The Great Gatsby Christmas Party in Edinburgh takes you to the decadent, elegant world of the jazz age.

Dress up, grab the feather boa and let your hair down. It’s time to party like it’s 1922!

Expect flapper girls, Charleston dance moves, a 3-course dinner, unlimited drinks, feather boas, red-hot rhythms, casino tables… and feathers. Did we mention feathers?

What to expect at the Great Gatsby party in Edinburgh

Your evening begins with a VIP red carpet welcome. Our fully-costumed flapper girls are waiting to greet you with a glass of Prosecco.

As the bar starts serving your all-inclusive drinks, the ballroom doors open to a beautifully decorated Gatsby-themed event space.

Over a delicious 3-course dinner, our live singer is on stage to entertain you. They’re modern classics… but with a 1920s twist. Name that tune anyone?

Between courses, the flapper girls show off their best Charleston dance moves. Here’s the full Gatsby girl (and boy) line-up performing on stage in London.

There are 2 flapper dancers at our parties. 

That’s a 10 from Craig Revel Horwood!

The all-inclusive drinks are flowing, dinner has been enjoyed… and the entertainment has only just begun.

Our live party band takes to the stage, raising the tempo to dancing point with the best tunes from across the decades.

If you can resist the urge to shake your tail feather, try your luck at the casino tables where professional croupiers are handing out just-for-fun casino chips.

The dress code

There’s no dress code because we want you to relax and have a good time. However, this is a Great Gatsby party! What better excuse is there to dress up?
If you’re stuck for ideas, here are a few Gatsby-inspired suggestions:

For men:

Black tie is a good option, especially with a pocket square (folded handkerchief). Alternatively, a dark jacket with cream-coloured smart trousers and a straw boater. And how about a side parting?

For women:

We’re talking glamour and elegance. Fringed, beaded and sequined flapper dresses, long black gloves, jewelled and feathered headbands, long strings of pearls… and, of course, a feather boa.

"West End Events did a fantastic job of organising our work Xmas party which was Great Gatsby themed. They were responsive to requests and queries and always willing to help. The party was a great success with the team enjoying all aspects, especially the entertainment, including a Charleston dance lesson, flapper girls and casino tables."

FAQs

Do you have any questions? We’ve answered some of the most common questions below. If yours isn’t there, don’t worry. Just call us on 020 7183 3821 and we’ll provide the answer.

About the event

Is this a shared event?

Yes, the main party room is shared. It’s where the 3-course dinner is served, and all the live music and entertainment happens.

Will we have our own table?

Yes, no matter the size of your guest list, you’ll have your own tables. You won’t have to share the table with anyone outside your party group.

Are drinks included in the price?

Yes. Unlimited wine, beer and soft drinks are included in your ticket price. They’re served from 8pm until 12.30am.

For an additional £25 you can upgrade to a premium ticket — 5 tokens, each redeemable for a glass of Prosecco or single spirits, with or without mixers.

Is there a dress code? 

There is no dress code. However, a Great Gatsby party is a great excuse to dress up.

For men, black tie is always a good option. For extra authenticity, you can always try a side parting. It’s very 1920s.

For women — fringed, beaded and sequined flapper dresses, long black gloves, jewelled and feathered headbands, long strings of pearls… and don’t forget the feather boa.

The menu

Will the hotel cater for different dietary requirements? 

Yes they will. Once you’ve booked, we’ll send you a function sheet. Use this to let us know the names and dietary requirements of any guests. We’ll inform the chef so each person is catered for appropriately.

The only exception to this is Kosher food. It can’t be prepared at the hotel and comes via a separate caterer, so it incurs an additional cost. Call us on 020 7183 3821 and we’ll talk you through it.

Booking and admin

How much is the deposit? And when is it due?

To secure your booking, we’ll need a deposit of £45 + VAT per guest at the time of booking. The balance will be due 6 weeks (42 days) before the event.

Can I add additional guests later?

We’ll be as flexible as possible. Please let us know about any changes before 1st November and we’ll do our best to accommodate them. Provided there is availability, we’ll add to your booking —although please bear in mind, we cannot guarantee this.

If you want to add guests, contact us on 020 7183 3821 or email [email protected]. If there’s availability for extra guests, full payment will be required in order to secure the booking.

What’s the minimum and maximum number of guests I can book for?

The minimum is 8 people. The maximum number for this venue is 300.

Is there parking near the venue?

There are 2 car parks just a few minutes walk from the hotel. Castle Terrace is the larger car park, a 5-minute walk away. Grindlay Street Court is a small car park (16 spaces) and is 3 minutes away.
