Nothing says winter like wine, food and films, so I was delighted to hear that Mayfair’s delicious dining destination Hush has created a magical outdoor dining experience and combined all three. Classics in the Courtyard is a delightful programme of classic films screened every Saturday evening to warm the coldest hands and melt the warmest hearts; from Elf to Love Actually, Frozen to Fargo, wintry Saturday nights were meant to be spent like this.
As well as an impressive array of classic films screened each week the location is one of London’s best-kept secrets. Classics in the Courtyard is a hidden gem, discreetly nestled in Hush’s, cobbled court yard in the heart of historic Mayfair, film lovers can watch classic films whilst eating gourmet food from Hush’s al la carte menu and they’ve even created a menu of film inspired cocktails.
The restaurant itself has filmic roots part owned by none other than Roger Moore, of James Bond fame, a man who knows exactly how he likes his martinis.
Hush’s Classics in the Courtyard pops-up every Saturday night from 7pm from Nov 1 to March 28 with a £10 cover charge for each table. I’ll be there on December 6 snuggled up in a bespoke Hush blanket watching Elf, sipping cocktails and nibbling on gourmet popcorn. My Christmas starts then.
Hush can be found at No. 8 Lancashire Court, Brook St, London W1S 1EY
