The perfect get together

With many drinks reception venues in London, it can be difficult to know which one is right for you. From indoor to outdoor, modern to traditional, we try and make it as easy as possible to make your decision for a memorable networking occasion.

Spaces – Our three striking reception rooms, Herringham HallTuke Common Room and the Knapp Gallery make for the perfect drinks reception venue each in their own right. From grand, wooden panelling, to ever-changing art exhibitions adorning the surroundings, each of the hireable spaces acts as a canvas for both stand-alone events, or breakout networking spaces as part of your existing event at Regent’s.

It doesn’t get much more special in the summer months than a reception on our beautiful York Lawns or in our hidden Secret Garden. Between June and September, our lush gardens are host to an elegant, ivory marquee which can be used for eating, drinking, dancing and general merriment.

Entertainment – For a drinks reception on the York Lawns, organisers can really let their imaginations run wild! Do you want your guests to go on a treasure hunt? No problem. Play on an adult bouncy castle? Leave it with us. Spend the afternoon playing football or softball? Consider it done. Equally, if you’d rather go for a more understated choice of a string quartet and croquet match to accompany your drinks, the charm of the established gardens offers the perfect backdrop.

Drinks reception packages

Getting down to business, the key ingredient to hosting the ultimate drinks reception has got to be the drinks. Working with our in-house caterer, Vacherin, we are delighted to offer an extensive food and drinks menu with dedicated packages or bespoke, tailored alternatives designed to tantalise the taste-buds of guests.

Cheese and wine: A one-hour package is available for receptions, offering a selection of cheeses, biscuits, chutney, fruit, celery, house wine, mineral water and juices for just £22.50 per guest.

Canapés and drinks: For a minimum of 20 guests, we offer a one-hour package including two types of delectable canapés and two selected nibbles, along with unlimited drinks for as little as £26 per guest.

"I just wanted to thank you so much for all you did to make this such a special day. The venue location is superb and the organisation and attention to detail, second to none."
Orbis Investment Advisory Ltd
"Recently, Bi-Aura® International held an Introductory Experience and a CPD event at Regent’s University in October 2020, and it was very clear to us upon our arrival that the venue had everything in place to stay as safe as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic: staff wore masks, the hallways were clearly marked with one way systems and the meeting room layout made complying with social distancing very easy. We return time after time as the whole team does their utmost to ensure that we all enjoy the experience, and would like to thank the whole Regent’s University Conferencing Team for their support with event planning during these ever-changing times. Our special thanks go to Valentina for her attention to detail and determination to make our events a success, and for going out of her way to ensure that we are well looked after throughout. We will make sure to host our future events at Regent’s University, and look forward to coming back soon."

"Words cannot express how grateful we are for the effort you all made to make our wedding such a success. Everything – the organisation, the food the wine, the layout, the table settings – was exactly what we wanted and SO SO good! Thank-you all for working so hard to give us the perfect day and for doing it all with a smile."
