Skylight at the Tobacco Dock is the ultimate Christmas party venue. The dedicated events team have masterminded many an award-winning Christmas party and are on hand for every aspect of your event. This iconic building, which is steeped in history, is also excellently located just a 15 minute walk from Canary Wharf and Tower Hill stations, convenient for your guests wherever they are travelling from.
What is particularly unique about a Christmas party at the Tobacco Dock and is sure to wow your guests, is the Skylight rooftop terrace and surrounding spaces for hire. In winter this versatile terrace is transformed into London's only rooftop ice skating rink, so you can partake in some frozen fun whilst taking in the stunning panoramic views of London's dazzling skyline. Surrounding the ice rink area sit the famed heated igloos, seating up to 10 people. These transparent bubbles allow your guests to enjoy the benefits of the rooftop setting whilst keeping cosy and warm.
On the level below the terrace stands the apres ski lodge, whimsically decorated to emulate a cabin in the Alps with bear skins and skis decorating the pine walls, and seasonal poinsettias dotted around. Guests can enjoy a warming mulled wine or hot toddy at the lodge and catch up in front of the multiple fireplaces. If you're after a slightly more casual Christmas party, check out the Dock Street Bar tucked away in the Vaults of the Tobacco Dock. This chic ‘subterranean speakeasy’ features exposed brick barrel ceilings and copper detailing and can fit 65 guests standing.
In terms of logistics, the events team at the Tobacco Dock have got it covered. The award-winning in-house catering team supplies exquisite food to suit your culinary requirements, and there are also AV and branding services on-site for any help needed on the night. Elsewhere, there are long-standing relationships with trusted service providers to sort out everything from flowers to first aid.
