Think mouth-watering mince pies, twinkling trees and snugly sweaters. Yes, you’ve guessed it – we’re talking about Christmas! Too early? We think not! Everyone knows Christmas is one of the busiest times of years; from costume making for children’s nativities, to picking the perfect present for your loved one and planning a Christmas party that will wow colleagues (until at least February). We know it’s a time to go go go, trust us, we know! Well, as an early Christmas treat (just for you), we’ve got some insider Access knowledge that will magic all of your work and play worries away.
Not only do our MICE team plan your bog standard boardroom meetings year round, we’re also experts in sourcing the top spots for dinner events, wrap parties, filmed interviews and even private screenings (Elf on repeat with cocktails on tap anybody?) All work and no play, we hear you thinking – absolutely not the case! We can help get you and your colleagues the best deals at some of London’s hot spots for your Christmas party this year – another box to tick off that Christmas list! For a little inspiration for both work and play this December, we’ve short listed some of our go-to destinations for every weird and wonderful event you can think up.
secret screening rooms
The Soho Hotel
4 Richmond Mews, Soho, London W1D 3DH
Situated in the heart of Soho, this luxurious hideaway has not only one, but two screening rooms on offer for private screenings, press launches or corporate presentations! Pick from the larger screening room that can hold up to 100 or for a more intimate affair, opt for the smaller 45 seater space; either way, this is a sure way to WOW guests this Christmas!
wrap parties to wow
The Groucho Club
45 Dean St, Soho, London W1D 4QB
A bohemian, yet decadent escape for arts, literature and media folk in the heart of London’s West End; The Groucho Club is a go-to destination for a whimsical wrap party this Christmas. With jaw-dropping dining rooms, bold bar spaces and luxurious lounges, there are so many spaces to choose from, at this beautiful take on a traditional gentlemen’s club, it’s hard to pick our favourite!
