Christmas comes to SouthGate
Christmas has come to SouthGate… in a suitably spectacular fashion.
This very evening (Thursday 16 November) there’ll be free candy canes and mulled wine, a Big Lights Switch On and guaranteed snow – yes, snow! – to herald the arrival of Christmas at Bath’s most all-inclusive shopping and merrymaking zone. But the fun only starts here!
Regardless of the weather forecast, snow will fall every hour on St Lawrence Street North and South for the duration of the festive season, while breathtakingly pretty icicle chandeliers light our way along and through all SouthGate routes (and, of course, around a veritable forest of very well-dressed trees.). Heck, there’s even a Kissmas selfie love seat to keep the snappers happy!
Meanwhile, the restaurants and bars in and around SouthGate are hosting myriad party menus this party season. Having checked out the Christmas Menus and events at the Cosy Club, Graze, Comptoir Libanais, Absurd Bird and Giraffe (in fact, we’re off to review Giraffe any moment now, so keep an eye out for the results), we’re wondering how many Christmas feasts it’s okay to indulge in between now and December 25th itself. And while we’re contemplating such a possibility we’ll be chilling out at Frosty’s Bar, which has popped up at the epicentre of the SouthGate action offering an alfresco seating area complete with cosy blankets and serving mulled wine, festive cocktails, soothing hot chocolate, freshly-baked mince pies and many more seasonal treats.
Lights, cameras, action: the SouthGate Christmas scene is most definitely set – and we’re all invited to the party.
