If you’re looking to treat your team, friends or family to the ultimate Christmas party this year, The Curling Club offers the perfect mix of apres ski vibes coupled with great food and drinks, plus a fun activity. We’re willing to bet most people won’t have tried curling before, and it’s a surprisingly tricky skill to master, which makes it fun to get to grips with as a group.
How you host your event is entirely down to you, but we’d suggest kicking things off with a touch of healthy competition. The short, fast form of curling on offer is the ideal way to allow everyone a turn on the ice without it becoming drawn out. You’ll speedily zip through the game, with staff on hand to guide you (and crucially verify the winners). Surprise, engaging entertainment is also organised routinely so that there’s never a dull moment, even once you’ve given up on the game.
Packages start from £50 per person for an exclusive area and go up to £150 per guest if you want a VIP section plus extras like an all-inclusive bar, an on-hand photographer, and a dedicated hostess.
Food wise there’s an alpine themed menu and set-ups range from small nibbly bits through to an unlimited choice of the street food grazing menu. Expect lots of carbs, a healthy dose of cheese and of course plenty of charcuterie. To add a little touch of festive fun to your event, there’s also a wintery cocktail menu which takes classic mixes and transforms them into seasonal serves with pretty garnishes.
The Curling Club’s location in Finsbury makes it an ideal mid-point for those traveling across the city, with easy access via road and rail. There is also a second sister site to ensure there’s the ideal spot for everyone, no matter where your office of friendship group is based.
