...Places for Group Dining
“What began as a nervous glance exchanged between a pack of hungry eyes, turned into a frenzy of groping hands. Overcome with desire, they were all desperately grappling for… the last slice of pizza. ”
Civilised or debaucherous, group dining (what else?) guarantees a great night for all.
Perfect for dining in a group, Pizza East Shoreditch offer a sharing menu for groups of 13 or more people whereby a selection of four types of pizza and three desserts can be pre-ordered and shared at their long semi-private table (£25 per person for lunch, £30 per person for dinner). Sharing is encouraged at Asia de Cuba, who offer a number of sharing menus (from £60 per person) showcasing their unique fusion fare in rather large sized portions alongside a complimentary glass of Champagne when booking a table via LadyBlonde.com. And for the ultimate in Sunday feasting, The Grazing Goat offer a set menu (£34 for three courses) featuring platters of roasted meats and accompaniments to share in a relaxed and cosy setting.
To complement a special occasion with spectacular views, OXO Tower is an excellent choice; offering special set menus for parties of 8 or more in both the brasserie and restaurant. For an intimate occasion, the smaller private dining room at Franco's seats up to 18 people, and as a special treat, all groups of 6 or more will receive a complimentary glass of prosecco upon arrival when booking a table via LadyBlonde.com*.
For a group of boys (or girls) with big appetites, The Big Easy has the steak and seafood option sorted. As has Redhook in the City, who are also offering a complimentary glass of Sandhill Crane Californian Chardonnay or Cabernet Sauvignon to groups of 6 or more when booking a table via LadyBlonde.com. Alternatively, Automat offers a satisfying selection of American comfort food amid stylish Mayfair surroundings.
If group consensus commands that the night end on a hedonistic high, the dining experience at supperclub is a sensory delight, where a four-course surprise menu (£45 per person) is accompanied by an eclectic mix of music, live entertainment and very potent cocktails. Or for somewhere a little more low-key (but likely to get equally rowdy), head to Paradise by way of Kensal Green for dinner and 2 hours of free** uninhibited fun in their karaoke room before ending the night on the dance floor.
And bear in mind that if you are going to do it en masse, bookings are essential as most venues will need a little time to prepare themselves. LadyBlonde can assist in all of your group booking needs – call 020 7221 0983 or email LBHQ for table booking enquiries.

** Book a table via LadyBlonde.com for a group of 8 or more at Paradise and receive 2 hours of free karaoke. Available Sunday to Friday until 1st September 2011.
