Party rooms are versatile places that are designed to host a wide array of parties, gatherings, and celebrations. Some amazing ways to use our party venues are:

Wedding Receptions

Some of the most memorable parties are wedding receptions. Here you can have food and dancing with friends and family to celebrate the new chapter starting in your life. Rooms such as The Last Talisman in Kipling Estate are elegant party spaces with premium leather furniture and a rare  atmosphere that encourages everyone in the room to enjoy a few cocktails and socialise, bringing two families together.

Birthdays

London has plenty to offer when it comes to birthday parties. Soho is one of the party capitals of the world, and it certainly has the venues to prove it. You can expect to find places like clubs for dancing, as well as classic pubs for a couple of beers and a football game depending on your taste and the occasion. Regardless of what you choose, your birthday party in London will be nothing short of an amazing time. Cheers!

Stag & Hen Parties

Right before you tie the knot, you’re going to want to go out with your friends for the night. A great place to start your night off is in one of London’s premier party spaces. Here you can enjoy a chill cocktail party and some great food before hitting the town. Picking a centrally located party room is great, as it throws you right into the action as your party wraps up. There are also some amazing spaces available for the main event of your night, with some great semi-private rooms that will allow for socialising not only with your guests but with some other partiers as well. So, whether you plan on starting your night off or finishing it, Tagvenue has spaces available to make this happen.

How to plan an amazing party in London?

This is an essential question that goes through every party planner’s mind. There are many moving parts that go into planning a party but do not fret; there are a few things to keep in mind that will ensure that your party will go smoothly.

Guests – It is important to know how many people will be attending your party. An easy way to keep track is by requesting an RSVP. Sending out your invitations a few months in advance will allow your guests time to respond and save the date. Once you have a proper guest count you can begin to organise the rest of your party.

Food and Drink – When you figure out how many people will be attending your party, it is time to look into the perfect food and beverage package for your party. Venues will often have a variety of options to choose from, whether it is a cash bar in the event of a minimum spend option, or the all-inclusive open bar, whether it is just beer and wine or a full-service cocktail bar. 

Many places will often have open kitchens for your party. If you are having a sit-down dinner as a part of your evening, you can expect there to be a limited menu for your guests to choose from, and there are also buffet options as well. If you have a preferred caterer, you can check in with the venue to see if they will allow an outside party to provide food for your event.

Vibe – The vibe of your party greatly depends on the occasion and the group of people you are catering to. If it is something more formal, it is best to choose a more elegant space to host the party, but if it is something casual, a pub will often suffice. 

Hints for booking a London party venue:

  • Book as early as possible (the best venues book out months ahead).
  • Consider the location (remember to check public transport connections and parking facilities).
  • Think about the type of venue that will best suit (bar, restaurant, minimum spend venue, dry hire party venue).
  • Establish whether there are any vendor restrictions–if the venue offers catering in-house, ask if you can do a tasting.
  • Check if you’ll have exclusive use of the venue.

Booked The BSMT at The Ladybird Bar
The weekend just gone I hosted my 30th in the basement space of The Ladybird Bar. The security staff were polite, helpful and in good spirits. The manager was tentative to our every request, despite running the main bar and looking after us in the basement at the same time. The owner was also friendly, welcoming and even lined up some shots for a couple of us at the end of the party to thank us for being such good guests. As for the venue.. The sound system was great, the UV wall, lights and styling of the basement was also wicked. Even the retro console got loads of use by the guests, who have all informed me they had a great time too. All in all, Habib, Alvaro and the security team were great and I'd highly recommend hiring the basement bar for similar functions.

Booked The Library at The Alice House Queen's Park
I had my graduation party here and it was absolutely fantastic. The venue was beautiful and very spacious for 50 guests to dance, drink and eat! The service was incredible too, I was able to contact the manager on the days leading up to the event to make changes to the food and drink and it was always handled efficiently and friendly! The team on the day was also super helpful and welcoming towards me and my guests. They really made my dream party come true and have given me and my guests wonderful memories here.

Booked Birdcage at Bird of Smithfield
The birdcage itself was perfect as a venue. Lovely decor and perfect size with good ratio of seating to floor space. Felt cosy and spacious at same time. Glamorous feel to it with lovely blue velvet and gold accents. All guests at party remarked on how nice the venue was. Had its own bar and toilets. Staff helpful and friendly. Could just plug and play my own music. Great location as choice of 4 stations nearby and close to a couple of good hotels. Absolutely a perfect private party place!

Booked The Lounge at Floaty McFloat Face
I booked the venue to celebrate a surprise 22 birthday party for my girlfriend. The boat was lovely decorated with flowers, balloons and colorful lights. Everything went as expected or even better. We really loved the boat and definitely can't wait to celebrate again. Bel was very supportive and Eli was always available. Both were really nice and the service they provided was oustanding. I haven't seen another venue like this which provided so much flexibility to create your event. I would definitely recommend it.

Booked Whole Venue at Bermondsey Social Club
GREAT VENUE, LOVELY TEAM/ STAFF - you won't regret booking here! To be honest, there wasn't anything not to like - had a brilliant 30th birthday party! After my initial inquiry was unsuccessful as the venue had been booked over my proposed date, Theo (manager) took the initiative to get in touch again to let me know that it come free for my 30th birthday party date. He met me at the venue at very short notice and was only too happy to show me around and talk me through all the facilities. Theo was also great on email thereafter - checking in re. whether I wanted drinks on arrival, DJ equipment set up on the night etc. On the night itself, Jake and his team couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. Jake himself held the ladder whilst I strung bunting from the lamps and were just a lovely presence all night - smiling and dancing whilst serving everyone. Maria was great on the door - we didn't have to worry about any gate crashers as she and her colleague checked everybody in on arrival.

Booked The Lounge at Floaty McFloat Face
Very flexible and accommodating venue manager and lots of options to decorate our party. Venue manager was on call throughout the event and was kind enough to quickly come to the rescue to help us change a gas canister and fill the water tank. We had a lovely day.
