Goodbye Social Distancing, Hello Summer Parties at Smith’s of Smithfield

If you’re anything like us, you love summer parties of all kinds. On rooftops, in bars, in restaurants… no matter what kind of summer party you’re picturing, there’s nothing we love more.

So, we bet you’ll want to find the best summer party venue possible once social distancing is over. If you’re looking for a venue that your guests won’t forget in a hurry, Smith’s of Smithfield will hit the right note. It’s Grade II listed, situated bang in the centre of London, and has the added bonus of some of the most spectacular views in London. What more could you ask for?!

Here are our five top reasons for hosting your summer party at Smith’s of Smithfield.

1. A touch of history

We know we’ve already mentioned that Smith’s of Smithfield is Grade II listed, but once you get a look at it, we bet you’ll go on about it too! This four-floor building is located in the very heart of Smithfield Market – London’s only working meat market – and boasts a truly impressive industrial look from days gone by (with swanky modern decor to round it all off!). From exposed red brick walls to large windows and pillars, it makes a truly memorable backdrop for any summer party.

2. Amazing views

If we had to pick our favourite thing about Smith’s of Smithfields (and it’s a hard shout, we tell you!), it has to be their unbeatable roof terrace. With panoramic views of Smithfield Market, the Barbican and pretty much the whole of London, it’s the ideal place to soak in the sun as the day turns to night, before admiring the bright lights of the capital.
