Christmas at The Beach House.
Pineapples and palm trees are replacing the traditional festive fayre at one of the north east’s newest eateries.
The Beach House bistro, which recently opened overlooking Roker beach, Sunderland, is giving Christmas 2014 a tropical twist, with a special, themed party night running three times per week.
The venue, operated by 1879 Events Management, will host a Hawaiian Christmas Beach Party every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening between November 27 and December 20 – and flowery shirts and grass skirts are highly advised.
Each event, open to both corporate and private bookings, will include a mix of themed background music, as well a range of colourful decorations and a complimentary Hawaiian style cocktail to enhance the carnival mood.
The typical turkey and trimmings will be replaced with a feast of Hawaiian treats and delicacies, including starters of Saimin Soup or South Pacific seafood cocktail served in a coconut shell.
For main course, guests will enjoy sharing platters of pulled pork, chicken teriyaki, beef short ribs, seafood kebab, skewered chicken and ham and pineapple, all served with a selection of salads and sweet potato wedges.
This will be followed with a choice of either tropical fruit pancakes or roasted pineapple for dessert.
Tickets for the Hawaiian Christmas Beach Party, priced at £30 per person, are limited and available now by calling 0871 911 1555 or emailing Thebeachhouse@1879Events.com. Doors will open at 7pm on each of the respective dates.
The Beach House - the first venue in the North East to be owned and operated solely by SAFC subsidiary 1879 Events Management - will also be available for private hire throughout the festive period, with organisers able to opt for the Hawaiian Beach Party or a selection of other pre-planned or bespoke packages.
