A hand holding a gift card for Cardiff. Text reads a gift card to use in over 70, bars, restaurants and shops.

As we come to terms with a Christmas without the office party many businesses are looking for an alternative way to celebrate the festive season with their staff. One great option is to give a local gift card to your teams so that they can enjoy festivities in their own small groups. This gives everyone the freedom to choose but also happily works as one simple purchase rather than a bundle of complex expenses claims so your book-keeper has time to celebrate Christmas as well.

A Gift Card FOR Cardiff is a great option for this – distribute the cards amongst your team and they can choose from a great range of venues to host their own petite party whilst supporting our local businesses at a time when that has never been more vital. As the cards are valid for a whole year they also provide an opportunity for any of your team who are still shielding or keeping their distance from the city centre to celebrate at a later date!

Here’s our round up of gift card Christmas part spots:

Asador 44
If you’re looking for luxury then Asador 44 is the spot for you their specialities include 70-day-dry-aged ubia Gallega chuletón steaks, Segovian suckling pig, Pyrenean milk-fed lamb, whole turbot and seabass (don’t panic, veggie and vegan menus are also available). Sister restaurant Bar 44 is another excellent choice.

The Libertine

Members of your team looking for cocktails rather than a three course meal will have a ball celebrating at The Libertine (please wait for all flame to fully extinguish before attempting to drink)

Cosy Club

Cosy Club is a classic: great cocktail menu; legendary brunch; festive favourites on the Christmas menu. It is all going on and for any members of the team looking take it a bit easier they’ve recently launched a no / low alcohol cocktail menu all of which sound delicious.

Zero Degrees

Is Christmas the time for pizza and beer? Yes! It is always time for pizza and beer especially when the beer is brewed on site like it is as Zero Degrees. We particularly recommend their mango beer and we love the way that their menus suggest complimentary food and drink pairings for you to embrace or daringly ignore.
