Troxy has all the elements you need for a fantastic dinner party venue: its great east London location makes it perfect for those who live or work close to the City or Canary Wharf. Its set-up with a stage makes it easy to have dinner entertainment and every level of this split level venue has a bar to ensure the drinks stay flowing all evening.
Hiring out the Grand Hall can allow you to seat a massive 1016 people: making it perfect for a banquet after a large conference or if you are organising a large event with a big guest list. If your guest list is smaller, smaller rooms inside Troxy such as The White Room are also available to hire.
Want your guests to dine like kings and queens? Then why not invite them to a banquet where the famous kings and queens of the past used to throw their own lavish dinners and banquets? Banqueting House is the last remaining part of the famous Palace of Whitehall and was the favourite of Tudor Kings and Queens until it burned to the ground in the 17th century.
Banqueting House was saved, and it is now one of the most grandiose banqueting halls in London. If you’re going to throw a lavish, over-the-top banquet, then this is the right venue for you.
If you’re looking for something a little cooler and more contemporary, then Camden’s Roundhouse is certainly an appealing choice. Roundhouse has hosted some of the best musicians within its hallowed halls, but it is also frequently used as a dining venue as well.
Roundhouse is perfect if you want to add an element of hipster cool to the atmosphere of your dinner party, and make the entire event feel less rigid and formal. With plenty of space options, you can host up to 1,100 guests for a seated dinner in the Main Hall with smaller rooms available for smaller party sizes.
One Marylebone is a celebration of old world glamour and prestige, making it the perfect venue for a traditional high-class banquet and one of the best banqueting halls in London. With unrivalled architecture, beautiful lighting and space to meet almost anyone’s catering needs, One Marylebone is a beautiful yet still functional space which is located perfectly near London’s famous Regent’s Park.
One Marylebone isn’t just a traditional space though: its basement hosts a modern venue which is perfect for a post-dinner dance and party space for guests that want to drink and party into the early hours.
Finding the perfect banqueting hall might be a difficult task, but it is the lynch pin in any party plan and with the right location and venue, everything else can easily fall in to place. Spend time picking out the right venue which meets all your needs and whims, and you won’t regret thinking deeply about your choice.
