New events venue The Grubstreet Author, on Milton Street in the heart of Moorgate, is a collection of three spaces, operated by the team behind The Brewery.

Occupying a previously derelict part of the original Whitbread Brewery, the venue will provide space for smaller and intimate events.

Simon Lockwood, creative director at The Brewery said: "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." 

The Grubstreet Author has capacity for up to 70 guests and its three rooms are ideal for meetings, private dinners or product launches.

The Cutting Room (below) is a fully functioning cinema for 48 people. Restored to its former glory and enhanced with the latest AV, signature lighting and tiered red velvet cinema seating.

The Sample Room is the former beer sampling area of the original brewery and is now a contemporary reception area for up to 70 people. 

The Pasteur Room is designed for private dining for up to 70 and can be used in conjunction with The Sample Room to create a separate reception space to host larger standing events.

The venue takes its name from the bohemian area best known for publishing houses, poets and ‘hack writers’ during the 18th century.
