London has some truly fantastic themed venues that really help to elevate your event to the next level, making the day an occasion to remember. The following list comprises some of the very best on offer.
Shaka Zulu opened its doors to the public in 2010, becoming London’s largest South African themed restaurant. The venue also serves as a bar and club spread across a generous 27,000 square feet of space over 2 floors, adding up to offer a vast maximum capacity of 850. With sumptuous, highly ornate décor awaiting every glance, delicious authentic South African cuisine and plenty of live music and dancing to keep everyone entertained, the setting is one that is all about immersion in another culture. Found in The Stables Market, Camden Town and Camden Road tube stations can both be reached in mere minutes.
Trapeze offers some of the brightest, boldest and quirkiest décor around, making for a fun, light-hearted vibe that can lend itself to all sorts of different occasions, from dinner parties to a filming location, and club nights to corporate conferences with a twist. It benefits from a great location just off Old Street in the heart of the popular area of Shoreditch, putting it within comfortable walking distance of rail stations including Shoreditch High Street, Liverpool Street and Old Street itself. Exclusive hire is available on some nights, with private areas for up to 60 people available on Fridays and Saturdays.
The star of the show at Gilgamesh London is almost certainly the sheer attention to detail in the interior design, with simply stunning decorative touches that make for a rich and atmospheric space that is brimming with character. With 5 event spaces available for hire and a dedicated events team, the venue is able to be very flexible when it comes to forming plans, with the same amount of effort being given from the team whether an intimate gathering of just 20 or a bustling party for as many as 500. With a marriage licence already in place, onsite parking and good transport links in the surrounding area, this is a very practical, fully-equipped venue.
Like hanging out in a swanky Brooklyn bar, Brooklyn Bowl is great if you want to hold an event that allows your guests to get involved in the night itself, with one of the 5 spaces on offer including a 12 lane bowling alley. There is also a built-in stage, which has played host to the likes of Pharrell Williams, which comes with in-house AV equipment for a seamless evening. The award-winning menu meanwhile boasts barbecue pork ribs, smoky wings, fried chicken and other tasty get-stuck-in style foods. Found close to the Thames, North Greenwich tube station sits just 3 minutes away.
Discreetly tucked away within the vaults of The London Palladium, you know you are in for a truly memorable night the moment you arrive at Mason House, entering through a hall of mirrors and descending to the dancefloor through a candlelit crypt. The ultimate in opulence, this is a venue for the discerning partygoer, with spaces including the 450 capacity Main Room and the more laid back Mood Lounge. Facilities include laser lighting, plasma screens, a Bose sound system and a wide selection of canapes, bowl foods and dinner menus, meaning everything you need for a successful night is already to hand.
