A new events venue is coming to London, The Grubstreet Author on Milton Street in the heart of Moorgate, is a collection of three luxuriously designed spaces, operated by the team behind The Brewery.
Occupying a previously forgotten and derelict part of the original Whitbread Brewery, the venue will fulfil the need for smaller numbers and intimate events in the City. Comprising three striking rooms, each with their own history and story to tell, The Grubstreet Author is the modern events venue to spark imagination for up to 70 guests, and perfectly suited for meetings, private dinners or product launches.
With a private entrance on Milton Street, previously known as Grub Street, the venue takes its name from the bohemian area best known for publishing houses, poets and ‘hack writers’ during the 18th Century. The venue has been given new purpose with a contemporary design approach, featuring:
- The Cutting Room; a fully functioning cinema auditorium for 48 people. Restored to its former glory and enhanced with the latest AV, signature lighting and tiered red velvet cinema seating creates a quirky and elegant setting.
- The Sample Room; the former beer sampling area of the original brewery is a contemporary reception area for up to 70 to get the creative juices flowing. A metallic bar with glowing neon quill, bold herringbone floor and luxurious furnishings will become a feature for cocktail receptions and networking.
- The Pasteur Room; named after the original room in The Brewery for beer fermenting, the stunning tiled roof and commanding burnt iron chandelier is designed for private dining for up to 70. The Pasteur Room can be used in conjunction with The Sample Room to create a separate reception space to host larger standing events.
Simon Lockwood, creative director at The Brewery commented, “We are always looking for ways to develop our offering and with the launch of The Grubstreet Author, we are adding a whole new dimension to what we can provide to event organisers and guests. We’ve seen strong demand for more intimate events with a higher personalisation and exclusivity and have endeavoured to give clients the opportunity to combine luxurious dinning and furnishings with the functionality for corporate presentations. This is a new era for the whole team and we can’t wait for our clients to see the new space and be part of the exciting future for The Brewery and its venues.”
No matter the event, if it’s a high-profile presentation, awards dinner, conference, Christmas party or wedding receptions, The Grubstreet Author is an inspiring and luxurious venue to cater for a variety of occasions.
