Corporate groups will be able to enjoy afterwork summer evenings in the courtyards or converted tapas rooms.

Groups can choose from two packages: ‘A flight to Madeira’ and ‘Portal’s summer tasting palate’.

The summer tasting package is £24 per person and features a selection of tapas and limited edition summer cocktails, including white port martini; Portuguese mojito; and chilli and ginger pink port martini.

The Madeira package offers a tasting session of the authentic Portuguese drink. For £30 per person, guests can sample five aged Madeiras each with its own matching menu choices, such as quail breast confits with sliced almonds, and grilled squid skewers with lime butter sauce.

The venue completed a large-scale redesign last month. The Portal’s owner Antonio Correia collaborated with architect and interior designer Ken Mackay to convert the Grade II listed warehouse.
