A roundup of three top meeting spaces, fresh from a revamp


61LIF Cha Chaan Teng Alumni Suite

Chinese fusion restaurant Cha Chaan Teng’s new conferencing suite for up to 150 guests is a bright, contemporary venue – a counterpoint to the restaurant’s ‘1950s Pan Am’ look upstairs. It splits into two spaces: the Alumni Suite takes up to 90, and 30 can fit in the Boardroom. Food from the restaurant can be served in the spaces.
Glaziers Hall

Glaziers Hall Refurbished

This Grade II-listed gem has reopened with a contemporary look and a third more floorspace than before – including two new riverside rooms and an extra basement level. But rest easy, the building’s period features are intact. There’s even a wine cellar in that basement, with an original Yorkstone floor and restored Georgian brick arches. 

The Mermaid

The Mermaid London Queenhithe

The Thamesside venue has reopened its Upper River Room following a £750,000 refurbishment. The project saw ceilings raised, pillars removed and a new floor added, giving up to 500 guests better views across the river. The Blackfriars venue is home to eight meeting and event spaces, including a 600-seat auditorium.
