Perched on the roof of No 1 Poultry, Coq d’Argent is best known for its panoramas, which take in landmarks such as St Paul’s Cathedral, Monument and the Bank of England. Guests step out of the lift into the venue’s standout space: the rooftop garden designed by Arabella Lennox-Boyd. The ultimate backdrop for a Champagne reception when the sun is shining, heating and a cover ensure that even when it’s not, your guests will stay warm and dry. Hire the bar terrace for wedding receptions for up to 100 guests, or its sleek interior for wedding breakfasts (150 seated guests or 300 standing). Exclusive hire, including use of the terrace and gardens, costs £3,000 +VAT on the weekends, plus a minimum spend.
