There’s more than 60,000 pubs and bars in the UK and many offer private event spaces, corporate hire packages and high-level catering and meetings facilities.
Some will offer a room for board meetings and staff get-togethers during the day whilst others will provide wine tasting, whisky masterclasses or beer brewing talks that can be used as team building or employee social nights.
Some pubs have working breweries onsite and can offer an insight into their trade as well as provide an unusual setting for events. Some historic brewery buildings have been converted to provide purpose-built events space. These, buildings, many of them listed, can be cavernous spaces capable of hosting thousands of guests.
UK bars range from themed to swanky, cocktail to gastro. Some of the more exclusive are based within hotels whilst others have city-centre locations that will ensure a high guest turnout.
Private hire is an important revenue stream for these venues so often, great deals can be obtained.
Around Christmas time, pubs and bars can be hired exclusively and double as blank canvas spaces that can be themed or dressed by you. Others operate shared party nights to help keep costs down whilst maintaining a buzz around your event.
