A corporate Christmas party is the perfect opportunity to get your colleagues and associates out of the office for once to build connections that will last into the next working year, as well as just to let off some steam after all their hard work – both of which are very important. As such, you want to make it a great night for everyone, and step one in achieving that is to secure the right venue so that you can set the scene for a successful evening. The following choices would all be a good place to start.
Found in St John Square, Clerkenwell & Social is a truly unique and totally eye-catching venue. The theme here is the literary world, complete with quirky décor, including books that are literally suspended above your head. This eclectic design and eccentric touch is sure to get guests talking, making for the perfect ice-breaker. Failing that, the bespoke cocktails and hand-crafted pizzas will undoubtedly win everyone over. With 2 floors and an outdoor terrace at your disposal, there is ample space for up to 250 guests per reception and plenty of options when it comes to nearby transport links.
The star of the show at The Balcony Room will without doubt be the stunning views it offers. Its location is one of the city’s very best, being found on the top floor, above a bar and restaurant, right next to the renowned Globe theatre on the banks of the river. This grants you an unrivalled perspective of London, including a gorgeous view of St Paul’s Cathedral. The floor to ceiling French doors which open out onto the private balcony let in lots of natural light, keeping the space bright and airy, while the interior’s finish is one of contemporary sophistication.
Despite becoming immediately popular as Europe’s first (and still largest) social ping pong club, Bounce is truly a multi-purpose, genre defying venue that is now also a wonderful destination for all sorts of events, both business and pleasure. There is 12,000 square feet of space available in all, allowing for a maximum capacity of 500, whilst being in Holborn, it is very well connected to the rest of London and beyond, with Chancery Lane tube station just a stone’s throw away and Farringdon train station also reachable within a comfortable walking distance.
