What is a cocktail party at SEA LIFE London Aquarium?
A classic three hour network event ideal for client parties where talking business is key. The SEA LIFE London Aquarium can hold 50-750 guests for this type of event. The package includes occasional seating with drop tables for glasses and colour controllable lighting and screens for branding.
Typically, a range of hot and cold bite sized canapés are served at this type of event. If you would like to offer your guests a more substantial food service we can offer a selection of both canapés and bowl food, finishing with dessert canapés as the event draws to a close.
The classic cocktail party package includes atmospheric background music, however if you wanted to enhance the event, why not add a Lounge DJ?
