Welcome to London’s lunch party, where outstanding food and quality music are the focus…we pretty much let you do the rest!

The Warm Up

The bar will open and the tunes will start around 3pm. Meet your friends, enjoy a few cocktails and get some general sharpeners down before being taken to your table at about 4.

The Lunch

Wherever we host our parties you can be assured of simple, quality and delicious sharing food offered along with boisterous cocktail menus and discounted Prosecco and special event wines. All this set to a nostalgic party soundtrack ranging from Motown to soul, Indie and house, slowly ramping it up through the afternoon. There is no set menu, no minimum spend and no rush to get off the table. We all start at the same time simply because it’s much more fun that way!

The Afterparty

From 7pm the chefs will stop cooking and our resident DJs will start spinning disco, ’80s electronica and early house into the night. Usually we have a beautiful basement space for the afterparty, sometimes a loft space, but the afterparty will always be on site. After a long, boozy, three hour lunch the lights go down, the music goes up and everyone is primed to party. Any friends not joining you for lunch are welcome at the afterparty from 8 ☺

"Thanks for a fantastic party Lock In Lunch! Everything was perfect and we couldn’t have asked for a better team to run this event for us. We received the best feedback we’ve ever had about a staff event and would love to work with you again. I’d highly recommend you – very well done!"

IG Index departmental party

"I just wanted to thank Olly & Nicole (or Lock In Lunch) for all their help organising a fantastic Christmas party for Pure Sports Medicine. All of our staff absolutely loved it; the feedback was amazing. From the welcome drinks, to the sit-down dinner and after-party, you took all of the stress out of the organisation and ensured the night was perfect. We can't thank you enough! I would recommend you guys to anyone, and will definitely be back next Christmas!"
