If you want your away day to be something unique that will be both looked forward to and remembered fondly afterwards, choosing the right venue is the first and arguably most important decision to be made. With that in mind, here are some great choices, all found within the capital.
City Golf Club is an ideal choice if you want to plan an away day that will get everyone interacting, with six golf simulators, a stage area with karaoke and a lounge bar, alongside additional entertainment options in the way of race driving and Buzz Quiz. With so much for everyone to get involved with, any ice will be broken in no time. The capacity allows for up to 150 guests and the nearest transport links include the likes of Bank, St. Paul’s and Monument.
Found right in the middle of Old Street Roundabout and just seconds from Old Street tube station, The Magic Roundabout boasts no less than 3 bars, as well as a dancefloor and award winning street food. Transforming from an open-air terrace in the summer to a covered, heated venue in the winter, it is available year-round for a wide range of event types, from product launches and corporate parties to photoshoots and club nights, all with a relaxed and welcoming vibe.
Bounce is one the UK’s leading entertainment concepts, offering guests the unique blend of corporate facilities, quality dining and Ping Pong. The main space has a 10ft wide cinematic screen, an HD projector and a state-of-the-art presentation system, but there is also a Private Room with a luxurious and exclusive feel for up to 120 guests, complete with 3 Ping Pong tables, a bar, karaoke, a sound system and so much more. There are lots of options when it comes to drinks and catering packages, as well as various deals to be enjoyed.
Another offering that is sure to get everyone letting loose and having fun, Heist Bank is in essence like a playground for adults, with pool, karaoke and a Nintendo 64, as well as a projector and AV equipment for any production needs you may have. The restaurant area can seat up to 60, but hire of the ground floor will double the capacity. Better yet, you can hire the entire venue and have ample space for as many as 350 guests. Well connected, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to nearby tube stops, which include Paddington and Royal Oak.
If you want your away day to have a foodie twist, 19 Wigmore Street could be just the venue you’re looking for. Hire here includes use of the 2 sleek and contemporary kitchens, as well as the adjoining dining space, restrooms, cloak room and a kitchen porter. The kitchens themselves come fully kitted out with crockery, glass ware and cutlery, allowing you to organise interactive events such as demonstrations, masterclasses, tastings and receptions, where guests can get their hands dirty then enjoy the fruits of their labour.
