Christmas party season is just around the corner and it’s the perfect opportunity to get your team back together and celebrate. After a long year of working from home, it’s important for people to reconnect and create new memories they can look back on.
So, the pressure is on to create an event they won’t forget! Themed parties are a favourite, as they allow people to let their guards down a little and have fun playing along with characters, colours and props. Whether you need a blank canvas space or a venue that has it all, you can choose from hundreds of amazing London locations to plan the most exciting event of the year.
Here are some of the best venues in the city for your corporate Christmas party.
If you have a themed party in mind but don’t want to start from scratch, then this is the place for you! Go for an 80s themed nightclub full of colour and energy. With posters of the decade’s most iconic figures all over the walls and huge Rubik cubes for tables, it definitely sets a festive mood.
Don’t be afraid to channel the 80s vibe by suggesting your guests come with their grooviest outfits and hairdos to shake and shimmy the night away.
A colourful greenhouse is perfect if you’re going for a relaxed, laidback affair. Its bohemian atmosphere is enhanced by braided chairs, quirky prints and mismatched lamps.
