It’s not necessarily too late to secure a booking for a Christmas party in a popular area of the city like Bank, but you will have to move quickly if you want to avoid disappointment. Here are some great venues to help narrow your search and hopefully speed up the process so you needn’t miss out.
Priding itself on offering privacy and discretion, The Walbrook Club is often regarded as one of the city’s best hidden gems. The high-quality level of personal service that is offered to both members and non-members alike helps to set the venue apart from others like it, with the elegant home-inspired décor adding an extra touch to the welcoming, relaxed atmosphere. The capacity allows for up to 130 guests, and both Bank and Monument tube stops can be reached in just a few minutes each.
Banking Hall was designed to impress, and impress it most certainly does. The towering marble columns that surround the main event space and the beautiful Art Deco styling throughout make for an imposing and visually stunning backdrop ideally suited to the season of decadence and excess. With a generous capacity of 800, there’s more than enough space for all your friends or colleagues to attend, and with the nearest rail link just a stone’s throw away, it’s well connected to the rest of London.
With an impressive selection of 9 different event spaces to choose from all under one roof, Merchant Taylors is a historic venue with a lot to offer. Found in the heart of the city, its sense of traditional splendour would make anyone feel spoiled on a special occasion. Ornate, period features await every glance, making for a truly immersive experience, and with a great maximum capacity of up to 700, it’s another offering well suited to large-scale gatherings.
CORE boasts 3 rooms across its 2 floors, each one offering its own distinct style, with quirky features found throughout. In addition to this, there’s a colourful outside terrace that serves as a lovely little breakaway space, giving the venue as a whole a capacity of around 450. The vibe here is one of ultra-cool, making it the perfect place to gather with friends to unwind and get into the festive swing of things. Bank station is just 5 minutes away, with Mansion House even closer.
Painters’ Hall houses 3 diverse rooms which you can choose from for your event, with exclusive hire also an option should you want to utilise the full 250-person capacity. Gorgeous features and a sense of timeless tradition can be found throughout the venue, bringing a sense of warmth and grandeur to any occasion, not least a Christmas party; a time of year when we all love a bit of tradition after all. As for getting there, Mansion House and Cannon Street are the nearest public transport links.
