If you are hosting an event in North London and are in search of the perfect quirky venue to serve as the backdrop, look no further than the following top picks.
It is the sheer versatility of Park Village Studio that is where its true appeal lies, with the space able to accommodate anything from conferences to wedding receptions, dinner parties to press launches, and award ceremonies to fashion shows, with just about everything else in between. Whatever the occasion may be, the good capacity allows for up to 200 guests to attend. Housed within a historic building on the edge of Regent’s Park and just a short walk from W1, nearby transport links include Mornington Crescent and Camden Town tube stations.
The name alone is surely a strong indicator that The Dead Dolls House is not your typical, run of the mill venue. This 3 story Victorian townhouse is also highly versatile in its use, able to accommodate both large parties for as many as 250 guests and intimate gatherings with just your nearest and dearest (with 3 private rooms available for hire). The sumptuous, immersive and ornate styling throughout has a grand and almost gothic feel, with heavy use of black and white that is perfectly in-keeping with the ambience brought to mind by the venue’s name.
Despite having a surprisingly generous maximum capacity, The Forge has a wonderfully intimate feel. This is brought on by the comfortable, colourful and mismatched furniture, granting the space a welcoming, friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Most notable of all however is the bold artwork that covers the wall, sure to be a talking point amongst your guests. The kitchen and bar can easily take care of any catering needs you have, and with Camden Town and Mornington Crescent stations just 4 and 6 minutes away respectively, the venue is easily reached from throughout the city.
The Hoxton Distillery dates back to the turn of the century, and is found within the very heart of Shoreditch, just a stone’s throw from Hoxton Square. The atmospheric interior is spread across a total of 3 floors, with rooms in various sizes, layouts and capacities on offer, depending on what you need for your particular event, as these individual spaces can either be combined and hired as one, or selected and used on their own. The nearest transport options include Old Street, Liverpool Street and Hoxton stations, making it easy to reach from both inside London and further afield.
