This summer, Bodo’s Schloss – well loved for bringing all the fun and glamour of après ski to the heart of Kensington – will launch a new and improved restaurant area and menu. Named after Bodo’s Cafezelt, the oldest tent at Munich’s legendary Oktoberfest and Schloss and the Austrian word for palace, this unique restaurant bar and disko concept offers the perfect alpine escape, without having to set foot outside London.
Modelled on an authentic Austrian farmhouse, quirky design features include ski lined walls, a DJ booth fashioned from a 1920s vintage ski lift and, of course, the Bodo’s mascot, a cow standing guard over the entrance. Staff attired in traditional dirndls and lederhosen welcome guests in to relax in the rustic setting on cow hide banquettes.
Bodo’s Schloss will launch a separate dedicated restaurant area this summer, offering a blend of classic and contemporary dishes in a stylish and relaxed setting, with red and white gingham check tablecloths and reclaimed wood used throughout. Talented Head Chef Jordan Sempler (The Lanesborough, 1 Lombard Street) will create a menu featuring lighter dishes for summer, with picnic hampers available for diners to enjoy at their table or take away.
Bodo’s transforms into ‘Die Diskothek’, a nightclub hosting some of Europe’s finest DJS in true apres-ski style between Wednesday and Saturday, with a highlight being the weekly Donnerstag party, sponsored by Ciroc Vodka.
Bodo’s Schloss can also organize any type of event, from dining to cocktail parties. The talented events team will create a truly bespoke experience with menus, live entertainment, DJS, bands, and photography. Guests can create their own winter wonderland or Oktoberfest knees up. This summer they will be showing the World Cup 2014 on HD screens and have create a full package for guest who prefer to enjoy the games in luxurious settings with canapés, beer and full waiter service.
