Summer Parties

Summer parties need an impressive outdoor space and an equally fabulous indoor option. The HAC has both. Set within the HAC estate, our large venues enjoy an unrivalled position in the heart of the City of London, just a few minutes’ walk from Moorgate and Old Street tube stations. This year’s theme is The Secret Garden; click here to download our package brochure for details.

The Spaces

Our sun terrace is a spectacular party venue. It boasts views over the lush green lawns of the Artillery Garden and has a unique City skyline backdrop. The space can host up to 690 drinks reception guests and is hired in conjunction with the Prince Consort Rooms, a contemporary event space separated from the terrace by a pretty courtyard.

Food and Drink

Organisers can chose from one of five barbecue menus: The Orchid, Cactus Grill, The British Summer Selection, The Hog Roast Package and Birds of Paradise. Take a look at all the dishes available here. Our fabulous in-house caterer, Searcys, is also happy to create bespoke menus if you have something specific in mind.

Games and Entertainment

There’s plenty of space in the courtyard to set up garden games like Jenga, giant Connect Four, table tennis and skittles. These always prove hugely popular with guests and work as fabulous ice breakers. For dancing later on, the Prince Consort Rooms is the perfect space. The room has an in-built lighting system which gives you complete control over the look and feel of your party, plus there’s a separate space which works brilliantly as a bar.


Your booking will include hire of the terrace, courtyard and Prince Consort Rooms from 6-11pm. You’ll also get a fully-staffed cloakroom, four-hours of unlimited beer, wine and soft drinks and security. Prices start at £75pp and there are lots of extras you can add on, including DJs, cocktails and live acoustic music.
