London Nightclubs

We have often attended parties in them or heard about the events that go on inside them, but have you ever thought about holding your corporate event in one? Nightclubs offer a very different spin on a corporate event but are equally perfect at delivering the event due to the extent of AV, lighting and sound already in place. We have put together our pick of London Nightclubs which can be used for many corporate events from conferences to Christmas parties.

First Choice Conference & Events (www.firstchoice-ce.co.uk)'s insight:

Ministry of Sound

A versatile and colourful nightclub situated in SE1 with five interior spaces perfect for all manner of uses. A complete package which comes with award winning sound and lighting system as standard. The venue is available to hire all day and night from Sunday until Thursday, and up until 10pm on Friday and Saturdays. The venue has a maximum capacity of 200 for a banquet, 300 theatre and 1,300 standing.

Fabric

An unusual and inspiring space in the heart of EC1, spread over 5 interconnecting areas. The venue was a former cold meat store for Smithfield Market and can accommodate 100 – 1,500 guests. Today it is primarily a popular nightclub which also makes an interesting event space for corporate events such as conferences, drinks receptions, dinners and many more uses, and is available for hire Monday to Friday (excluding Friday nights). The venue comes with extensive in-house AV facilities including rigging, lighting, sound and projection. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/335096028497757078/

 

Roof Gardens

Built in 1938, The Roof Gardens have been preserved in all their splendour since then. This hidden sanctuary comprises three themed areas - The English Woodland, Spanish andTudorGardens. Great venue for barbeques, cocktail parties and marquees. They also have a large Club House (indoors) accommodating up to 120 people, or 50-60 people for small meetings. The nearest tube is High Street Kensington.

 A great rooftop location with a Wig Wam situated on the roof until March. Inside you’ll experience an atmosphere of Scandinavian settlement meets Norwegian tribe; a cosy den of deer hide covered seating, candlelit lanterns, colourful indigenous wall hangings and of course, the roaring flames of the central open grill cooking a daily rotating menu of delicious polar region inspired cuisine. Then mid-April it transforms into a summer rooftop venue which can be hired out exclusively http://www.pinterest.com/firstchoicece/unique-venues/
