Guests were greeted with hot cider, mulled wine, Prosecco cocktails and a selection of pork and tofu filled steamed rolls from Yum Buns, mushroom and fish filled tacos from Breddos Tacos and salted caramel and chocolate custard doughnuts from You Doughnut as they arrived at the 1000 capacity venue Dinerama.
Attendees were then transported to the 3000 capacity venue Hawker House where they continued to explore London Union spaces and the food available from traders including Rola Wala, Smokestak, Meat Hook and Milk & Honey Mercury lounge.
Emma Howe, Sales Director commented; ‘We were thrilled to welcome so many event agencies to our venues on Friday evening, the feedback has been overwhelming. Our aim for this year is to continue to create unique experiences with bespoke menus from some of the best food traders in the UK for our event bookers’.
Since launching the London Union events offering following the appointment of Emma Howe as Sales Director in October, the venues have been inundated with event enquiries from bookers looking for alternative spaces for launch parties, exhibitions, conferences and Christmas parties.
London Union who recently partnered with ISES and welcomed a panel of industry leaders including Deborah Armstrong, Summerland; Kevin Jackson, EITM and Michael Wyrley, TRO to Dinerama to discuss ‘New events and experiences, what they should look like’, will be adding to their venue portfolio in 2016. They will continue to take underused and neglected spaces in London turning them into bustling street food markets and some of London’s most vibrant nights out.
