese or chocolate fondue accompanied by a glass of mulled wine or NV Sekt Patrizier – Haus, Weingut Max Ferdinand Richter (a delightful German sparkling wine).
Haugen is partnering with the one and only Jägermeister this festive season so expect some delectable, themed cocktails to wash it all down with!
IQL’s Christmas lights
Take a stroll through IQL and you’ll see that some of our trees have been decorated with twinkling lights, lighting the path to Haugen and London Stadium. Whether you’re just passing through or taking the family for a walk, if you snap a photo of our lights, tag us on Instagram!
Signorelli serves up festive fayre
We believe flavour is a key part to finding your Christmas spirit. And there’s no better place than Signorelli to sample the scents of the season.
Signorelli will be selling freshly baked pastries and goodies using your favourite winter ingredients, as well as a chocolate orange hot chocolate! Our recommendation is the turkey focaccia! Christmas celebration cakes are also on sale, so if you’re looking for an extra dose of wow at your Christmas table – this will impress your guests.
If you work here at IQL, why not consider Signorelli for your Christmas party venue? Cosy, with delicious food and drinks, they’re available for venue hire from 4pm – 11pm each day. They’re also putting together corporate Christmas gift hampers, with bespoke orders available.
