Focus On: Ski Season at Hush, Mayfair
With the holiday season in full swing and the treetops glistening, it’s time to go off piste in the capital. Get your snow boots and outfits ready as Hush in Mayfair is all set to unleash a wintry wonderland for its guests.
Tucked away in Lancashire Court in the heart of W1, mum is most definitely the word here. But can you keep the secret safe?
Launching at the beginning of 2014, you can head to the Alps without even stepping on a plane thanks to its après-ski courtyard.
As the ski season kicks off, it is certainly is the perfect time to introduce this powdery white palace. Our moles tell us that the courtyard will undergo a transformation like no other with a good bit of kitsch thrown in!
Just think sparkly lights not to mention retro skis and a host of sledges sitting side by side with cosy blankets and hot water bottles galore.
In addition, you can do your own Sound of Music impression if you like and really blend in with the locals.
But what’s cooking at this snug outdoor Alpine retreat? Hush guests can tuck into a number of different off piste delights from schnitzels and spaghetti to baked Vacherin Mont d’Or.
For those drinks enthusiasts, why not slurp on one of their brand spanking new signature cocktails which features the Courchevel 1850. This comes straight to your table presented in a monogrammed hip flask.
But wait there’s so much more dear friends. Thanks to their dedicated ski season loyalty card you can pick up at Hush, you will have the ability to enjoy your seventh meal free of charge.
Of course this is on the condition you will pay a visit at least half a dozen times. The icing on the Christmas cake is they intend to whip up a batch of the priciest mulled wine in the world.
Well that’s the word on the street anyway. The Mayfair Mulled Wine as it is called is a steamy £50 a glass. Let’s just hope you have change from a ton.
Incorporating a glug of 2008 Château Grand Puy Ducasse, this particular mulled wine is the ideal pick me up this time of year.
Once this warm concoction envelops you like a warm fuzzy hug, feel the blend of cloves, bay leaves as well as anisette balls, cinnamon sticks organic goji berries and saffron.
Hang on to your ski hats though as they are also unveiling their ‘Classics in the Courtyard’ series. This will involve a host of ski based movies which will be shown across January.
Films you can hunker down to include ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’ and ‘Cool Runnings’ starring John Candy. So whichever way you intend to eradicate those post festive blues get yourself down to Lancashire Court from 2nd of January.
But remember…it’s all a bit hush hush.
