What are Bar Hüttes?

Known as “Winter Havens”, families, couples, friends and work colleagues are invited to escape the cold and embrace the warmth of Bar Hüttes during the festive period. Inspired by ski bars around Europe, there is a wide range of hüttes available to visit. Book karaoke hüttes offer wreath-making activities, family-friendly events, pup-friendly photo opportunities, and Christmas party packages.

Exclusive to the North West of England, festive folks can wrap up and sip on festive tipples whether it’s a glass of prosecco, classic cocktails, stonebaked pizzas or a cup of hot cocoa. It’s also worth softening up those vocal chords in the much-loved karaoke sessions. Which Christmas banger are you signing first, Last Christmas or A Fairytale of New York?

Dogs are allowed at all Bar Hüttes but there are also Bark Hüttes which are spaces dedicated to dogs!
