Why Venues with Outside Space are the Best

The Roof Gardens in Kensington

Summer is nearing its end, but there’s still time to open the parasol, crack out the Pimms and get your flip-flops on for one last time. Hosting a party is always fun, but when the sun is out we feel you MUST take advantage and use one of our venues with a courtyard or outside space. Here are a few reasons why we think venues with outside space are the best…

Catch Some Rays

Our summers may not be the hottest in the world, but those windy, freezing months of December and January are on their way, so why not take advantage and hold an end of summer party so that you can savour every second that can be spent outside in the sunshine. We know, of course, that the MET Office have never been 100% sure of the weather and you cannot simply trust it to be pleasing here in Britain, and whilst some of our venues allow you to remain outside all year round (such as The Golden Bee with its impressive fire pit), the majority of our courtyard style venues have indoor areas so there is weather protection for all guests – Our favourite being The Boundary which has cover from rain and a heated orangery.  Fingers crossed there won’t be a shower, but even if there is, it’s impossible to rain out our summer party venues, due to their covered areas.

Get the BBQ out

Grilled meats and skewered vegetables on an open flame is a British summertime tradition – If you’re like us then you aren’t ready to put the barbeques away just yet. MELON has a number of locations with BBQs – There’s nothing better after a long week at work than enjoying a sip of Pimms whilst you watch your burger cooked in front of you by one of our top-quality chefs. Make sure to check out the London Summer House at South Bank, which allows for BBQs both in the day and at night, so you can keep the grill on late into the evening!

Being outside!

Brits spend 92% of ALL their time indoors, which is unhealthy for both body and mind. Outdoor parties are a great way to get outside, appreciate some fresh air and even enjoy the scenery if you consider one of our rooftop venues – Radio Rooftop’s terrace is our pick in terms of having the most spectacular view! Being in the fresh air provides a certain type of relaxed atmosphere and ambience, particularly for those of your guests who work in doors at a desk all day. Why not enjoy the great outdoors at Kensington Roof Gardens – looking out over one of the most well maintained and beautiful huge open green spaces right in the centre of the capital. At the roof gardens you can explore three themed gardens over one and a half acres of land – particularly enjoyable with a cold pint in hand.

Whether you decide to host your event indoors or out, MELON has a selection of venues and anticipates all of your needs – Check out our summer party venues, in which we have a selection of courtyard and rooftop locations.
