Central London’s newest events venue
Although only officially opened on the 1st March 2014, this vast, unique London venue has already hosted some of London’s most prestigious events, including The Elle Style Awards and the after party for the BRITS with Universal Music and Soho House. Able to host seated dinners for up to 250 and standing receptions for 750, this venue has been tipped by the industry to be a leading London party venue for the forthcoming years.
The site was originally built as part of the Kingsway Tramway Subway connecting the lines in the north and south. The London County Council had for many years wanted to connect its North Side and South Side tramway networks in order to be able to send “North Side” trams for overhaul. In 1902, the Council decided to build a subway from Theobalds Road in the north to the Embankment underneath Waterloo Bridge to the south.
In 1937, the rebuilding of Waterloo Bridge required the diversion of the side entrance to the tramway to a new position centrally underneath the bridge, which opened on 21 November of that year. Trams were abandoned from 1957, and from this point until 2007, the ‘space’ was deserted. It was at this time when the London arm of a worldwide restaurant franchise started construction and opened in autumn 2008. Barely two years later it had closed, and after three further years of laying empty, One Events purchased the property to add to its current portfolio of leading event venues.
