Summer Events

Every single party is unique, of course, but there are a few points that we think are key to each and every party venue booking. Here are our top tips …..


What kind of party are you hosting?

The choice of best party venues in London depends on who you are inviting and the type event you are trying to create.  Consider who you are inviting and which style of venue would impress the client – do you need an ‘instagrammable’ venue?

How many people will be invited?

Hiring a space for 300 guests when you’re only expecting 100 is neither cost effective or practical – you don’t want your guests to look lost in the space

What time of year will the event be taking place?

There are some great party venues in London  and some can offer some outside space so that your guests can enjoy views of the amazing London skyline -add a little wow to your event

What type of food do you wish to serve to your guests?

How formal or informal are you wanting the event to be? Do you want to offer nibbles or a seated meal, BBQ or buffet?

How will your guests be entertained?

Do you want to have background music to create some atmosphere or would your entertainment be the focus of the event or section of the evening?

What style of event are you going for?

It’s really important to have a clear idea and understanding of what you want for your event and from the venue


Do bear in mind location – take into account how guests are going to get there and get home after the party. Keep an open mind though as you could miss a fab venue that might have you may not have considered at first.
