The top places to visit over the Christmas period…

We are counting down the days left for the Christmas break to begin… hopefully we are all starting to relax, and enjoy this festive period. Our social elves at EBM have put together a list of places to go with friends and family whilst you’re in the capital London.

The Nordic Bar
Want somewhere different to go this December? Why not Christmas like the Vikings at the home of all things Scandinavian! Whether it’s a Christmas reunion or casual drinks you are planning, Nordic Bar is a great option. We’d recommend the ScandinaviGIN, a great way of tasting gin of Scandinavia. On your way through to Sweden over to Norway, stopping at Finland and Denmark on the way, no need for airports or luggage! Maybe just have a snack before, during or after (Nordic also have a mouth-watering menu fit for Vikings).

This restaurant is one to visit for all those cocktail lovers out there. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle, you can enjoy a relaxing, casual but chic restaurant and cocktail bar, a place to visit for an undisturbed catch up before Christmas. Pearson Room offers a three course festive menu, so you can relax and dine over some traditional dishes with a view over Canada Square.

Tin Dai Fung – Michelin Star Dumplings
For 5 star Dumplings make your way to the Michelin Star restaurant Tin Dai Fung. If you are out and about shopping use the app, ad join the virtual queue until your table is ready. They’re menu is pretty impressive, with vegan options as well.

Did somebody say brunch?! This is a place to visit in London. If you have seen the pastry table you will know what I am talking about… the food is outstanding, there’s a reason they’ve named themselves Royalty… Pop in to try our range of Story drinks that come all the way from Devon.
