London: Groupon opens first ever 'shop'

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas, isn't it? I've been in this mood since the beginning of November, thanks to the absolute madness and chaos of London's Oxford Street! It's always a little better when I get to really feel the spirit of Christmas (mulled wine and all that) so I've started to go to a few festive events and markets...

One of the events I attended this week was the super cozy Groupon Grotto in Soho...the first ever one off pop up 'shop' that the online marketplace has opened to show customers a little taste of what they offer.

If you don't remember Groupon, it is a great website with lots of discount offers ranging from spa days and holidays, to home appliances and restaurant deals at a high discount rate. I've used the Groupon website several times when it first opened, and then eventually forgot about it as there were so many competitors. This event was a nice little reminder of what I was missing out on!

The grotto was so beautiful, like an enchanted forest! We had delicious mulled wine on arrival, and then tucked into some mini mince pies that were handed out throughout the evening.

We also got to make our own gourmet confit duck filo pastries with  L’Atelier des Chefs and tasted some yummy chocolate churros from The Burrito Cafe.

Other activit├ęs on offer were make up master classes from Studio 52, whisky tasting with The Soho Whisky Club, and endless amounts of prosecco (my kinda place!).

Groupon were feeling very generous it seems so they gave everyone a £10 voucher, I spend mine today and can confidently say I was pleasantly surprised at how good the revamped website looks. All the deals look handpicked, and offer trips to Paris and 5 star michelin restaurant deals!

Here are some of their latest Christmas offers to give you a little taste of what you can buy for yourself or as a gift for someone:

Hammam Experience, Massage and Use of Spa Facilities for £89 at 5* Le Kalon Spa (51% Off)

Paris: 1 to 3 Nights With Eurostar Tickets, Breakfast and Cruise from £135 Per Person*
