The 17th UK venue for etc.venues (the group also boasts a location in New York), finds its home just a stone’s throw away from Chancery Lane, Farringdon and Holborn tube stations. Stretching itself across 28,000 sq ft of space, etc.venues Chancery Lane pairs contemporary workspaces with a modern, laid-back feel.
The venue features 28 purpose-built rooms and spacious collaborative areas, all of which are available to hire for corporate training, networking and the like. Each of the 28 rooms comes with built in AV equipment, while a handy co-working lounge offers drinks and snacks to graze on all day long made by a team of on-site chefs.
The aim behind etc.venues Chancery Lane was to create an event space that would help encourage professionals to interact and get creative in a setting that’s more stimulating and inclusive than typical corporate training venues. It’s safe to say they’ve achieved this, largely thanks to the venue’s clever design elements.
The eclectic furniture lends itself to a variety of styles of working or networking, with co-working pods, tree trunk stools, factory workshop benches and comfy sofas next to coffee tables all on hand to help get your brain working. The venue’s aesthetics also add to the atmosphere – 3D artwork should get the creative juices flowing, while plant displays will help you to calm down if you need to take a breather. Of course, dry wipe white boards are on hand to jot down those winning ideas when inspiration strikes.
Other helpful amenities include fully functioning AC and charging points where you can top up your phone or laptop battery. It’s not all about business though, as there are also plenty of opportunities for delegates to push the pause button and relax for a moment – think a lively game of table football, or an escape from office stress via a few rounds on a Xbox.
