About this space

Our inside Garden Arch on the upper floor is a light airy space with a summer garden feel and is decorated with flowers and fake grass.

It's a great space for your next celebration and is hugely popular for engagement and birthday parties, or a sit-down meal on weekdays, and leads directly outside to our private outside space adding an extension to your company summer party.

On weekends have a DJ on from 9pm on Fridays and Saturdays playing a mix of commercial R&B, Pop, House and Club Classics (Kisstory vibe).

The space is also ideal for company meetings, presentations and away-days and if booked for this comes with projector, screen and flip charts if required.

Our garden arch seats 20 for dinner parties or up to 50 for a standing reception. Dimensions: 4m x 7.5m.

The location, the staff, the space all great!

The DJ was due at 10pm , but didnt show... which was actually very disappointing because it was a party without music (other than streamed music too quiet to get people dancing).

Really easy to organise and communication was great. The people I was speaking to were really nice and helpful. Venue was a great atmosphere!

There were some particularly rude members of staff at the venue which was a shame as other than that it was a great night. The bouncers were really unnecessary and rude, with condescending comments speaking to members of the party like school children.

- Steve (Event manager) was friendly, timely and informative in all of his responses which made planning the event for a large group so much easier for me. - We were assigned two teams member on the day to look after us and they were wonderful, helpful and responsive to all our needs - The team were so accommodating - even to all the last minute changes, unexpected delays/orders. It was clear they wanted to make our time there as pleasant as possible! - The venue was lovely and the area we were given was spacious - Reasonable prices for food and drink

- Nothing but if there would be a suggestion to the team then I think it'd the food could have been better - it was good but nothing that blew me away.

Great service and food, great location and spacious place, We had a really great time, thanks to Steve and the team.


The location is a twin railway arch venue set over 2 floors and is located next to Blackfriars Bridge on the south side of the river in the shadow of Sea Containers and the OXO Tower (nearest stations are Southwark or Blackfriars).

Venue is industrial in style with exposed brickwork, a reclaimed upper wooden floor and polished concrete lower floor with chesterfield sofas, cosy booth seating in bright colours and unapologetic artwork to get your guests talking.

Space is available for booking from 6 to 300 guests. There is a bar and toilets on each floor and full catering options available.

We have a separate Private Dining and Meeting Room that can accommodate 20 people seated or 30 people for a standing drinks reception.

The venue is available until 12am Monday - Thursday and until 1.30am Friday and Saturday.
