2. German Gymnasium, Kings Cross

If you’re looking to inject a touch of European flair to your work Christmas party, German Gymnasium marries classic British Victorian architecture with a menu authored by German-born chef Bjoern Wassmuth. 

For festive celebrations, you can hire out the whole formal mezzanine restaurant in all its seasonal glory. For smaller groups who are still keen for a high-brow Christmas, there is also a semi-private space available, a ground-floor Grand Cafe and an outdoor terrace – although you might want to bring a coat if opting for the latter!

The German Gymnasium is also the annual home to a truly spectacular Christmas tree, sitting snugly beneath the main hall’s 57 feet high ceiling.
