If you’re planning a daytime meeting and you want a setting that is unique to help it really stand out from the crowd, look no further than the following selection.
The personalised approach and excellent level of service is one of The Driver’s biggest draws, which combined with its blend of modern boutique-style elegance and timeless charm, serves to make it a welcoming space to relax and unwind. With five floors to its name and exclusive hire an option, you certainly won’t be short of space; there’s even a rooftop terrace should you be lucky enough to catch some good weather. Other great features include free Wi-Fi, projectors and screens, a bespoke sound system and DJ booths.
Spread over two floors with an additional spacious outdoor terrace, Clerkenwell & Social, with its 250-person capacity, is another venue certainly not lacking in options when it comes to the desired size and layout for your meeting. The eclectic design and literary theme make for a one-of-a-kind backdrop, whilst the hand-crafted pizzas and house-infused cocktails would make for quite the tempting lunch menu. The nearest rail link, Farringdon, can be reached in just a few minutes.
If it’s a laid-back vibe you want to accompany some great food and drink, The Princess could be just the ticket. Recently renovated, it has re-established itself as a friendly local, with three floors that include the first-floor dining room and the lower-ground floor bar. One of its best and most distinguishing features however is surely the beer garden with its Banksy artwork adorning the walls. Situated in the beautiful Primrose Hill area, Chalk Farm station is just five minutes away.
The conference facilities at Arundel House underwent major refurbishment in 2013, with state-of-the-art technology also installed to ensure it meets modern standards expected from a business venue. The light, spacious and elegant rooms can lend themselves to all manner of gatherings however, including formal seated meals and more casual drinks receptions, depending on the feel you wanted for your particular meeting. Found in a wonderful location, the venue benefits from views of the Thames and sits right opposite Temple tube station.
Carlton House Terrace boasts no less than ten different event spaces, all of which are flexible in their use and yet grand and sophisticated in their finish, with stunning ornate details and traditional period touches found throughout. The vast windows let in an abundance of natural light, whilst also allowing you to get maximum enjoyment from the wonderful views out onto The Mall and St James’ Park. Both Charing Cross and Piccadilly Circus can be reached within just five minutes.
Being part of a War Memorial building, The Alex Fitch Room is full of enchanting, authentic artefacts generously donated by the Fitch family in honour of their son, whose portrait proudly hangs above the fireplace, permanently lit out of respect for the fallen. As you might expect, there is a real poignancy to this intimate, wood-clad space, which can accommodate just 20 people, making it ideal for gatherings with a decidedly more personal flair and plenty of atmosphere.
