Corporate Christmas events are a great opportunity to throw an end of the year party that will reward and inspire your colleagues, but choosing that perfect venue in London can sometimes be an impossible task – with the hundreds of possibilities available, it’s important you choose one that allows you to host the party exactly how you want. You may have a small group of less than 100 people – in which case you may want to consider one of MELON’s shared Christmas parties, but for those of you with about 100-400 people, somewhere like Sea Containers provides a vibrant, flexible space that can be adjusted as you see fit, meaning you can tailor your event so that it projects the personality and character that you desire. Here’s our top 4 reasons that Sea Containers is the best blank canvas event space in London.
Stunning Views of Iconic London
Sea Containers is a stone’s throw from the City of London – located on Southbank, a 2 minute walk away from London Blackfriars. Sitting on The Thames, the breathtaking view from sunrise to sunset encapsulates The Shard, The Walkie Talkie, The Cheesegrater, St Paul’s Cathedral, The OXO Tower, and the London Eye. The venue really is in the heart of London, meaning the backdrop can impress at most different types of event; so, whether it be an alfresco summer party on the roof terrace, a product launch or a showcase for 200 in the amphitheater, you’ll have a skyline behind you that will inspire and be remembered.
The Sheer Choice of Spaces
Sea Containers has 6 spaces available; all of which span the wonderful London skyline. Sunset is the largest space in the venue and is ideal for large and informal parties, with floor to ceiling windows casing the sun as it slides into the Thames. Sunset can hold 400 people standing or 150 seated. Level 12 is the next largest area available in the venue – a super flexible floor which can be made in to one large room or two, three of four smaller rooms. The room can also provide for 150 seated, with up to 200 standing – it is a sleek party spot and can accommodate in style. Cucumber is another one of the more popular offerings within the Sea Containers, one of our sleeker spots, with a curvaceous green bar that can fit up to 100 seated.
Stylish Interiors and Contemporary Menus
Sea Containers has an interior that is newly designed and the venue is skillful at carefully combining luxury with relaxation. Take Sunset for example – the room is arrayed in the colors of the sunset, with the green cucumber-esque bar taking its place in the middle; it is rare for a venue to be this perfectly stylish and still be such a great place to chill out.
Sea Containers was designed for amazing parties – the variety of spaces over several floors means it can accommodate the event that you are imagining whilst providing a real one of a kind experience.
