A unique event space in London for evening parties

Hidden beneath the Globe theatre is the sensational Underglobe, a venue hire with all the drama you could wish for. We will transform this blank canvas into a glittering, glamorous, secret space to capture the theatre of your event.

Perfect for gala dinners, awards ceremonies, cocktail receptions and lavish parties, this atmospheric space can readily accommodate events of up to 350 guests seated, or 450 standing. Using chic partitions, we can also divide the room into smaller sections, making it ideal for more intimate gatherings.

Discover this cool event space under London’s iconic Globe theatre

Leaving bustling Bankside behind, your guests will descend through a private riverside entrance into the magical, theatrical world of the Underglobe. At the mezzanine, the ideal spot for welcome drinks, they will pause to take in the beautifully decorated room below. From here, a sweeping staircase leads to the heart of the space with its full-sized, model oak tree and soaring ceiling.

A high tech venue that delivers theatre quality sound and lighting

Our in-house production partners will work with you to design a theme to suit your event. With access to an enviable theatrical prop box and outstanding, fully integrated sound, lighting and projection, your Underglobe will be dressed to impress.

Party the night away with our late night licence

As standard, your event will be licensed to 1am, and we can apply to extend this if you want to party on into the small hours.
