In case you hadn’t heard, we like a party around here. As the days are growing shorter, our thoughts are naturally turning to festive feasts, bracing cocktails and the general silliness that the season heralds. Join us throughout December at Sea Containers for a delicious feast with colleagues and friends or celebrate New Years Eve with us and make it a night to remember.

Join us at Sea Containers this Saturday 12 November for an evening of festivities to celebrate the Lord Mayor’s Show. Our prime location on the Thames River Walk means you’ll be right in the center of the action for the magnificent evening fireworks display. Wrap up in a cosy blanket and enjoy Mulled Wine, Prosecco, Beer or Water on our Terrace. We’ll also be serving drinks -with lids- to take away.

Can’t make it to the Hamptons this summer? You can still get a taste of summer by the sea at our outdoor terrace popping up from May to September on the South Bank River Walk at Sea Containers. Think crisp rose or ice cold Perrier Jouet paired with oysters and lobster rolls. You can linger over a bottle while watching the world go by (we have heaters and blankets for those days when the weather feels more Britain and less Bridgehampton) or take it to go from our beach hut.
