Christmas at Cosy isn’t the usual dry turkey buffet affair. There’s a real sense of warmth with a heavy dash of opulence – it’s like being at a terribly good house party, in a mansion, owned by a somewhat eccentric relative. Kick up your heels and join us for a very Cosy Christmas.

Situated in Drake Circus The Barcode, head to the Cosy Club for an evening of relaxed dining, drinking and lounging with friends. Dine under the incredible chandeliers – choosing from the delicious menu including a variety of small plates, mains and puddings – or sip on a few fabulous cocktails at the beautifully instagrammable bar.
