Looking to secure one of Farringdon’s coolest venues for your Christmas party? Look no further than these top picks, sure to get you and all our guests revelling in festive cheer.
St Bart’s Brewery is a flexible offering when it comes to the scale you had in mind for your party, as you could opt for hire of the luxurious Balfour Bar for intimate gatherings of up to 50 people, or make use of the whole venue which would allow you to invite as many as 250 guests. Regularly hosting live music events, catering to entertainment needs should pose no problems, whilst the good nearby transport links make it easily reachable from across the length and breadth of London.
SMITHS’ of Smithfield is an all-day dining concept spread across a total of 4 floors. The experienced inhouse events team will work closely with you to bring your ideas to life, being not at all afraid to put together bespoke events. Cocktail making classes are available should you want to kick off proceedings by getting everyone interacting (and sampling a tasty tipple or two), and with a vast maximum capacity of 850 in all, you needn’t worry about scrimping when it comes to forming the guest list.
BOUNCE is more than just a venue, it’s a leading social entertainment concept that boldly combines the best of hospitality, business and pleasure, offering use of a bar, restaurant and meeting spaces, whilst also serving as a ping pong club, all complimented by award-winning design and the highest standard of finish. Capacities can range anywhere between 6 and 500 people, with a private room that includes its own cocktail bar, karaoke system, bespoke ping pong tables, sound system and much more also an option.
The name of Bleeding Heart Yard alone is striking and evocative, and luckily the venue itself lives up to these adjectives, and then some. For almost 30 years, the visually arresting and historic cobble-stoned Private Dining Rooms here have been welcoming guests for special occasions. The adjoining medieval Crypt is another fantastic space, ideal for private functions for between 50 and 120 guests. In terms of getting there, Farringdon and Chancery Lane stations are both within comfortable walking distance.
With a mid-2017 launch, The Postal Museum is a brand-new name on the London events scene, but one that is sure to quickly garner attention. Promising to be a unique and immersive underground experience, it includes a ride through 100-year-old secret tunnels. As for the event space itself, it’s very flexible in its use, able to host everything from fashion shows to private dinners and from award ceremonies to Christmas parties. Back above ground, the nearest rail links are Chancery Lane and Russell Square.
