Pop Brixton

Pop Brixton is comprised of a range of flexible spaces ideal for independent businesses and fledgling start-ups that have cleverly made use of otherwise disused land. The main space is Pop Box: Made from old shipping containers, it boasts triple height ceilings and can be combined with the adjoining outside space for capacities of up to 450. Other areas include The Dining Room, suited to more intimate gatherings; The Greenhouse, which serves as a picturesque backdrop; The Greenhouse Table, a semi-private reception space; and The Kitchen, should you have any catering needs.

Yauatcha City

Yauatcha City is an all-day dim sum dining experience, which is a must for relaxed yet sophisticated corporate parties. In addition to the main restaurant and casual dining spaces, there are two bars to ensure the drinks keep flowing and two outside terraces, meaning you can make the most of any nice weather you’re lucky enough to catch. Both partial and exclusive hire are available, leaving you with plenty of scope when it comes to the size of your event.

Pewterers’ Hall

For those in search of a more traditional, old-school vibe, Pewterer’s Hall, which is one of the city’s few Livery Halls with its own tranquil gardens, is well worth considering. It has a range of charming period features which give the spaces a sense of timeless grandeur should you want to make a good impression on your guests, of whom you can invite up to 120. Located in the City of London, the nearest transport links include the likes of St Paul’s, Moorgate and City Thameslink.

Alexandra Palace

Alexandra Palace is a stunning extensive venue which offers outdoor spaces which are as beautiful and adaptable as its interiors. The 196 acres of parkland and panoramic views out onto the city’s skyline form a truly striking and unforgettable setting for any summer gathering, and to make things as straight forward as possible for those seeking to make a booking, they have a selection of brilliant party packages already put together, including The Summer Party, which includes room hire, a Pimms reception, a BBQ or bowl food lunch, strawberries and cream, and team activities in the grounds.

Proud Camden

Proud Camden was specifically designed with flexibility in mind and its layout plays a large part in achieving this. The Main Gallery with its generous exhibition space and photographic backdrop leads on to no less than seven individual horse stables which have all been transformed into unique party spaces, including a soundproofed karaoke room so you can belt out your favourite tunes without scaring off the rest of the guests! The capacity allows for as many as 1000 guests to attend, and the nearest tube stops – Chalk Farm and Camden Town – can both be reached in well under ten minutes.

Grain Store

Be it a cocktail party, a more formal seated dinner or a laid-back standing reception you have in mind, Grain Store has got you covered, with excellent service guaranteed. The wonderful contemporary feel combined with characterful touches at this theatrical, open kitchen give every event it hosts the extra wow factor, whilst the huge terrace overlooking the fountains of Granary Square is also another distinguishing feature that makes it particularly well suited to a summer soiree.
