One Of London’s Most Elegant Venues For Dinners And Receptions

Looking for the perfect venue for that all-important dinner or drinks reception? Prepare to impress your guests as you welcome them to OXO2, one of London’s most elegant venues for both private and corporate parties.

Within the venue you’ll find two gallery-style event spaces, which can be used together or separately depending on the size of your event and numbers. Both rooms benefit from understated interior design, with bright white walls, wooden floors and huge windows from which to enjoy inspiring views of the capital.

With two separate, interlinked event spaces, OXO2 has fantastic opportunities for private dinner events. Welcome your guests with a drinks reception in one room, where attendees can enjoy canapés provided by our in-house caterer. Following drinks you could create a ‘big reveal’ – opening the doors to the second space, which will be set up for dinner.


Our caterer’s Create offer both seasonal menu packages and the option to design your own bespoke menu, with the help of their creative menu designers. Create prides themselves on their ability to carefully source the best of British seasonal ingredients for dinners at OXO2. Big, bold flavour combinations are used to dramatic effect, with stunning presentation setting it off.


Whilst seated dinners are always a popular option, you could also consider other catering options, such as bowl food or food stalls, which can be incorporated into dinners. Food stalls can range from the traditional to the unique, and can be themed according to your event. They make the perfect addition to your selection of starters, and are a great way to begin the meal and enable guests to get to know on another.


One of OXO2’s greatest strengths is its flexibility – the venue is ideal for private and corporate parties requiring branding or theming as it is a total blank canvas. Easily transform the space to suit your own colour scheme with intelligent lighting, or go a step further and add your own event theming throughout the venue. Past parties have seen the space transport guests to other worlds, from a secret garden complete with deck chairs and table tennis to Willy Wonka’s candy store.

OXO2 also makes an exquisite setting for summer parties. The bright, light event spaces are perfectly suited to entertaining throughout the summer months. Invite guests to enjoy Pimm’s and canapés at this South Bank venue and feast their eyes on show-stopping views of London in the height of summer. Summer party packages are available; these include event management, venue hire, catering, staffing, drinks packages and much more. Just give us a call on 020 7378 2950 to find out more.

Summer parties can also make use of our dry hire options, which allow you to hire the space only, so you can really make the venue your own. Add your own lighting, theming, drinks options and choose a bespoke menu from our in-house caterer. Then relax and enjoy the party!


Floor to ceiling windows frame views of the capital, adding an extra dimension to your event décor. By day the room is flooded with natural light, but as the sun sets guests will enjoy the bright lights of the capital, as they raise a toast and party the night away. Enjoy impressive views of London and make use of our balcony, which is accessible from both rooms, for those all-important photo opportunities.


Whether you require a seven-course tasting menu for 20 private guests, a corporate dinner for 100 or food stalls for 485, our experienced team are determined to exceed your expectations. Give us a call on 020 7378 2950 to find out more about hosting your next dinner at OXO2, we’d be delighted to show you around.

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for helping us have the most amazing wedding day. We loved every minute. The food was fab and the venue was beautiful. Everyone was raving about it and said how great it all was. Thank you for all your hard work and I will definitely be recommending OXO2 to everyone.

Another successful event at OXO2 – thank you very much!

Tourism Whistler – 2018

The event on Tuesday was perfect! I think everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Your team were great!

Mollie and Ollie – 2018

We know we wanted a London wedding and looked at a lot of venues, we came across OXO2 online and luckily there was a preview event coming up so we went along to have a look. We instantly loved the space and the views over London and knew this would be the venue! The events team were so helpful in any questions we had and made the whole process a lot easier from start to finish. No question or job was too big or too small and took out a lot of stress. The day itself went exactly to plan and so smoothly, the food was amazing and all our guests commented on this, the staff all so friendly and welcoming and felt part of the day while making sure everyone was looked after and always had a drink! We cannot thank you enough to the whole team at OXO2 and anyone thinking of this venue should defiantly check it out!

Beth and Tim – 2014

I just wanted to say massive thanks to both Nicola and Miryam for their amazing support throughout the wedding planning and on the day and night. They were both lovely, always gave great advice, were calm and had a calming effect on us at all times. We felt reassured throughout and their competence and confidence was hugely reassuring.

South London Cares – 2018

The Oxo Tower is an iconic venue in the centre of the city, and to be able to host our annual fundraising dinner there really elevated the event and made the evening extra special for our guests. And when it came to planning and executing our dinner, Lily and the staff at the OXO2 didn’t disappoint. Their care, attention to detail and friendly, flexible approach from start to finish made this a dream venue to work with. We can’t recommend them highly enough. We came for the venue, but we’d come back because of the staff.

Decanter – 2018

Thanks very much, it was a fantastic day, you and the rest of the OXO2 team were brilliant!

Tangle Teezer – 2018

Thank you for all your help, the feedback was really positive!

Laura and Mark 2018

We had a perfect day. A particular thanks to you for all your hard work in bringing it together for us. Everything fell right into place, and we appreciate all the effort you put into accommodating everything we wanted, and the attentiveness to us on the day.

Natalie and Matt – 2017

Everything was really easy to plan, harriet was super helpful with ideas and suggestions, and we love how it all came together!

Mark & Will – 2016

Our guests have said the day was ‘perfect’, ‘so personal’ and ‘incredibly well organised’ and the food on the day was out of this world. To cook that brilliantly for 180 people takes real skill and I take my hat off to the chef.

Efficio Consulting – 2018

The event went really well, all of the guests loved the venue and your team were very helpful throughout the evening!
