Christmas Party Venues

Christmas party-planning is no mean feat. With the ever-looming threat of a poorly churned out three-course dinner at a painfully quiet venue where the conversation is as dry as the turkey, the stakes are high. What you need is a lively location where you can drink, dine, dance and be merry; making it a festive event for everyone to remember (for all the right reasons). To help you along the way, we've created a list of the very best party venues in London, from hidden cocktail bars to immersive experiences and swanky high-end restaurants. We apologise in advance for the headache the next morning...
