The Hop Exchange
With a convenient Bankside location, The Hop Exchange is a Grade II listed building which once served as the main centre for hop trading when this trendy area was the centre of London’s brewing industry. It first opened in 1868 but has recently undergone a huge refurbishment to offer versatile office space to a range of businesses and a stunning venue for conferences, fashion shows, product launches, awards presentations, receptions, and banquets.
The impressive central atrium is a beautiful, 288 square metre space with original architecture and is offered as a blank canvas for evening hire only to suit a multitude of corporate events. The roof is entirely of glass so is flooded with natural daylight, and on those lighter evenings your guests can gather beneath clear blue skies or catch the colours of breathtaking city sunsets; in the winter months, the atrium sits beneath a dark sky studded with stars – quite a talking point. Hire is from 18.45 – 23.30, with a maximum capacity for theatre style conferences for 300 delegates, a glittering reception for 400, or a sparkling gala dinner for 240 guests.
The Hop Exchange works with reputed partners to cover all aspects of event management, including state of the art audiovisual equipment, specialist lighting, and entertainment. The Atrium can be dressed to a theme, or to your specific requirements; a dance floor can be installed, along with a stage and bars. A useful loading bay is situated to the rear of building.
The venue also works closely with renowned professional caterers who offer a fantastic range of menus from delicious canapes and bowl food to delectable 5 course dinners, all created using the freshest ingredients, sourced as locally as possibly.
The Hop Exchange can be found just a five-minute stroll from London Bridge rail station, and one minute from the nearest underground station. There is an NCP car park a mere two minutes’ walk away.
