You can’t have Christmas in London without the Southbank Christmas market. Forget Winter Wonderland, everything you need is right by the Thames, moments away from Waterloo station.
As soon as November arrives, the air around the serviced offices Waterloo suddenly has a sweet smell- donuts and hot chocolate mixed with perfectly spiced mulled wine. Whilst we LOVE wandering the Southbank in the dark winter evenings we admit that even at the last minute, a tour of the tat doesn't really qualify as an office Christmas party. So here are some alternatives that will keep your employees happy, and might even mean you get to swing by the market on your way to the event!
Tacos not Turkey at Wahaca
For those that like to go rogue, Wahaca is leading the revolution against the usual turkey and brussel sprouts. Take off your ties and heat things up with a Mexican sharing platter and some tequila based fun. There are two revolutionists menus to choose from, all with vegetarian and vegan options. Perfect if your team’s a little on the rowdy side and wants to take advantage of all the hard liquor on offer, or if you’re looking for something less formal.

The White Hart
What this single room pub on Cornwall Street lacks in space it certainly makes up for in quality of food. If their Sunday lunches are anything to go by, the White Hart’s Christmas menu is sure to be utterly delicious. Packed on any given day, we can’t guarantee there will be the opportunity to secure a booking with their Christmas buffet packages, but put this on the list if your office Christmas affair is less party, more pints and munch. The ‘Festive Frolics’ package includes two bottles of fizz, six bottles of wine, 12 bottles of beer, perfect to start off a night on the town. For those less interested in booze, try your luck at securing a table of food, we guarantee it’ll be worth it.

All Bar One
Some people may scoff, but when you pick a chain, you know what to expect in terms of food, drinks and service. All Bar One offers festive options from buffets, sit down three course meals, as well as drinks and nibbles packages. A spacious bar area allows for large parties, as well as providing hope that if you haven't yet booked, there might be room to accommodate your party last minute. If you’re looking for a no-frills not-compromising-on-taste option you could do a lot worse than All Bar One, especially as their cocktails are particularly mouthwatering. The best bit? If you’re booking for more than 20 people, the events manager will take care of all the details for you. So sit back and sip on a little something something...
