Go Wild with an Event at the Rainforest Cafe

We don’t know about you, but we're itching to escape the UK for somewhere just a little bit more exotic. We’ve been looking for the next best thing… and we think we’ve found it!

If you can’t escape to the rainforest, why not bring the rainforest to you with an event at the Rainforest Cafe?! Whether it’s a conference, private dining event, meeting or party, it’s the perfect location to get some much-needed escapism and create an unforgettable experience whatever the occasion.

Escape the everyday

If you really want to feel like you’ve set foot inside the Amazon jungle, the Rainforest Cafe doesn’t go about it half-heartedly. We’re talking moving animatronics, waterfalls, tropical fish tanks, periodic thunderstorms and all the sounds and sights you’d expect from the jungle.

It’s the ideal venue for a corporate event with a twist or simply to throw a party with friends and family who you might otherwise be whisking away to the other side of the world for an adventure. Either way, it’s unique, memorable and certain to satisfy that itch amongst those jet setters on your guest list!

A very London location

Our favourite thing about the Rainforest Cafe is the exotic experience it offers. But our second favourite thing is that we don’t have to go far to feel like we’ve crossed the Atlantic!

You’ll find the Rainforest Cafe in Piccadilly Circus, right in the heart of London and super conveniently located just a stone’s throw from the Piccadilly Line. So, although you’ll get to enjoy all the sights and sounds of the jungle, you won’t have to travel long to find it – it’s easy to get to from every corner of the capital, and almost as easy to reach from every corner of the country! Basically, we’re talking all the escapism you need without the flight delays, the jet lag or the lost luggage.

Not only that but once you’ve had your fill of rainforest grub, you can step straight back into the hustle and bustle of London’s West End, with a whole host of theatres, museums and historic architecture just around the corner – ideal for any attendees who are looking to make a day of it!

Forest fun

So, we know we’ve banged on about how the Rainforest Cafe just doesn’t feel like part of the dreary, grey UK we all know (and love…?!). But that’s not the only thing that makes this space such an awesome spot to make new memories with friends and colleagues.

The Rainforest Cafe is a kind of a cross between a vibrant restaurant and lively club with a fun and playful atmosphere. The Forest Floor, which is the Rainforest Cafe’s most-hired event space, has its own bar, disco lighting and sound system, meaning you can customise it for your own unique needs – whether it’s a board meeting, a product launch or a children’s birthday party! Or, if you’re after a more intimate space, you’ll love the Butterfly Room with its snake-themed bar and quirky animal-legged stools!

Trust the team

The Rainforest Cafe may be an unusual event venue, but its team are no strangers to organising wow-worthy events. Whatever your aims and whatever your budget, the Rainforest Cafe team will work with you to make your vision a reality – and they know it’s the personal touches that really count!

With the option to hire just one room or the whole venue, they can accommodate any event size from six to 650 people. Either way, we’re talking great food, great drinks and a big dose of jungle magic!
