I have just compiled my own list of London's top 10 party venues, what do you think?
My top 10 London Venues
1. Natural History Museum
How anyone can argue with The NHM as London’s No 1 event venue is beyond me. A real ‘Landmark’ space, party under the dinosaur, in the stunning Earth Galleries, and now even have a BBQ alongside the Darwin Centre. nhm.ac.uk/business-centre/exclusive-events/index.html
2. Madame Tussauds
A really fantastic party venue, where else can you party with Michael Jackson, The Beatles and Sadam Hussein? Michael and his team really understand how to have a party, which is proven by their fantastic industry events!
3. Kensington Roof Gardens
For a London club to have been open for as long as the Roof Gardens, it must have something special, and Kensington Roof Gardens does, three stunning themed gardens, pink flamingos and a fantastic restaurant. I wouldn’t bet against this one still being here in another 30 years.
4. One Marylebone
New to the event scene, One Marylebone, is a beautiful venue, in a fantastic location near London’s West End. For a small to medium sized elegant dinner, you’ll find One Marylebone hard to beat.
5. Old Billingsgate
If you are after a BIG City venue, then there is only really one option. Billingsgates, size, location and flexibility make it the No 1 choice for large City parties and awards dinners.
6. The HC
We have run this venue at Christmas for over 6 years now, its elegance and upmarket location make it, in my mind, the best party venue in London for small dinner dances.
7. Café de Paris
See Kensington Roof Gardens. For a London club to still be open after so long, it must be good. For the sheer elegance and history of the venue, Café de Paris will always be in my top ten London venues.
8. The Hurlingham Club
If you are not on the 7 year waiting list for membership, the only way in to this fantastic Country Club is to hold an event. Home of the annual Salon Prive, The Hurlingham Club is perfect for a sophisticated summer soiree.
Vinopolis is another City giant, located a stones through from London Bridge, it has several flexible and unique spaces in which to hold your event. Thrown in the mix that as wine exhibition it houses more alcohol than a brewery, and you’ll get why I like it!
10. Graphic Bar
Purely because it is my favourite West End bar, Graphic Bar makes the list, its décor (re designed every three months by an up and coming artist) and its sublime cocktails, make it my watering hole of choice…
Well there you go, please let me know your own views on this list!
