Be it to mark Christmas, summer, or for any other reason, a corporate party is an occasion that’s all about making a good impression on associates and contacts, and rewarding the hard work of staff, so it’s important the night is a success. That said, here are some venues within the buzz of The City of London, sure to set the scene for a night to remember.
The Fox Towhouse is a stylish bar and restaurant found in the Moorgate area, a mere stone’s throw from the tube station of the same name. Housed within a listed building with unique architectural touches and fittings, the venue offers both a dining room and a private lounge. It’s ideal for smaller gatherings, with the dining room sitting just 24 guests and the venue as a whole able to accommodate a maximum of 60. The in-house staff will be able to advise you on quality wines, whilst you sample the delicious fare from the kitchen.
For those in search of something a little bigger, The Gable, also found in Moorgate, has a considerably more generous capacity of 620. This characterful venue has lots of different areas at your disposal, including the downstairs Cellar which is ideal for exclusive hire, thus keeping your options open when it comes to the scale of your party. Well connected via nearby rail links, Moorgate, Bank and Liverpool Street tube stations can all be reached in mere minutes.
Leadenhall la Tasca has an understated elegance to it, perfect for those looking for somewhere that has a professional yet welcoming air – which is why we think it’s particularly well suited to a corporate party, which generally needs to adhere to both such characteristics. The simple but effective design and décor is accented with subtle, interesting touches, and with private hire available for up to 400 people, it’s a good size too. Monument and Bank are the nearest transport links, both reachable in about 5 minutes.
140-144 Leadenhall can be found within the financial district, just moments from the Gherkin, and as such is well suited to hosting an event for the discerning business people and partygoers of London. What was once the Midland Bank, this one-of-a-kind venue is comprised of various different rooms and private areas, which are available for exclusive hire, including The Vault, the exquisite and atmospheric heart of this historic building. All-in-all, the venue can accommodate as many as 1000 guests.
Spread across 2 floors, CORE boasts a selection of 3 rooms and an additional, colourful outdoor terrace, adding up to offer a total capacity of 450. Each of these spaces has its own unique style and feel, but what unites them all is an effortless sense of cool and a striking modern aesthetic that is accented by more traditional features, like exposed brickwork. As for getting there, Mansion House and Bank tube stations are both within easy walking distance.
