For all its conveniences and strong business connections, Central London is a fantastic place to hold a conference. If however you want yours to really stand out, take a look at some of these more unique spaces in which to hold it.
Noho Studios is one of the newest event spaces available for hire in the ever popular West End of London. High ceilings and white brick arches bring a touch of character and atmosphere to the venue, but the otherwise white, minimalistic finish keeps things neutral enough to be adapted to suit your own style and taste, making this a great blank canvas option. Shop window space and customisable frontage adds to the DIY approach, really allowing you to make the space your own, whilst the building itself sits just 2 minutes each from Oxford Circus and Goodge Street tube stations, meaning it is easily reached from throughout the city.
Set within a turn of the century playhouse and styled like an Old World theatre, The Box Soho is a nightclub, theatre and multi-purpose event space with a sumptuous and welcoming feel. The décor brings a touch of old-school glamour to proceedings, whilst the space itself is able to hold up to a maximum capacity of 288. With full stage production facilities on site, as well as a dedicated creative team to assist with planning and World Class Variety shows, this is a one of a kind venue that offers an ideal balance between practicality and entertainment, making for a wonderful alternative conference space.
Found within the bustling and hotly sought-after area of Soho, Century is one of the city’s best hidden gems, discreetly tucked away on Shaftsbury Avenue. With 5 different floors on offer in all, there’s certainly not a shortage of spaces to choose from, including a restaurant, a cocktail lounge, a meeting room, a screening room and even Soho’s largest rooftop terrace. This rich variety of space makes Century very flexible and thus able to accommodate everything from wedding receptions to business meetings, and private dinners to product launches, all for up to a total of 200 guests.
DSTRKT’s enviable central location keeps it within easy reach of many of London’s most popular areas, including Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square, the West End, Soho and Covent Garden, with a whole plethora of nearby tube stations at your disposal. With immersive and creative décor, this unique venue also has a number of different spaces and is able to hold gatherings for anywhere between 20 and 500 people, making it a suitable choice no matter how intimate or grand you want your conference to be. Having hosted a wide range of both private and corporate occasions alike, it makes for a great unconventional meeting space.
The London EDITION Basement is another offering with an eclectic range of uses, with the atmospheric space having played host to everything from corporate meetings to fashion shows, drinks receptions to high end dinners, and film screenings to product launches. This versatility makes it easy for you to make the space feel like your own, with handy on site extras including a custom lighting system by Patrick Woodroffe, a fully stocked bar and a state-of-the art sound system to assist with any production needs.
