Icetank London has got to be one of our favourite venues and that’s because it is a modern and contemporary blank canvas that really would suit any event or theme, which means you can really get creative! Icetank London is situated in the well-known Covent Garden area and is actually spaced out over two floors which can be filled with a maximum of 120 standing guests over both floors. The ground floor offers a built-in kitchen area which would be perfect for demonstrations, just to whip up snacks or live buffet-style cooking and has a decadent white fireplace which blazes all year round. They have a fully functioning PA system and full blackout curtains which stand from floor-to-ceiling and keep out any glare from the London night life.
We have worked with this venue on many occasions, both with their personal events team and with clients directly, and on every occasion they have wowed with their skills to outdo the rest. One of our favourite ranges of furniture to use in this event space is the LED furniture range. The white walls and ceiling reflect the light in all directions and give the furniture a blank canvas. The blackout curtains also keep out the glare of passing traffic and people, so the LED lights are not interfered with. The beautiful simplicity of this venue means you would need to hire everything if you were to hold a dinner or drinks reception, but you really can get creative (as long as it meets health and safety standards and you get permission from the venue).
Another brilliant idea for this venue is to keep it clean and put white furniture in the white modern venue. It may seem too sterile for some people but white weddings are becoming very popular and it could even be a great idea to consider holding your wedding reception in this venue, if this is the type of style you are looking for. You could even go completely monochrome using black chairs with black pads and black tablecloths with tall white flower centrepieces and white napkins. We love the fact this venue is a blank canvas as we can have some fun getting creative and coming up with some really unique ideas for wedding styling at Icetank London.
The space is perfect for taking photos or using cameras to make videos because of the perfectly white décor and the fact Icetank also has long floor-to-ceiling curtains which keep out unnecessary lighting. The lights from a camera really bounce off the walls making it the ideal lighting and location for fashion photo shoots. You could also use the fully functioning kitchen should you want to record videos with food as this venue is also perfect for that.
Not only does Icetank London offer a modern feel but the large fireplace that is often lit is a wonderfully classic addition to the space and really works brilliantly in the winter to create a warm atmosphere. If you’re having a winter wonderland Christmas party then this venue is right up your street. You can even make the space seem as if you are inside a giant igloo with the perfect choice of furniture being clear Ice Chiavari chairs with white seat pads. Another idea to really set the scene is to use tall clear vases draped in white flowers and ivy. Hey, why not add in a Christmas tree and a throne so Santa can attend and sit in his favourite place in front of the fireplace?
The possibilities are endless in this event space and that’s why it’s always a pleasure to be able to style it.
