If you don’t deserve to be made to feel special on your 30th and 40th birthdays, then when do you? Below you will find a selection of great venues ideal for a big birthday, whether you are planning for yourself or on behalf of a loved one.
The Mule Bar found on the basement level of The Holy Birds is the venue’s main draw, being a truly unique offering complete in a ‘psychedelic chic’ style that means it’s full of bold colours and patterns for a warm and welcoming air and a timeless quality. There are an additional two private dining rooms adjacent to the bar, and these three spaces can be hired on an individual basis or combined as needed, adding up to offer a total capacity of 200. Aldgate and Liverpool Street stations can both be reached in little over five minutes on foot.
A Victorian warehouse complex, Swan Wharf is comprised of more than 25,000 square feet of space, both indoor and outdoor. Found by the River Lea in the creative district of Hackney Wick, the venue benefits from wonderful views of the Olympic Park. Though some modernisation has taken place to bring the venue up to standard, the building’s authentic character lives on in thanks to various period features, including exposed brickwork and high ceilings.
The team at Adventure pride themselves first and foremost on being able to create bespoke events for their clients, working with you closely to bring your ideas to life. This funky bar has a cool vibe and a modern feel, with a total capacity that allows for up to 200 guests to attend. Easily reached from throughout the rest of the city, Clapham North and Clapham High Street stations are both a mere stone’s throw away. Individual areas can be booked out, but exclusive hire is also an option should you want the place to yourselves.
Village Underground is a turn-of-the-century warehouse venue that has been sensitively renovated to accommodate a variety of creative events, from exhibitions to club nights, and theatre performances to private parties. Complete with characterful arches, extensive exposed brickwork and vast ceiling height in some places, it’s a fantastic place to really set the scene for the evening. In terms of reaching it from further afield, Old Street and Shoreditch High Street are the nearest transport links.
Launching in mid-2017, The Postal Museum is one of the city’s newest offerings on the events scene. Aiming to be a flexible option, it will offer itself up for events as varied as dinners, drinks receptions, award ceremonies, exhibitions, product launches, fashion shows, business meetings and photo shoots; testament to its vast appeal. Found below ground, it will bring guaranteed atmosphere and an immersive edge to any occasion, complete with a ride through 100-year-old secret tunnels.
