More about Intimate Event Venues in London

When it comes to planning a small party, the options are endless – but finding the right venue is key. Luckily, no matter what kind of small event you're planning, the perfect venue is out there. London is full of intimate spaces that are ideal for intimate weddings, dinner parties, receptions and meetings.

To make your search easier, we've compiled a list of the best small party venues in London, as well as our team's top tips on what to look for when booking an intimate venue. So, whether you're in the market for a North London townhouse or a West End penthouse, we've got you covered!

What are the advantages of small venues?

Small venues offer a more intimate and exclusive experience for your guests, which can make your event feel more special. Often you'll find some real gems hidden away in London's less-crowded corners! Another advantage of hiring a small space is that you have more control over the atmosphere and ambience of your event. In a large venue, it can be harder to ensure that your guests feel like they're part of the same party. But in a smaller setting, it's much easier to create a more cohesive atmosphere. They're also great for budget-conscious party planners, as small spaces are typically more affordable than large venues. They also tend to be more flexibly priced, so you can save money on your event without sacrificing quality or style.

What are the best areas for small venues in London?

The best areas for small venues in London depend on your event's budget, style and location. North London is home to a number of charming townhouses and stately homes, while South London is perfect for more budget-friendly venues. East London is known for its hipster vibes and eclectic array of event spaces, while West London boasts a selection of chic private dining rooms and stylish bars. Wherever you 're based, you're sure to find the perfect small venue in London.

What should you consider when booking an intimate venue?

When booking an intimate venue, there are a few key things to keep in mind: Capacity: How many people do you need to accommodate? Even with small parties, you'll want to make sure your guests are comfortable and that there's space to mingle, eat, drink, and be merry without being squeezed elbow-to-elbow!

Location: Where do you want the event to be located? If you're planning a small wedding, for example, you might want to be close to public transport or have easy access to parking. If you're planning a dinner party, on the other hand, you might want to be near a great bars for after-dinner drinks.

Budget: How much are you willing to spend on the venue? Small venues can be very affordable, but it's important to know your budget upfront. Remember that you'll need to factor in catering, so make sure to leave room in your budget for food and drink!

Amenities: What kind of amenities does the venue have? If you're planning a meeting or conference, for example, you'll want to make sure the venue has AV equipment and WiFi.

Atmosphere: What kind of atmosphere are you hoping to create? If you're planning a sophisticated dinner party, for example, you might want a venue with dim lighting and soft music. If you're planning a lively reception, on the other hand, you'll want a space with plenty of natural light and room to move.

Our top tips for finding the perfect intimate venue

  • Start your search early: The best venues get booked up fast, so it's important to start your search as early as possible.
  • Stay flexible on dates: Your options will be far wider if you haven’t committed yourself to one date, so don’t send out a ‘Save The Date’ until you’ve found the right spot!
  • Narrow down your requirements early: Make sure you know exactly what you’re going to need at your event so you don’t waste time looking at venues that can’t accommodate your requests. You can filter your search by location, capacity, and much more on our search page.
  • Think outside the box: Smaller venues can often be more versatile than larger spaces, so don't be afraid to think outside the box when it comes to your event location. Maybe the answer to your event search is a hidden speakeasy, or a cafe that can be transformed into the space of your dreams.
  • Consider your guests: When choosing a venue, always keep your guests in mind. Make sure the space is accessible to all, and has good transport links to keep your guests safe.
