The gaming industry has come on leaps and bounds in recent years, with new technology constantly pushing the boundaries of what creators are capable of offering. To help your creation stand out within the market and get the best launch possible, you’ll want to opt for a suitable venue and make a good first impression.
The Brew is located in Shoreditch, Central London, within comfortable walking distance of Old Street and Shoreditch High Street stations, and just 20 minutes from Liverpool Street, making it easily reached from both within London and further afield. The industrial interior of exposed pipes, steel and high ceilings combined with the stripped paintwork brings character and a raw quality that makes a great impact. Despite this character however, the space is still neutral enough that you put your own stamp on it so that it suits your particular event, and with a good capacity of 150, there’s space for a decent sized guest list.
Originating in the 1970s, Boxville was once a sporting venue that was abandoned before being given a new lease of life as a multi-purpose event space. The industrial, stripped-back vibe is very much on trend at the moment and it comes in abundance here, with the vast open spaces able to accommodate a whole range of different events and styles, with an impressive 51,000 square feet of unobstructed floor space and a capacity of 500 on offer in all. Located in Lewisham, just 5 minutes from the station of the same name, Boxville is a newly opened venue that seems set to quickly become a go to event space.
One of Chiltern St Studio’s strengths as an event space is its location alone. Sitting on the popular Clerkenwell Road, the venue is right within one of the city’s best creative hubs, known for its great amenities, and just minutes from good transport links such as Farringdon and Barbican. This ex-night club has been transformed into a blank canvas style, highly flexible venue, split across 2 sections with interconnecting archways that combine to offer more than 2,500 square feet altogether. The simple, white finish throughout is both modern and adaptable, allowing you to kit out the space however you see fit for your launch.
￼4 Princelet Street is a perfect choice if you want a venue that is a little out of the ordinary; one that is likely to be a star of the occasion in its own right. This East London venue has a clear Dickensian feel, having been deliberately unmodernised so that it retains the thick atmosphere and extensive characterful charm. With rich, wooden finishes throughout, it’s like stepping back in time, which would make a fascinating contrast in style given the highly contemporary nature of the gaming world. In terms of the practicalities, there’s a capacity of 120 and it sits just 7 minutes from Liverpool St station.
Found right in the heart of London’s theatre and fashion district in the world renowned West End, Startisans is a fantastic blank canvas event space that you can transform into your dream venue. This 200-person capacity space is glass-fronted, letting in plenty of natural light, whilst the space itself amounts to 1300 square feet. Catering options, security and an alcohol licence are all available to ensure a fun yet hassle-free occasion, whilst its excellent location means it is well connected to the rest of the city, with nearby tube stations including Covent Garden, Holborn, Tottenham Court Road and Leicester Square.
