After Work Drinks Hire Guide

Most likely you won't be the only one with an idea of getting after work drinks, especially on a Friday in a busy city like London. To avoid having to wait for a table to free up and ruining everyone's mood, the best solution is to hire a private space. A private space will spare you the loudness of a bar, allow faster service and give you the whole room all to yourselves!

Here are some of our favourite locations in London for after work drinks:

  • City of London – The location with the most choices for those who don’t like to feel limited. One can never go wrong with picking an after work drinks venue in the City of London. It is the most accessible, but also a very in-demand location due to the large density of offices.
  • Canary Wharf – Even though Canary Wharf is mostly known as a business district, there are still many places worth exploring there. It's best suited for live music, craft beer and experimental cocktail lovers. Canary Wharf has an abundance of bars providing all of these elements at one place.
  • Shoreditch –This offbeat alternative district is perfect for someone trying to escape a bad day. In Shoreditch, you can find a bar, a restaurant and a club all in one place. All your wishes can be fulfilled by one venue without needing to move – how convenient is that?
  • Mayfair – Well known for its classy wine and beer places offering delicious food along with drinks. Mayfair is also a great place to slip away to another country by going into a foreign culture themed bar.

Alex Gold
Booked Semi-Exclusive Main Bar at Lost Society (Battersea SW11)
The staff are amazing! From booking through Jasmina who was warm, helpful and always quick to respond through to security who were so lovely (and played as long with my lie to surprise my partner!) and every member of staff inside who couldn’t do enough. They made us feel so welcome & were very attentive. It really was exactly as I’d hoped for, they made the night. The vibe is great, it’s a perfect set up for having your own space to enjoy but still being in the midst of it. Would definitely recommend!! It is pricey but the quality of alcohol and drinks served at least makes you feel somewhat value for money - they don’t hold back on alcohol and the cocktails were brilliant.

Booked Whole Venue Exclusive Hire at SAMA Bankside
We recently hired SAMA for our companies spring social event and it was a huge success. Steve and the Team including Temi were amazing. It was well organised and it ran seamlessly The bar and location are perfect and the food was delicious. The jerk chicken especially was a huge hit, but all of the canapes and bowl food were fresh and delicious. I would highly recommend this venue and their Team.
Booked Basement Bar at Apples & Pears
Amazing night for my other half’s 30th! Great communication with Kim, the staff on the night (Reggie & the bartenders) were so friendly and helpful, and the venue itself is a great size with nice decor. Cocktails were delicious. Allowed to DJ and play our own music. Ordered tasty pizza from next door - arrived on time and great value. Couldn’t recommend more.

Booked Whole Venue Exclusive Hire at SAMA Bankside
Humphrey and Steve were FANTASTIC and the venue was the perfect choice for my 40th. Incredibly accommodating and helped make my birthday very special. Good choice behind the bar, food was good and we filled the space well (we had just over 100 downstairs, which felt perfect). Thanks guys - a night to remember ! Don’t hesitate booking @SAMA (also conveniently located to many hotels, which was super helpful !)
Alex North
Booked The Snug at 68 & Boston
Great service, especially as we needed a slightly larger area than planned and arrived early, food was delicious and regular check-ins on bar tab were really useful in tracking how we were doing. Staff were very attentive to everyone and we couldn't really have asked for any more - great evening.
Kinga Papp
Booked The Ballroom at Upper House
WHOLEHEARTEDLY RECOMMEND! Everything was PHENOMENAL :) We booked the back area for a leaving do for 50 people. The cocktails were great (and good value too!), the food was tasty and the DJ kept us dancing until 3am. The staff was 5*. Emily, the manager was prompt to help us organise it (very easy via email) and Emma and the team were amazing on the day. Anything we asked for was taken care of immediately and with a smile. The door staff was attentive but in a laid-back, polite way. Many guests were gushing about how great of a venue we've chosen. THANK YOU VERY MUCH Dead Dolls House for making this event a truly memorable one for all of our guests and us!
