Art-laden walls and Conran interiors have helped D&D London’s South Place Hotel bridge the divide between Liverpool Street and Shoreditch to establish itself as a hip City hangout. The venue invites you to ‘let your imagination run wild’ for Christmas parties, and then leave the rest to them. Top-floor Michelin-starred Angler – a very British fish restaurant – is a good place to start, with its smart decor and City views. Its bar and adjoining terrace add to the appeal. The first floor’s five function spaces are also up for grabs: taking the Purdey and Steed rooms together makes a handsome space to party in, or 400 of you can take all five.
