Managed by the renowned Maslow’s hospitality group (also behind Mortimer House), 1 Warwick offers an array of spaces, from cosy meeting rooms and chic lounges to dynamic event spaces, a studio, gym, and even a rooftop restaurant with a bar and terrace.

1 Warwick would be an ideal event space for a senior leadership away day with its beautifully designed meeting rooms, seating between 6 and 16 attendees. Their restaurants provide “room service” throughout the day, keeping things more informal and relaxed. The Library offers a welcome retreat from the lively streets of Soho, with a secret screen thoughtfully hidden behind artwork, alongside top-notch AV facilities.

Located in the heart of Brixton, an area buzzing with music and culture, 100 Barrington stands as a tranquil oasis away from the hustle and bustle. 

This venue serves as a versatile blank canvas, comprising three distinct spaces that cater to a variety of event formats. The large warehouse space is perfect for formal dining or food stations, as well as dancing the night away. Outside, there is a wonderful courtyard, partially covered and filled with plants and festoon lights, perfect for a breezy outdoor gathering. Connecting the warehouse and the courtyard, the venue boasts a magnificent bar nestled within an old railway arch. This space features an impressive 24-foot ceiling and a stunning statement chandelier.

Exhibition London, originally a historic Victorian railway engine house, has been reimagined for contemporary culture, offering one of the largest event spaces in the city. The 1,200 square meters of multi-purpose space is set across two floors, combining a heritage look and feel with contemporary design and cutting-edge functionality.

The dramatic design of the space features high ceilings, exposed roof trusses, original windows, and the original train crane structure. These elements, combined with modern materials and fixtures, infuse personality and character into the vast space in a considered way.

From a corporate events perspective, Exhibition London is a truly versatile venue, providing a broad scope for various event types and design possibilities. While the spaces are large, clever set designs can create more intimate areas for different elements of the event, enabling you to craft something very special and unique.

The team behind Exhibition London has also prioritised practicalities, which are often overlooked yet crucial. The venue boasts bespoke kitchens, cloakrooms accommodating 3,000 people, production access and parking, a production office, dressing rooms, a box office (perfect for registrations or end-of-event gifting), and high-end technical facilities. This attention to detail ensures that your event runs smoothly and impresses your guests.

When we say Frameless is perfect for an immersive experience, we mean it! Frameless comprises four multi-sensory gallery spaces, showcasing 42 masterpieces from 29 of the world’s most iconic artists – think Monet, Van Gogh, Klimt, Cezanne, Kandinsky and more. These artworks are reimagined with hypnotic visuals and set to thought-provoking musical scores, creating an unusual and engaging atmosphere. 

For larger events, you can hire all four gallery spaces. However, for up to 120 standing guests or 80 seated guests, their Blank Canvas space is ideal. As the name suggests, this space allows you to create your own environment for a truly unique setting. As London’s foremost immersive venue, Frameless offers state-of-the-art technical facilities to help you create a bespoke event design. This would be perfect for product launches or brand events, as you can display your own video campaigns, content, branding, and sponsor materials, creating a never-seen-before backdrop for your event. 

Frameless combines art, technology, and creativity, making it an exceptional choice for corporate events that aim to leave a lasting impression.


Versatile Venue with Artistic Flair

The Mall Galleries comprise three unique spaces, each offering varied sizes, layouts, aesthetics, designs, and features, making them ideal for hosting a wide range of events. They curate an inspiring programme of exhibitions throughout the year, with artworks providing an interesting and varied backdrop to events, sparking exciting conversations and engagement.

Set within a historic building on the prestigious Mall, just a stone’s throw from Buckingham Palace, The Mall Galleries offer a blank canvas venue space. This allows ultimate flexibility to design your event’s look and feel. You could curate a private exhibition as part of a product launch or completely transform the entire space into a speakeasy or sensory woodland. 

Hiring the Mall Galleries for an event also supports the charitable objectives of the Federation of British Artists, empowering artists through not-for-profit programmes and events, which is a lovely mission and a nice way for a company or brand to incorporate Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) into their event. 


Royal Retreat for Exclusive Corporate Events

Capacity: Reception: 300 | Dinner: 200 | Reception & Dinner: 120

Location: Kensington

Nearest Tube: High Street Kensington

Ideal For: Receptions, Dinners, Christmas Parties, Summer Soirees

The Orangery, nestled within the beautifully manicured gardens of Kensington Palace, has recently reopened for private event hire after being closed for restoration since 2017. This truly exclusive space hosts a limited number of events each year, set amongst the grounds of a royal residence. You can also opt to include private tours of further spaces, such as the State Apartments which adds an extra layer of something special for guests to enjoy. 

The renovation includes restored south-facing windows and pristine white walls, creating a light-filled space to add your personal touch, whether with floral arrangements or corporate branding. The new extension to The Orangery provides additional space, making it suitable for a variety of event types.

Despite its proximity to Kensington High Street and its grounds’ popularity amongst visitors, The Orangery offers seclusion, privacy, and exclusivity. We feel the Orangery is perfect for receptions and dinners, especially in the summer, when guests can enjoy the private terrace and grounds before and after dinner. 

Hosting an event at Kensington Palace supports the work of Historic Royal Palaces, a charity which gives the palaces a future, for everyone; through research, preservation and restoration. Their portfolio also includes Hampton Court Palace and Banqueting House, which are firm favourites of the ByChenai team.

The Lookout offers an unparalleled event experience with the city of London at its feet. Located on the 50th floor of the 8 Bishopsgate building, the Lookout boasts floor-to-ceiling windows that provide stunning views of the city skyline, impressive both day and night.

The venue features a large, L-shaped main event space that can be thoughtfully divided to create separate reception and dining areas. Adjacent to this main space are executive suites with moveable walls, offering ultimate flexibility. These suites can either extend the main space or be used independently as breakout spaces, green rooms, or production offices, allowing you to tailor the layout to perfectly suit your event. It serves equally as a blank canvas, ready for you to decorate or brand as needed, and a simplistic space with the London skyline as your stunning backdrop.

One unique feature of The Lookout is the Think Tank, a state-of-the-art auditorium, located within the same building. It’s perfect for conferences, seminars, performances, and awards, with a theatre-style capacity of 200 people. The seating is fully retractable, allowing for creative use of the space for other activities, such as yoga or wellness sessions, making it an incredibly versatile venue for any corporate event.

The venue is well-equipped for a range of events, featuring state-of-the-art lighting, sound and video facilities, with ample branding opportunities. 

With its industrial-style interior, the space also acts as a gallery, with a rotating collection of artworks that change every five weeks, offering guests a more immersive experience. This allows you to design an event that holistically links the menu, beverages, tablescape, and artwork.

We feel Unit X at Hanover Square would be a perfect spot for a client dinner, offering a modest exterior but providing a super special, intimate setting within.
