    Christmas may have taken over the city, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate the signature American holiday here in London! Get prepped for Thursday with our tips on where to commemorate Thanksgiving, expat-style.



    1. Indulge in a traditional meal

    The Avenue on St. James Street has dubbed itself ‘a haven for all US ex-pats.” Enjoy pumpkin soup with gingerbread croutons, roast turkey with homemade Grandma’s gravy and more as part of a three-course meal for £25 per person. The special Thanksgiving menu will be offered for lunch or dinner Thursday. 


    2. Feast on the blues

    Why not pair your traditional feast with the sounds of the finest in Chicago blues? From 7 pm, The Blues Kitchen on Camden High Street offers a three-course festive meal featuring roast turkey, cornbread, corn on the cob and more for £29.95 per person. Plus, blues band The Untouchables will provide the meal’s soundtrack until 1am.


    3. Sample a twist on the traditional fare

    Ben’s Canteen in Battersea and Earlsfield will offer a fun alternative to the typical holiday meal. Try their special turkey and stuffing burger topped with smoked bacon, smoked cheese, and maple mayo from 5 pm. Served with sweet potato chips and pecan pie, the meal costs £16. Add a unique Thanksgiving cocktail or a pumpkin beer for £3.


    4. Go crazy for turkey

    Satisfy your hankering for festive meat at The Diner’s Turkey Takeover. This Thursday every menu item containing chicken will be replaced with turkey. Fancy a turkey caesar salad? How about turkey drumsticks? With locations across London, you’re sure to find a convenient spot to chow down. 


    5. Celebrate with a signature cocktail

    Head to Big Easy, an American style BBQ restaurant, in Covent Garden for a three-course meal starting at £30. Wash down your pit-smoked turkey and pumpkin pie with Squanto’s Swig, the evening’s special whiskey and honey sour blend.


    6. Take your photo with President Obama

    Enjoy an outing fit for a president, and an unconventional Thanksgiving celebration, at Madame TussaudsThe wax museum is running a special 2-for-1 deal for its American visitors now through 28 November. Show your US passport or driving license and receive two tickets for £30.  

    Wherever you choose to celebrate, we hope you enjoy the chance to eat, drink & be merry while giving thanks!
