Harvey Nichols Lexus RX Winter Garden
Harvey Nichols is hosting a unique RX Winter Garden on the Fifth Floor Roof Terrace in Knightsbridge from now to the end of January, in partnership with luxury automotive brand Lexus. The space has been transformed into a luxurious, yet rugged winter garden, providing Harvey Nichols customers with an escape from the busy city streets, to celebrate the launch of the new edition Lexus RX SUV.
Harvey Nichols has also introduced a dedicated limited edition Japanese-themed cocktail and snack menu to celebrate the partnership, ensuring guests will be able to relax with a stylish, innovative cocktail from a bespoke new menu. Taking inspiration from the Lexus RX design, Harvey Nichols has created a winter retreat to reflect the craftsmanship and experience of the RX, using plants, furniture and lighting to remodel the Fifth Floor Terrace and to provide the space with a rugged outdoor feel.

The Harvey Nichols Winter Garden and cocktail menu have been created to reflect the build quality and comfort of the RX, inspired by omotenashi – the Japanese principles of welcoming hospitality, so whether you’re retoxing or detoxing this winter, there will be the perfect alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage available to enjoy in the Winter Garden, from the Coco Go-Go (coconut flakes, water, cream and syrup with lemon juice and chilli) to the Oriental Blossom (vanilla-infused vodka, violet liqueur, lychee and lemon juice served over ice, with orange foam, dried orange and edible flowers).
“The Lexus RX Winter Garden offers a perfect retreat in the heart of London’s Knightsbridge. We’re excited to be partnering with Lexus to bring a unique winter garden experience and Japanese-themed menu to our customers.”
