Get convivial

We love a party here at Tobacco Dock! Reward your team, thank your clients and have fun, whatever the time of year. Whether you’re looking for a formal banquet, opulent drinks reception, private dining or even games on our rooftop, we are one of the most versatile corporate party venues in London.

Our spaces are ideal for a range of party sizes and formats, and include plenty of room for live entertainment, flexible layouts and impactful branding and theming ideas.

Why not raise a glass in our airy, light-filled Quayside 1? Giving out onto the cobbled Quayside walkway, your guests can enjoy views of our famous ‘pirate ships’ and iconic entrance. The atmospheric Quayside Bar and chic speakeasy, Dock St Bar, are both stylish settings for drinks receptions, parties and awards after-parties. The Great Gallery meanwhile, can accommodate dinners for 800 guests, with the adjacent Galleries Courtyard providing a beautiful area for a pre-event drinks reception.

We also have a host of outdoor drinks reception spaces (all benefitting from plenty of covered areas). Drinks receptions work very well in the North and South Vaults, where the barrel-ceilinged spaces and central bandstand provide ample styling and theming opportunities. The Rooftop offers spectacular views of the city skyline, an extensive wine and cocktail menu and delicious street food, as well as seasonal activities – croquet and pétanque.

In a venue as flexible as this, we can make anything happen, so for more inspiration and options, get in touch with the sales team, who will be delighted to help build your corporate party or drinks reception event.
