The Chelsea Prayer Room

££

We all love a secret bar, and especially one that we’ve got all to ourselves ’til 1am baby. Wherever you do, don’t miss out on the Rhubarb Bellinis, they’re the goat’s bollocks.

The Goat, 333 Fulham Road, London, SW10 9QL

The Jam Tree £-££ This pub has a wicked room called the Bookcase Bar (hidden behind a bookcase) which you can rent for up to 60 people for a sit down dinner (120 if you're just on the booze). It’s got its own table tennis table and bar so you can take over and get challenging your workmates. Menus start at just £15 per person for a hot buffet (cheapskate boss's dream)  - but we say go the whole hog with a roasted pig (minimum of 80 guests, and maybe check with the office veggies first). 13-19 Old Town, London SW4 0JT Village East ££ If your office are all minimalist loving minions, then Village East is the perfect joint, it’s like a Scandinavian styled warehouse with an extensive cocktail list and a private room for up to 14. Go for the Village Feast for £50/person and dine on pork and veal meatballs, confit turkey leg and sherry trifle. Plug in your Spotify and away you go (maybe delete your favourites first, just in case). 171-173 Bermondsey Street, London, SE1 3UW Purl ££ One of the daring original speakeasys, and still one of the best. There's snug lil' coves for small groups, or they can cater for groups of up to 50 people (if more, you might be able to hire out the whole joint). Their cocktails are pretty inventive and they promise their sharing boards will be just as good. Drink Nitro Egg-Nogs and Blue Blazers and we guarantee a lot if sh*t will go down. 50 Blandford Street, Marylebone, London, W1U 7HX Danger of Death ££ Private hire for bookings of up to 50 people. There will be pizzas in full swing, and even custom made menus to suit your office, so if you’re a multicultural office, there will be something for everyone! 202 Brick Lane, London, E1 6SA

Callooh Callay ££ Hidden through a secret wardrobe this bar is as close as you’re going to get to Narnia people. The cocktails in here will turn your world upside down, and your secretary’s Friday night Revolution trips will quickly be abandoned. Hire the Back Lounge for 50-60 people (they have other rooms for different numbers - just message BarChick for all the lowdown). Head here and expect an Christmas party like no other. 65 Rivington Street, London EC2A 3AY Bentley's Oyster Bar & Grill £££ If your office is full of fish heads then spoil them by doing your shindig here. The Crustacea room for example hosts 14 people and is like dining in a Victorian living room, with views over Swallow Street or there's the Rib Room for up to 40 people. 3 course menus start from £49 and will be all about banging seafood - remember to bring some Tic Tacs in case things kick off later with Jared from the second floor. 11 Swallow Street  London, W1B 4DG Behind This Wall For a crew of 60 hire this party basement for £1500 on weekend nights and £1200 in the week and all your food and drink will be covered. Pow! 411 Mare Street, London E8 1HY

Volupté ££ Why not sex things up this Christmas and whisk your office away for a spot of burlesque. If there’s over 60 of you then you can book the Cabaret Salon and have a good old private dose of burlesque, cabaret, mind blowing magic, sexy songs and live circus acts while you drink, eat and get saucy. Grrrrrr. 9 Norwich Street, London, EC4A 1EJ

BarChick’s absolute fail-safe fun night out. Stuff your face with messy BBQ food then load up on cocktails and listen to epic live bands on the sweaty dance floor (a.k.a guaranteed snogs). For a big crew you can hire the downstairs room – which comes with animal heads on the wall and a dodgem. But if there’s not too many of you, we say nab the silver caravan at the back for your gang. Get BarChick Concierge to book you in on 07481 341284. Bundle in, plug in your phone and listen to some bangers while you work your way through the stocked fridge. Then stumble out into the carnage. Loving life. 134-146 Curtain Rd, London EC2A 3AR The Worship Street Whistling Shop ££ This bad boy can accommodate up to 130 of your colleagues (assuming you have that many, Google?) so if you’re looking for a Victorian gin palace/Dickensian theme this year then look no further.

Upstairs is the cocktail den and on weekdays the drinks are dangerously affordable. There’s all sorts of rooms and areas you can hire out - message BarChick for the lowdown. 5 Greek St, London W1D 4DD
Grand Union Brixton £ If you’re all about an outside space (brrrr), book yourself a hut outside. The garden can also be booked if you’re planning a big bash they put up a big cover thing during winter, and there’s a private room upstairs too for a big gang of 200 (you're popular). 123 Acre Lane, London SW2 5UA Tamesis Dock Boat You’re on a boat! No, seriously. If there's around 200 of you, hire this Dutch barge moored permanently between Lambeth and Vauxhall Bridge for a swimmingly swell time aboard this floating pub. If you want a weekend slot for your birthday party you’ll need be turning 25 or more. Tamesis, Albert Embankment, London, SE1 7TP The Social £ If you’re office is bigger than the Shard and you’re looking to entertain them all (without renting a stadium) then the social in Soho can be hired for 250 people. Drinks, dancing and an outside kitchen can be provided for party food – probably a good call. 5 Little Portland Street  London W1W 7JD The Magic Garden ££ If you work in Battersea and your office isn’t full of your average suited and booted types then this is where to party.

Get food and a tea cup punch reception, canapés and bowl foods, and you will be hands-down the coolest kid in the office. 65 Rivington Street, London EC2A 3AY

Blues Kitchen Shoreditch 
£

BarChick’s absolute fail-safe fun night out. Stuff your face with messy BBQ food then load up on cocktails and listen to epic live bands on the sweaty dance floor (a.k.a guaranteed snogs). For a big crew you can hire the downstairs room – which comes with animal heads on the wall and a dodgem. But if there’s not too many of you, we say nab the silver caravan at the back for your gang. Get BarChick Concierge to book you in on 07481 341284. Bundle in, plug in your phone and listen to some bangers while you work your way through the stocked fridge. Then stumble out into the carnage. Loving life.

You’re on a boat! No, seriously. If there’s around 200 of you, hire this Dutch barge moored permanently between Lambeth and Vauxhall Bridge for a swimmingly swell time aboard this floating pub. If you want a weekend slot for your birthday party you’ll need be turning 25 or more.

Tamesis, Albert Embankment, London, SE1 7TP
