Planning a meeting in Bermondsey? Want a venue that feels a world away from boring old office blocks and cubicles? Well, we’ve got you covered. Take a look at our hand-picked selection of unique spaces, all of which make an excellent alternative setting for a meeting.
Tanner Warehouse is housed within a converted warehouse, as the name itself would no doubt suggest. Offering use of a fully-loaded bar, a sleek, open kitchen which sends out top notch food, and flexible event space suited to all kinds of gatherings, it also benefits from friendly staff and the very latest AV equipment, ensuring that everything is taken care of inhouse and runs as smoothly as possible. The building sits just a stone’s throw from London Bridge and can accommodate up to 450 people.
Mondrian London at Sea Containers brings a bold and exciting new energy to the city’s events scene, managing to seamlessly blend the sumptuousness of a boutique with the flair of an ultra-modern event space. Glass-sided, it certainly makes the most of its riverside location, offering wonderful views out onto the water and the capital’s stunning skyline beyond. Having hosted everything from weddings and late-night parties to formal dinners and conferences, they are already well versed in adapting to specific requirements.
The Arch Collective offers guests a more intimate vibe, with a minimal yet contemporary internal space tucked beneath a railway arch that comes complete with climate control for maximum comfort and a fully equipped kitchen for any catering needs. It’s flexibility that’s at the heart of this venue, however, being in essence a blank canvas ripe for transformation. Meanwhile, the private garden by the front serves as a wonderful extra area, ideal as a breakaway space or for a welcoming reception before the meeting itself begins.
Also found under a railway arch, though distinctly different in feel, The Bottle Shop is a versatile mezzanine space with a stripped-back, industrial flavour. As a craft beer shop by trade, they have more than 350 bottles and a huge variety of kegs, most of which cannot be found anywhere else in London. They are understandably a popular choice for tastings, if you wanted to go completely left-field and informal, but the space itself does still lend itself to a proper sit-down meeting as well.
The beauty of Brasserie Blank South Bank is that it has various different spaces that can be hired out in numerous different configurations depending on the scale and needs of your meeting, including full venue hire, 3 private dining rooms which can also be opened up to create a deluxe space, two bars and an additional private dining suite. The style throughout is understated yet sophisticated, with the total capacity reaching a generous 500. Mere minutes from Waterloo station and close to various iconic landmarks, it also benefits from being in a prime location.
