Tap East

Perfect for the beer connoisseurs among your group, Tap East will satisfy their craving for specialist craft beers.

Tap East is a beer bar and microbrewery right next to Stratford International Station (handy for getting home at the end of the night!).

They have a regular changing line-up of 16 Tap East and guest draught beers as well as over 100 bottled beers from around the world.

They even hold regular Belgian beer tastings on Sunday evenings so you can try a taste of something new – find out more on their events page.

The Print House Bar

If you’ve got a mixed group of colleagues who can’t agree on what they fancy, take them to the Print House bar and kitchen.

They offer a tasty evening menu featuring all your favourite pub specials as well as a festive menu and Sunday menu and of course a wide range of cocktails, wines and beers.

They take bookings too, so perfect if you’ve left the party planning a little late! Find them at 133 High Street, E15 2RB or book a table online.

Roof East

Popular with a younger crowd and for those who don’t mind braving the cold, Roof East is a great spot for a pre-Christmas night out.

Open until the 21st December, head here for a game of curling, crazy golf, pool or their various arcade games on offer. Throughout the week they also have events like a pub quiz, music bingo and more.

For those with a crafty side, they even have some one-off festive events including live Santa art class and festive caricature classes. Check out their latest events on their website.

They’ve even introduced some festive tipples for the next few weeks including warm cocktails, flasks of Aunt Mildreds mulled wine, hot buttered rum (think Butterbeer!) and more. 

You’ll find Roof East above the Stratford Shopping Centre, 7 & 8 Stratford Multi Storey Car Park, E15 1BB.

The Lauriston

From the outside, The Lauriston looks like any other pub. But inside you’ll find a lively crowd of locals and a great line-up of entertainment throughout the week.

The perfect place for a Christmas party, they offer DJs, karaoke parties, pub quizzes and they show live sport. They’re well known for their pizza too, so make sure an order a couple when you visit. To see what’s on check out the latest on their website.
