Whether you need a blank canvas to kit out to your own specifications or an up and running space that is tailor made for hosting press events, choosing the right location is often key when you’re looking to impress the media or launch your product in style. With so many options in London to choose from, here are some of the city’s very best.
Faber Creative Spaces is comprised of two event spaces linked to Faber and Faber publishing house, home of world renowned writers including T. S. Eliot, Samuel Beckett, P. D. James and Kazuo Ishiguro. Found in the eaves of a historic Grade II listed building in Bloomsbury, London, both rooms are bright, light and airy, creating the perfect atmosphere for meeting and greeting. With a capacity of 80, they are a more intimate choice, lending themselves perhaps to press events that require a little more personal interaction or discussion amongst the guests. The onsite Smart Board and Wi-Fi mean you are already well connected and ready to jump straight into your presentation.
Found at number 8, Vigo Street in the popular area of Mayfair, this venue is a Grade I listed Georgian townhouse that delivers all the historical charm you would imagine, while being tastefully decorated throughout with luxurious materials that optimise the impact of eye-catching colours, textures and shapes. It is a designated business venue with a much more intimate capacity of just 40, which has been cleverly designed to recreate the style and feel of an upmarket apartment, with each space designated as a room in the home, including a living/dining room, bedroom, dressing room, cinema room, kitchen, wine cellar and bathroom. Unique and sumptuous, Alma is an excellent choice if you want a venue a little out of the ordinary. It’s also handily within walking distance of 2 major London train stations.
Another profoundly unique option, Generator is ideal for press events which require a more visually striking setting. Be it art installations or bespoke graphics, there’s always something interesting to hold your gaze here, not least the iconic, life-size London bus found in the bar. With separate but equally individual spaces available for use – and even an onsite café and cinema room – this is a highly adaptable central London venue that, in spite of the modern, fun finishes, retains much of its sense of history through exposed brick walls, reclaimed timbers and hot-rolled black steel, expertly bringing together the best of both old and new. It has a decent 200 person capacity and can be found just 10 minutes or so from King’s Cross St Pancras.
