The Christmas party season is a chance to let your hair down after a tough year – nothing beats a well-earned evening of shenanigans with your friends, family or colleagues – especially after the year we’ve all had.
There are many places around Victoria, Cardinal Place and Nova where you’re guaranteed to set up the party of the year. We’ve gathered together some ideas below.
The Ivy Victoria
Famous for going all-out at Christmas, The Ivy Victoria is just the place for the ultimate festive bash.
Enjoy a couple of Christmas cocktails while you feast on the seasonal dishes – all the while, the unbeatably-lush surroundings add just the right amount of sparkle to proceedings.
The party is very much on at Bill’s this year, where the festive set menu looks incredible. It includes a starter of smoked salmon mousse, avocado and crayfish salad, a main of pancetta wrapped turkey with all the trimmings. And for dessert, panettone bread and butter pudding with cinnamon-spiced vanilla custard.
The Christmas menu arrives in November, but you can book now.
Rail House Café
There are lots of ways to enjoy your Christmas party at Rail House Café this year, including a set group menu, a sharing feast menu, and bespoke drinks packages all available from 29th November.
The Christmas Feast menu does not disappoint! Whether you’re after a traditional turkey main with all the trimmings, or a vegetarian truffled portobello & sweet potato Wellington, there are a whole range of options for each of your two or three courses.
All Bar One
After a 2020 to forget, All Bar One says it’s keen to make up for it this Christmas.
As well as excellent traditional turkey and vegetarian options, don’t ignore the festive burger. It features chargrilled beef burger topped with BBQ pulled turkey, smoked cheddar and cranberry sauce, served with sage & onion seasoned fries! View the menu here.
Meanwhile, the festive buffet will be a new addition in 2021, with classics like pig in blankets alongside a whole host of amazing veggie and vegan options.
For something a little different this year, why not take the party to Sticks‘n’Sushi?
This uber stylish restaurant was decorated with a sleek, scandi feel, but your tastebuds will be going straight to Tokyo with an unforgettable Japanese menu. Relax and enjoy a menu of vegetables, meat, fish – and of course high-quality sushi.
There will also be a special Christmas menu! The ‘Sticks’n’Santa’ menu, available from 1st December, includes among other things tempura shrimps, smoked salmon tartare captured from the adjacent waters, delicious topped maki rolls, and crispy sticks

For a full-scale Christmas feasting extravaganza, you can't go wrong with Stoke House.
