London has always been a hub for creative types. After all, the big smoke is packed full of art studios, museums, galleries, music venues, theatres, book and comic shops, tattoo parlours… the list goes on! As a result of this, there are tons of truly unique venues scattered across the city. And what better way to enjoy a venue than to throw an event there?
We’ve searched high and low around the capital to find the most unique and unusual event and party venues. But, rather than adding everything we find, this list has been distilled and refined to only include the best of the best. From grandeur museums to restaurants hundreds of feet above the city, and from nightclubs in the West End to neon-covered crazy golf courses, this list has it all.
The type of event is up to you, as these venues are pretty versatile. Whether you’re throwing a blowout birthday, hosting a quiet dinner or organising an office party, we’re sure you’ll find something you like below. There are even spaces to suit those looking to organise a conference. Trust us and you’ll be surprised at just how chic a corporate bash can be. If you’re going seriously big, however, it’s worth checking out our guide to the best big venues in London (and by big, we mean 1000+ capacity).
On the off chance the sun appears (we remain optimistic), you might want to peruse our guide to the best summer party venues or the best London venues with outside space.
Got your own sense of style? Then maybe a blank canvas venue is right for you, as they will give you the creative space you need to let your inner artist shine. If you’d prefer cool to quirky, we’ve also curated a list of the coolest party venues in London.
