This show-stopper of a Christmas party is set in a super-cool converted bank on King Street – now a flamboyant Italian eatery run by a certain well-known celebrity chef. The restaurant is set over three floors – the former Banking Hall, with old booths to dine in; the mezzanine level, with its spectacular view of the whole restaurant, and the original Vault in the basement, which can be hired out just for your group.
Accessed through its original steel door, this private dining room seats 12-18 within walls lined with hundreds of original, numbered safety-deposit boxes. Some of the safe doors may be open and filled with candles, making for a truly unique dining experience. Large groups can also hire the old Bank Manager’s Office or the Secretary’s Office for exclusive dining on the main floor. There may be options for bespoke entertainment – if you are interested, contact your Account Manager.
While the setting is impressive, we know that to have a truly spectacular Christmas party, the food needs to stand out too. The festive menu here is filled with tempting dishes, evoking the vibrancy and passion of traditional Italian cooking. There’s plenty of choice for meat-eaters and vegetarians who want to indulge in a meal that’s simple, yet special. Pasta is a strong point, served in the Italian way, and the burger is to die for. Rustic starters include the likes of arancini (rice balls) and cured meats. Of course it wouldn’t be Christmas without sweet treats, to save rooms for some naughty puddings.
We offer a range of packages with different drink options to suit you, from the excellent house wine to sparkling prosecco. You can order further drinks in advance, or on the day. Prices for this festive Italian feast start at just £16.50 per person.
