Dinner and Dance Venues Hire Guide

Organising a dinner dance is a big undertaking, so plan early and with your purpose in mind. It makes sense to book your dinner and dance venue as soon as possible because the most popular spaces sell out up to one year in advance. It’s also a good idea to have several workable dates in mind when you inquire about a venue.

Add a little glamour to your event by holding your dinner dance somewhere special, like in a hotel ballroom or elegant banqueting suite, or choose a unique space that'll be sure to impress your guests, like a garden, museum or historic home. Whether you're hosting a corporate event, fundraising for your favourite charity or celebrating a grand occasion, Tagvenue is here to help you find the perfect London venue for your dinner and dance.

Dinner and Dance Tips and Tricks:

Choose a venue in a convenient location (do you need a space in central London or would something further afield work better?)

  • Decide whether you’d like a themed event (masquerade, the Oscars, Las Vegas, black and white, etc.)

  • Think about what style of venue would best suit (do you need an elegant hotel for a New Year’s ball or a winter-wonderland themed space for a charity fundraiser at Christmas?)

  • Consider whether to provide a dress code (black tie, formal, fancy dress, etc.)

  • Carefully plan a schedule for the evening (do you need to set aside time for an auction, speeches or presentations, or a performance?)

Your Dinner and Dance Event: Ideas for themes and how to implement them in your venue

Creating a theme for your dinner and dance event transforms a standard gathering into an extraordinary experience, offering attendees a memorable night filled with ambience, excitement, and joy. Whether you're exploring dinner and dance venues in Mayfair, historical settings in Greenwich, or trendy spaces in Shoreditch, London's eclectic mix caters to every theme imaginable.

Vintage Glamour in the Heart of Mayfair

Mayfair has venues that are perfect for a vintage glamour theme. Imagine your guests entering an ancient era, with gentlemen in tails and ladies in silk gowns. Implement this theme by choosing a venue with period features, such as ornate ceilings and crystal chandeliers, and complement it with a big band jazz ensemble to set the mood. Enhance the dining experience with a menu that reflects the sophistication of earlier eras—think oysters, champagne, and classic French dishes.

A Night at the Movies in Leicester Square

For film enthusiasts, a ‘Night at the Movies’ theme can make your dinner and dance event stand out. Leicester Square offers venues that can be transformed into famous movie sets. Decorate your space with Hollywood-style props, red carpets, and life-size cutouts of iconic film characters. Projectors can display classic movie clips silently on the walls as a background. Famous movie scenes can even inspire the catering—imagine serving ratatouille from the namesake film or spaghetti with meatballs from ‘Lady and the Tramp’.

Carnival Extravaganza in Notting Hill

Embrace the vibrant spirit of the Notting Hill Carnival by hosting a Carnival Extravaganza-themed dinner and dance. Opt for venues with spacious outdoor areas or large halls that can be brightly decorated with feathers, sequins, and masks. Incorporate live Samba bands and dancers to entertain the guests and invite them to dance. The menu should be a feast of Caribbean flavours—jerk chicken, plantains, and rum punch—to complete the immersive experience.

Secret Garden Party in Kensington

Kensington is the perfect setting for a secret garden party theme. Choose a venue with a beautiful garden or a space that can be transformed with lush greenery, floral arrangements, and twinkling fairy lights. This theme offers a magical escape into nature, inviting guests to dine and dance under the stars. The menu can focus on fresh, botanical-inspired cocktails and farm-to-table dishes that celebrate the best of the season.

Implementing Your Theme

No matter the theme, the success of your dinner and dance event in London hinges on attention to detail. Custom invitations, themed decor, tailored menus, and entertainment all contribute to the atmosphere. When selecting your venue, consider the space's ability to accommodate your theme, on-site catering and A/V equipment availability, and the venue's proximity to London landmarks or public transport.

Remember, the goal is to create an immersive experience that captivates your attendees from the moment they arrive. By creating an event with a theme, you're not just offering dancing and dinner but a gateway to an unforgettable night in one of the world's most dynamic cities.

Layout and Arrangement Tips for Both Dinner and Dance Areas

  1. Flexibility in Table Arrangements: Opt for venues that offer adaptable table setups to accommodate small and large gatherings. Round tables promote conversation at social events, while long tables fit corporate or wedding settings.
  2. Sophisticated Dinner Settings: Seek dining spaces in affluent areas like Mayfair, where elegance and customisation options abound. These venues should provide advanced lighting and sound systems to tailor the ambience to your theme.
  3. Spacious Dance Floors: Choose dinner and dance venues with ample, unobstructed dance areas equipped with top-notch sound systems and adaptable lighting to create an inviting atmosphere for dancing.
  4. Seamless Transition Between Areas: Ensure the venue supports an effortless flow from dining to dancing, preferably with adjacent spaces or multiple areas for exclusive hire, to transition the mood from formal dining to relaxed dancing smoothly.
  5. Vibrant Location Choices: To keep your guests entertained, consider venues in lively neighbourhoods such as Soho, known for their dynamic nightlife and built-in dance floors.
  6. Proximity to Local Landmarks: Venues near iconic landmarks or scenic views, like those along the Thames, add a memorable setting to your event, enhancing the overall experience for your guests.
  7. Cultural and Historical Significance: Incorporating London's rich cultural tapestry and historic locations into your venue can offer a unique and engaging experience.

By focusing on these detailed and practical aspects when choosing dinner and dance venues in London, you ensure a successful event and an engaging and memorable experience for your guests.

FAQs about Dinner and Dance Venues in London

How much does it cost to hire a dinner and dance venue in London?

The cost of hiring a dinner and dance venue in London will depend on the number of participants, the duration of the event, and the day and the time of the event. Usually, you can expect per person package prices starting at as low as £24 at the most affordable dinner and dance venues in the city. Per hour pricing can range between £30 to £150. The minimum spend hire starts at £250. (All data from Tagvenue.)

Which areas of London are best for hiring a dinner and dance party?

You can find great dinner and dance venues all over London, but if you’re looking for the best nightlife experience for your event, then Soho is the place to go. This area is also centrally located, so it will also be easy to reach via public transportation. With plenty of bars and restaurants, Battersea is also a great option for events. For a more worldwide experience, Islington is the best, as it features many restaurants serving cuisines from all over the world. Consider hiring a venue in the City of London if you’re organising a corporate dance and dinner. Head over to Kensington if you’re looking for something more upscale.

How can I make dinner and dance events even more fun?

One of the unbeatable ways to ensure your event is fun is by adding something extra to it. For example, you can incorporate some simple games that can be played either over the dinner table or on the dance floor. A trivia game can be a lot of fun if you provide the promise of a prize for the winner. Another thing you can do is establish a theme for your event, such as superheroes or Hollywood movies. Then tell the guests that they must dress up according to the theme. You may also want to organise a competition to decide who did it the best! Another fool-proof idea is to set up a photo booth with some fun props to commemorate the night.

Booked The Library at The Chesterfield Mayfair
The venue was gorgeous, Suzie was so helpful and the food was wonderful. It was difficult with the 15 people limit but they provided a camera and big TV so we could zoom other people. I had an amazing wedding and would recommend the Chesterfield to anyone looking to get married.
