Thames Cable Car Could Become London’s Newest Venue

The Thames Cable Car may become London’s newest venue, under new plans to revive the transport link. Passengers on the Thames cable car will be able drink alcohol and party into the night at 300ft.

London transport bosses have applied for a license to sell alcohol to passengers arriving for their ten minute trips on the Emirates Air Line, which spans the river between the Greenwich Peninsula and the Royal Docks.


Under the proposals, champagne could be served from 10am to 1.30am every day from bars on platforms at each end of the 300ft-high crossing, which was launched by the former Conservative Mayor in June 2012 ahead of the Olympics.

We’d recommend serving a Cable Car Cocktail to your guests should you choose this space for your next event. It’s a delicious mix of vanilla, rum and orange liqueur, created in 1996 by Tony Abou-Ganim at the Starlight Room, a nightclub atop San Francisco’s Sir Francis Drake Hotel.

As well as serving alcohol, the cable car could also show films, play live music and host events such as karaoke and disco nights at the south terminal next to the O2.

We can’t wait to see if this does indeed become London’s newest venue! Get in touch for more inspiration and unique venues.
