We organise our parties responsibly.

What’s your poison?  Bellinis in bellies, mesmerized by martinis, stirred by kirs and brainwashed by bloody marys. At Eventwise we love them all, but we cherish entertainment most of all. We are obsessive about logistics and agonise over attention to detail so if you have come to our site in search of a unadulterated fun, you’ve come to the right place.

We can take all the stress off your hands when it comes to hosting London drinks receptions and perfect parties. From start to finish Eventwise can take everything from guestlists to jaw-dropping entertainers off your hands.

In the same way that first appearances matter on a date, your venue is critically important when it comes to first impressions. Perhaps it is an important birthday or you want to entertain clients. Either way London is a bounty when it comes to party venues but each one promises to be the most magnificent making it very hard to sort the wheat from the chaff. But that is where we come in.

  • we can direct you to those venues that we know to be successes time and time again.
  • We can help you to assess locations,
  • licencing times,
  • venue restrictions
  • and what you can get for your budget to make sure you have an ideal destination to make a scene.

We have selected some of the best drinks receptions and party venues in London on our website to help you get a taster of just how much we can do. From contemporary gallery spaces, historic venues, museums to national treasures we really believe we have the brightest and the best.

Places for champagne and wine

Take the Design Museum for example. Being one of London’s most sought-after party venues, the Design Museum is located in an elegant modernist building on the River Thames by Tower Bridge with spectacular views of the City and Canary Wharf. Described by the fashion designer Paul Smith as “the natural home for everyone who has ever enjoyed or appreciated design”, it certainly makes a statement to your guests.

Madam Tussauds is another party venue certain to go down a storm. Your guests can pose with the stars or scare each other as they hide among statues. In the past we have taken party-goers on a musical trip on the Spirit of London Ride before moving up to ‘Blush’ for reception drinks amongst contemporary stars of television, film and sport. Delicious party catering can be served at the World Stage where your guests can mingle with all of the (unfortunately wax work) A-list Hollywood celebrities. Order in your favourite caterers or use our sought-after chefs. As the evening ensues with entertainment and dancing, give guests a scare as they depart through the infamous Chamber of Horrors.

For a more modern venue you can hire out London’s most fashionable and cutting edge clubs, such a Fabric in Farringdon. This venue is renowned for hosting parties that don’t stop until the break of day. We can arrange winning DJ sets or catwalks – whatever tickles your fancy.

Just some names…

It is no surprise that our list of clients includes household names such as Facebook, Specsavers, Channel 4, Tesco and Morgan Stanley. But we don’t just do big bashes. It is important to us that we fulfil our clients’ every need, so if that means small and practical we are experts in making that happen too.

drinks reception venue in London

We recently visited the infamous Cereal Killer Café  in Shoreditch. The event was attended by event organizers from Candy Kitten, Emap, Butler & Wilson, Ashurst, Slaughter & May and Olswang amongst others. Before the visit guests were asked to select their favourite cereal, before adding their own milk selection, toppings and a Pop Tart side of their choice.

We used their breakfast choices as a personality quiz to tried and match each person with their ideal venue. So whether guests opted for Fruit Loops or Vanilla Chex, they came away with an interesting, personal venue recommendation to consider.

As well as having a lot of fun and building business relationships, it demonstrates that even our low key events are unique and designed to suit you. We don’t charge for ideas so if you want to get brainstorming, pick up the phone.

We promise to surprise you with how much we can do, whether it is fully fledged banquets to invitation design. You’ll soon learn how much energy and excitement our teams of event planning enthusiasts can pump into any occasion.
