Apple will reveal a glass elevator at its flagship UK retail store on Regent Street by Christmas.

IFOAppleStore (a site focused entirely on Apple's retail operations) reports the company has planned a special weekend of events to show the renovations it has been engaged in all through summer to the public for the first time.

The elevator is apparently modelled on the glass cube/elevator of Apple's Fifth Avenue store.

If you show up that weekend (apparently scheduled for 2 December), you'll see live DJs, and find a dedicated iPod bar and a second 'Studio' bar.

Apple has been renovating the store for most of the summer.
