Après Ski Bars
We’re remaking some of the most iconic après ski locations from all corners of the world...
Explore five themed alpine bars including:
Dicks Tee Bar– epic 80s aprés with retro onesies and cheesy anthems
Bavarian Haus – everything Austrian under one roof where even the staff wear lederhosen
Metro Lodge – complete with trendy house music
La Folie Douche
Wining and Dining
All the very best mouth-watering traditional alpine cuisine will be on offer, think bratwurst, crepes, fondue, tartiflette, roasted chestnuts, raclette, mulled wine, cider and more!
Alpine Shopping Village
Our massive shopping village has everything you could possibly need for your next trip to the mountains. Whether you’ve been freshly bitten by the snow-bug or you’re a seasoned shredder, there’s something for everyone...
Get advice from the people that live and breathe mountain life, peruse the latest technology, snow equipment and a full range of next season’s fashion items and streetwear or talk to the resorts and chalet companies to plan your winter getaway.
Cinema and Talks
Join us in our purpose built cinema-come-theatre lounge for ski and snowboard movie premières and talks from athletes featuring in the films, explorers and mountaineers sharing valuable life lessons and tips on avalanche safety.
Nestled among the mountain scenes you’ll find the Freeze winter fun fair; a mix of white knuckle thrill rides and old favourites like carousels and swinging chairs. Keep ski tips up and don’t lift the bar early!
Tune in to the Freeze Facebook and Twitter accounts to find out more about a trip to the mountains... in the centre of London!
