Located in Fitzrovia and available for exclusive hire, The Mandrake is an immersive and unique spot to congregate with friends and colleagues during the festive season. Whether it’s a private dinner in dramatic surrounds, a drinks party in an Amazonian-inspired setting or even a bespoke cinema screening, this central London venue has a space to suit you.
The South American-inspired restaurant YOPO boasts trendy décor and a wide selection of set menus for parties of up to 54 people to indulge in. With original artwork covering the walls and a spectacular sprawling tree installation in the centre, the unique interiors make for a fun and unique setting for your Christmas party. Choose from South American-style dishes such as duck empanada with sweet potato and aji amarillo, celeriac cooked with truffle and pumpkin and sorrel sorbet with pistachio and clementine. It might not be a traditional Christmas meal, but it’s sure to delight and impress all your guests.
For smaller gatherings, the Glasshouse overlooks the Jurema terrace and can be booked for groups of up to 10. It’s filled with exotic plants and would serve as a great spot for a memorable private dinner. Indeed, if it’s an intimate sit-down dinner you're planning, then the purpose-built private dining room seats up to 20 and boasts red-lacquered walls and ceilings for an immersive dining experience.
The courtyard in the middle of the hotel features two huge Tasmanian Ferns that provide a dramatic focal point while you sip on expertly-made cocktails. But if you don’t fancy bracing the cold, then take refuge inside Oshun Cabana, which has been carefully designed to evoke the colours and spirit of the Amazon – just indoors.
If things get a little too wild (the restaurant has a late-license after all), the Mandrake Hotel's decorative and arty rooms are just a few steps away if the journey home is a little bit too much for you to stomach at the end of the night.
