Unknown by many, this secret outdoor venue hire is hidden within Southwark's Flat Iron Square. The live music spot may be a snug affair but Omeara's a real charmer for any drinks bash and is perfectly placed for a meal afterwards or if you want to keep the party going post-cocktails. 

Like something out of a children's story, The Rookery Cafe is an adorable spot only yards away from Streatham Common. Suited for those looking for an intimate celebration, the venue's friendly staff and chefs will rustle up all your food and drinks so you can sit back and enjoy yourself.
