    Venue Specialist Tip No. 1: Hotels Make Glamorous Settings For Engagement Parties

    If you’re not too bothered about having an exclusive venue, and you’d rather have a private area, hotels are a great place to start. Not only do they have high service standards, but professionals style their interiors, so you don’t need to bring many decorations. For example, L’oscar in Holborn is a colourful work of art. The former church is now a stunning boutique hotel, and its circular Baptist chapel creates an unforgettable backdrop for dancing and entertainment. 

    Nearby, in Bloomsbury, the Kimpton Fitzroy London is a stunning engagement party venue. This celebrated hotel is the perfect mix of old and new. In its centre sits the remarkable Palm court, a chic reception space dotted with plants, plush sofas, and two small courtyard spaces. Fitz’s Bar is another gorgeous bar area in the hotel, fitted with a giant disco ball and a fully stocked bar.

    Venue Specialist Tip No. 2: Wine Bars and Restaurants Are A Crowd Pleaser

They are built for entertaining and their teams have worked hard to create an inviting ambience. From the soft lighting to the vibrant music, your guests will feel instantly welcomed and ready to celebrate.

    SUSHISAMBA and Duck & Waffle are top-rated restaurants in East London.

    Venue Specialist Tip No. 3: Private Members’ Clubs Add A Touch Of Exclusivity

    For a modern, exclusive, and stylish atmosphere, London’s private members’ club scene is great to tap into for engagement parties. The great thing is, you don’t necessarily have to be a member to book an event space. Places like The Ned are open for all to enjoy in the communal areas, including the event suite on the sixth floor. Up here, you can host your party in the historic Tapestry Room, the Saloon, or out on the sunny terrace overlooking St Paul’s Cathedral. 

    Another fantastic private members’ club venue is the Century Club in Soho. Named after its famous 100 steps that lead up to its world-class event spaces; you can party all night on the roof terrace or book an intimate dinner in The Piano Bar. With various other rooms to discover, you’re sure to be charmed by this venue’s unique offering. Check out the Century Club’s venue profile for more information.
