Are you focusing on bars in central London or some other neighbourhood? No matter what you have in mind, we’re sure to have something that fits your requirements. If you’re still not sure what kind of private bar you’d like to hire, have a look at some of our top recommendations:

  • boundary-breaking cocktail bars – as London is famous for its mixology scene, the choice of cocktail bars available for private hire is tremendous. Indulge your guests with delectable daiquiris, mouth-watering margaritas and other special drinks prepared by London’s best bartenders. Cheers!

  • traditional British pubs – because it’s London, after all! We’re here to help you find the best pubs for hire in every district of London. Everybody loves a nice cold pint and delicious pub grub in a cosy setting. Consider yourself a foodie? London has plenty of gastropubs with function rooms for private dining, too.

  • karaoke bars – unleash your inner rock stars and divas! A private karaoke party is always a good idea. Have a round or two at the bar and sing your heart out. And the best part? At a karaoke bar it’s absolutely acceptable to make a fool of yourself. Let your hair down, rock the mic like a boss and enjoy your private party!

  • up-and-coming hipster joints – think places in south and east London, Brixton, Hoxton, Camden Town and Islington. London is full of hip districts that are famous for their great bar scenes. From places for laid-back drinks to best bars in London with a view, there’s something for everyone.

Last but not least, here’s a shortlist of things to remember when hiring a private bar for hire in London:

  • Prepare a list of things you need to do before your event – it makes planning a private bar party much less stressful!

  • Check whether the private bar has all the A/V equipment you’ll need for your event. If it doesn’t, ask if you can bring your own.

  • Ask the bar’s manager about their catering offer. Some venues allow external catering, too.

  • Bars for hire in London vary in size. Book one that’s not too big and not too small for the number of guests you’ve invited.

  • Check all transport links and make sure the location is convenient.

+ the venue was great, not too many people at the start, very accommodating barman and staff upstairs (e.g. when asked to show the football game on the TV) + DJ was playing great music and everyone really enjoyed it + the food (platters) was actually really tasty and there was plenty of it + the manager on duty was really nice and let us bring upstairs as many people as we wanted + great offers on drink from the start

Booked The Ballroom at Upper House
WHOLEHEARTEDLY RECOMMEND! Everything was PHENOMENAL :) We booked the back area for a leaving do for 50 people. The cocktails were great (and good value too!), the food was tasty and the DJ kept us dancing until 3am. The staff was 5*. Emily, the manager was prompt to help us organise it (very easy via email) and Emma and the team were amazing on the day. Anything we asked for was taken care of immediately and with a smile. The door staff was attentive but in a laid-back, polite way. Many guests were gushing about how great of a venue we've chosen. THANK YOU VERY MUCH Dead Dolls House for making this event a truly memorable one for all of our guests and us!

Manager and all staff were very professional and looked after me and my guests the whole night. Made my birthday a night to remember. Thank you
Booked Drawing Room at Pennethorne's Bar at Somerset House
Everything about this experience was great - from negotiating the package of food and drinks to order, to responsive communication, accommodating question before hand, to the actual evening event. The space is stylish, intimate and the staff were lovely and attentive. All our guests were blown away by such a central, culturally interesting location (and we were surprised how reasonable the evening and costs were). Can't recommend the space enough.
