More about Party Venues in Central London

What types of party venues can you hire in London?

London is known for being a stand-out city for a celebration, with endless fantastic venues on offer to host your special event. If you’re planning a party, the capital’s an amazing place for it: with iconic postcodes, the best variety of venues in the country, and top event entertainment at your fingertips, your event’s guaranteed to be a smash hit! But with so many on offer, it’s just knowing where to start that’s the issue…

There are many different occasions where you might host a party, and most of them have different requirements for a venue. For example, for formal events like gala dinners or charity fundraising parties, you’ll likely want a grand and impressive setting (something classic and historic like RSA House or 41 Portland Place ought to do the trick), whereas for a birthday party, or office party, you might be looking for something a little more intimate and relaxed.

Different times of year dictate what type of venue you’ll want to hire, as well. Sometimes finding a party venue with outdoor space might be a requirement for your event - for instance, if you’re planning a summer party - so you’ll need to look at outdoor function venues, venues with gardens, or even a rooftop venue like the terrace at Events@No6. Meanwhile, for events at the other end of the year, like Christmas parties, you’ll probably be set on finding an indoor party venue to keep out the cold! Luckily, in London, there’s something to fit every brief and keep your party on the right side of British weather!

Aside from the obvious concerns, not all venues offer exactly the same services, and it’s useful to think about this when you’re thinking of hiring a venue for a party. First and foremost, you can choose between dry-hire venues, where you can bring in caterers and supply your own alcohol, or venues with catering and bars in-house. You’ll need to consider which will be best for your type of party and budget; for guidance, check out our blog on wet hire vs dry hire. Here are a few venues where you can arrange your own catering to give you an idea of what a dry hire venue can offer.

Another important thing to note is that there’s a difference between private venue hire, where you’ll have exclusive use of the venue, and function room hire, where you’ll have part of the venue reserved for your party, but there may be other people using the building.

For large parties, most people opt for private party venues, which work well for events like black tie parties, receptions, and cocktail parties, as well as larger birthday parties and graduation parties. Many venues offer this, with a few of our favourites being The HAC, and One Moorgate Place. However, for after parties, office parties, or smaller birthday parties, you might be happy to hire part of the venue, like the roof terrace at The Century Club, or even the Number Group Boat at Studio 9294 for a real swanky dinner party!
