Bang in the middle of the West End, next door to BAFTA, is Purple Door at Piccadilly, a subterranean venue that sprawls beneath eight properties. A blank canvas that can be easily lit and themed,
its interior benefits from original steel beams and brickwork. The diminutive but dramatic ground-floor entrance leads guests down a lit glass staircase, through to the main space. There’s 5,683sq
ft to play with and raised areas work well as stages or VIP zones. The venue comes with a separate kitchen and a series of breakout rooms that can be used for multi-stage events or as further VIP
rooms. With capacity for 600 standing guests, it suits large-scale cocktail receptions, fashion shows and product launches.
