Yauatcha City

The modern Chinese restaurant has launched its winter terrace, Yauatcha Ice City, where you can sip on a glass of Moët & Chandon champagne and nibble on dim sum within the warm confines of the heated terrace. Open until March 2022, the wintery rooftop framing Broadgate Circle takes its inspiration from the Ice and Snow Festival in Harbin, a city in China’s northeast Heilongjiang province.
