Camm & Hooper to launch new City of London events venue

Iconic events and hospitality company, Camm & Hooper has signed a 23-year lease for a new venue, ‘South Place Society’, in Moorgate, City of London.

The venue will offer space for public, corporate and private events in the heart of London’s thriving business centre, a five-minute walk from Liverpool Street station.

South Place Society is Camm & Hooper’s seventh addition to its expanding portfolio of London venues and will open this September.

The group’s ‘Booze Lab’, the space in which all Camm & Hooper’s bespoke cocktails are concocted by Chief Booze Engineer Patrick Hobbs, is moving to the Moorgate venue’s ground floor and will coincide with the launch of new booze experiences, tasting packages and infusion making classes.

The downstairs space at South Place Society can be hired for exclusive drinks receptions and private dinner functions.

A range of bespoke event menus have been carefully curated by executive head chef Ronnie Murray, formerly of Hix Restaurants, and his team of 20 chefs.

Camm & Hooper’s new site was the original home of the South Place Ethical Society, the only remaining ethical society in the UK, from 1793. The basement event space has room for 180 chairs or 260 standing guests.

Debra Ward, Managing Director for Camm & Hooper, said, “We are absolutely thrilled to launch our next venue in the City, which features a fantastic industrial space for bespoke parties and corporate functions.

'We’re particularly excited to be moving the Booze Lab. This gives us a unique opportunity to offer guests an unrivalled range of creative drinks and immersive experiences.”
