Host Parties With Style At The Little Scarlet Door

From its quirky, characterful design, to its retro entertainment, prime location, and versatile layout, this venue takes corporate parties to a new level. A hip cocktail establishment with vibes on tap, let's take a look inside the coolest kid on its Soho block, and our top unique venue of the month - The Little Scarlet Door. Come on in!  

It fuses fun, unique aesthetics

The Little Scarlet Door features a unique medley of decor, fusing the quirks of a chic New York loft apartment with pops of colour and eclectic furniture that give it its eccentric British flair. Decked out with comfy seating, hanging lights, and curated artwork, think of it as the pad you wish you had - homely but haute-couture.

The venue's sure to have something to intrigue every guest, from the luxurious sofas in the basement, to the well-stocked, curated bar that keeps the party in the heart of the venue. With candy-cane striped pouffes, high bar stools, and colourful furniture, arriving at the venue's fun and quirky open plan living room is like entering a beautifully-appointed sweet shop for adults!

However, head on down to the basement and you're in for a different kind of treat: down here the jewel-toned walls and furnishings set the scene for a sophisticated (but undeniably funky) party, with plush velvet sofas, atmospheric lighting, and an abundance of rugs and cushions to kick off the cosy-chic vibes - not to mention the giant disco ball, which is enough to get even the most corporate of clients in the mood for a boogie!

It's as central as they come

Situated in oh-so-happening Soho, an easy walk to the underground stations at Tottenham Court Road, Leicester Square, and Covent Garden, this is an ideal location to set your event in. Not only is it unbeatably well-connected, but wherever they're travelling from, your guests are guaranteed to be swept up by the buzz of central London, and be in high spirits when they arrive at the venue.

It's full of quirky entertainment

Not one to sit back and rest on its laurels (and by that we mean impeccable decor), The Little Scarlet Door also offers up unbeatable entertainment - in the form of a Nintendo 64 that will have your guests jousting for a trip down memory lane. After all, there's nothing like turning up the nostalgia factor to make sure your event stays in guests' minds for a long time.

But, with resident DJs (and the aforementioned disco ball), they'll soon be up on their feet! You could also bring in external entertainment to complement the venue, from magicians or saxophonists, to croupiers complete with a pop-up casino to get your event etched in guests' memories!

It's unbeatably versatile

Putting on a drinks reception? Launching a new line of products? Staging a showcase or networking evening? The Little Scarlet Door is the place to be! Its versatile spaces are sophisticated enough to impress important guests, but are also perfect for adding some pizzazz to any event.

The popping, retro aesthetic of the bar continues into the cosy nooks and crannies of the rest of the ground floor event space, where the colourful decor lends itself to an energetic event backdrop. Ideal for adding some individual flair to a fun drinks event, this space is also dressed up enough to make speeches and presentations inspiring and memorable.

Our top tip for a memorable evening? Serve welcome drinks and nibbles in the open-plan living area on arrival, take the chance to say a few words to guests, and then head down to the basement where the night can continue for as long as you like!
