Rio Rocks!

This December Derby’s flagship Christmas Party venue; The Roundhouse, transforms into the bustling city of Rio de Janeiro; Brazil’s most iconic party destination. A city where intoxicating energy lives hand in hand with a deep cultural history and an overwhelming zest for life.

As you leave the winter’s night behind and approach the iconic Roundhouse venue, intoxicating energy flows around the colourful landscape. You explore the start of the evening with friends and colleagues to see what the night has to offer. Spectacular multi-coloured tin houses line the street, sheltering local traders offering you delicious canapés. Current party tunes fill the air as you make you way to one of many bars for the evening’s first drink!

The Cocktail and Gins bars, framed by vibrant makeshift favelas, tempt you closer to the charismatic mixologists offering you delicious drinks created to order. As the music levels rise, beautiful dancers come to life, their lithe bodies pushing the boundaries of possibility in mind-blowing spectacles of skill, distortion and contortion…

You are beckoned to continue your journey and take your seats in the restaurant. The lights dim, the stage bursts into life and the ultimate party experience begins. Performers fly, spin and twist as you enjoy a succulent three-course dinner, fine wine and good company.

As the last spoonful of dessert is devoured, the atmosphere cuts to an explosion of light and sound that marks the beginning of a dazzling finale. When the legendary stage show comes to a climatic end, the power passes to the DJ and the dance floor passes to you! An uplifting blend of classic party tunes and modern-day hits instantly lure you onto the floor to begin dancing the night away.

Elsewhere in the building a raft of after dinner entertainment has appeared to take your party experience into the early hours. Fresh coffee and chocolates are served, fairground stalls open, roulette & blackjack tables come to life and the dodgems begin to whirr! Dance the night away on the electric dance floor, catch up with friends at the Champagne and cocktail bars, or find a quieter area to sit and enjoy a drink. And don’t forget to sample a midnight breakfast roll!

As the evening draws to an unwelcome end, memories of a fun filled night remain as you reflect on a truly spectacular party!
