When we think of a summer soirée event, the first things that come to mind are beautiful sunny venues, elegant catering with the summery drinks such as Pimms and Prosecco, combined with barbecue bowl food and canapés. However, we are finding that over the past few years, event bookers are trying to create summer events that are off-the-wall and surprising for guests. To take your summer soirée event to the next level we recommend either using one of London’s unique and wonderful summer soirée venues, some of which are listed below, and perhaps adding a summer theme to tie all of the different elements together, such as entertainment, music and the style of food. Some of our favourite themes this year are Rio Carnivàle, Alice in Wonderland and When it comes to finding a summer soirée venue in London, you will often find the most ideal space hidden away within a venue, such as the fabulous garden area at Rooms on Regent’s Park, or up high on the breathtaking Cannon Bridge Roof Garden. You can also search for summer soirée venues outside of the centre of London in the beautiful palaces and mansions that surround the city, such as the Hurlingham Club or the Old Royal Naval College. Just remember that when you find your summer soirée venue, it is essential to plan for the possibility of rain, as in London you can never be certain even if you plan your summer soirée for the height of summer!
