The venue, which opened last month, offers six spaces capable of hosting groups of 10 to 150 for dinner and cocktail receptions for 250, as well as offering exclusive hire for larger groups.

Spaces include a design-led amphitheatre for up to 200 delegates, a private dining room with a balcony overlooking St. Paul’s Cathedral, and a roof terrace for up to 150 guests. The 12th floor includes a blank canvas space with a private balcony overlooking the Thames, which can also be divided into four smaller spaces.

Food and drink will be sourced from independent suppliers, ranging from food stalls to more formal seated dinner menus. An on-site baker will also provide cakes and biscuits.

John Nugent, Green & Fortune’s chief executive said: "These are special spaces and we've been very aware of designing the kind of unique offering that lends itself to fresh and innovative events. The premise of Sea Containers Events is to be individual - to be exceptional - to be remembered: the kind of space where brands strive to be seen."
