The latest Christmas party trend is to do activities and London has it all: from bowling to axe throwing. It brings people together, shows people’s inner competitiveness and secret talents or lack thereof. Yes, there’s no two ways about it, in London activity based Christmas parties are the way forward and here we bring you five ideas perfect for your 2017 Christmas party.
1. Wine Tasting
New Street Wine, near Liverpool Street Station, has expert sommeliers offering bespoke wine tasting packages. Why not taste an exquisite range of fine wines which can be accompanied by cheese platters or various other bites. The building use to be an 18th Century warehouse for the East India Trading Company, and has a light and airy feel. Another of D&D groups offering expert wine tasting is Pont de La Tour, a restaurant overlooking the River Thames near Tower Bridge. The wine tasting would be held in their premium wine cellar.
Flight Club, flinging darts in bars back into popularity. This is the ultimate dart bar; it’s trendy, cool and has automated scoring… so no cheating. This bar hits the bulls eye; craft beers, cocktails and their easy pizza boards all of which makes the ingeniously named Flight Club the place to be in the City for your Christmas party.
All Star Lanes has reinvented traditional bowling lanes leaving jars of smarties and smelly shoes a thing of the past. These refreshed bowling lanes with an American twist; enjoy craft beer and American snacks and compete to be bowling champion.
