Islington Venues Hire Guide

Located on the northern edge of central London, Islington is a charming and stylish area and this can definitely be seen in its venues! A hub for food places, Upper Street is renowned for its abundance of bars and restaurants, many of which are available for hire. The street has the added bonus of being easily reachable, with Angel underground station at the southern end of the street and Highbury and Islington stations at the northern end. Of course, the choice doesn't end at Upper Street, with tonnes of other notable venues throughout the district.

No Islington eatery or watering hole could be labelled as ‘boring’ but, if you’re looking for something different, there are also alternative venues to choose from, including gallery spaces and studios. Whatever you’re after, all of Islington’s venues for hire reflect the area’s fashionable and eclectic atmosphere and offer a distinct ambience like nowhere else.

Islington has plenty of fun to offer. With Emirates Stadium a stone’s throw away, great shopping potential along the carless shopping street, Camden Passage, and numerous museums and theatres, there’s plenty for guests to explore before or after your event. The area also boasts convenient transport links. It is served not only by the Angel and Highbury and Islington stations but also by Essex Road train station, with the major train stations of Kings Cross and St Pancras a three-minute tube ride away.

Some of Islington’s most sought-after locations include, but are not limited to:

  • Angel – One of the most popular areas in Islington, Angel offers a huge dose of culture and a great atmosphere. Upper Street, the main road running through Angel, is a busy hub and home to an eclectic mix of quirky, intimate bars venues and creative, airy meeting rooms, as the area is one of London’s fastest growing business improvement districts.
  • Kings Cross – Being home to the eponymous train station and with Saint Pancras station just a stone’s throw away, holding an event in the Kings Cross area may be a great choice if your guests are coming from outside the city. The area boasts a huge choice of conference venues and formal reception spaces, with some great bars thrown in for good measure. Be sure to check out corporate venues and restaurants overlooking the Regents Canal, too.
  • Farringdon – This is a really charming area that’s sure to delight guests! Known as a great spot for after-work drinks, Farringdon doesn’t disappoint when it comes to cocktail bars and clubs, but your options don’t end there! There’s a whole variety of impressive halls and meeting spaces. The dining offer is also quite unique – the area is famous for the Smithfield meat market, a supplier for many of Farringdon’s restaurants.

Booked Basement Bar at Coin Laundry
We had such a fantastic time celebrating a 30th birthday with around 30 friends. Robbie was extremely responsive when we were planning and his help answering questions was very appreciated. The space was beautifully set up upon our arrival and the staff (led by Sonny) couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. Everyone commented on how great the venue was and said that the food was delicious. Thank you so much for helping us to organise a very memorable evening!

Booked The BSMT at The Ladybird Bar
The owner is THE BEST! We had an amazing time for our 30th bday party!!! The venue was cool, we had some requirements and Habib was very helpful in replying to us fast and ensure there would be no problem in terms of “logistics”. I strongly suggest to have your party here, it’s a convenient location, the basement is simple but super cool, the vibes are so right and again the staff is great!

Booked The Aviary at Upper House
Great central location for a private party. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, making it very easy to book. They alsoprovided us with bespoke cocktail menus which was a lovely touch. The space itself is great and customizable. Above all, they allow external catering, which was a massive help for us.
Booked The Aviary at Upper House
Emily was really helpful during planning, and everything was prepared as discussed before. The bartender we had dedicated to the room was a star. She was super helpful and readily available to take orders. The food was amazing, we mostly enjoyed the chicken and waffles.
