6 Bars for Impressive Corporate Entertaining

One thing's for sure, London isn't short of bars, so picking just a handful is pretty tough. But, we've whittled it down to just six that are pretty perfect for a corporate event. Elegant Champagne bars, stylish open plan venues and ones with a more relaxed, urban feel make up a varied list of options for your next event.

1. The Pearson Room

The Pearson Room is situated right in the heart of Canary Wharf. The interiors are inspired by the 1950s, with Hitchcock as a big influence. It’s a large, stylish venue with floor-to-ceiling windows that look out over Canada Square, whilst flooding the space with natural light.

Despite its size, the venue has an intimate feel, created with comfy furniture and an impressive bar that is the focal point of the space. It’s casual, yet sophisticated enough for a party or corporate function. The venue also has a number of smaller rooms to hire, as well as a balcony for smaller functions.
