The city centre alpine winter wonderland with karaoke huts and Doggy Grotto

Expect karaoke hüttes, new cocktails and an après ski atmosphere you (or your doggy) won’t be able to get enough of

Festive favourite Bar Hütte is officially now open, bigger and better than ever before at Great Northern Warehouse.

Expect karaoke hüttes, new cocktails and an après ski atmosphere you won’t be able to get enough of.

Bar Hütte’s alpine winter wonderland welcomes you for Christmas crackin’ celebrations, complete with cosy furnishings, twinkling lights, live music sessions, drinks flowing and the chance to sing your heart out in your own private hütte.

Inspired by some of the coolest après ski bars in Europe, Bar Hütte combines super snug ski hüttes with a vibrant and fun atmosphere, whether you’re out with friends, having a Christmas party, date night, or looking to chill-out for an afternoon drink.

Embrace the best time of the year with prosecco, cocktails (including the legendry Bombardino) and Shot-Skis, all brought to you by your own hütte host, whilst you blast out Christmas karaoke classics.

New to Bar Hütte this year will also be Wreath Making Masterclasses, plus a brand-new Doggy Grotto, complete with ‘pawsecco’, and complimentary dog treats. This un-fur-gettable experience has everything dog lovers need to get into the festive spirit, including photo props and Santa hats to make your four-legged friend look even cuter!

Here for a good time, not for a long time – the pop-up will be in place until Sunday 9th January 2022.

Christmas cocktails at Bar Hütte

If you’re wondering what a Bar Hütte Bombardino is, then you are in for a treat! An Italian mountain classic, warm rum, cream and cinnamon shot served topped with whipped cream… essentially Christmas in a cup.

New to this year’s menu, there’s an array of season cocktails, including T’is the Season; Sipsmith Vodka, Chambord, pumpkin puree and raspberry and Winter Spiced Old Fashioned; Makers Mark, spiced syrup & orange bitters.

Bar Hütte’s hot serves include Makers Biscoff Hot Chocolate; Makers Mark, hot chocolate & speculoos syrup and Hot Gin & Gingerbread; Sipsmith London Dry, gingerbread syrup, water, orange slice plus many more.

Bar Hütte is also known for their ‘Shot-Ski’s too – four shots of limoncello on actual ski. Tip back together, then head to the dance floor…

How to book a Karaoke Hütte

To experience a ‘Cosy Karaoke Hütte’ for up to eight people, each hut requires a non-refundable booking fee of £60, and this secures your exclusive use for 1 hour, 45 minutes along with a complimentary welcome ‘Bombardino’ and Christmas karaoke.

Book a Christmas party in the VIP lodge

Hosting a party? Bar Hütte’s VIP lodge can cater for a minimum of 9 and a maximum of 20 people.
