If you have a big birthday coming in 2015, or another occasion to celebrate, but are struggling to find a perfect location to host your event, take a look at our quick guide to some of London’s best party hotspots!
All Star Lanes
If you aren’t familiar with ‘All Star Lanes’ you may not guess what the theme is…we’ll give you a clue…its bowling! And with the three ‘All Star Lanes’ locations to choose from; Holborn, Bayswater and Old Street, you are able to select based on your geographical preference.
With an old-school American rockabilly vibe, each of the venues cater for parties, with private bowling rooms catering for up to 120 people and exclusive venue hire allowing between 250-500 guests.
And it’s not only bowling on the cards…each venue has dining, cocktail bars and a dance area!
With a private area for up to 200 people (100 sit down), and venue hire for 400 (200 sit down), Bodo Schloss on Kensington High Street is a fun and truly unique experience. Based on an Austrian ski-lodge theme, the venue offers guests the opportunities to transform their celebration into a raucous Bavarian party at any time of the year.
Wonderfully quaint, staff dress in traditional Lederhosen and Dirndl; serving up delicious Austrian cuisine. Exert mixologists create special cocktails, and the vibe is Oktoberfest, Oktoberfest, Oktoberfest!
Are you a creative type? Or have an appreciation for the arts? Well, the Saatchi Gallery may provide the perfect backdrop for your event.
Located on the Kings Road, the venue has twelve galleries available for events; from sit down dinners and performances to reception parties. Additionally, the gallery can host 1,500 people, renting out the entire spaces.
With high ceilings and contrasting wooden floors, the gallery combines a wonderfully traditional exterior with a modern interior; providing an elegant setting for all events.
Located on Fulham Road, beaver Lodge celebrates all things Americana; with animal skins, cow print, log fires and tongue-in-cheek displays of the wild west. Hiring the venue will allow for a guest capacity of 180, and is the perfect place to hold your own USA themed fancy dress party…think lumberjack shirts, daisy dukes and cowboy boots!
And you never know…you may get treated to the staff choreographed line dancing show! Yeehawww!
House of Commons
If you are looking to put on a somewhat more refined event, then you may want to considerer hiring space at the House of Commons.
With around eight spaces to hire, all with different capacities, hosting your event at this UNESCO World Heritage Site will add a touch of class, and of course history, to your frivolities.
Situated in the heart of Westminster, SkyLoft is the ultimate warehouse event space at the top of the iconic Millbank Tower. The space is a flexible and contemporary venue, offering 360° degree views over London.
The space combines the popular aesthetic of the New York loft style penthouse, with a quintessential retro British design. The exposed brickwork, for example, was reclaimed from an old Manchester cotton mill.
Perfect for receptions and dinners alike, the venue can host up to 500 people.
