Soho is a go to part of London when it comes to parties, and this is never truer than during the run-up to Christmas. With that said, here are some of the very best venues on offer in the area.
68 and Boston is comprised of 2 distinct spaces: 68, the wine bar on the ground floor; and Boston, the first-floor cocktail bar which serves both classics and originals. Private and semi-private areas are available for anywhere between 2 and 260 people, with full hire also an option, meaning it really is a flexible offering no matter the scale you had in mind. There’s no shortage of good transport links nearby either, with Tottenham Court Road and Leicester Square just a couple to choose from.
Basement Sate is a hidden gem that brings a touch of Parisian chic to the heart of Soho, courtesy of the rich and sumptuous décor, complimented by immersive, characterful spaces that include the likes of dark woods and exposed brickwork. The real star of the show is likely to be the delicious selection of food and drink however, which is sure to keep everyone feeling refreshed. You are once again surrounded by tube stops, so travelling from throughout the city needn’t pose any problems.
Split across several floors, there are various different spaces on offer at Union Club & Studios. Perhaps the best of these for a Christmas party would be the first floor studio, which can accommodate up to 150 guests. Throughout the premises however, the interior has been stripped back to the bare walls and beams, bringing buckets of rustic charm to the space and really capitalising on the ever increasing popularity of industrial chic.
Spread across 2 floors, 100 Wardour Street boasts an impressively generous total capacity of 870, making it a fantastic choice for large scale gatherings. Taking inspiration from the creative reputation of the surrounding area, it is suitably stylish and elegant in its finish, whilst the basement level club, centred around its stage and state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems, is the perfect space to get everyone having fun and enjoying the festive cheer.
Graphic Bar is every gin lover’s dream, with no less than 300 different varieties of the tipple on offer. The food is equally as tempting, with delicious sharing plates, canapes and bowl foods. In addition to this, you can expect to enjoy the benefits of a late licence and DJs, ensuring that the festive celebrations continue well into the wee small hours. Both Piccadilly Circus and Oxford Circus stations are within easy walking distance for those travelling from across London.
