10 Unique Party Venues in London That Will Wow Your Guests
Hosting a memorable party is so much more than just great food and entertainment; the venue itself can set the tone for your event. London offers an array of unique party venues that are sure to leave your guests thrilled. From trendy rooftop bars to historical landmarks, so we’ve put our heads together to provide some useful insight into ten of our favourite extraordinary party venues in London that will be sure to impress your guests.
1. BUSH HALL
Originally built by a publisher in 1904, one of a trio of London dance halls he built for each of his daughters, Bush Hall is the only surviving of the three. Since 2001, the building has been returned to its former musical glory. Based in the vibrant heart of West London, they are a fully independent, grassroots music and events venue. There’s a real feeling of history to the place. It’s been a soup kitchen during the war, a bingo hall, a snooker hall and now it’s just this really vibey place that feels steeped in history. We love it!
Kachette is an arched event venue with bare brick walls located on Old Street in East London’s Street art district Shoreditch. It’s a dry hire venue so it serves as this brilliant blank canvas where we can get our creative juices flowing to build a truly bespoke party for our clients. The railway arch venue was once home to the original ticket hall of Shoreditch Railway Station and it’s got this fab clock up ahead that smacks of a bygone era and provides a unique atmosphere.
3. THE SKY GARDEN
At the top of the Walkie Talkie building, the Sky Garden is a lush oasis with fab indoor gardens and unbeatable views of the city. Offering both nature and architecture, it creates a breathtaking party setting. In short, it’s absolutely stunning. And definitely for those with the deeper pockets!
4. THE VICTORIAN BATH HOUSE
The Victorian Bath House: Step back in time and host your party at the Victorian Bath House, a former Turkish bath turned event space. With its opulent decor and luxurious ambience, it’s a venue that beautifully brings together history with contemporary sophistication. This venue is one of our favourites. We once did a really opulent Great Gatsby party there and the venue lent itself to the theme just perfectly.
5. HOUSE OF KOKO
KOKO, a music venue, artist community, and a cultural institution with 120 years of history. We are very proud to be Founder Members of this epic new private members club! A look inside ‘The House’, a beautiful private members club, attached to the iconic music venue, reveals just a glimpse of the countless exceptional spaces available to hire. From decadent dinners cooked on the warm Stage Kitchen’s open fire, to late nights with your personal bartender in the hidden vinyl rooms, to the thrill of finding secret Door 101 and dancing the night away on the KOKO stage, the house has sixteen beautiful spaces to enjoy.
6. KEW GARDENS
Nature lovers will appreciate the beauty of Kew Gardens as a party venue. With its vast botanical gardens and elegant glasshouses, you can host an outdoor soirée surrounded by lush landscapes and vibrant blooms. A champagne reception overlooking the glasshouse is a must over the summer months! And The Orangery is just a wonderful space that can be transformed into a really opulent party space. The Masonic Temple at The Andaz Hotel: This Grecian-style temple is perhaps Liverpool Street’s best-kept secret. One of London’s most unique event spaces, the original Masonic Temple dates back to 1912 and is considered one of the greatest of its time. Its magnificent marble, zodiac gold ceiling, and original masonic thrones create such an atmosphere! The Temple has hosted celebrities like Lady Gag, Paloma Faith and Alice Cooper. You don’t need to change a thing. It’s just a question of stepping inside a completely magical room.
7. THE GERKIN
Hosting an event in the unique shape of The Gherkin can be an unforgettable experience. There are two floors that can be hired. With its iconic glass dome roof and panoramic views, the top floors of The Gherkin impress from every angle. From corporate and special anniversary parties to weddings and breakfast conferences – Helix restaurant and Iris bar, located on level 39 and 40, can be transformed to fit any occasion. It’s a cracker!
