London has a whole range of different venues that could play host to a themed corporate party. To help make your search a little easier, we’ve highlighted a few of our very favourites below.
BOUNCE is the ultimate social hub which brings together a bar, restaurant and ping pong club, meaning it fast became a hotly sought after place to hold events related to both business and pleasure. The design throughout is award-winning, meaning you know you are in capable hands, and with so many different possibilities when it comes to the type of event you want to hold here, it’s able to accommodate capacities of anywhere between 6 and 500 people. There is also a private room which includes, amongst many other features, UV ping pong, a karaoke system, a cocktail bar with a dedicated bartender, and a top quality sound system.
Trapeze is a very flexible offering and a large part of its popularity lies in how quirky and inviting the décor is. Bold colours, striking patterns and charmingly mismatched furnishings bring a sense of fun to the space, which has so far been utilised for everything from conferences to club nights. Found right in the heart of the popular area of Shoreditch, it can be reached from Old Street station in just a few minutes. Exclusive hire may be possible throughout the week, with private areas for up to 60 on offer on Friday and Saturday evenings.
Fu Manchu can be found in Clapham North – mere stumbling distance from the tube station of the same name – tucked beneath 2 old railway arches. This gives it a distinct atmosphere, with the characteristic arched ceilings and exposed brickwork of London’s architectural past bringing an instant hit of style and cool to the space. With a state-of-the-art sound and lighting system and all the other necessary facilities to accommodate live music, it’s a particularly good choice if you wanted to organise entertainment for your guests to keep them amused.
The Conservatory is certainly one of the city’s more unique offerings when it comes to the events scene. Like a tropical oasis hidden within the bustle of busy London, it is home to more than 2000 species of plants and trees from around the world, as well as beautiful exotic fish. This abundance of nature – heightened by the addition of a glass roof that lets in plenty of natural light – contrasts with the otherwise contemporary look and feel of the space, coming together to create a setting that really is like no other. Well connected, Barbican and Moorgate stations can both be reached in around 5 minutes or so.
Set in a turn-of-the-century playhouse, The Box Soho is styled like an Old World theatre, which means you can expect plenty of glamour and decadence with regards to the style and atmosphere. Being a theatre and nightclub, it has all the necessary stage production facilities to host live performances, meaning that organising entertainment will once again present no difficulty. There is even an experienced creative team in-house who will assist with the smooth running of the event. Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square and Oxford Circus stations can all be reached comfortably in well under 10 minutes.
