Top 6 Christmas Parties

Marc Burrows, Oct 2017

Christmas is upon us, and London is always buzzing with festive shindigs from the traditional to the ultra-modern; but you can’t have the party season without, well, a party. And you can’t have a party without somewhere to hold it. Where can you throw the ultimate yuletide bash? We’ve got you covered.

Have a Scandi-Christmas at the Southbank Centre – The Southbank always pulls the stops out for Christmas, and this is an excellent opportunity to get in on the act. The Southbank Centre offers rooftop pavilions with views across the river of London’s iconic skyline. Starting at £99 the Centre’s ‘Nordic Christmas’ can offer everything from a drinks reception to a sit-down meal. You can even add a DJ.

Deep-seated desires catered for in every corner. #vintagefurniture

Have a classy Christmas at the Winter House Party organisers Bourne and Hollingsworth, responsible for the legendary Blitz Parties and the Chap Olympiad, have gotten access to one of the most unique Christmas party locations in the city; converting this forgotten Shaftesbury Avenue Grade II listed chapel into a supercool party venue. They can offer a cocktail and canape reception and a banging night of music in the crypt.

Okay, so the diets off! #sweettreats #gingerbread #christmastree #tasty

Have a quirky Christmas with Drink, Shop, Do Tucked away near King’s Cross, Drink, Shop Do have built a reputation for creative and cool events throughout the year, and at Christmas they really go for it. This converted Victorian bathhouse can accommodate up to 250 people and supply them cocktails and cakes. More than that though, DSD throw in a barrage of quirky extras – design your own Christmas jumpers, play Musical Bingo, or bash a Reindeer pinata. 

Have a secret Christmas at Opium – Behind an unmarked green door in Chinatown is a passageway, and at the end of that passageway is exclusive cocktail heaven. Ran by London bar scene veterans Dre Masso and Eric Yu, this is a super-classy venue for a super select gathering. Excellent cocktails are matched with authentic chinese dimsum. It’s on the pricey side, but hey? It’s only once a year.

Have a naughty and nice Christmas with Imaginarium He knows if you’ve been sleeping, he knows if you’re awake… because there’s NO chance of your nodding off at this debauched extravaganza. This event combines a cracking Christmas do with an immersive theatre experience. To say too much would be spoiling things, but expect weirdo characters and an unforgettable Christmas party.
