The Eis Haus: Last Chance to Chill Out

You still have time to say farewell to winter by visiting The Eis Haus Ice Lounge and Bar, which is back at the Magical Lantern Festival until 26th February. This glistening bar, set in the beautifully restored 18th century gardens of Chiswick House, has been created by international artists who have used over ten tonnes of purified crystal clear ice to build a stunning, magical interior with hand-carved sculptures; literally everything you see and touch is made of ice, including a 1.5 metre-high Rooster to celebrate 2017’s Chinese New Year.

Even though the chilled inside is maintained at around -5°c and It’s recommended that you wear warm outdoor clothing, hat and gloves, you’ll be able to keep warm with a hooded jacket they’ll provide you with during your visit, as well as a complimentary shot in a real ice glass.

With the Silk Road as the main theme, you can also visit the ice cave, guarded by two howling ice wolves, have your picture taken by the Silk Road-themed large ice sculpture features in the ice Photobooth, or relax and enjoy the chill-out music played by the house vintage DJs at the Après bar, with its outdoor alpine deck, heaters, blankets and bar serving hot winter drinks with traditional treats. But get in quick, spring is just around the corner. Where else you can experience a little atmosphere of the Alps right in the heart of London?

The Castle at the Space: SEEN Reviews

SEEN was not that familiar with the work of Howard Barker prior to seeing ‘The Castle’ but feels she must rectify that situation. A powerful piece on the nature of masculinity, war, gender roles and the essential unreliability of religious faith, ‘The Castle’ benefits from a powerhouse cast and a stripped-back set, making the most of the Space’s environment.
