Welcome to your ultimate guide to this year’s hottest corporate summer party venues. Whether you are looking for a laid-back rooftop, a day in the park or a full-blown festival feel, we know just the spot!

The Serpentine Lido Cafe

Take over the heart of Hyde Park with a lakeside festivity at the Serpentine Lido Cafe. Because nothing says ‘London summer’ quite like enjoying a glass of Aperol Spritz in the summer sun while watching a pedalo race on the Serpentine. The newly renovated cafe and rooftop also offer amazing views of the royal park, accompanied by summer-y cocktails and BBQ delicacies. For the braver souls, the Lido swimming area is also just a stone’s throw away, so you will always have a place to cool down, if the party gets a little too heated.

Celebrate the summer with an amazing view of the London skyline at the Skylight Tobacco Dock rooftop. This hip venue offers a laid-back lounge feel with its indoor and outdoor seating options, including a covered outdoors area, so the weather can’t throw you any curveballs. The menu is bursting with funky cocktails and offers a great selection of mouth-watering street food options – from tacos, through burgers, to wings. Our favourite thing about the Tobacco Dock terrace though is their amazing selection of summer games. Get the competitive spirit pumping with a fierce game of petanque or challenge your colleagues to a round of croquet!

If you are looking for a contemporary sophisticated feel for your summer party, then the Coal Office in King’s Cross is the place to go. Designed by Tom Dixon, the restaurant offers unparalleled interiors accompanied by an amazing culinary experience provided by Head Chef Asaf Granit who specialises in creating unique blends of Middle Eastern cuisine. The restaurant upstairs terrace overlooks a quaint stretch of the Regent’s Canal on one side and peeks into the bustle of Coal Drops Yard on the other. Ultimately, the Coal Office is the perfect oasis of calm and design to host your corporate summer event.

Brixton is all the buzz these days. The Pop, with its industrial aesthetic, is a vibrant community venue that prides itself in supporting independent local businesses. The various food stalls offer one of the most diverse mixes of cuisines we have ever seen. You can quite literally go from snacking on some Congolese plantain fritters to eating Japanese curry and finishing your meal with a serving of fresh Spanish churros. YUM! The venue also offers great spaces for live music and dancing, as well relaxed seating options. The Pop Brixton is definitely the place to go for an upbeat, festival-style corporate summer party!

A London staple, the Kew Gardens can really do it all. The Orangery building, with a 400-person capacity, is the perfect venue for an up-scale summer drink reception. You and your colleagues can enjoy a sun-filled afternoon in the vast gardens, founded as early as the 18th century, and polish the evening off with a glass of prosecco under the Orangery’s iconic arched-window facade. At night, you get to experience the building and its surroundings come alive under the beams of colourful ligths that deliver a truly fairy-tale-like ambience.
