Booked Exclusive Venue Hire at Martinez Cocktail Lounge
We had a wonderful time celebrating a birthday at Martinez. The venue manager, Dovile, was transparent and efficient in her communications before the event. She was able to answer all of our queries and put us at ease before the event. On the night, the team at the venue were welcoming and highly professional, and made sure everything went as well as we could’ve expected. Several guests commented on how nice the venue is, so hopefully they’ll be booking soon too! Overall, I cannot recommend the venue and team highly enough.

Booked The Clubhouse at the Victoria at The Clubhouse at The Vic
I hired the clubroom for my 30th birthday and I was very happy with my choice of venue! It’s a hidden gem in Tottenham and a good location for my family/friends! Sarah and the team were very attentive and helpful in the weeks and days leading up to the party and made sure the space was how I needed it! The bar staff were super helpful and made sure we had all the right drinks and music etc. The space was tidy, clean and even had candles - outside coverings, heaters and some activities to keep kids entertained! I would definitely recommend booking this space :)

Booked Private Dining Room at Brasserie Blanc Chancery Lane
Absolutely fantastic! I held a murder mystery party here and couldn’t have asked for a better venue. The room was clean and spacious with great ambiance. The service was impeccable, working around our murder street storyline completely and they perfectly kept track of everyone’s individual tabs despite us moving seat every course. The food was also fantastic with great options. The communication to the venue was also brilliant with them being flexible around any changes I had. Highly recommend!

Booked The Bar at JOAN
Tansie was fantastic from day 1, and was so warm and accommodating. And on the day itself, she was there, making sure we were happy. Thank you, Tansie! We felt that the staff in general, were very warm and keen for us to have the evening we wanted. A great vibe, delicious food, and very warm service! Furthermore, Gabriel, despite not knowing the entire guest list, spotted a couple of chaps who had not been invited, and straightaway notified me. I was very impressed with how vigilant he was. He had them leave without incident. Very reassuring to have staff being that alert!! Thanks, Gabriel!

Booked Upper Arch at SAMA Bankside
This place was fantastic! The hospitality shown by staff was great and they put up with us ;). Would definitely use again! Had fantastic service, fantastic games for us to play, for example they set up a beer pong table. Music was great and organising it was made so easy due to Steve and Humphrey who were amazing. No negative feedback at all and I hope they enjoyed having us and we weren't too much of a nightmare.

Booked Unique Baby Shower at Albert's at Beaufort House
The atmosphere was infectious, with bubbly staff that made my whole experience there fun and light. It was my bestfriend's baby shower and she had a great time. Our hostess Mariam was a delight and we will all be definitely returning. The communication between Beaufort House and I were prompt and helpful, even with last minute changes they still accommodated us beautifully and for that I am thankful. Would recommend this place anytime for events or just to have a nice drink and a great meal.

Venue location. Hospitality. Communication with Eli. Venue lay-out and furniture. Value for money. Asssistance with preparation. Warm, intimate, tidy interior. Easy access, easy to lock up. Simple, clear health and safety instructions given. Over all- beautifully kept boat, in the prime location. Well suited for our baby shower.
Leyda Y.
Booked Meston Suite at One Whitehall Place
I had my baby shower at the Terrace room in August 2017. My guests left my event very happy and impressed so I was very pleased. Positives: The beautiful location and the view, the food was delicious, and the waiters (not the bar staff) were very helpful on the day of my event. I will celebrate another event there but only with a different management.
