The Montague on the Gardens Hotel
In 2011, the Montague saw a way of utilising space on the Wood Deck that was used but not to its full potential. With this in mind we opened London’s first and original Ski Lodge. A pop up style bar that was created to offer something different in the heart of London. Now, in its 8th year, The Ski Lodge is ever growing in the number of visitors and is a well-established Christmas venue in London.
Following this success, the team created the Beach Bar for the same area creating the ideal summer venue complete with sand and a jet ski. Once again, this idea was unique in London and has become more popular each year with record figures.
With the Log Cabin/Garden Terrace just next door and a function room with DJ and dance floor, we can welcome up to 200 guests to the Ski Lodge and Beach Bar.
Between these seasons, the Garden Terrace becomes Mix It, a cocktail bar where guests become the bartender and create their own cocktails.
Each year, with new additions and exciting staff promotional activity including travelling through London dressed in ski-suits or with a surf-board, the pop up experiences continue to grow!
The Royal Horticultural Halls
At the Royal Horticultural Halls anything goes with 200 events each year comprising a cornucopia of productions.
Since 1904 the public have thronged to The Lindley and The Lawrence Halls in Westminster for business and recreational events. From the lavish and creative to the functional and formal. Slicing up the spaces, using them uninterruptedly, or both Halls together, their versatility is second to none.
Each week can contain seven completely different kinds of events using a mix of in-house expertise and production interlinked with trusted suppliers to deliver a seamless event. The team works closely with clients ensuring dreams become reality, utilising both budget and space to best effect, and exceeding expectations.
Organisers love the spaces and relish in creating wonderful productions for guests to explore from fashion houses to conferences or car auctions.
Whether it’s a full-scale house with removable roof for a fashion show or a greenhouse suspended from the ceiling, a small and intimate dinner or exhibition for up to 2,000 guests, it can all be done in the Halls.
Long standing clients of over 31 years bear testament to the service and professionalism staff deliver; even Winston Churchill and President Obama were impressed.
