The Manhattan Club is hosting a series of indulgent lunch and dinner banquets this festive season with their speakeasy pop-up, Christmas in Harlem.
Let us take you back to an era of illicit drinking and gambling dens. You will be taken on a gastronomic tour through 1920’s New York City.
Each event will open with an exquisite cocktail and canapé reception. Guests will then feast on a selection of the finest foods inspired by real 1920’s menus and given a modern Manhattan Club twist by our team of chefs.
Dinner will be accompanied by exciting entertainment in form of magic, music, craps, 1920’s dress-up and a photo booth, all the while getting a chance to imbibe the finest moonshine that the era had to offer.


Prepare to be whisked off to the 1920s where guests will drink authentic 1920s cocktails, with a modern twist, play craps, dress up for photos and enjoy the spectacular talents of illusionist Katherine Mills.

Established over a decade ago The Manhattan Club started out with a simple concept:

“To collect members with an appreciation of innovative food, fine wine and the world’s best spirits”  – Mark Britton

After cocktail classes, taster menus from Michelin star chefs and an evening of Hennessy cognac and chocolate, The Manhattan Club has grown into an events company which aims to spoil, while educating its members and guests with an array of events built around the foundations of that original concept.
