Below is a breakdown of some of the best and most elegant gallery spaces on offer in Central London, well worth considering for your next event.
Space W10 benefits from its wonderful location within a hub of some of London’s most fashionable and creative areas, including Portobello Road and Kensal Rise. The bright, contemporary interior makes it a great choice for events with a modern flair, with the simple white finish and extensive natural lighting keeping the space highly flexible in its use. That said, the unique layout and striking pillars ensure that there is still plenty of character to help set the scene for a luxurious occasion. There is a broad selection of good transport links in the vicinity and a capacity of 200, meaning it’s as practical as it is attractive.
For an event with a sense of intimacy and sophistication, consider Lacey Contemporary as the backdrop. Set across 2 floors, this gallery and multi-purpose space carries a varied program of exciting contemporary artists, meaning there is always something eye-catching for your guests to engage with. There is a capacity of 80 on offer, and a simple, modern aesthetic that allows it to meet many different styles. There is also a plethora of good transport links in the surrounding area, including Holland Park, Ladbroke Grove, Shepherd’s Bush and Notting Hill Gate.
There is a deceptively generous amount of space on offer at 15 Bateman Street, with the classic shop front belying the 2 floors beyond. With a custom lighting system and experience within the commercial art gallery business, they are a particularly good choice for a product launch or exhibition, but the charming, stylish interior can lend itself to many different occasions. The focus is on immersion here, as your guests move through the venue’s various spaces, and with a 200 person capacity and plenty of options when it comes to nearby rail links, this is indeed a highly practical choice for many events.
As the name suggests, Oxford Circus Gallery sits within the popular area of London, between Mayfair and Soho and just a stone’s throw from Oxford Circus tube station itself. This blank canvas venue is the perfect choice if you want to have the opportunity to put your own stamp on the décor and styling, tailoring the space to suit your own event’s particular needs. It also means the venue can host almost any type of gathering, be it private or corporate in nature. The maximum capacity allows for up to 70 guests to attend, meaning it is well suited to somewhat more intimate occasions.
Gallery House Soho is a 6 floor Victorian townhouse found within the ever popular district of Soho. Well connected, it can be comfortably reached from the likes of Tottenham Court Road, Leicester Square and Oxford Circus stations. The interior boasts a flexible layout, which can be hired either in part or in full, depending on the scale of the event, offering a maximum capacity of up to 80. Having already played host to all sorts of different events and top brands including John Lewis and Wallpaper Magazine, this is clearly a desirable, sought-after venue for a reason.
Split across 2 floors, Rosenfeld Porcini has 3000 square feet of floor space on offer, providing the scope for events hosting up to 300 people. Highlights include the clean and pure architecture, the modern finish and the fully functioning kitchen – perfect if you want to organise catering for your guests. Located within the vibrant gallery district of Fitzrovia, it is well served by its close proximity to several local transport links, including Tottenham Court Road, Goodge Street and Oxford Circus, all of which can be reached in well under 10 minutes.
