With Halloween right around the corner, you shouldn’t waste any time if you want to secure a booking for one of London’s best party venues. We’ve featured some below to get you on your way so you hopefully don’t miss out.
Kontiki Studios is surely one of the most unique warehouse conversions in the city. Somehow managing to blend the best qualities of a gentleman’s smoking den and a museum of curiosities, all manner of eye-catching, quirky details can be found throughout, including an assortment of taxidermy and antiques. With a great roster of DJs they can call upon whenever needed, organising the entertainment for your party shouldn’t pose any problems.
Specialising in corporate events, House of Detention would certainly make for an atmospheric space in which to gather with colleagues and clients for a themed soiree. This hugely evocative venue has a fascinating past, having originally been built as a prison in the 17th century, and later used as an air raid shelter during the Blitz. Now, it’s a one-of-a-kind event space with a look and feel like no other. If these walls could talk they’d have quite the tales to tell…
Bones and Pearl offers a layout that lends itself to flexibility, with areas at your disposal including the downstairs parlour, complete with kitchen; the upstairs gallery and exhibition space which includes its own bar; and a garden area which boasts a cocktail Tiki bar and a barbecue. Well connected, both Seven Sisters and Tottenham Hale stations can be reached within about 10 minutes.
The Exhibitionist is the next generation of luxury lifestyle boutique hotels. Housed within beautifully restored 18th century townhouses, there are 8 galleries on offer here, with art being at the very core of this unique offering. The pieces they showcase are updated on a regular basis to support the rise of up-and-coming artists, meaning the backdrop is always changing and thus giving the venue great appeal for repeat visits as there’s always something new and exciting to see. As for party purposes, late licenses are available for those who want to celebrate into the wee small hours.
If you want to opt for a daytime party, Generator London would be a good choice, as this offering is typically available for hire between 9am and 5pm. Glimpses of the city’s heritage can be found throughout this unique venue, including the likes of reclaimed timber, exposed brick walls and hot-rolled black steel. Bespoke graphics, art installations and other quirky, characterful details add a fun and creative dynamic, not least of which is the life-size London bus situated in the bar!
