The 80s Office Party

The Art Of Dining | 80s Office Party

Today’s subject: ’80s Office Parties.

Traditionally characterised by big hair, big ambition, even bigger shoulder pads, and Wham!’s Wake Me Up Before You Go Go, they represented one of the very rare opportunities you had to hit on – or be hit on by, more likely – your co-workers.

And in that respect, thankfully nothing has changed.


What you couldn’t do, however, is simultaneously enjoy five courses of office-inspired food by a Moro-trained chef at that aformentioned office party, including dishes like rosemary and wild mushroom broth with goat’s cheese biscuits; pickled cucumber and braised pork bao with crispy apple and coriander salad; duck brined in tea with pomegranate salsa, cinnamon pilaf and spiced yogurt; and salted caramel chocolate bourbons, for example.

Except now you can.

Brought to you by serial pop up dinner X theatre partiers The Art Of Dining, The ’80s Office Party invites you to step back into the boardroom, where they’ve taken over and set-designed a building; filling it with overhead projectors and pinboards, pot plants, water coolers, filing cabinets and photocopiers for this makeshift office’s ‘10th birthday celebration’. All of which has been sourced from car boot and office clearance sales around London for over four months, and will provide the perfect backdrop for Amanda, the office boss and your irreverent evening host.

It’s running between 24th March and 16th April, and tickets – which you can purchase HERE – are £55.

You’ll also get a welcome cocktail.

Helps to loosen up those inhibitions.
