Informal and relaxed, award-winning SAMA Bankside makes a fun and unique Christmas party venue in the heart of London. Its location on Blackfriars Bridge means it’s easy to get to for guests from all over the city, and the striking interiors are the perfect talking point to help break the ice.
The team here take Christmas and celebrations very seriously, making it their mission to ensure you have a good time. From helping you pick your perfect menu through to advising on entertainment and décor, they’ll lend a hand during each step of your planning journey.
At just £35 per person for a three-course festive menu, this is one of the best value venues in central London for a festive celebration that won’t break the bank. Starters include a parsnip soup with bread and a salmon ceviche cured with orange juice and mulled spices, while mains naturally include the festive mainstay – turkey and all the trimmings. Other more adventurous options span from a confit duck leg with red cabbage and roasted sweet potatoes through to a Jamaican salmon fillet served alongside green beans, new potatoes and a spicy mango salsa.
It wouldn’t be Christmas without a dessert and here there are plenty of options to keep everyone happy. Traditionalists are catered for via a classic Christmas pud, while chocoholics might prefer a rich vegan brownie.
How you structure your day or evening is completely up to you. You could choose to have a drinks reception before your meal with a range of cocktails on offer. These can either be pre-paid for or you can set up a cash bar if you need more control over your spend. After dinner there’s the option to let your hair down and have a good dance in the bar.
Whether you want a table or two for smaller groups or fancy hiring the entire space for exclusive party, any setup is possible.
