Have you booked or celebrated your Christmas get together and started setting your sights on plans for 2022? Well with a New Year, comes new venues…
All of the below have either just launched or have recently been refurbished. Whether you’re planning some January team building or Q1 conference, we have some brilliant new venues for you to explore.
Let’s start with some fun!
Clays is an activity based venue that takes the fun of clay target shooting but removes the countryside complications of wet weather and muddy boots. The interactive clay target shooting game is played on massive high-resolution screens with multi-player and solo challenges. Take your shots, get competitive and earn points all whilst enjoying fantastic food and drink. This venue guarantees an energetic atmosphere. There’s easy access from Moorgate or Bank station. So it’s the perfect get together location for small teams or the whole company coming from The City!
TOCA Social is located in The 02 Peninsula Square with strong transport links to various locations. This new gaming venue has everything you could need for a party or team celebration. Book smaller group activities or hire the whole 450-person venue. Football inspires much of the gameplay here. However, there is a line-up of four games, with various levels, which pleases both football lovers and those that have never kicked a ball before. They include Striker, Atom Splitter, The Eliminator and the 15 level Toca Challenge! The food is modern American with a twist. Their Michelin trained chef has meticulously designed the menu to include some comforting classics. Think crispy wings, cheeseburgers, tacos and lots of veggie/vegan options.
Electric Shuffle has injected some sparkle into the traditional shuffleboard game everyone knows and loves. With two new venues, based in Canary Wharf and London Bridge, this awesome shuffleboard experience is the ideal corporate icebreaker. Puck by puck, guests will be in for an unforgettable event for 33 to 350 guests. A Gamemaster will guide you through the competitive games, delicious food and an extensive cocktail menu will keep you well fuelled too!
Now we’re turning our attention to some sophisticated conference and/or awards venues…
If you haven’t seen it, then you need to book a site visit to gawp at this gorgeous new venue! Pan Pacific Hotel is near Liverpool Street station. All meeting spaces are beautiful, professional and fully equipped. Yet, it is the pillar-less 400 seater ballroom that is the hotel’s showstopper. At the end of a busy day, why not enjoy some signature Singaporean cuisine at the Straits Kitchen restaurant? Or, sip on an Asia inspired cocktails at the sleek Ginger Lily, then delve into luxury at the infinity pool and spa. This new hotel venue has it all!
Location is everything for new venues. The Londoner is the world’s first super boutique hotel in the heart of the West End. This urban resort has a collection of spaces, tastes and experiences, which are brought to life across 16 storeys. Ultimately, this venue aims to reflect the drama and elegance of West End life. Epitomised by dining at the French Mediterranean Whitcomb’s restaurant and Joshua’s Tavern, which boasts an eclectic selection of gin and Gintonicas. Don’t miss out on 8 at The Londoner, a rooftop izakaya lounge, that reimagines traditional Japanese style of dining and drinking.
The one we’ve been waiting for! Their multi-million pound redevelopment is future-focused, allowing BAFTA to provide innovative, state-of-the-art, facilities. The iconic London headquarters in Piccadilly, is currently closed to the public as they put on the final touches. The events space, spread across five floors, will have a high-end technology in every room. Showing BAFTA to be a world-leading independent arts charity who are supporting and promoting moving image as an art form. They are set to officially open in early 2022 for private hire, so make sure to get your enquiries in now!
