Best Christmas Corporate Party Venue
An art deco Grade II listed venue: Freemasons’ Hall is unique, spectacular, and awash with history. The Grand Temple forms the centrepiece: all burnished golds, ornate ceiling paintings, and original fixtures. The venue was designed for large events – unlike other premier venues in London that have day jobs as museums or galleries – and it boasts grand proportions, clear sightlines and perfect acoustics. As well as hosting premières, launch parties, and London Fashion Week it is also a popular film location Smart Christmas Parties have created immersive spectacles here for clients including Thomson Reuters, L’Oreal and BUPA. To provide exceptional service we installed a 30-foot bar, ensured smooth crowd flow, provided surprise distractions (casinos and photobooths), and delivered faultless food services for up to 1,600 guests. Smaller events fit perfectly in our Gatsby Club, a roaring ‘20s themed space with prohibition-style speakeasies, flapper girls and dapper dancers Our events draw inspiration from the incredible venue and our clients – then we deliver spectacular entertainment and delicious food (including spiced lobster and pickled nashi pear, confit belly pork with black cherry, or Christmas classics) without neglecting those little details, the temperature in the cloakroom, and the scent of the candles.
