As the new year begins, it's the ideal time to host an uplifting, engaging event for clients and stakeholders, and there's no better place for it than Fairgame! Based in prestigious Canary Wharf, our unique venue of the month takes the novel concept of a fairground for adults, and runs with it!
With classic fairground games, fabulously nostalgic food and drinks, and an electric atmosphere, it's an ideal, out-of-the-box venue which is sure to make your event stay in guests' minds for a long time! Roll up, roll up: here's why this month's unique venue is a game-changer for events bridging work and play!
It's a game-changing backdrop for events
When you think of planning corporate events, a fairground might not be the first setting that comes to mind. But Fairgame isn't a traditional fairground: set inside a huge, beautifully-appointed building in Canary Wharf, with two floors and a stunning bar and restaurant area, this venue is the fairground grown up!
Decked out in bright pastel tones and colourful lights, with a sleek aesthetic and comfortable seating areas, the venue is ideal for a relaxed event, or for encouraging your guests to let their hair down after a conference or company update. There's a mezzanine with exclusive booths, a private room called the Holy Duck Lounge, and plenty of space to sit and eat and drink throughout - but take it from us: keeping your guests away from the fairground games is guaranteed to be an uphill battle!
It's not 'shy' of entertainment
The games space at Fairgame features a selection of fantastic games to get everyone in the swing of socialising - after all, there's nothing like a bit of healthy competition to break the ice! From throwing bean bags to shooting water pistols, the entertainment here is a trip down memory lane which is guaranteed to get everyone engaged.
Fancy testing your strength, coordination, or sheer willpower against your colleagues or clients? There's a wide enough selection of games to give any attendee a chance to excel, which is ideal for bringing guests together and getting conversation flowing. Plus, unlike a run-of-the-mill drinks reception, an event here is sure to be remembered and give your attendees something to talk about for months to come.
It serves up some truly tasty fare
Fairgame takes the nostalgia-rich fare of a childhood trip to the fairground, and makes it into an adult's dream. Think fancy burgers and hot dogs, made by the likes of London institutions Burger&Beyond, and Rudy's Napoletano Pizza, and Dos Mas Tacos. And for those with a sweet tooth or a hankering to really embrace their inner child, there's a Candy Stand (featuring the likes of Prosecco candyfloss and boozy sweets), as well as ice cream from Hackney Gelato.
And the fun doesn't stop at the food: it wouldn't be a funfair for adults without a tipple to steady your arm for Whac-A-Mole! The venue's in-house Bumper Bars serve up a delicious selection of cocktails, wines, and beers, as well as specials like frozen margaritas. You'll find nods to more classics in the drinks, like cocktails with a cloud of candy floss on top to sweeten the deal even more!
It's a (Big) Top spot for a gathering
It would be fair to say that Fairgame's hit the jackpot with London locations: with a setting right on the water in Canary Wharf, just a short walk from the Jubilee Line, DLR, and the Elizabeth Line, getting to the venue is a breeze from just about anywhere in the city. Plus, with some of the city's best conference and meeting spaces surrounding the venue, you're in the ideal spot for a seamless transition from business to leisure!
