The Angel Hotel in Abergavenny has opened a new après ski bar, bringing the atmosphere of an Alpine ski lodge to the heart of the town.

Decorated in true Alpine ski chalet style, the bar was built almost entirely by the team at The Angel and includes wooden interior, comfy seating and traditional antler chandelier - a very cosy spot to celebrate this winter with friends and family.

The bar is stocked with a selection of German beers, mulled wines and festive cocktails, as well as a range of non-alcoholic hot drinks and hearty snacks including hot dogs, sausage rolls and mince pies.

Whilst the adults get a taste for the Alps, children can visit Santa in his grotto in The Angel’s courtyard.

There’s even the opportunity to enjoy a ride through the streets of Abergavenny in Santa’s horse-drawn sleigh.

Along with the new après ski bar, The Angel Hotel will be hosting a variety of festive events throughout December, from a seasonal twist on their award-winning afternoon teas to decadent Great Gatsby party nights on December 18 and 19.
