Here are some of the kinds of cocktail party venues you can find in London:
Cocktail Parties are amazing opportunities to socialise with friends, family and associates. Private rooms ensure that your party will get full, hands-on service over the course of the night. These rooms will often come with dedicated bartenders to mix loads of creative cocktails. Private rooms are ideal for larger parties such as big birthday parties, cocktail hours for weddings, and corporate networking events. London has tons of high-class bars to choose from, so you are bound to find a room that is perfect for your party.
Semi-private spaces have all of the perks of a private room with the added benefit of experiencing nightlife alongside other people who are out for the night. This is a great way to celebrate smaller parties, where you get to enjoy a fun cocktail party, without the pressure of a large private space When you think of a semi-private room, think of an 18th birthday party or hen or stag party. Your guests will be able to chill with their cocktails and each other and enjoy a beautiful night out.
What’s better than sun and cocktails? London has tons of beautiful outdoor cocktail party venues to celebrate the summer weather and the joyous company of the people close to you. If you are looking for somewhere a little more elevated, London also has loads of rooftop cocktail party spaces for you to enjoy. This is a perfect way to make your party stand out from the crowd and give you and your guests plenty of photo opportunities that are tailor made for Instagram.

Well, this largely depends on the kind of party you are looking to have. If you are hosting a cocktail hour before a wedding session, you are going to include the same amount of people you invited to your wedding. In most other circumstances, you may choose to keep your cocktail party on the smaller side, because many of the spaces are intimate-sized more often than not. We would recommend around 15-25 people for a decently sized cocktail party.
Hors d'oeuvres are standard cocktail party foods. These are the best for your guests to try small bites over the course of the night and also pair well with having a few cocktails. Most venues that provide appetisers will have about 10-12 trays being passed around the party to your guests.
Cocktail parties are supposed to be nice events. On your invitations be sure to include a semi-formal or casual, but nice, dress code. Everyone should be dressed in nice clothes that will help set the mood and contribute to the party’s elegant atmosphere. But of course, everything goes with a Martini.

I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
