With many of Q Apartments’ customers coming from America, and with Thanksgiving around the corner, we thought we would list the best places to have a Thanksgiving in London this year.
The holiday is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. First celebrated in Plymouth, present-day Massachusetts, in 1621 it is traditionally a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. The traditional Thanksgiving dinner includes a roast turkey with stuffing, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie.
Here in London there is no shortage of restaurants serving up tasty Thanksgiving feasts.
A great place for Thanksgiving is The Blues Kitchen in the trendy Camden. Not only a great spot for a great dinner, it’s also one of the places to go for a great night out. While feasting on your turkey, cornbread, cranberry jelly and corn on the cob, you’ll be treated to some live music. For those who are able to dance after all that food there will be a DJ playing until the wee hours.
Balthazar in Covent Garden is located across from The Royal Opera House. Having first opened in Downtown New York in 1997, the founder Keith McNally has remained as true as possible to the original Manhattan restaurant. Serving up brasserie style food in a spectacular room and a master bartender on the cocktails ensures a fun experience. Last year the bustling Franco-American brasserie by the piazza layed (please review ‘layed’ in this sentence, what is the actual meaning?) on a £55 feast that featured spiced butternut squash soup, roast turkey with pumpkin soufflé, and a traditional pumpkin pie. Expect more of the same this year!
Honky Tonk Clapham next to Clapham Common station, is an American themed vintage style restaurant that includes a restaurant, bar and private dining areas all complete with vintage rock 'n' roll touches and quirky seating. This year they will be serving up a traditional Thanksgiving feast and the bar staff are currently working on a special Holiday cocktail to wash it all down with!
As usual, after the Thanksgiving, everyone shouldn’t miss the Black Friday offers!
And Q, for the very first time, wants to celebrate this habit from US with a Black Friday Weekend. Check it out on Facebook!
