If you are planning to host a private screening in London but haven’t quite found a space that feels as cool as it is functional, take a look at the following selection, all of which we believe offer the best of both worlds.
ARCH 29 comes as a complete blank canvas, making it an ideal option for those of you who want to get creative and put your own stamp on the setting, transforming it to suit your particular needs. This is not to say it’s lacking in character however, with its very much on-trend urban finish and distinct arched ceiling granting the venue plenty of individuality amongst other comparable venues. The adjoining outdoor courtyard would prove very handy following the screening as a breakaway or reception space, should you have need of it.
Whether it’s an intimate gathering of just 8 people or a bustling reception for as many as 300, the team at The Hospital Club pride themselves on consistently delivering the same level of passion and top-quality service. The interior design is bold and striking throughout, meaning there is always something interesting to catch the eye, and with spaces including bars, lounges, a restaurant and a gallery alongside the screening room itself, you’ve certainly got plenty of scope to put together an entirely bespoke event.
Rich Mix is exactly that; a rich mix of fantastically adaptable spaces, combining to create one of London’s best independent arts venues. These include no less than 3 boutique cinemas for the actual screening, as well as 3 neutral multi-purpose spaces, a mezzanine level gallery and even an outdoor area, leaving you positively spoilt for choice. By combining cutting-edge facilities with delicious catering options and client-based theming for each occasion, their broad appeal is easy to understand; and what with profits serving their work as an arts charity, booking here really is win-win.
Art installations, striking graphics and unique features (not least the life-size London bus found in the bar) ensure that no one could ever accuse Generator of being dull or drab. For all its modern flair, however, exposed brickwork, reclaimed timbers and hot-rolled black steel hark back to the city’s industrial past for a hit of authentic London heritage. The newly refurbished onsite cinema is perfect for hosting a private screening, and with the various other spaces all available on a room-by-room basis, you only need to hire out what you actually need.
Tape London houses a world class sound system and fully customisable lighting set-up, not to mention a committed production crew and design team, meaning you’ve got everything you could possibly need to both set the desired tone for the event and have the screening itself run without a hitch – all with minimum fuss and effort on your part. Conveniently located on Hanover Square, both Bond Street and Oxford Circus tube stations can be reached in around 5 minutes.
