Scaling back on size doesn’t have to mean sacrificing quality, and with that in mind, below you will find a range of some of the best intimate, alternative conference spaces in the Bank area of London.
Though the building’s full capacity is 200, within The City Centre, you will find a boardroom and a designated conference room for more low-key gatherings. These spaces come fully equipped with the necessary facilities, whilst a dedicated events management team can take care of any leg work with regards to organising whatever hospitality and catering you may require. As for getting there, St Paul’s, Moorgate and Mansion House are amongst the nearest transport links.
Styled to look like an elegant private home, The Walbrook Club has a welcoming and relaxed vibe that is extended to both members and non-members alike. Priding themselves on discretion, privacy and a friendly, personal level of service, the venue has built up a reputation as one of the area’s best hidden gems. The building itself sits just 3 minutes from both Bank and Monument stations, so you shouldn’t have any trouble getting there from throughout London.
Striking architectural touches and design flair lend The London Capital Club an air of sophistication, with an aesthetic that feels both timeless and quintessentially British. The 6 grand private rooms range in capacities from as intimate as just 4 up to as many as 140, for a total throughout the building of a very generous 500, leaving you with plenty of options when it comes to choosing the right space and forming the list of invites. Hire options include an all-inclusive day delegate rate, available for both members and non-members.
Located on the charmingly named Little Trinity Lane, close to the likes of Bank and Blackfriars stations, Painters’ Hall boasts a choice of 3 diverse rooms which have been used as the backdrop for all kinds of private and corporate occasions. It’s the arresting attention to detail and the sumptuous, atmospheric feel of the venue that has contributed in large part to this broad appeal. When kitted out for a conference in particular, it can hold up to 200 delegates.
Merchant Taylors has a choice of no less than 9 different event spaces. Housed within a historical venue with many of its period features and old-world charm still very much intact, these spaces have a traditional classiness to them, guaranteed to bring a real sense of precedence to your conference – or any other event for that matter. Well connected to both the rest of the city and further afield, Bank and Liverpool Street tube stops and Cannon Street train station are all within comfortable walking distance.
