Summer is right around the corner and if you were planning to host a party in London, you’ll need to get a booking in fast to secure one of the top venues, such as any of those found below.
Hawker House is a converted warehouse in Canada Water, just a stone’s throw from the station of the same name. It’s an ideal choice for large scale parties, as the generous space can accommodate a hefty capacity of up to 2500. With no less than 16 food traders and 9 bars on offer, it certainly won’t be difficult to come by refreshments for all those guests, and the vast open space of the interior means things won’t feel crowded. Not only is the venue close to a tube stop for those who use public transport, but there’s a large car park onsite for those who would prefer to make their own way to the party.
City Summer House is perfect for those looking for a contemporary inner city venue. This fun, charming space doesn’t shy away from its hipster beginnings – which are certainly very much on trend these days anyway – with brickwork and rustic metal furnishings bringing plenty of charisma. The main interior is a good sized warehouse style space, or you could opt instead to use the covered garden, complete with themed bar, picnic tables and glowing lanterns. Priding themselves on their versatility, this venue is a great choice if you want the freedom to transform it into your own dream party backdrop.
Big Chill House is the type of venue that’s all about creating the right vibe, and what you can expect is perfectly encapsulated right there in its name. This large Victorian public house is the ideal chill out space, which is why it lends itself so well to a summer soiree. Everything from tasty food and drinks, great music, a dance floor, free Wi-Fi, lots of competitive offers, and perhaps best of all, access to an all-year-round terrace is all on hand at this adaptable, laid-back venue. It also sits just 5 minutes from Kings Cross St Pancras, so it’s easily reached from further afield.
Dinerama is one of the city’s more unique offerings and is a great space for generating that party spirit that is perfect for summer. Spread across 2 levels, this street food arena boasts six bars which serve everything from wine and cocktails to hot toddies and craft beers from around the world, meaning everyone’s favourite tipple should be catered for. Serving as a flexible, multi-purpose event space, there is a bumper maximum capacity of 1000 available, and with the likes of Shoreditch High Street, Liverpool Street and Old Street stations all just minutes away, it’s also well connected to the rest of London.
Speaking of Old Street, The Magic Roundabout sits in the middle of Old Street Roundabout, putting it in stumbling distance of the station that shares its name, with Barbican and Moorgate also close by. Here you can expect to find 3 bars, a dance floor and award winning street food. Though serving as a heated, tented venue in the winter, the space is uncovered in the summer to transform it into an open-air terrace. Be it for private or corporate purposes, the space can suit all sorts of different occasions, and with a good capacity of more than 500, you needn’t leave anyone off the invite list.
