Check it out here: Lockhouse
Full-length windows mean Lockhouse is bright and airy throughout. The venue specialises in craft beers, artisan cocktails, great coffees and delicious food. So, organising catering and refreshments is a breeze. As for the building itself, it overlooks Grand Union Canal.

Check it out here: Artist Residence
This is an ideal option if you want to bring a more personal approach to the hosting. Here, you can focus on one-on-one time with VIPs over a lavish dinner or a few drinks. Snug seating gathered by the fire enhances the cosy atmosphere. But, rest assured the private bar and surround sound music system are on hand if you want to liven things up a little.
