Christmas is right around the corner and to secure one of the best South London venues, you’ll have to get your bookings in fast. To save you some of the leg work, here are 5 of the very best on offer.
The Qube Project sits in an enviable location in London’s vibrant Victoria, just a stone’s throw from the station of the same name and Westminster Cathedral. The interior space itself is comprised of 3 entirely bespoke, individually designed rooms that come complete with art installations and video 3D mapping technology. The style, production and entertainment are all adaptable, meaning the space can be kitted out to suit almost any occasion, no matter the desired vibe of the party, and with a vast maximum capacity of around 1400, there’s no need to leave anyone off the guest list.
Tucked away from the hectic bustle of the city on a quiet London street, Bermondsey Social Club is a unique venue suitable for a wide range of different events. Found under a railway arch, the indoor space boats the characteristic and eye-catching curved ceiling, but there are also outdoor spaces should you prefer to take the festivities out into the open air. It has a somewhat intimate capacity of 120, making it great for friendlier, smaller gatherings but that needn’t hamper the fun as there is a licence lasting until 1 am, 7 days a week, meaning you can party the night away.
Found in Clapham Junction, just a 9 minute walk from the train station that shares the same name, Adventure SW11 is a versatile venue that can be hired out in specific areas or as a whole, depending on the size of your guest list, holding up to 200 people in all. The décor is its biggest selling point, with the bold patterns, bright colours and quirky finishes creating a sense of fun that is ideal for the festive season. The team at Adventure are more than happy to work with you to create bespoke parties, priding themselves on assisting with all sorts of arrangements.
Underglobe’s name comes from the fact that it is quite literally tucked beneath the Globe Theatre, one of London’s most recognisable attractions. This hidden gem has a generous maximum capacity of 450 and fantastic ceiling height, making it great for larger scale celebrations that still feel spacious and airy. With guests arriving via the riverside entrance and browsing the Shakespearean exhibition whilst enjoying drinks on the private mezzanine, they will be well into the festive mood before descending the sweeping staircase to take in the impressive, dramatic interior in all its glory.
Another decidedly unique offering, Toro Gordo is a one-off blend of Asian and Spanish influences, offering guests the chance to enjoy exciting, exotic cocktails and deliciously authentic Spanish tapas in a picturesque and charming setting. Suitable for all sorts of gatherings, not least a Christmas party, its nearby transport links include Hammersmith and Ravenscourt Park, at just a 6 and 7 minute walk away respectively, making it well connected and easily reached from throughout the rest of London should your guests be travelling from further afield.
