London's Top New Event Venues to be Promoted at The Meetings Show

The Meetings Show will run this week in London from July 8 to 10 at the Olympia Conference Centre. The city's tourism board, London & Partners, will be on-hand, and will also be promoting some notable new event venues that have recently opened or are due to debut in the coming months. 

At the Roundhouse in Camden, a  rooftop garden complete with trees, sun loungers, sofas and even a swimming pool will welcome guests throughout July and August. The venue has space for 120 people overlooking the venue’s popular ‘Camden Beach’ and views out across the London skyline, and is a good pick for summer parties and events.

The Chiltern Firehouse in Marylebone is now available for room reservations. The historic building has been recently restored with 26 bedrooms that have 270 degree views of Marylebone and the city beyond. Little information has been released about the venue and bookings can only be made by email or phone. 

Near Barbican, The Brewery has turned the venue’s 18th century cobbled courtyard into a secret garden in the City of London neighborhood. The building has  a raised clear roof - in case of any summer showers - and outdoor seating.

On the banks of the River Thames above The Globe’s Swan restaurant is the newly refurbished Shakespearean Balcony Room, with panoramic views of the river and St Paul’s Cathedral framed by floor to ceiling French doors, opening out to an exclusive private balcony. 

In central London, hidden behind a door on St Martin’s Lane, is LIBRARY, a new design-led private members’ club. The main hub has a double mezzanine, stage and a floor-to-ceiling bar as well as six bedrooms with 24-hour concierge service. The building also includes a whiskey and wine room, the eponymous library and a restaurant that is set to open in September. Bedrooms and spaces in the club are available for private hire.

In Mayfair, The Beaumont Hotel will open its doors in September. The venue will have an inhabitable sculpture of a crouching man called Room by artist Antony Gormley. Developed by restaurateurs Jeremy King and Chris Corbin the 75-room hotel will include a Presidential suite, a 100-seater classic New York-style restaurant, a private dining room, and spa and leisure facilities.

Later in the Autumn, Mark Sainsbury and Michael Benyon's Zetter Group will open the Zetter Townhouse Marylebone. The six-story, 24-bedroom hotel will have interiors by Russell Sage Studios, a  suite on the top floor, a cocktail bar on the ground floor and a roof terrace. 

At The Meetings Show

London & Partners will be joined at The Meetings Show by 13 meetings and events venues from across the capital. Stand partner Radisson Blu Edwardian, will introduce their ‘Brain Food’ concept: Developed in collaboration with nutritional experts, chefs and food supply partners, the menu is designed to keep delegate’s blood sugar levels constant, helping them stay focused and enhance brain energy. 

Lord’s Cricket Ground will also unveil a new cricket-themed day delegate package for its multi-purpose Thomas Lord Suite at the event. The new package brings elements of cricket to the venue’s conference and meetings offering with new catering options, including a special Player’s Breakfast and the signature Lord’s afternoon tea.

Luxury hotel group The Doyle Collection will also demonstrate their health bar at The Meetings Show. The group’s three London hotels in Marylebone, Bloomsbury and Kensington now have ‘The Juicery’, offering a selection of fruit and vegetable juices, shots and smoothies.
