If you’re putting on a press event but want to ensure there’s a decent kitchen to hand so that you can offer your guests refreshments or catering of some kind, look no further than the following list of venues, all found within London.
Interchange Atrium Kitchen has 2 main event spaces spread across a total of 3 floors, allowing for a total capacity of 250. Bright, airy, spacious and modern, it’s a space that is very flexible in its use, with a team that are more than happy to work alongside you to create a bespoke event, so don’t be afraid to throw your ideas into the mix. Found in the very heart of the iconic Camden Lock Market, it’s within easy walking distance of Chalk Farm and Camden Town.
Rye London is an industrial daylight studio, with a simple and highly contemporary white finish, complete with Nordic design touches. This minimalistic, blank canvas approach allows for the creative freedom to put your own stamp on the space, and with a focus on natural food, you can rest assured that the catering is in good hands. The intimate capacity of just 60 means you can bring a more personal touch to the day, allowing for one-on-one time with each of your guests and a better chance of impressing.
ICETANK is a hidden gem found just off Shaftsbury Avenue in the heart of the ever-popular Covent Garden. The event space is spread over 2 levels and is awash with natural light, as well as high-end equipment and contemporary furnishings and fixtures, including the likes of plasma screens, a stereo system, a projector and a fireplace. You’ll find the kitchen on the ground floor, kitted out with modern appliances and benefitting from a skylight and full-length windows.
Studio DDC is a newly opened, multi-purpose event space that features quintessentially London-style architectural touches, such as arched ceilings and extensive exposed brickwork, making for a rich and atmospheric space that really sets the scene. The capacity allows for 125 guests, with the in-house bar and kitchen operated by Disappearing Dining Club. In terms of getting there, Hoxton, Haggerston and Shoreditch High Street stations are all within easy walking distance.
19 Wigmore street is in fact a venue where the two kitchens on offer are well and truly at the very heart of the venue, often being used for the likes of demonstrations, masterclasses and interactive events. With adjoining dining space, this would be a particularly great choice for a press event if it was, say, a culinary product launch or the release of a new cookery book, being the prime setting in which to show off the goods in question. The capacity allows for around 100 people in all, and the nearest tube stops are Oxford Circus and Bond Street.
