There’s certainly no shortage of warehouses out east, and it’s no wonder, given east London’s industrial past. The white-washed studios and exposed brick spaces you see today were once the tanneries, breweries and factories of industrial London. And with more and more people looking to hire unusual, multi-functional venues for meetings, conferences, and parties, there’s no sign of these urban spaces going out of style.
These open, unique spaces are the ideal blank canvases for your next event. They even feature dry hire, so there are no restraints on external catering. Read on for eight of the most in-demand warehouses available for private hire in east London.

This striking space is set within a converted railway arch in trendy Shoreditch.

If you’re after an open-plan venue boasting loads of natural light, then Lumiére London is the space for you. The aptly named White Loft provides the ultimate blank canvas for your event, while the Victorian Loft’s bohemian mix of vintage furniture and versatile textures makes it a cosy and comfortable alternative.
While slightly less of a blank canvas space than some of our other selections, The Warehouse offers an excellent wide-open dining space. Fully equipped with wooden bench tables, this Whitechapel-based warehouse is the perfect spot for corporate events and product launches.
Well-known MOTEL has hosted its fair share of high-fashion events. The space has been home to photoshoots for Louis Vuitton, Dior, Elie Saab, GQ, and Vanity Fair to name just a few. MOTEL’s ample natural light and high brick ceilings make it a perfect option for daytime events. They’ve also got capacity for 150 standing, so there’s no shortage of space at this venue.

We couldn’t talk about ultimate warehouse venues for hire without mentioning Hawker House. The epic 2,000 – 3,000 capacity warehouse is available to hire from Street Feast. With nine bars, twelve street food traders and optional pool and beer pong tables. This previously derelict warehouse is a one-stop-shop for a fantastic event. If you’re looking for something a bit more low-key there’s also the option of hiring some of the smaller spaces within Hawker House separately.
We’re heading back to the railway arches for another stunning space. Shoreditch Studios is slightly more ‘rough around the edges’ than some of our other arches. But what it lacks in polish it makes up for in authenticity. Expect vintage furniture and original features galore – perfect for a shabby-chic style event. Holding up to 350 guests standing. Shoreditch Studios is a great option for art exhibitions, conferences, fashion shows, or corporate functions.
