Here are some of our favorite venues to host your summer soiree.
We recently visited Altitude, who have four very unique venues, located over four floors of the grade II listed Millbank Tower. And trust us when we say, these venues will definitely get your summer events started with a bang.
The Millbank Media Centre on the ground floor, is a versatile space with its own digital cinema and outdoor terrace, perfect for sipping Pimms in the sun on a clear day. On the other hand, SkyLoft is a popular warehouse style venue with exposed reclaimed brickwork and wooden floor, it really gave us that warm inviting feeling. We could definitely see ourselves sat in one of the highjack chairs, with a cocktail in hand, taking in the amazing views. Finally we saw Altitude 360, a modern, bright and highly original space with incredible 360° views of the capital! They have some great packages to get your delegates in the summer mood. With mouth-watering food and mixologists who will be able to create your perfect drink, we’re sure you will enjoy this venue with a difference.
The Tower Hotel
Serious wow factor here… The Tower Hotel is nestled between the River Thames, St Katharine Docks and alongside the World Heritage Site, the Tower of London. This sets the scene as it boasts unparalleled views of the iconic Tower Bridge. We love the Xi Bar… London is at its best at night and this is the spot to witness it. The Xi Bar has a great atmosphere, an extensive drinks menu and a view overlooking the beautifully lit Tower Bridge and the Shard - experience it all for yourself with an exclusive 20% off cocktails. Or if you want to be closer to the action, cosy up on The Lawn - drink & dine from their delicious menus and take advantage of the special Summer Offer - 3 tapas plates and a bottle of wine for only £25!
Sky Bar and Roof Terrace, Grange St. Paul’s
A spectacular penthouse-level bar overlooking the stunning dome of St. Paul's Cathedral. Complete with rooftop terrace and conservatory, guests can enjoy breathtaking views over London. You have have a summer BBQ with the iconic backdrop of St. Paul’s cathedral.

Kensington Roof Garden
The Roof Garden is an stunning setting in the heart of London and is well known for being the place to be seen rubbing shoulders with Maria Sharapova and Liam Hemswort.
In the Spanish Garden, you can dine under the stars surrounded by exotic wildlife 100 feet above Kensington High Street. The Roof Garden is as a stunning backdrop for an exclusive event for up to 500 guests, an amazing dining experience in Babylon Restaurant or a stylish night out at The Roof Garden private members club.

When people think of meeting rooms, they automatically think of dull rooms full of rectangular tables, white-washed walls and projector screens. However, our work with over 70,000 venues around the world has led us to firmly believe that no two meeting rooms are the same and there is a lot of room for creativity when it comes to organizing meetings and conferences.
Following in the footsteps of the world's big tech companies such as Google and Facebook, many companies are now seeing the benefits of 'thinking outside the box' when it comes to designing their meeting and conference space. Here we look at 17 of the coolest meeting rooms around the world. We are sure there are many more, but these are our favorites! Let us know what you think in the comments section.
