As the nights draw in and the temperature drops, the festive season is fast-approaching. For many corporates, particularly as Christmas celebrations were called off last year, it poses a question: where to take clients and colleagues for end of year drinks. For those based in Kensington and Chelsea, there are plenty of options on our doorstep.
Claude Bosi Oyster bar
Conveniently located below Argyll’s Michelin House workspace, this classic neighbourhood spot serves up fresh oysters and other seafood delights with an excellent wine cellar on offer. Those in the mood for something even more upmarket need simply to walk upstairs to Bosi’s two Michelin-starred restaurant.
The Cadogan arms
Fans of this much-loved Chelsea institution rejoiced when it finally reopened its doors this summer. The team behind the refurbishment have placed new emphasis on its culinary offerings, making The Cadogan Arms the ideal choice for a long festive lunch with clients.
Chelsea physic garden
For those looking to celebrate the holiday season outdoors, the Chelsea Physic Garden’s Annual Christmas Fair returns from Thursday 25 – Sunday 28 November. This year’s fair will host over 100 curated stands, showcasing the finest independent suppliers within the beautiful surroundings of the Garden.
Finally, for those in the area who might have left gifts for colleagues to the last minute, Pavilion Road can offer salvation. Just a few minutes’ walk from our Sloane Street and Pont Street workspaces, it is filled with boutique stores, florists and wine shops. A gift from one of its local, independent sellers could be the ideal secret Santa solution.
