Central London becomes a hive of activity during the festive season, so if you are planning a party you wouldn’t go far wrong by choosing one of its many wonderful venues to host it.
Found just minutes from St Paul’s tube station, as well as the iconic Cathedral from which it takes its name, Camino Blackfriars is a unique venue full of fun, vibrant colours. The striking features and eye-catching décor have been pleasing guests since the bar and restaurant opened in May 2013, and you can choose whether to hire out either the whole venue or one of the distinct individual areas, depending on the scale of your party. There is a generous capacity of up to 500, but the venue is fully-equipped for DJs and live music, so you needn’t worry about keeping them all entertained.
Each of the 6 available private rooms at The London Capital Club offer a classical elegance, with capacities ranging from as little as 4 up to 140 people. Its location in the very heart of the city puts it right at the hub of all the action and keeps it very well connected to the rest of London, with Bank and Monument tube stations as well as Cannon Street train station each just a few minutes away on foot, allowing your guests to travel to the venue with ease. It is a wonderful choice if you want your festive celebration to have a sense of sophistication and charm.
A relatively new venue on the London scene, Steam & Rye was opened in November 2013 but it has quickly built itself a solid reputation. Their top notch food and delicious cocktails have become renowned in the local area, particularly their Unlimited Ribs & Shrimp Night, and they have also played host to many DJs and live bands, meaning they are well-equipped to meet all your entertainment needs. It is surrounded by a plethora of transport links, including Bank tube station and Fenchurch Street train station and has a maximum capacity of 550.
If you want to bring a true sense of glamour and importance to your festivities then Banking Hall is the ideal choice. This gorgeous venue has been specifically designed to impress and you simply can’t fail to marvel at the stunning backdrop with its vast ceiling height, striking pillars and beautiful Art Deco styling. With an immense maximum capacity of 800, it can comfortably accommodate large scale parties and with the possibility to invite so many guests, you’ll no doubt be glad to hear that Bank tube station is just a stone’s throw away, with several other transport links also in the surrounding area.
