It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Harvey Nichols, who are embracing the season in a typically fashion-forward style. The iconic Leeds store is famous for its wonderfully festive window displays, impressive in-store activations, and sparkling events - and 2023 is no exception.
Not only is the famous Fourth Floor Brasserie revealing an indulgent winter and Christmas dining menu, but they’re also unveiling its all-new all-weather terrace in collaboration with drink of the season Patrón El Cielo Terrace and Edible Arts Patisserie.
Designed exclusively for Harvey Nichols by the premium tequila brand, the new heated terrace will channel a sophisticated look with muted silver, green and gold tones which take inspiration from their stylish bottle design. The terrace has undergone its biggest makeover to date, making it the perfect cosy winter retreat to sip cocktails or take a break from shopping.
Their new winter serves include the warming Blood Orange and Gingerbread Fizz, which mixes their smooth signature Patrón El Cielo with Harvey Nichols Champagne, blood orange and gingerbread syrup to capture Christmas in a glass. Tequila has fast become the spirit of choice over the past couple of years and Patrón El Cielo is one of the most sought-after brands to emerge in this sector.
Other highlights that are sure to entice any serious cocktail aficionado include the Cinnamon & Black Pepper Old Fashioned and the Honey & Chestnut Sour. Their tequila collection is also available in the Fourth Floor Wine Shop and expected to be a bestseller for Christmas 2023.
Another addition to the festive line up is Edible Arts Patisserie. From Saturday 18th November, the team will be on hand to treat your tastebuds to a selection of delicious macarons and delectable chocolates from their new home on the Fourth Floor. Created by top pastry chef Damien Wager, the Patisserie will feature a selection of creative, limited-edition flavours, exclusive to Harvey Nichols inspired by some of their very own Christmas ranges.
The Fourth Floor Brasserie is also pleased to announce its highly anticipated winter and Christmas dining menu, which is filled with a myriad of inspired flavours. Starters include a rich Blue Cheese Mousse with pear and walnut, and a Tuna Eclair with oyster emulsion, cucumber, red wine vinegar jelly and crispy shallots.
Mains range from the classic Roasted Turkey Breast with braised turkey leg pie to a Roasted Beef Fillet with truffle-infused jus and Pan-fried Hake with saffron potatoes. Guests can choose to indulge in three courses of the Christmas Menu alongside 90 minutes of bottomless Harvey Nichols Champagne for just £98. A perfect way to celebrate with friends and family this festive season.
For a memorable evening of culture and opulent dining, look no further than Dine out on Opera, the annual event takes place on Wednesday 22nd November in the Fourth Floor Brasserie. Guests can enjoy a sumptuous three course meal and performance cocktails as they take in the musical excellence of Opera North – all set against the dramatic skyline views of Leeds.
Dishes include Pan Fried Yorkshire Chicken Breast with cavolo nero, wild mushroom and chicken thigh arancini, Pan Fried Halloumi and Cured Salmon with beetroot, apple, horseradish, and hazelnut. The event is expected to sell out and makes for a perfect start to the party season.
And finally, Harvey Nichols is bringing all the fun of the fair to kick off the festive gifting season with their Rewards Shopping Party. Shop until you drop in-store between Thursday 2nd November and Monday the 6th with live DJ sets and exclusive discounts throughout the store on the most complete collection of luxury gifts in town.
