The South Gallery can accommodate 120 guests for dinner, the Gig Room can be used as a conference space by day and the Main Bar houses former stables that can be booked for groups of 50.

Project

Project, just off Oxford Street, is available as a venue for after parties, corporate events, and private viewings as it has LED screens throughout. It was used by car company Seat as a Christmas party venue and for catwalk shows during London Fashion Week.

The club's capacity is 400 but sections can be closed off to suit smaller groups. The club nights are Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday so it is unavailable for exclusive use on these nights.
