Groups that like to pretend it’s not winter outside will feel right at home at Tropicana Beach Club this Christmas. The ‘rum-soaked tropical oasis’, complete with 30ft palm trees and a Carnival atmosphere, should be all you need to create a memorable festive bash. Exclusive use is the obvious choice here, but semi-private hire is also welcome in one of two areas, each with its own bar. Sit-down two- or three-course meals are an option or you can stay standing for cocktails and the limbo. Alternatively, guests can make the drinks themselves in a mixology masterclass. If it’s really necessary, you can also host a pre-party conference for up to 300 people.
