Summer is fast approaching and if you are looking to host a corporate party, we’ve got you covered when it comes to selecting a top venue, with all of the following making excellent choices.
Radio Rooftop is an ideal choice for a morning gathering, being open between 7am and 10:30am only. Certainly one of the city’s most exclusive and striking venues however, your guests are sure to be equally as impressed by the breath-taking, panoramic views of London’s iconic skyline no matter if they are locals or visiting the capital for the first time. This stunning rooftop bar has an incredibly contemporary, chic feel that adds prestige to any occasion, whilst its brilliant location close to the Thames keeps it right within the heart of the city’s business scene.
Craft London is another of the city’s best offerings if you are looking for a venue with a highly modern finish; one that is guaranteed to make an impression upon your guests and be very much a star of the show in its own right. This New British restaurant, café, cocktail bar and shop can cater to many different event styles, but regardless of the occasion, the beautiful interior design and unbeatable city views will always ensure it’s a day to be remembered. Also found close to the banks of the river, the venue sits just 4 minutes from North Greenwich station.
Tucked away on a rare quiet street underneath a railway arch you will find Bermondsey Social Club, a decidedly unique venue and multi-purpose event space. With indoor and outdoor space available and a late licence in place until 1 am, 7 days a week, this is a highly flexible offering, one that suits both private and corporate events alike, making it a worthy choice no matter the desired vibe for your party. With a good maximum capacity of 120 and nearby transport links that include Bermondsey and Surrey Quays, it’s an equally practical choice.
Bird of Smithfield offers several different spaces, each complete with their own particular merits. These include The Birdcage cocktail bar with a capacity of 60, the Private Room which can accommodate up to 40 guests and the 1st floor restaurant which can seat up to 52 guests. The spaces are unified by their stylish, high quality finish and the building itself benefits from its close proximity to several great transport links, including Barbican, Farringdon, St Paul’s and Blackfriars stations, making it easy to reach from both within London and further afield.
Bumpkin Chelsea is a Great British Brasserie offering a welcoming home-from-home atmosphere, not to mention delicious food prepared using locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. There is a private dining room but also outdoor space available courtesy of The Secret Garden, with access to The Chelsea Gardener making this venue like an oasis within the middle of the city. So be it a formal dinner indoors or a more laidback BBQ outside, this venue can cater to both with ease. Located just off the popular King’s Road, the nearest tube station is Sloane Square, which can be reached in around 15 minutes on foot.
City Summer House sits on the renowned Brick Lane, known for being the party capital of the East End, meaning you know right off the bat that this is a venue guaranteed to bring a fun atmosphere. The brickwork and metal furnishings bring character to the contemporary space, as do the colourful, quirky touches found throughout. Aside from the main warehouse space, there is also a covered garden which comes complete with a themed bar, picnic tables and glowing lanterns, making this an ideal spot for a summer soiree. Highly flexible in its use, you are encouraged to let your imagination run wild and transform the space into your dream venue.
