Forza win(ter)

After its summer success, Forza is popping up for the cold months.

Book for a yummy Italian-style fondue served on a Bethnal Green rooftop.

For £30 you’ll get a three-course meal, plus a hot drink on arrival.


Sugarhouse studios

Out in Stratford, this is an arty hidden gem.

The warehouse conversion will be demolished in 2013, so enjoy a supper club or play on the ping-pong tables before it goes for good.


Boisdale on ice

Grab a mug of mulled wine as well as burgers and hot mince pies at this bar and its neighbouring Wright Brothers’ Oyster shack.

Pop in until January 13 after a whirl on the nearby Canary Wharf ice skating rink.
