Launching your product is important, not only to give it the best possible start on the market, but to celebrate all the hard work that has gone into its creation and development. Give your new creation the best possible send-off into the world by hosting a top launch party at one of these great Shoreditch venues.
Rida East’s biggest strength is perhaps the sheer flexibility it offers. For starters, there are 2 spaces which you can utilise, either separately or together depending on the scale and layout you need – perhaps you could even use one for the party itself and one as a prep or VIP area. Secondly, there’s the neutrality of the white wall finish, which allows for complete customisation of the space via furnishings, props or projections, so get creative and make Rida East your own.
Housed beneath 4 redeveloped railway arches, Behind the Bike Shed has that distinct London flavour, with characterful exposed brickwork, curved ceilings and an overall sense of industrial chic. In addition to these period features, each of the available spaces benefits from underfloor heating below the shiny concrete floors for added comfort, with other handy details including a motorised truss system and a J-rail hanging system. The total capacity allows for as many as 400 guests to attend, and the nearest rail link is Old Street.
Kachette is also found within characteristically Victorian railway arches. In fact, the beautiful black gate entrance opens up into what was once the original ticket hall of the former Shoreditch Station, with other details harking back to the venue’s past including a vintage clock. There are 2 main spaces at your disposal, Arch 1 and Arch 2, which offer capacities of 180 and 120 respectively, with other facilities/services available including an outdoor courtyard, a cloakroom, a PA system, lighting, a production office and a duty manager.
Shoreditch Town Hall has established itself as a key player in East London’s cultural landscape, serving as an arts venue with a programme of non-traditional theatre. With no less than 8 stunning spaces to choose from, you’re virtually spoilt for choice, but regardless of how you utilise the space, the wealth of breathtakingly ornate features is guaranteed to bring that extra wow factor and make the evening feel special. Found just 5 minutes from the City of London, it’s very much at the heart of the capital.
Canvas One is comprised of the main, open-plan event space, which comes as an adaptable blank canvas; a green room, which could serve as a handy breakaway or prep area; and a private courtyard should you or your guests wish to step out for a breath of fresh air. Speaking of the guests, there is room to accommodate up to 250 of them per reception, and with hire lasting until as late as 2am, there will be no need to chase any of them away or wrap things up early.
The Umbrella Factory was once precisely that; a factory that produced umbrellas. Now, it serves as a unique, multi-purpose, warehouse style venue, with highlights in the main gallery including 3-metre high ceilings, south-facing windows, and a huge skylight that floods the interior with an abundance of natural light. With 3000 square feet of floor space on offer, you can expect to accommodate up to 250 guests, and they are sure to make good use of the handy nearby transport links, such as Bethnal Green and Whitechapel.
