A Little About This Space

This event space is in the basement of a brand new quirky coffee shop in St James. During the daytime the ground floor reverberates with the sound of grinding beans as well suited business-folk their cups of contemporary coffee.

However, the basement space can be hired out for events, showrooms, galleries or even supper clubs. The owners are looking for all types of great ideas that will add to their space. In the evenings it could be anything from an experimental supper club or exclusive private view.

Please note that the pricing works out at £99per hour + VAT or £88per hour + VAT for over 5 hour bookings. The advertised price is based on a 9 hour day.

If you're holding a big party the landlord would like to see the project before committing to the price listed, which could likely rise to £750-1000 for the day/night depending on what's required of the staff, building and business operations.
