Mr Toms is bringing a slice of the snowy South Island to Ponsonby Road

If you’re among those who cannot make it down to the mountain this winter for a spot of skiing, fear not, Mr Toms is bringing a slice of the slopes to Ponsonby Road. Creating a kind of alpine oasis with (fake) falling snow, lanterns, blankets, a rotating line-up of DJs and fairy lights, the ‘Somersby Winter Garden’ will be going down every Thursday this August.

The major drawcard, however, is the winter-specific treats on offer, with roasted apple and burnt meringue s’mores from Miann (set on fire by the bartenders) alongside heady mugs of piping hot mulled cider and cocktails, sure to heat things up. As an added bonus, the team will be giving away a trip for two to Queenstown, with all the frills attached (flights, accommodation etc). For your chance to win, just head to Mr Toms on any Thursday of this month.
