With December just a few days away, we are well and truly heading into Christmas party season. For once, we are very organised with a venue for our Christmas party (cue smug face) but just in case you haven’t booked yours yet, we’ve thrown together some last-minute ideas that have worked well for us in the past.
Perfect for a brewery tour and some craft beer tasting, Crate offers a casual environment to see in the silly season. Book a table in the main restaurant and enjoy pizzas and pints or organise something a little more private in The White Building, an event space that offers a blank canvas to really make your own. Either way, the events team are friendly and accommodating and you are sure to have a really fun celebration.
Flat Iron Square’s property portfolio is ever growing, and you’ll honestly be spoilt for choice when selecting a space to host your Christmas bash. Our personal favs are the Apres Ski Lodge and the cozy Tap and Bottle wine bar. Flat Iron Square offer a great selection of wines and with so many eclectic food vendors, you can pretty much take a culinary tour of the world’s most popular dishes.
If you are looking for something a little bit smaller and more intimate, Grays and Feather have the cutest coves, perfect for bookings for around 8 to 12 people. Enjoy an exceptional list of champagnes and delicious small plates while admiring the décor in this dimly lit haven. Having only opened a few weeks ago, you might get lucky and find they still have availability.
Cubitt House have some of our favourite pubs in their portfolio, all of which offer lovely events spaces. Contact one of their fabulous pubs and make use of their pre-planned Christmas menus, you can be assured the food will be exceptional and the service is always friendly and efficient.
If you are looking for something extra special this Christmas, why not treat you and your team to a delicious meal at Bagatelle. This chic French restaurant in the heart of Mayfair is the perfect place to slap on your glad rags and really celebrate the festive season in style. Bagatelle has recently started serving lunch too, so you might get lucky and nab yourself a booking even at late notice, but it won’t be long before the who’s who of London are filling up their reservations book so be quick.
If you have the space in your office to create your own Christmas fun, why not give The Change Group a call and hire a private chef to create a bespoke menu for your team. Our chefs have worked in some of the finest restaurants, hotels and events companies in London and are able to whip up a meal that rivals the best Christmas dinner. Whether you are looking for a casual cocktail party with canapes and festive drinks or a sit-down meal for the whole company, our team can help. We also have friendly front of house staff who can handle all the logistics of the event and ensure everything runs smoothly.
