When the hard work of designing and producing a new product has been taken care of, the time comes to give it the best possible send off into the world, and so with that in mind you’ll want to throw a great launch party that not only celebrates everyone’s achievement but also helps to make a good first impression on any industry experts or reviewers in attendance, who can make all the different to the product’s success later down the line. That said, here are some great venues that could play host to such an occasion.
Whitfield Street Space comes as a highly contemporary blank canvas meaning it is a great choice if you are looking for a space that allows you the opportunity to put your own creative stamp on the décor, making the space feel entirely your own. This spacious ground floor showroom can accommodate up to 200 guests and has great access, which is particularly useful for loading and unloading purposes, should you need to get plenty of examples of your new product onsite in time for the party. Well connected to the wider city, there are plenty of nearby transport links at your disposal.
Blank Canvases are understandably a popular choice for many events given the creative freedom and personalisation they allow, but as a result they can often be lacking somewhat in character and individuality. Oui 2 Rooms is like the perfect compromise, as this blank canvas venue is still open and neutral enough to be tailored to suit many different styles, but comes with various extra touches – like exposed brickwork and pillars – that inject charisma into the space. This venue also has good ground floor access and handy nearby tube stations in the surrounding area.
Asia House is a beautiful Georgian townhouse that is tucked away from the hectic bustle of the city and yet still within the hub of its action, well serviced by its close proximity to the likes of Great Portland Street, Regents Park and Oxford Circus stations. Decorative ceilings and marble fireplaces bring undeniable charm to the various rooms on offer at this Grade II listed venue, and it is the diverse range of spaces on offer that make this unique offering able to accommodate events for anywhere as intimate as just 2 guests to as many as 300, depending on the feel you want for your launch.
If you are looking for a generous, airy, open space then Wardour Street Gallery is well worth considering. This contemporary art gallery can play host to as many as 500 guests at a standing reception or 100 if you would prefer a more formal seated dinner party. Features include a high-class reflective black floor, high ceilings, good natural lighting and cutting edge architectural touches. Its enviable location in the heart of the renowned area of Soho means it is easily reached from the length and breadth of the city, with Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square a mere selection of your nearby transport options.
Rosenfeld Porcini is another venue that benefits from its great location. Found within the well-known, vibrant and creative hub that is Fitzrovia, this contemporary gallery space sits between Oxford Circus, Goodge Street and Tottenham Court Road tube stations. The venue itself has 3000 square feet of space on offer, spread across 2 floors and finished in a clean, modern style with eye-catching architecture and design. There is a good maximum capacity allowing for as many as 300 guests and even a fully functioning kitchen onsite should you wish to organise catering.
