A classic, traditional wedding is all well and good but not necessarily everyone’s cup of tea. For a day that is sure to be remembered by everyone in attendance, your best bet is to opt instead for something a little different, and what better way to set the tone than with an unusual venue.
Tanner Warehouse is a bar, restaurant and multi-purpose warehouse event space that has played host to all sorts of private and corporate occasions, meaning the friendly staff are well versed in the running of a successful event. The sleek open kitchen offers delicious food, whilst the fully-loaded bar takes care of the drinks. Hire also includes access to the top-notch in-house audio-visual equipment which should help with any entertainment and such forth, should you wish to organise it. With a good maximum capacity on offer and a great location in Bermondsey Street, just a stone’s throw from London Bridge station, it’s equally as convenient for your guests.
Islington Metalworks comes from unique beginnings, having once been the building used to house the horses that pulled trams for London Transport. Having been given a whole new lease of life, it now functions as a highly flexible venue, hosting everything from club nights and parties to exhibitions and fashion shows. Fully licensed with an on-site kitchen and catering team, your guests should be well taken care of, and they should also have no problem reaching the venue, as it sits right behind Angel tube station, making it easily reached from throughout London.
LIBRARY is one of London’s newest offerings in the way of venues but it is fast becoming known as one of its most interesting. This private members’ club in Covent Garden can suit many different occasions, with an eclectic interior that is overflowing with quirk and charm, appealing especially to the city’s literary, music, theatre and design communities. The décor boasts touches of both old and new so that there’s always something to draw the eye. There are 4 tube stations all just minutes away on foot, which should ensure that your guests can all reach the reception with relative ease.
POLPO at Ape and Bird, in the centre of Soho, is a versatile and customisable venue that is spread across a total of 3 floors, which once again can either be hired on an individual basis or as a whole package in accordance with your reception’s needs. The capacity of 350 is substantial and with 2 dining rooms and 2 bars on offer, none of your guests should go home feeling unsatisfied. From the elegant and tasteful Soho Room on the first floor to the grungy Dive Bar found in the basement, the aesthetic is wide ranging, meaning there’s something to please everyone.
Mr Fogg’s has been cleverly designed to feel like the eclectic and delightfully quirky Mayfair house Phileas Fogg would have called home after his adventures across the globe in Jules Verne’s celebrated work, Around the World in Eighty Days. As such, the decoration is unlike anything else you will find in London (or anywhere else for that matter), with all sorts of fascinating and eye-catching trinkets to keep all your guests talking. In spite of all its eccentricity however, it is still a practical choice, with a capacity of 170 and several nearby transport links to utilise.
