About Skylon

Description

Set in the iconic Royal Festival Hall, Skylon makes the most of its views over the Thames with floor-to-ceiling windows and a grand, spacious dining room, complete with huge geometric chandeliers. The venue, which is part of the D&D Group, is stylishly decked out in Conran & Partners’ sleek contemporary style with chic booth seats, statement ceiling lamps and wooden floors, making it perfect for large and small Christmas parties. 

Whether you're planning a small private gathering or a big corporate Christmas event, Skylon has a variety of spaces to suit. For the biggest parties, there's always the option of exclusive hire - the whole of Skylon can be yours for a day or a night, accommodating 300 seated guests for a giant festive banquet, or up to 500 for more of a drinks and canapes vibe. The dining room is divided into three sections – the fine-dining and more relaxed brasserie areas are split by a raised bar – with soaring high ceilings and plenty of floor space for smaller, semi-private gatherings. 

For smaller Christmas dinners, there's Skylon's River View reception area - a semi-private dining space that boasts the best riverside views in the house. River View is right in the middle of the restaurant, putting you right in the heart of Skylon's atmosphere, and providing uninterruptied views out over the bustling South Bank. 

Set menus are available for Christmas groups, featuring elegant modern-European dishes with all your favourite festive flavours. There's roast turkey with all the trimmings for Christmas traditionalists, but if you fancy something more elevated, Skylon has you covered with dishes like Cornish crab with wasabi mayonnaise and avocado mousse, and cod fillet with saffron mash and Tenderstem broccoli. There are canape and bowl food menus available too, and the events team are on hand to tailor your Christmas party with any little special touches.
