The Ins and Outs of Putney: December
Got all your Christmas shopping done? Nope, neither have we – but that’s ok because it’s sort of a tradition to do it all last minute, right? With our new serviced office space, Putney now has a growing number of start-ups and freelancers working in the area. The festive party season is upon us and if you’re currently lacking a little festive spirit, then Putney has lots of it. Here’s what to see and do in the area in December.
Where to eat
December is truly the best month of the year. You’ll be guzzling down gingerbread lattes and orange hot chocolates while having all of the festive food, mince pie anyone?
As well as our office space, Putney has lots of great spots for eating out. If you love sugar, spice and everything nice, a trip to Blabar is a must. A Nordic paradise, this Scandinavian themed spot serves up warm cinnamon buns, Swedish coffee and open-top sandwiches aplenty.
If you’re still looking for a place to host a festive dinner or don’t fancy cooking on Christmas Day, then The Jolly Gardeners is serving up a range of festive menus with all of the trimmings included.
Where to go for a drink
An award winner of designmynight, Tequila Mockingbird Putney is an intimate bar that would be a great stop off on a night out. Enjoy 2-4-1 cocktails and then party until 2am while the DJ entertains you with some festive tunes. Expect to see a few drinks specials over the Christmas period.
If you fancy a drink with a view, The Boathouse is a fantastic spot overlooking the river and has both indoor and outdoor seating. Wrap up warm and enjoy a mulled wine or cider that they’ll have on offer throughout December. If you’re a fan of live music or comedy then you’ll love The Half Moon – a long established and respected live music pub and food house, it plays host to plenty of acoustic music, comedy and much more. They’ve also got a couple of regular Quiz Nights happening across the month, so it’ll be a great distraction from the thought of working on Monday.
What else is going on?
There’s nothing like a good old-fashioned market to get you in the mood for Christmas and Putney’s regular Saturday market will likely be jam packed with locals and tourists to the area. Bringing fresh, artisanal produce to Putney High Street, you can find all of your food and gift inspiration here. The market can be found in St Mary’s Church Square every Saturday between 10am-3pm.
For a traditional celebration through song, join the Epsom Chamber Choir on Saturday 8th December for a free choral concert. There’s likely to be a few classics to hum along to, so grab your friends or family and enjoy an evening of music without having to spend a penny.
If you’re looking for a small office for rent, Putney could be a great place to develop your business in the new year. Why not check out our offices and see which ones suit your company’s needs?
