With 2017 right around the corner, here are some of the best and most unique venues set to be the next big thing, well worth keeping an eye out for if you want your event to really stand out from the crowd.
Officially opening in December 2016, 58VE is one of the newest and most exciting venues to emerge on the London events scene. Suitable for a wide range of different event types, both private and corporate alike, spaces on offer here include a purpose-built event space, meeting rooms and an exclusive lounge and balcony that offer stunning views out onto the Thames and the city skyline. Centrally located, it’s well connected via public transport, with Temple and Blackfriars being the closest tube stops to hand.
TRAMP is a private members club, restaurant and cocktail bar found in the ever popular area of Mayfair, being as sophisticated and steeped in quality as you would no doubt expect such a venue to be. So reputable is this stylish venue in fact, it has welcomed many a well-known star through its doors over the years, and it can play host to everything from fashion shows and photoshoots to press days, private dinner parties and film screenings, to name but a few.
Sky Garden is comprised of 3 floors in all, and is in fact home to London’s highest landscaped gardens. The lushness of the greenery is contrasted very effectively by the cityscape which lies beyond, with full length windows letting you soak up the stunning panoramic views out across the capital. With a total of 45,000 square feet of space on offer, there is a very generous maximum capacity on 650 for you to utilise, making it ideal for larger scale gatherings.
Having first opened its doors in 1940, The Lighthouse has been through a number of guises over the years, but under new ownership was recently refurbished and has now been granted Grade II listed status. Updated to include state-of-the-art, modern facilities, yet still retaining the charm of its art deco past when it comes to the style, it manages to seamlessly blend old and new to great effect. With a capacity of 2950, you also needn’t worry about having to be stingy when it comes to the guest list.
The Tabernacle is also Grade II listed, though this venue started out as a church way back in 1887. Now a theatre, it has been the setting for everything from Christmas parties to conferences, and its broad appeal is easy to understand when you see how gorgeous it is, boasting a Curved Romanesque façade of red brick and terracotta, and towers on either side for guaranteed impact from the very moment you arrive. Based in West London, the nearest rail links connecting you to the rest of the city are Westbourne Park and Ladbroke Grove.
