If you want to get in ahead of the crowds and snap up a booking for one of London’s newest venues for 2016, then take a look at the following list.
Wardour Street Gallery is an ideal choice of venue for any corporate event, from product launches to press days to company parties, and just about anything else in between. As a contemporary art gallery, it has a distinctly modern feel courtesy of the reflective black floor, high ceilings and cutting-edge architecture, with a spacious, immersive interior that can accommodate up to 500 guests at a standing reception or 100 at a seated dinner. Found in the heart of Soho, it’s close to great transport links, including Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square and Oxford Circus.
Beagle brings a sense of cultural heritage and a timeless British charm, being located within 3 restored railway arches. This gives it a Victorian vibe, with the arched ceilings and extensive exposed brickwork very much associated with the times. It’s so beautiful in fact that the building has been awarded several design awards for outstanding interiors, so you know you’re getting the best of the best. Within stumbling distance of Hoxton station, with Old Street and Shoreditch High Street also close by, it’s well connected to both the rest of London and further afield.
Suitable for both regular and one-off events, 71a is a gallery and multi-purpose event space that is comprised of a screening room, gallery and workshop, with a separate bar and lounge for socialising. This makes it great for both private and corporate events of all types and styles. The white walls give the space a modern feel, whilst the extensive wood and accents of exposed brickwork bring character and warmth. Found in Shoreditch, within the trendy east of London, the closest transport links include Old Street, Liverpool Street and Shoreditch High Street.
The Cookhouse is perfect if you are looking to organise an event within the world of food and drink. This open-plan kitchen and dining space can be hired for demonstrations, cooking masterclasses, tastings, chef’s table dinners, food presentations and even as a beautifully modern filming location if you are producing a TV show or cook book. The maximum capacity is an intimate 20, with dining space for just 10, making it ideal for events with that personal touch, and being close to the Thames, it’s just a stone’s throw away from London Bridge.
Whatever the occasion, be it for business or pleasure, the events team on hand at Drake & Morgan at King’s Cross have got you covered, working alongside you to ensure you get everything you need from the venue and a stress-free event when the day itself comes. With a private dining room and kitchen pods available for hire across several floors, you can either hire an individual area or the entire venue, depending on your needs. This allows you to have both intimate and large scale receptions here for anywhere up to a whopping 1000 guests.
