Christmas is a time for magic and wonder and Bacchanalia is never light on either. This festive period, Bacchanalia will bring added glamour and escapism, with ceiling to floor gold christmas decorations and an opulent festive cocktail menu.
Guests will be greeted by a Bacchanalia-style decorated Christmas tree at the entrance of the restaurant. Once stepping through the doors of the restaurant, guests will be instantly immersed into flamboyance and theatre, as the sound of the goddess-like voices of opera singers fill the restaurant.
As guests are seated, they will be surrounded by Bacchanalia’s iconic Damien Hirst statues, with golden wreaths draping the heads of ancient Greek artefacts along with other maximalist festive decorations.
The menu, crafted by Culinary Director, Athinagoras Kostakos will feature small plates such as Sea Bream Carpaccio with lemon and wild oregano dressing or Charred Beetroots with walnut, almond pesto and Greek yoghurt, followed by a main affair, such as the decadent Strip Loin Tagliata with green peppercorn sauce pickled onion, crunchy potato and Salt Crust Sea Bass with citrus dressing. Finally, conclude your feast with desserts fit for the gods; you can indulge in the generous Bacchanalia Tiramisu which requires a heroic leader to smash the chocolate topping before sharing it amongst the table.
A new menu of festive cocktails has been created including Bird of Paradise, Patrón Silver Tequila mixed with notes of carrot, ginger lime and mandarin and Nightingale, Grey Goose Vodka mixed with Vin Santo, vermouth, chocolate and orange.
For those who wish to enhance their Banquet the way Bacchus, the Greek God of wine would, a sommelier will always be on hand to guide you through Bacchanalia’s unparalleled wine list, boasting over 650 references from ancient, old, and new worlds.
All of this will be enjoyed whilst surrounded by Bacchanalia’s iconic ever standing Damien Hirst statues, breathtaking murals of 2,000 year old Greek and Roman inspired paintings, historic artefacts and Gary Myatt’s floor-to-ceiling mural depicting ‘Romans In Their Decadence’; finished with an infusion of beautiful festive decorations, with a tree destined to be one of London’s best.
