THEMING & ENTERTAINMENT

Approaching the venue the stage is set by a spectacular scene: huge monkey lions sit outside illuminated by fire pits and sconces and look through the towering drapes that conceal the hottest venue in town. As your guests enter they will stand in awe at the spectacular and ancient sandstone atrium that soars above them, where ancient Egypt and Sudan meet the hanging gardens of Babylon – a wonder straight out of the ancient world! Here giant pharaohs, hieroglyphics on sandstone, vines and trailing plants, provide additional drama in a soaring space and discover in the centre, an oasis, complete with fountain, palm trees and banquette loungers. Drapes in jewel tones of lapis, indigo, turquoise, malachite, ochre and carmine provide a decadent opulence.

Above, on the mezzanine, guests are transported straight to Marrakech where hanging lamps, low chaise lounges, footstools and cushions, hookah, and sumptuous wall hangings and drapes, evoke the sights and sounds of a Moroccan Riad. Order a spiced cocktail, a glass of fizz or iced beer from our aged, wooden lattice bar decorated in gold leaf amongst the shadows thrown from hundreds of lanterns, and enjoy the sights and sounds of our souk, full of street vendors and their brightly-coloured merchandise.

Next, enter our stunning main bar that takes its inspiration from the temples of Japan: adorned with cherry blossom, lanterns and origami cranes and where dancers, acrobats and performers delight the crowds. At the giant igloo bar, our talented bartenders pour the crowds champagne, cocktails, icy beers, wines and spirits, all illuminated by the Northern Lights.

Dinner is called and guests are welcomed into the main dining room – and marvel at a riot of colourful hot air balloons in a myriad of colours, shapes and sizes as they float alongside bi-planes. Decorative parasols in vivid colours are suspended as if blown in the wind, hover above the tables. Beautiful table decorations and settings welcome diners to their places as they sit down to a pan-global feast. Between courses, breath-taking acts; Chinese Dragons, Cirque performers and whirling dervishes will entertain the guests as they sit in their own private oasis of light cast from shimmering candles. As the party hots up, the DJ starts his set, and the dancefloor fills as he heralds in the most spectacular Christmas party in town, play on the bumper cars or gamble in the fun casino in the souk.

ENTERTAINMENT

We work with industry-leading choreographers to bring you breathtaking acts that will leave you spellbound. From stunning dancers greeting you and your guests to extraordinarily daring and talented acrobats performing during the night; you will be thrilled, delighted and amazed by our talented artists.

The quality of our entertainment is what sets Smart apart from our competitors. It is this element that adds the flair and drama you will remember, elevating your Christmas party from a fun night out into an immersive, unforgettable event.

This year will see the return of Rockaoke, your opportunity to sing onstage with a specialist live rock band, along with the previously popular vodka luge.
