Spotlight On…..2 Soho Square

22 Feb

This month we’d like to use our ‘Spotlight on….’ Blog to introduce 2 Soho Square, an exclusive new venue in the heart of London, who we’re thrilled to be working with as their exclusive caterers!

Situated just off Oxford Street, Soho Square was one of the most fashionable places to live in the early 1680’s, when Soho was first converted from a royal hunting park to a residential area. These days the square is home to several media companies, the charity The House of St Barnabus, St Patrick’s Church – built circa 1891 – and now, MeWe360 at 2 Soho Square.

As a company, MeWe360 combines a not-for-profit development house – MeWe Foundation – with a commercial investment arm, MeWe Trading CIC. The charity, MeWe Foundation, provides business support and training to creative entrepreneurs, along with networks and spaces to meet and work whilst MeWe Trading CIC gives them access to funding. Any profits that MeWe earn from investment are directed back into the charity to support more new entrepreneurs – all in all,  a very exciting company and wonderful support for untapped creative business talent.

The venue itself is a three storey Georgian town house boasting stunning features including high ceilings, dark wood floors and lots of beautiful natural light – the feeling here is traditional with a modern twist. There are four spaces available and part of the beauty of this venue is the flexibility of hire options – 2 Soho Square can be hired by the room, by the floor or even as an entire venue if you really want to make an impression!

The boardroom and hub space on the ground floor are both painted clean white, as is the event space on the first floor, providing a stunning blank canvas for any event theme. Thanks to the impressive architecture and the pure white of the walls, even the lighting used can make a huge impact on the look and atmosphere of the space and any colour scheme will pop against the neutral backdrop. As such the venue is perfect for all events from product launches and press days to workshops and private parties.

 

 

 

 

 

There’s even a courtyard space which, come the summer months, will be perfect for guests to spill out into to make the most of warm summer evenings with drinks in hand and canapes circulating.

The final space, the Drawing Room, is a traditional wood panelled room with light grey walls, floor to ceiling windows and a view that extends across Soho Square – the perfect surroundings for sophisticated private dining events, just take a look at how gorgeous it is dressed for dinner!

This space could also work for corporate drinks events or even boardroom meetings if you’re looking for somewhere truly impressive to entertain clients.

 

2 Soho Square only became available as an events space last month and we can already see that it’s going to be huge………and we’re looking forward to working with them and being a part of that! So if you’re looking for an exciting new venue, look no further – with all of its flexibility, 2 Soho Square is sure to delight organisers and guests alike and, with it being so new, you’ll get all the kudos for knowing the greatest spots before they’re famous. Trust us……….. soon 2 Soho Square is going to be on everyone’s hot list!
