Downstairs at Carousel


Vast and versatile with an industrial, warehouse-style finish. Tailor made for large-scale events, our vast and versatile Downstairs space is characterised by its Shoreditch feel - think high ceilings, polished concrete flooring and moody lighting. Kitted out with its own professional kitchen, flexible lighting rig, high-spec AV equipment, pop-up bar, WCs, and room for 180 standing, it's the ideal hire space for private parties and basement banquets. You’ll be hard pressed to find a venue like it this side of Liverpool Street. 

Seasonal, locally sourced and above all delicious, we’ve built our reputation on the food and drink we serve at Carousel. Head chef Ollie Templeton (ex-Moro) loves to get creative. The result? Imaginative, restaurant-quality food, created with your event in mind. Add to that bespoke wines chosen by our sommelier Matt Varona and cocktails designed by our in-house mixologists and you have a rounded offering that’s all about providing an experience to remember (depending on how many Negronis you get through).

Ever heard of “Shuttlecock-Inc” our award-winning in-house production team? Shuttlecock Inc has a background in some of London's most creative pop-ups, parties and events, artfully combining flavour, design performance and music to create truly extraordinary experiences. That means art direction and set design, AV and lighting, costumes, props, flowers, table dressing, music, actors, performers... and so much more...
