Events @ No. 6 –
Dedicated to Excellence
and Innovation in Hospitality.
It’s always great to welcome a new venue to the London Events scene but to be really blown away by somewhere new is genuinely refreshing, especially when you’ve been around as long as I have! Events @ No. 6 is a partnership between Vacherin, Independent Caterers and The Royal College of Pathologists, who’s brand new headquarters building in The City has been carefully designed, planned and built to the highest specifications to serve both the College’s needs and create an innovative and exciting events space.
Sleek matt wood and architectural polished concrete give an immediate feeling of refined luxury. The string quintet, supplied by Velvet Entertainment, whisked us into a spacious reception and set an atmosphere of warmth and welcome. Later it was fascinating how their themes and airs drifted up to the main event space but did not overwhelm. Vacherin showed off with a fresh Prosecco Era, Extra Dry the perfect dry but fruity combination to match generous offerings of captivating and original canapes. Date sweetcorn fritter with smashed avocado; Parmesan black olive shortbread parsley pesto & feta cheese or London hot smoked salmon mousse, salmon caviar, crème fraiche gel bronze fennel are just three of some delicious flavour combinations.
There are six event rooms spread over three floors which accommodate between 20 and 210 people. Several of the rooms connect and can be used in combination giving a whole variety of event options. The two largest seating 210 and 100 theatre style have flat floors – no more raked seating to negotiate – and audio visual services to the highest current spec mean everyone has good views and access for daytime meetings. What is really exciting is the two spectacular roof terraces, each holding around 100 guests. One looks towards The City Skyline with its iconic buildings. The other vista stretches along the Thames from Canary Wharf, The Shard and the Palace of Westminster.
The DatebooK was given early and privileged access to No. 6 so we should be ahead of the game in bringing you this news. We all want something new, exciting and of quality and this venue delivers. No. 6 really is going to be popular so get there and confirm your event as early as possible.
