1st, 7th & 8th Dec
Hilton Paddington, London
The End of Prohibition Christmas Party is in central London and it brings you back to the glamorous, decadent world of the jazz age.
Expect flapper girls, feather boas, casino tables, Deco decor and the red-hot live rhythms of the speakeasy. Plus all-inclusive drinks, of course… Because they’re legal now.
Dressing up is not compulsory, but it’s definitely encouraged. Think Gatsby, shimmering dresses, jewelled headbands and feathers. Lots of feathers.
The End of Prohibition Christmas Party is at the 4-star Hilton Paddington, with excellent public transport links.
The doors open and you’re back in the roaring 20s —golden decor, low lighting, twinkling chandeliers and luxurious Art Deco motifs.
Get ready to strike a pose. Capture a photo of yourself at your fabulous, Instagrammable best.
Over a delicious 3-course dinner, our live singer performs modern classics…1920s style. Name that tune, anyone? The vintage vibe continues between courses as the flapper girls show off their best Charleston dance moves.
The drinks are flowing, dinner has been enjoyed — and the entertainment has only just begun.
The dance floor is open, the party band is on stage and it’s time to shake your tail feather. Take a break from the dancing at the casino tables, or get your bling on with professional glitter face painters.
And don’t forget to visit the photo booth. Those photos will remind you of the best Christmas party choice you’ve ever made.
Our End of Prohibition Party is in central London at the Hilton Paddington. This famous 4-star venue was designed by Brunel as part of Paddington Station’s terminus building. Transport links, both overground and underground, couldn’t be better.
The event space itself is beautiful — a traditional ballroom with high ceilings, chandeliers and a classy blend of Art Deco and contemporary aesthetics. If you fancy a pre-party drink, we recommend 146 Paddington, the hotel’s London-inspired cocktail bar.
The Hilton Paddington is perfect for an overnight stay. It offers over 400 stylish, spacious rooms plus a fitness centre.

Black tie is always a good option, especially with a pocket square (folded handkerchief). Alternatively, go for a dark jacket with cream-coloured smart trousers and a straw boater. And how about a side parting?
We’re talking glamour and elegance. Fringed, beaded and sequined flapper dresses — black and dark red were popular 20s colours — long black gloves, jewelled and feathered headbands, long strings of pearls.
And one thing to bear in mind… In a private dining room, you’ll miss out on the live music and dancing entertainment over dinner.
