ARE YOU STILL UNSURE OF WHAT TO DO FOR YOUR STAFF CHRISTMAS PARTY THIS YEAR? WHY NOT CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS ON THE ICE AND MARVEL IN YOUR SURROUNDINGS WITH A SHARED OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY IN THE DIP-DUNK LODGE AT THE TOWER OF LONDON?
‘IT’S ALL ABOUT SHARING… IT’S THE FESTIVE SEASON AFTER ALL’.
The Tower of London ice rink returns this winter and this year we’ve set up our cosy, festive Dip-Dunk Lodge for you to indulge in some delicious seasonal treats and drinks with our unlimited beers, wines and soft drinks package – isn’t that what celebrating Christmas is all about?
Our Dip-Dunk Lodge launch night took place last week and it’s safe to say we all stayed loyal to the Christmas celebration ritual of drinking generous amounts of wine whilst scrambling around like Bambi on ice. So if ice skating isn’t quite your forte then you’re not the only one, don’t worry no one is expecting Christopher Dean! The beautifully decorated lodge filled with Christmas trees and lights certainly got us all in the merry spirit!
If you’re a smaller group looking for a big party atmosphere, then it’s a fantastically festive way to enjoy your Christmas party in the setting of a historic London landmark. We all feel the pinch at Christmas, whether it be personal or business spend, it’s always an expensive time.
A shared Xmas party can provide a much more budget-friendly appeal, whilst still providing you with the must-haves for a fab Christmas event – entertainment, iconic venue, glam setting, liquor to indulge in, and of course those winter warmers to fill those bellies!
Our trusty chefs most certainly won’t disappoint those grumbling tums with their classic delights with a twist; pulled pork with Dr Pepper in brioche rolls or salt cod croquettes with chopped dill aioli. Or for those with a sweeter tooth; snow-dusted brownies or the trusty mince pie.
This doesn’t however, mean you can’t bring the whole office along to enjoy this Christmassy magical setting, as you can book for up to 100 guests!
You can then relax rink-side in your own VIP area, or if a friendly new face sounds more appealing, mingle amongst the 400 guests filling our ski chalet inspired venue.
And don’t think we’ve forgotten…what would a party be without music? A dance to the DJ’s Christmas classics is an absolutely must at this festivity!
We are hosting parties at the Dip-Dunk Lodge right through until 6th January, so if you’re feeling wrapped up in the stress of getting everyone together for a boogie before Christmas, there’s always the option to beat those January blues and keep that festive spirit going into the new year!
At an extra cost, you can also make your way into the not quite so cosy, but tremendously fun ice bar – where predictably enough, everything is made of ice!
You’ll be kitted out with a cape to keep you warm(ish) and guided into the bar where you’ll find yourself drinking shots from an ice glass surrounded by ice sculptures. You’ll also find yourself posing in an ice chair in front of the photo booth amongst friends to captivate the moment – it’s the simple things!
So if you’re looking for an office Christmas party to remember, wrap up warm, dust off those ice skates and delight in a marvellous party at one of London’s most iconic venues! It’s the perfect way to entertain colleagues and friends, or break the ice with clients in a relaxing and cheerful atmosphere!
