Christmas Party 2016

Annually Jamie and Alan set Charlotte (our Office Manager) the task of organising the office Christmas party. The criteria is always the same. The venue must do meat (preferably steak) and serve spectacular wine! Having previously been to restaurants such as Boisdales, Hawksmoor & Goodmans, we always know that we are in for a treat! This year’s choice came from Jamie, who, when wondering the streets of Chelsea in search for our new premises came across a window of meat.

Maccellaio serve ‘Premium red meats from the Italian mountains, served fresh or dry aged in our unique, authentic yet contemporary style...’ needless to say the menu appealed to the Harlequin team, and the restaurant was swiftly booked.

Beginning in the showroom, we turned computers off at 12 on the dot and cracked open a couple of bottles of champagne, this year served in our favourite Saint-Louis Twist 1586 glasses. Jamie and Alan had organised us all a surprise Christmas gift, Hennessey XO Cognac for the boys, and much to our delight an Anya Hindmarch voucher for the girls (As if we needed an excuse to do more shopping!)

Upon arrival to Macellaio we took our seats and Jamie, importantly got the wine ordered, and picked the meat.

Once we were all happily sitting and sipping away, our Secret Santa gift exchange began. All meant to be a silly, and a fun the exchange always provides us with a good laugh. Although of course not being a company of wallflowers, there always seem to be a few who go a little smutty with their gifts!

As you can no doubt see it was a very entertaining lunch, and we even managed to get a neighbouring table involved with the hoop toss. The fancy dress also proved too tempting for those who didn’t receive wearable gifts, and some outfit changes occurred, notably Livvy seemed to be enjoying this the most!

Incredibly full, and with cheeks aching from laughter we settled up and made our way home.

Thank you to both Jamie and Alan for a delightful afternoon of eating drinking and Christmas celebrations!
