Planning the perfect Christmas party can be a daunting prospect, especially when it is only September. Every expert event organiser will tell you the earlier you start, the easier it will be! So whilst the season of goodwill may seem a long way off, it’s never to early to begin planning how best to celebrate. For those of you tasked with organising the annual escapade of planned debauchery that is the work Christmas party it can start getting complicated – but fear not! We at Sub 13 have got a few pointers…
No 1: Food
Given what will likely occur it is as well that you plan a decent meal for your colleagues. Whether it is a quick buffet in the office before you set off (try Woods Restaurant) or a restaurant affair (Côte Brasserie, The Ivy or Clayton’s Kitchen get our vote here) eating is definitely not cheating!
No 2: Entertainment
Instead of the usual bar crawl, why not try your hand at something a bit different with the team? Cupcake making (think Great British Bake Off) is increasingly popular – try The Bath Cake Company. You might also consider a cocktail masterclass, here at Sub 13 we offer these from 1pm daily and can cater for groups up to 30. We try to keep it light-hearted, and you will definitely get a few drinks, but also pick up a few tips on how to make some of your favourite cocktails. For more details, click here or call us on 01225 466667.
No 3: Drinking
We have all been there, seeing the colleague who doesn’t drink for the other 364 days of the year finally letting their hair down – no Christmas party would be the same without a good old-fashioned knees up… Luckily in Bath we are spoiled for choice: Circo, Vino Vino, Be at One, new Framptons, The Canary and the Hideout are all great for cocktails. Mind you, we would be lying if we didn’t mention ourselves too! We also have a soft spot for our good friends and neighbours the Common Room! You can reserve an area for your team, and with a chilled out atmosphere
during the week and party central at the weekend – we guarantee you a memorable night. We can even arrange canapés as well – for all the details click here or give us a call.
No. 4: Recovery
Whether any productive work is expected the following day or not, you can’t beat a good breakfast to get you back in the zone. We recommend the lovely Same Same, or if you can’t face the full English, Chandos Deli can be relied upon to set you straight with coffee and pastries!
Hope you find our tips useful, it only remains to say that we hope you have a fantastic time whatever you choose to do. And to wish you all a very happy Christmas and a successful, prosperous 2020.
