Black Dog Ballroom for Christmas parties

Here's a super-cool bar to have your Christmas celebration in

Published on October 8th 2010.


Black Dog Ballroom for Christmas parties

The Black Dog Ballroom isn't the most obvious choice for a Christmas get-together. This underground diner-bar is named after Winston Churchill's nickname for his depressive disorder, and the ambience is more speakeasy-era NYC than bright and festive party spot.

At the height of the Christmas build-up, you'll be desperate to escape all that enforced jollity. An office do somewhere cool rather than cheesy will be a relief.

But believe us, at the height of the Christmas build-up, you'll be desperate to escape all that enforced jollity. An office do somewhere cool rather than cheesy will be a relief.

Black Dog Ballroom will be making concessions to Christmas in the form of a buffet menu featuring pigs in blankets, smoked salmon blinis with horseradish crème fraiche, mini turkey burgers with cranberry relish, and festive pizza with turkey, stuffing and cranberry relish.

It's a bit of a bargain at £9.50 a head before 5pm and £12.50 a head after and it means you can get your Christmas fix without having to tackle a full-on Turkey dinner. Or you can just order from the main menu which will have guest appearances from the festive pizza and Christmas turkey burgers.

Anthony Fielden of The Northern Quarter Restaurant oversees the food, and the cocktail menu is an inspiration to other bars. There are also draught beers, pool tables, and a secret room that's ideal if you want a space to yourselves for your party.

And if you want to make it into a bit of an event, you can book a cocktail masterclass there for your group. They cost £20 a head and include drinks – a good way to make sure everyone starts enjoying themselves as quickly as possible.

Black Dog Ballroom is underneath Afflecks Palace in the Northern Quarter. If your office is the type that likes to drink hard when they go out, they'll be pleased to know that it's open until 4am.

The best nights for Christmas parties often fill up way in advance though, so it's worth booking this one sooner rather than later.
