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.

Great atmosphere and friendliness of staff. The space is as advertised. We had a great time.

Once the music starts its hard to talk indoors.

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).


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 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.

The venue is available until 12am Monday - Thursday and until 1am Friday and Saturday.
