January can be a great time to hold a Christmas party, when everyone’s still hanging on to the festive spirit yet venues can often come cheaper and more readily available for bookings. If you’re planning a last minute Christmas gathering, we think these venues would be perfect.
28 West is a stylish lounge bar with a fantastically chilled out atmosphere that makes it ideal for private parties with your nearest and dearest. As such, full hire is available but large parties and table bookings are also an option for smaller, more intimate gatherings. This unique riverside venue sits right by the Thames in Canary Wharf, close to the station of the same name to keep you connected to the rest of the city. The exposed brickwork, comfortable sofa seating and views onto the water make it a great, relaxing space.
Speaking of exposed brickwork, The Steel Yard has it in abundance, owing to the fact that it resides within a series of Victorian railway arches, featuring the distinct architectural style and abundance of character that you would expect from such a venue. There are plenty of extras on hand should you need them, including catering options, a late licence until 1am, a fully staffed bar, theming and decoration assistance, entertainment options, a cloakroom and full technical support with any production needs.
One of the city’s best hidden gems, step into Bodo’s Schloss and be instantly transported to an Alpine lodge in the Alps. The attention to detail with regards to the styling and décor in this themed venue is second to none, lending it an authentic, fun and immersive edge. Room or full venue hire is available, with the party atmosphere and warming, winter lodge vibes being perfectly suited to a festive gathering. Suitable for soirees both big and small, capacities can range anywhere between 20 and 400 people.
Carousel houses 3 distinct floors, each with its own unique charms and appeal. The upstairs space has been designed with Scandinavian minimalism in mind, complete with polished concrete floors, white walls, clean lines and a handmade feature table. Downstairs is a large, warehouse style space with moody lighting and a professional kitchen. Various catering and production options are available and spaces can be combined if need be; just get in touch and a member of the team will put together a bespoke quote.
