Tips and tricks for orchestrating an outstanding corporate event:

  • Send your invitations at least eight weeks before the big day. Your guests should be given enough lead time to adjust their schedules if necessary. Don't forget to send a reminder one week before the event. It is also a good idea to confirm your guests' attendance at least three days in advance of any event.
  • Create a preliminary budget to help determine how much to spend on venue hire, food and entertainment. You should also consider any extra expenses, such as live music or decorations. It is also a good idea to include a contingency budget in case the cost of your event exceeds your original expectations.
  • Create a theme for the party. Setting the tone and creating a harmonic look is a great way to create a sense of unity among your guests. It also makes it easier to pick out decorations that match your theme. You can create a theme for the party based on any number of elements, including the decade, season, movies, or even fictional characters.
  • Consider the type of food that would be most appropriate for a given occasion. The main consideration here is whether you want your guests to have a sit down meal or prefer that they eat from a buffet. If you're planning on serving full meals, then it's essential to ensure that there are enough tables and chairs for everyone. If you're planning on serving finger food, then it's important that there are enough plates and napkins available so that everyone can easily pick up food and eat without making a mess.
  • Organise fantastic entertainment. DJs are always a popular choice for corporate events because they usually play music that everyone knows how to dance to or sing along with — and this means that no one will feel left out! You can also book comedians and magicians if you want people laughing throughout the night. Finally, don't forget about photo booths! Fun little additions like these can really spruce up any event. Keep in mind that the more unique and engaging the entertainment is, the more likely people will be talking about it after the festivities are over!
  • Don't forget to include branded cocktails or company swag. Incorporating custom cocktails into your event is a great way to impress your guests with thoughtful details and make them remember your company for years to come. If you don't have time to create a custom drink recipe, consider ordering branded drinkware. It could be as simple as a custom-designed glass that matches the colour scheme of your event. 
  • Make sure you have a contingency plan in case of an outdoor event, like a corporate picnic or BBQ. The weather is unpredictable, and if it starts to rain on your outdoor event, you need to have a plan to ensure that the fun continues. You don't want your guests to get drenched while they're enjoying themselves!
  • Write a checklist of everything you need to do. This will help you stay organised and make sure that nothing is forgotten. You can also use it to write down any last-minute details that come up and get crossed off as they are completed.

Choosing a venue that ties in with your theme makes it easier to save on decorations, food and entertainment. Do you need a winter wonderland-themed venue for a corporate Christmas party, a chic cocktail bar for after-work entertaining or a designer space for a client meet-and-greet? If you're having trouble nailing down the perfect theme, here are some ideas to help you get the juices flowing:

  • The 1920s Speakeasy. Art Deco and Gatsby-style glamour with a hint of prohibition era flair. It's classic for a reason! You can't go wrong with this theme — it screams elegance and sophistication. Plus, it's easy to plan around because everyone knows what to wear. This is a great option if you're hosting an event at a hotel, ballroom or another venue which provides everything from tables and chairs to crockery and linens.
  • Tropical Paradise Party. A seaside escape complete with surfboards, palm trees, tiki torches, pina coladas and lots of sand on the floor (or at least the option to have it there). The tropical party theme is ideal for events held outdoors in warm weather months or any time you want an atmosphere reminiscent of summertime fun!
  • Hollywood Glamour Night. Take your guests back in time with old-fashioned movie theatre snacks like popcorn boxes, candy bars and more! You can hold this event at the theatre, or just hire a venue that has a retro feel like an old-fashioned diner or ice cream parlour. If you want to make it a full-blown party, you can also decorate the venue with vintage cameras and other nostalgic props.
  • Game Night Party. This is a great theme for co-workers looking to get away from their cubicles and have some fun! Fill a pub's function room with board games or card tables and set up video game consoles. Hang up classic movie posters, have a beer tap with "Game Night" on it and have fun!

Corporate Party Venues in London FAQ

How much does it cost to hire a corporate party venue in London?

The cost to hire a corporate party venue in London depends on the location, capacity and other factors. Lounge bars and restaurants hosting between 50 and 200 people will generally cost between £150 and £1,000 per session.

If you are on a tight budget, you can opt for a venue that is operating on minimum spend can be as little as £50-£100. This is an ideal option if you are short on funds. (All data from Tagvenue.)

Which areas of London are best for hosting a corporate party?

The City and Canary Wharf are home to some of the world’s most iconic buildings and landmarks – including the Gherkin and Tower 42. These are ideal locations if you’re looking for a modern and stylish venue to host your event.

If you’re looking for a traditional venue, then why not consider hosting your event in the heart of The West End? This area is home to some incredible theatres and entertainment industry – such as Her Majesty’s Theatre and The London Palladium,  an ideal location if you want to throw a party that will impress guests with its history.

Holborn is perfect if you want something slightly more relaxed than the hustle and bustle of central London. There are plenty of restaurants with great food options and bars with live music or DJs playing all night long.

What kind of venues can I hire for a corporate party in London?.

There are many different options available when it comes to hiring a corporate party venue in London, from private dining rooms with catering and entertainment packages to cocktail bars with a pool table, darts and more. The best way to narrow down your search is by considering the type of event you’re planning. If you’re planning a flamboyant party, you might want to choose a venue that offers entertainment options like karaoke or live music. If you’re looking for a more formal event, then consider booking an art gallery or museum and focus on top-notch catering services. Once you’ve decided, it will be much easier to start searching through venues and find the one that’s right for your event.

What kind of food can I serve at a corporate party?

You can choose from a variety of dining options, including finger food, buffet style meals and even sit down meals with waiters and waitresses. If you want to go down the finger food route, consider whether you want to serve bite-sized finger food or larger portions. The latter is often more suited to a drinks reception or buffet style event. For sit down meals, your options are really only limited by your imagination! Don't forget to consider dietary requirements, especially for those with allergies. If you know that there will be vegetarians or vegans, it's important to make sure you provide a suitable alternative. If you're not sure whether your guests have any special dietary requirements, it's worth checking before the event. When choosing drinks, consider how long people will be there for and what kind of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks would appeal most to your guests.

Ella Higgs
Booked ICE BAR London at ICEBAR London
The venue was set up perfectly and everything from arrival, to the Ice Bar experience and the 3 course meal were exceptional! The night was handled with professionalism and perfection. A pop up bar was built in the moose room to allow privacy for the event. All attendees were impressed with the venue and the service. The food and drinks were fantastic and I could have asked for anything more from the night.

Jennifer
Booked Bar Terrace at Coq D'Argent
The organisations of the event was brilliant, the staff contacted me a couple of weeks before the event to go over my pre-order and ensure everything was in order. Juan, who took care of our table, was very attentive and even allowed us to return some of the bottles that went unused/weren't opened. Beautiful venue, lovely staff and overall excellent experience.

Booked The Bedouin Tent & Garden at St Ethelburga's Centre
The location of the venue was great and it was ideal for the size of the party we were hosting. Due to the weather we didn't use the tent but everyone appreciated how unique the location was.

Booked The Lounge at Six Storeys on Soho
I couldn't recommend Six Storeys enough. The contact I worked with to organise the event for a team of 30 was responsive, helpful and knowledgeable. On the night of the event, everything ran perfectly according to plan and the service on the evening was spot on. The food was absolutely delicious, and wine/ beer selection fantastic. The Lounge is a lovely space, and Six Storeys is in a great and central location.
