Verbier will take up residency for two nights in London at the end of this month.

The famous Swiss ski resort will give Londoners a rare chance to experience the resort’s famous  apres-ski vibe on home turf with DJs, drinks and raclette for all.

The event at Iron Bloom Shoreditch, which will be converted into a winter wonderland, is scheduled for Friday 29 and Saturday 30 September from 6.30-10pm, but the guest list will be limited to just 120 apres-ski seekers on both nights.

Free entry includes four alcoholic drinks and food but you need to snap up your ticket fast via this link.

Swapping high peaks for skyscrapers, the pop-up hot-spot will be serving up authentic local flavours, from Verbier beers and alpine gin to Swiss wine. As you would expect from Switzerland’s liveliest resort, there will be Swiss DJ’s (Claire McGregor and Garance) in the house spinning classic apres-ski tunes to ensure a memorable Verbier-style night out in the heart of London.

Verbier is also known as the World Capital of Raclette, with the historic dish’s origins dating back to the 1200s. For a true taste of the mountains, revellers’ hunger will melt away as they tuck into a traditional raclette and become expert racleurs. What’s more, cheese-lovers will have the opportunity to enjoy a masterclass with Verbier’s biggest cheese connoisseur and Raclette maestro Eddy Baillifard – one of the region’s unmissable personalities – who has turned his dairy skills into a delicious art form.

The event will also offer an insight into the region’s annual PALP music festival., the week-long Alpine musical event which has been showcasing the region’s top artistic and culinary talent against a dramatic mountain backdrop for the past 12 years.
