It is fair to say that we all have different ideas about what makes an event venue ‘cool’ - is it the breathtaking decor that makes for a perfect Instagram backdrop? Perhaps it is the menu of a la mode dishes carefully crafted by a top chef? Or is it just the general atmosphere, buoyed along by friendly staff and a great music soundtrack?

It is also true, that when it comes to London venues, the word ‘cool’ is thrown around a lot, with venues advertising themselves as the latest and greatest place to be seen. So, how can you separate the wheat from the chaff and know which places are actually worthy of your time? Well, not to toot our own horn too much, but we like to think that we have a pretty good eye on what’s cool and trending in London right now.

Whatever your definition of cool is, we hope that when it comes to our list of cool party venues in London, you will confidently agree that they all deserve their place. We know that trend conscious event organisers are always searching for venues that will stand out and leave a lasting impression on guests, which is why we have included a mix of the most unusual, arty, fun and impressive venues that the capital has to offer. At London’s cool party venues, expect the unexpected and prepare yourself for eccentric designs and experiences that promise a party to remember.

Our choice of venues includes spaces that are home to epic live entertainment, gorgeous interiors that are just begging to be photographed and cocktail menus that are on the cutting edge of mixology innovation. Now all you need to do is make sure that your guestlist is just as cool as the venue you have chosen.
