There are many private corporate event venues around London, but if you’re looking to do something other than just have a conference, like really celebrate or have a party, then you’ll want an unusual and unique location. That means you’re going to want something on the cutting edge of cool, with maybe just a little bit of funky thrown in for good measure. You’re also going to want something a little smaller, as a private corporate event venue needs to have just enough space, but not too much. We’ve gone around the city and selected some of the hottest places in town that have just the right amount of funky for private company events, but aren’t too cool to be business friendly. Have look, and we’re sure you’ll find the space you’ve been looking for to host your next company party.
Conway Hall was built in 1929 and now has official Grade II listed status, meaning many of the original period features and much of the building’s historic charm remains intact. The Main Hall boasts an impressive capacity of 400, spread across balcony and floor seating, and with internationally renowned acoustics and plenty of experience hosting everything from concerts to conferences, you needn’t worry about your guests hearing any performers you may wish to organise as entertainment for the evening. The nearest tube station – Holborn – can be reached in around 5 minutes.
The London EDITION Basement is a great venue choice if you want to bring a tangible sense of atmosphere to your corporate party. Coming complete with a custom lighting system by Patrick Woodroffe, a fully-stocked bar and a state-of-the-art sound system, it has all the facilities you need for a smooth and hassle-free event, with all your production requirements taken care of. The maximum capacity is a generous 220 and the nearest transport links include Oxford Circus and Tottenham Court Road, both of which can be reached in around 5 minutes or so.
Found on Duke Street, opposite Selfridges, Noir W1 is a premium wine and cocktail lounge, meaning it is the perfect mix of both sophisticated style and a fun, party atmosphere. This is the ideal set-up for a corporate Christmas party, where colleagues can get together outside the office and celebrate getting through another hard year’s work. With a late licence, the festive cheer can carry on well into the wee small hours of the morning, at which time the close proximity to several tube stations, including Bond Street and Marble Arch is sure to come in handy.
No. 4 Hamilton Place is situated in the ever-popular London area of Mayfair, a desirable and distinguished location that makes it a popular choice for corporate events. This enviable spot also benefits from its closeness to good transport options, including Hyde Park Corner and Green Park. The interior is suitably grand and decadent for a Christmas celebration, with many ornate Edwardian-style touches that bring a real sense of glamour and sophistication to proceedings. There are several event spaces on offer, including a large rooftop terrace and a beautiful dining room, with the maximum capacity reaching a generous 300.
Designed by Ludovic Messager, known for his design of the Titty Twister club in Paris, the Mason House is a venue well on its way to being established as one of London’s top clubs. Themed after a Masonic Temple, it’s an extraordinary and somewhat privileged look into the inner workings of the city’s most elite and secretive society. This modern twist on a classic theme is nothing short of amazing, with much of the original building features having been restored and preserved. There are exposed brick arches, tilted ceilings, and of course the checkered tiles you’d expect to see in any lodge. With room for up to 415 people, there is plenty of room for anything your or your guests would like to do, and of course there’s no substitute for having your corporate party in the home of a secret society. It’s also just steps from Oxford Circus, and around ten minutes walk from four other stations.
