Festive dining: Christmas is coming

’Tis the season for mulled wine, mince pies, mistletoe and of course, the always highly anticipated Christmas dinner.

If you’ve been tasked with organising this year’s festive feast, panic no more. Join us for a merry good time in Glasgow this Christmas and celebrate the season of merriment in style.

Indulge in a Christmas meal to remember and, if you need it, sink into one of our dreamy beds for a great night’s sleep afterwards. Here’s what you need to remember before Christmas creeps up on us.

Plan early

You may still be in your flip flops and applying layers of SPF, but it’ll soon be time to dust off your knitwear ready for the winter festivities. That’s right, Christmas is coming once again.

This means it’s also time to get your Christmas dinner plans locked in – the sooner the better. Missing out means you might be left with only your local pub as an option, and nobody wants that. Make sure you get a date in everyone’s diary as early as possible, then start the all-important task of finding a venue.

The Festive menu

At Apex City of Glasgow, enjoy two courses for £23.00 per person, or three courses for £27.00 per person. This includes a glass of prosecco and tea or coffee, available from 1 December to 24 December for lunch or dinner.

Starter

Roast butternut squash and chilli soup
Pork and black pudding terrine, red onion chutney, cress salad

Main

Traditional roast turkey, root vegetables, triple cooked roast potatoes, chipolatas, thyme jus
Pan seared salmon fillet, creamy mash, charred tender stem broccoli, chive beurre blanc
Carrot Osso Bucco, celeriac puree

Dessert

Traditional Christmas pudding, brandy crème anglaise
Chocolate orange mousse cake, dark chocolate sauce, chocolate and hazelnut brittle

Set your out of office

No one wants to spend a Christmas party in the cramped office canteen, with a radio pumping out Bing Crosby’s ‘White Christmas’ in the corner.

Find a venue which is easy to get to, and make sure there’s the option for taxis home at the end of the night.

Located in the heart of Glasgow’s Bath street, just a short sleigh ride from all the best spots for Christmas shopping, Apex City of Glasgow is the perfect location for your 2019 Christmas meal.

Private festive dining is available at Apex City of Glasgow throughout December for groups of between 30 and 100 people.

Whether it’s a bit of festive shopping with friends or a Christmas catch-up with colleagues, our Glasgow Christmas dining offer will see you through the season.

The space

A city centre venue with all the festive feels is exactly what you need to launch into a memorable Christmas do.

Our Lounge Bar & Restaurant is well-suited for your Christmas dining needs. Available for exclusive hire, this cosy space can be transformed to accommodate up to 100 guests.

And if you’re looking for somewhere to celebrate the big day itself, Apex City of Glasgow will also be serving a scrumptious Christmas Day feast between midday and 5pm, from just £42.50 per person.

Decide on a theme

No Christmas soiree is complete without a theme to tie it all together – it’s your chance to get creative.

Perhaps it’s Christmas past, or novelty hats. Or you could even plan an activity to really get everyone involved: a murder mystery experience dinner or wine tasting, perhaps.

Our team know how important it is to make sure the menu is both delicious, and varied, making sure there’s something for everyone.
