As far as concept venues go, SUSHISAMBA must surely be one of the most unique you could expect to come across in all of London, somehow managing to combine the culture, cuisine, music and aesthetics of Japan, Brazil and Peru. Split across 2 floors, in addition to the open-air terrace space, the interior benefits from large-windows, ensuring that you always make the most of the striking outlook onto the capital. There’s a generous overall capacity of around 650, but for more intimate gatherings, consider the 40-capacity private lounge.
To really embrace the full Boundary experience, you could enjoy a delicious meal in the restaurant before or after stepping out onto the charming terrace for a drinks reception, before staying the night in one of the individually furnished bedrooms. Beautifully appointed, this unique venue is located within the heart of the popular Shoreditch area, comfortable walking distance from the likes of Old Street, Liverpool Street and Shoreditch High Street stations.
Serving as a fully outdoor terrace in the summer months, The Magic Roundabout is transformed into a heated, tented space throughout the winter to allow it to continue to host a myriad of great events, from product launches to private parties, and from photo shoots to club nights. Boasting 3 bars, a dance floor and award-winning street food, not to mention a generous capacity of 550 and great local transport links, this is the ideal place to chill out and have some fun.
The roof terrace at Karma Sanctum is one of Soho’s best hidden gems, tucked away discreetly above the bustling streets.

Back at ground level, you’ll be well served by the close proximity to good rail links, such as Piccadilly Circus, Green Park and Oxford Circus.
