From chandelier speckled ballrooms to underground wine bars, there are all kinds of exciting and unusual function spaces in London to host a memorable corporate event. Some of our most popular food-focused spaces include Devonshire Terrace by Drake & Morgan, Humble Grape Fleet Street and The Anthologist, for their delicious menus and atmospheric interiors.
Alternatively, you might want to wow your guests with a rooftop event space looking out over the glowing London skyline. Our favourites include The Gherkin, The Courthouse Hotel Shoreditch and The Ned. With a bird’s eye view of some of London’s most famous architectural icons, your corporate guests will be impressed by the setting as they enjoy custom cocktails and canapés.
You can also never go wrong with a traditional hotel function room, steeped in heritage and sophistication. Some of the most sought after settings can be found at the Mandarin Oriental, Claridge’s, The In & Out and the Haymarket Hotel. Their teams know how to host a seamless business event, that will make you want to book in ahead of time for the following year.
Venue Specialist Tip No. 1: Find a Venue With An Inviting Atmosphere
Your colleagues and clients need to feel welcomed from the moment they arrive, especially if they are coming to the event alone. Picking a venue with a warm ambience will make guests feel instantly at ease and ready to strike up new conversations.
In Holborn, The Kimpton Fitzroy’s Palm Court has an effortlessly social vibe, or St Bart’s Brewery in Farringdon has a lively pub feel where all of your guests can gather near the bar. If you’re looking for a venue that’s an instant crowd-pleaser, speak with a member of VenueCrew’s London Venue Specialists to discover a space with an unmissable atmosphere.
Venue Specialist Tip No. 2: Pick Out a Convenient Location
The great thing about hosting your corporate event in London is that all areas of the capital are easily accessible by public transport. For example, areas such as Westminster, the City of London or Mayfair have convenient underground tube links and bus routes.
In the eastern boroughs of Shoreditch and Hackney, there are overground lines, or southern suburbs like Wandsworth and Richmond can be accessed via national rail services. Wherever you’d like to host your company occasion, our London Venue Specialists will make things easy.
Venue Specialist Tip No. 3: Consider Catering
Getting the catering right is essential, as no one wants to leave your corporate party feeling hungry and unsatisfied. A lot of London event venues can provide a selection of in-house menus that include seated banquets through to delicious buffets and standing canapés.
Other venues might offer a dry-hire arrangement, where you can choose your caterer. This gives you more flexibility with the cuisine and the style of food and drinks. Chat to our VenueCrew team to help you consider your options or to get a list of appropriate caterers.
Venue Specialist Tip No. 4: Interactive Activities Will Make Your Event Stand Out
There’s no harm in thinking outside the box when it comes to planning your next business event, as an interactive element could end up being the most memorable part about it. For example, you could organise a cocktail masterclass in the chic bar at South Place Hotel, a flower arranging workshop in the courtyard at Dartmouth House, or you could hire poker tables for a casino-inspired party at the Grand Connaught Rooms.
Venue Specialist Tip No. 5: Contact VenueCrew for Help (it’s free!)
Venue finding is one of the initial pressures of event planning, especially when you have a strict budget and time deadline.

Frequently Asked Questions
Corporate event spaces can range a lot depending on the time of the year, the day of the week, as well as the style of venue. For example, a luxury 5-star hotel function room will cost more than a partially exclusive bar or restaurant. Affordable corporate venues can start at £100 per head or a £10,000 minimum spend, and they go up from there.
If you’re planning for your party to end late in the evening, it’s useful to share the local accommodation options with your guests.
