One of the most difficult parts of organising a work Christmas party is finding somewhere that everyone can get to. Well, with Ambassadors Bloomsbury you certainly don't have that problem. You'll find this contemporary hotel, restaurant and events space in the heart of Bloomsbury, just a short walk from both Euston and Kings Cross stations, which makes life a lot easier for those coming from around and out of London.
The hotel itself is housed in a beautiful, historic building that will no doubt impress your guests. Think cream-toned stone steps leading up to a column-flanked entrance, with huge windows and a stunning range of stone and brick architectural details.
Inside, the vibe is sleek and modern, with clean lines and neutral colour palettes, occasionally accented with richer hues and sumptuous furnishings. For your festive event, there's space to occupy a multitude of meeting rooms, from those smaller to larger. Capacity starts at 10 and goes right up 220, so there's plenty of room for the whole company. Meeting rooms are neutral spaces with a blank-canvas feel, so you can decorate the space and bring it to life with your own festive theme.
Or, enquire with the team about taking over the restaurant. With design-lead lighting installations hanging overhead and a sophisticated feel, this would also be a fabulous place for a party. In-house catering is provided no matter which space you choose and while there might be different options for Christmas, the restaurant usually takes an Italian-fusion approach.
To give you an idea of the kinds of dishes that are usually on offer, previous starters have included Scottish lobster arancini with saffron mayo, while mains might look like beetroot risotto with walnut, kale and goats cheese, or something from the grill, such as corn-fed chicken, salmon or rib eye from a Surrey farm.
