Tis the season to treat yourself. You’ve dealt with a million lockdowns, expertly chosen the best Christmas presents, somehow tolerated the British government and now the holidays are here. It’s time to show yourself some appreciation for the tough year you’ve had. 

How could you go wrong with food? Taking that first bite and feeling the flavours almost fizzling on your tongue. Every bite is just as good as the last but in different ways as you explore new flavour combinations. When you finish you lie back, rub your tummy, and feel… content. Like everything is right in the world. So what do you say? Are you ready to book your December dining experience? 

If so, here are some unreal dining experiences that are going down this December…



A Night with the Bierkeller Schunklers

When: Thursday 23rd December 

Where: Yard and Beyond, Stourbridge

If the video is anything to go by, this might just be the best event on the list. The vibes are simply unbeatable, everyone has a laugh, there’s great music and food vendors so there are plenty of choices available. Tickets are just £25 each which includes entry, a stein of beer or a cocktail, food, a shot and fantastic live entertainment from the oompah band the Bierkeller Schunklers. This lively event goes down on the 23rd of December so snap up your tickets now.

Dom Bryan Brunch - Boxing Day

When: Sunday 26th December

Where: Lucarelli Restaurant (The Mailbox), Birmingham

At one of Birmingham’s newest, most luxurious Italian restaurants will be the Boxing Day brunch of a lifetime. Shake your way down to the Mailbox and burn off all those winter calories as Dom Bryan spins vibey tunes alongside Shaqfive, Charli C, Craig Reckless, Fourty, Keyrah, and Ayycee, while your host for the evening, MC Kie, keeps everyone feeling the tunes, the booze and the food. Sounds like a dream come true.

Christmas Party Nights

When: Thursday 23rd December 

Where: Players Lounge, Billericay

Go big or go home, right? It seems Players Lounge in Billericay, Essex takes the saying pretty seriously because there isn’t a single thing their huge Christmas Eve Eve party is missing. With a DJ, festive platters, live entertainment, an entire 60 minutes of unlimited prosecco, cocktails or beer, and even additional virtual golf simulator packages available, there isn’t much more they could squeeze into this fun-filled evening. We can’t think of a better way to get in the festive spirit.

Brunch UK Garage Manchester Boxing Day

When: Sunday 26th December

Where: Bierkeller Manchester, Manchester

Celebrate the culture of UK garage in style at this rowdy brunch. With street food and tunes blaring, it’s the perfect sequel to Christmas day. Good luck actually staying seated at this brunch as they tear through UK garage, bass, speed garage, 90s classics and current tracks on high stacked bass bins and speakers. These heavy-weight UKG lovers have put on some of the wildest most beloved UKG brunches in the UK so if this is your vibe, now’s your time to shine. And if Manchester is a bit of a trek, no worries. They’re hosting events in Birmingham and Nottingham too.

New Year's Eve at Ole Ole 

When: Friday 31st December

Why not shake things up a bit and try a different, European New Year’s Eve? Ole Ole is a beautiful Spanish restaurant in Hove and it’s inviting you for a slightly different New Year’s Eve. Tuck into delicious, traditional Spanish food while an impressive, live flamenco show sprinkles your night with some passionate entertainment. You’ll be greeted with a cocktail on arrival and a DJ will keep the party going until the early morning hours. A perfect introduction to the new year.

NYE at Hafla!

(This embedded post has since been removed)

When: Friday 31st December 

Where: Hafla Hafla, Liverpool

New Year’s Eve isn’t all about going out and regretting half the rubbish you said and waking up the next day feeling like you should be on life support. A civil, delicious, high-end meal sounds much better. Hafla Hafla is offering six mouth-watering courses for just £50 this NYE. The exact menu can be found on the event page but we’ll warn you, it’s unreal. Vegetarian options are available as is a wine pairing and special New Year’s Eve cocktails. To be honest, we’re considering it ourselves.

Winter is the season of Christmas festivities. But it’s also the season to stuff your face until you can’t move and fall asleep with sauce around your mouth. Nothing beats the satisfying feeling of eating slightly too much. And at these events, you can do just that but with brilliant entertainment, great music and good vibes all while being surrounded by the people you love. And you have the added bonus of not having to do the washing up. Result.
