This pop up in Regent’s Place, from February 5th-16th, has made it possible to function in these arctic conditions.
The perfect lunch-break escape awaits in this hygge (pronounced ‘hoo-guh’) haven of fur throws, mood lighting and cosy surroundings….
Hygge Hideaway Opens in Regent’s Place
Hygge Hideaway, located between King’s Cross and Paddington, is a work and social hub that shares with its visitors a moment of Danish hygge – comfort, warmth and connectivity among friends.
A handful of Nordic-inspired craft workshops, including a Scandi-style Valentine’s lino print workshop and Nordic cushion printing, are up and running at the hideaway. How-to-Hygge tips written by self-care expert Hannah Massarella are given out on postcards to take a slice of hygge home. Therapeutic, restorative, lunch-break yoga sessions will also take place on the 9th and 16th of February from 1pm-1:45pm. The therapeutic classes are meditative, slow paced, and a good balance to active lifestyle. The passive practice involves variations of seated and supine poses typically held for 3 to 5 minutes.
Bakery Ole & Steen will join the fun on the 8th and 15th of February with authentic Scandinavian treats in tow. Dishes will include open-faced sandwiches on carrot rye with fillings like rare roast beef with pickled cucumber and remoulade; line caught hot smoked salmon and egg mayo; and Danish blue cheese with pickled pear and rye chips. The bakery’s popular sweet, the cinnamon social – a shareable Danish pastry with cinnamon and vanilla custard, will also make a guest starring appearance on the menu. Joe’s Tea will have a range of herbal teas available.
Located in Regent’s Place Plaza, open from 11am – 3pm. Visit Regent’s Place for details.
