Booked The Trunk at Artworks Elephant
The space was as advertised and had every facility we had requested; the Artworks space is very cool and the room was perfect. Lazaros could not have been more helpful and accommodating.
Joe Choukair
Booked The Space at Big Chill Kings Cross
Everything was awesome at Big Chill House, the event went really well with Anita and Alice's great help on the day. Everyone enjoyed themselves and the team were there if we needed anything, they checked in with us throughout the night on food/drinks and if we needed anything, we all had such a top night, thanks Big Chill House team!
Hazel Pritchard
Booked Boardroom at The Archivist's Gallery
Absolutely gorgeous venue, amazing service and fabulous food! Only positive feedback for this venue! If you’re looking for somewhere quirky, and that is an intimate venue, this is the one!
Lucy Armstrong
Booked Marthas Bar at The Washington
Great venue for a 20s themed party, barely needed any additional decoration as it looked great already. Price very good (£500 minimum spend reached easily) for what you got, and the bookcase entrance unique!
