This month we’re heading to the capital city to give you a few visited and vetted venues in London. We’ve chosen three highly original boutique hotels, each with a style that sets it apart from the rest.
Quirky, original, this is a venue that is guaranteed to appeal to (and ignite!) your creative spirit
- The lobby is creatively divided into meet and greet areas for socialising and relaxing
- The High Street Window serves healthy snacks ‘street side’ – just walk up and place your order!
- The Hoi Polloi English Brasserie restaurant and ‘Miranda’, the performance venue in the basement
Modern, forward thinking businesses looking for something different to amuse and engage the team
Modern & funky
The hotel sits on the original site of the Shoreditch Empire music hall, and there is definitely a sense of the theatrical in the design of this very new (opened 2013) hotel.
The hotel has 258 guest rooms and a 100 cover restaurant and a large lobby lounge / reception area that also houses a café and an art gallery. The main event space is a 600 sq ft room on the 7th floor called the 100 Room. This space can be adapted to your needs, whether you want a private meeting with the team or to entertain a large gathering of customers. The meeting room is equipped with a 90 inch video wall and leads onto the Terrace Bar, which can accommodate 150 for a reception style event and enjoys fantastic views across the City of London. The Britannia Room is also available if you want a more traditional board table/meeting room set up, with the obligatory contemporary twist, of course.
Hotel Indigo London
Old meets new in this quirky hotel in the heart of the city, just a 10 minute walk from the Tower of London
- Four poster bed in every room – along with an iPod docking station!
- WiFi enabled laptops can be rented free of charge from reception
- Continental cuisine from the Square Mile kitchen and lounge restaurant
Smaller modern companies and younger funkier customers rather than those with traditional expectations and tastes
Small, but perfectly formed
The hotel has 46 bedrooms, two suites and one meeting room, the Vine Business Suite, which can accommodate up to 30 people in a theatre style arrangement. The suite has all the latest meeting technologies, including a projector screen and video and teleconferencing equipment.
Town Hall Hotel
Step back in time to the 1920s – this delightful hotel has many original features and furniture from the period
- Beautifully restored and preserved architectural style
- Hollywood connection – the hotel was used as a setting for many scenes in the multi-award winning film Atonement
- The Typing Room restaurant where the best local and seasonal British ingredients are put to good use
A wide range of corporate meetings and events for companies and individuals looking for the most unusual and stylish surroundings
Historic meeting spaces
The overnight accommodation is very beautiful, with a choice of individually designed one, two and three bedroom suites. The three main meeting spaces are equally delightful, and each has its own particular quirk.
The magnificent art-deco Council Chamber has the original style green leather bench seating and fold down wooden desks, providing a very unusual theatre style venue for up to 100 people, with an ante-chamber right next door for a drinks reception, perhaps.
The De Montfort Suite is located in what was the main Council room. This self-contained venue has high ceilings and stained glass windows, creating a stunning environment for up to 20 for a board room meeting or 100 for an evening reception. The suite also has its own kitchen, making it suitable for private dinners.
