Experiencing a Sofar Sounds gig is a must for music lovers and if you want to go one step further and help organise one, then the following venues would all make a great setting.
The various unique architectural features found throughout Cob Studios make it a great backdrop for any event where you want to make a lasting impression on your guests. The highly contemporary white cube space offers users the very best of modern minimalist style, being striking without distracting from the actual event itself. Being in Camden NW1, it is also excellently situated for those who are looking to travel from throughout the rest of London, with Camden Road tube station just a stone’s throw away and Camden Town also very close by.
The beauty of Loft Studios is that its big, open space makes it in many ways a blank canvas that can be tailored to suit your event but that doesn’t mean it sacrifices charm and character, both of which it has in abundance. Found in West London, it is a studio complex that has played hose to all sorts of different occasions, with highlights including the natural brickwork, exposed beams, generous ceiling height and attractive wooden floors, not to mention the large windows and skylights that flood its entirety with natural light, making for a bright, airy space.
Originally built by Victorian architects in 1860, the space that is now Kachette was once Shoreditch rail station. Once abandoned, it sat unused for 25 years before being converted into a multi-purpose event space. Nestled beneath 2 railway arches, it retains the charm of its rich history with exposed brickwork and a rustic finish. The dedicated team have ample experience in realising people’s event plans, assisting with everything from furniture selection to equipment hire and from catering to décor choices. As for transport links, it sits right between 3 tube stations, the nearest being Old Street.
Situated in the heart of Hoxton, right next to the tube station of the same name, you will find Geffrye Street Studio. As with the previous choice, this unique East London venue also offers the ever popular Victorian style architecture, including the much desired brickwork alongside many other attractive features that will no doubt appeal to your guests. With an intimate capacity and experience in hosting any number of different events (including everything from photo shoots to yoga classes), it would make the ideal backdrop for a Sofar Sounds gig.
