London's Boutique Event Space

Testimonials

" To celebrate the release of Breaking Bad's fourth season on DVD earlier this month - as well the imminent arrival of Season 5 on Netflix - central London saw a very special event take place this week. Held in the swish Soho Gallery, the event saw an exhibit of Breaking Bad-inspired art going on display for one night only.

For the lucky fans in attendance it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet their heroes, and thankfully, they didn't disappoint. Cranston and Paul were happy to stop and chat, and never once expressed annoyance at the barrage of flashing camera-phones pointing their way. They were intent on making sure the fans had a great time - and they certainly succeeded.

Breaking Bad is arguably the best TV show on the planet at the moment - and Cranston and Paul arguably the best two actors - and you can relive their thrilling performances in the incredible first part of Season 5 when it debuts on Netflix on November 1st."

" Hi Rene,

The event venue was perfect for our Maybelline New York launch. We were launching four brand new products from the Eye category and we wanted somewhere that would allow us to really show-off our brand identity for 2009. The gallery allowed us to have a blank canvas and present our brand in a New York fashion. We felt that the gallery represented an on-trend, cultural New York style apartment space. The service was extremely welcoming and anything we wanted was not turned down. We were allowed to express ourselves whilst also being supported by the Gallery's Manager. We would definitely think of having another event here in the future."

" The Gallery Soho was one of a long list of choices for a possible venue for our two-month event. In the end we chose it based not only on its excellent location but also the facilities it offered and I couldn't be more pleased with the results. The management were flexible on every front, able to provide for us what we needed whether it was a 10-man community event for gamers on one day and then a 200-man party with attractive, friendly bar staff and music the next. The venue itself is structured well enough to cater for any number of situations, has enough private space to have been able to accomodate all of our needs and was staffed by the friendly, professional and extremely capable Rene. I would recommend The Gallery Soho to anyone else in a heartbeat."

" EA worked closely with The Gallery Soho to create an atmospheric environment for the game launch of Battleforge. The venue space was perfect and all elements were flexible to our needs. A special thank you to the staff at the event who offered their support with technical issues and set-up and striking of the venue. It is refreshing to work with venue management who have a can do attitude where literally anything is possible to achieve."

"The Gallery Soho is the perfect venue, the space is light and airy and easily accessible in the heart of W1. The wooden floors and white walls allow for any style of creative direction and the vast space across the two floors plus the bar area mean the venue is truly flexible.

In addition to this, working with Venue Manager Rene was such a great experience. Not only was Rene friendly, efficient and professional, he also went above and beyond to ensure that our event was a success to wish we were most grateful for."

" I hope this finds you well! We hosted our launch event at Gallery Soho last Thursday, and I'd just like to say that it was a massive success, so thanks for that. The venue was spotless when I arrived, and was the perfect environment for the launch.

I'd particularly like to congratulate Rene on all the hard work he put in, as it really wouldn't have been possible without him. I was hugely impressed with his attitude. Having booked a number of venues for events over the years, I was bowled over with his drive and enthusiasm, before, during, and after the event. Whether communicating with our suppliers, stocking the fridges up, and even helping with hanging the artwork, he was a great help. He went above and beyond the call of duty for us, and managed to keep his cool under a lot of pressure, even refusing a tip from myself at the end of the night.

Thanks very much, I certainly plan to use Gallery Soho for an agency party again."

Kind Regards

" The Gallery was a fantastic venue for our event. We were given a private gallery which we could decorate as we saw fit - very useful as we had some rather unusual requirements. Facilities were top notch and on-the-day support provided by Rene was just what we needed. We'll definitely look to use this place again."

" In June 2009 in had my first solo show which consisted of 27 paintings on two floors of The Gallery Soho. It was a nail-biting experience and there was a lot of pressure which had me going mad at times. I was extremely fortunate to have Rene on my team. He went way beyond his duties as the gallery manager, meeting me at 6am or 10pm if something urgent needed doing, helping me lug huge paintings up and down stairs and checking in all the time to see if I was ok. He became a friend who I feel really wanted the best possible outcome for the show rather than just getting the job done before moving onto the next one. He was also very flexible - switching dates around and allowing me to take a different floor at the last minute because I needed more space, even though it certainly made his life more difficult. I knew I could delegate to Rene re the catering and that the job would be done without me having to check up on him. The people who helped on the night were equally friendly and dependable.

Indeed, the community feel of this 4 story building, which includes the famous Claire de Rouen bookshop and Soho Original Books, means that there is a constant buzz and friendly faces everywhere.

The gallery space itself is a fantastic opportunity to show paintings - it is bright and spacious and has all the infrastructure to display art. Not only is the gallery in the heart of Soho, which means people are continuously coming in off the street but, being bang in central London with the tube just a couple of minute away, it is very accessible for people coming from all ends of London.

I am delighted with how the show went. I had many sleepless nights in the run-up but there would have been plenty more had I not received so much support and help from everyone involved. Really, I owe a number of people a huge THANK YOU!"

" Rene

What can I say? You have been an absolute star! As you know we have just finished an event at a 5 star hotel where we expected a 5 star service. With a blank space venue, you generally expect this less so. However, not only did you deliver a 5 star service, your flexibility and helpful attitude has made an event which was difficult in its run-up, run perfectly yesterday. Both client and we at BEYOND were delighted and we will certainly be looking for an opportunity to run another event at Gallery Soho as soon as we can."

"Haymarket Publishing and Management Today were incredibly happy with The Gallery, Soho as a location for their prestigious 35 Under 35 Annual List Party. As a bright, spacious and incredibly well presented space, the venue was perfect for our esteemed yet youthful event. I cannot praise Rene enough - he was the perfect venue manager - nothing was too difficult for him and his team and they provided invaluable help throughout the planning process and on the night. The event was a huge success, received fabulous press, and the venue looked brilliant. We would readily recommend The Gallery to anyone considering an event in the future."

" We chose the Gallery Soho for the launch of new luxury brand Benney Watches for its great location and because it offered a blank canvas onto which we could create a really bespoke event. We worked closely with the management team, who were able to accommodate all our ideas and were flexible with how we used the space. The catering was excellent and the staff very professional and friendly. All our guests commented on the quality, taste and presentation of the food, and on how great the venue was. We'll definitely be coming back."

" Working with Rene at The Gallery Soho was an absolute pleasure. From initial planning and site visits to the clearing up afterwards Rene was there every step of the way, offering help, advice, and practical support, from bespoke lighting and design to sound systems, with a real eye for detail & surpassing expectations at every stage. Of the many venues in which we have worked The Gallery Soho was one of the most flexible and accommodating - a 'can do' attitude at every stage, which was key to the delivery of an outstanding event. With clean, flexible spaces, a superb central location and informed, experienced & helpful management the Gallery Soho is real find!"

" Our Annual Trade Wine Tasting at the Soho Gallery on Tuesday 6th September 2011 was a huge success. We had a record turnout and despite the rain and gale force winds outside, the sun was shining inside!

The Soho Gallery is perfect for an event such as our wine tasting; light, airy, spacious, clean and fantastically located. Rene was instrumental in making our event the success it was. From the onset he was incredibly helpful, we could not have done it without him. Rene is a breath of fresh air, we are very grateful for his charisma, charm and dynamism - we would definitely consider using the gallery again for future events. Thank you very much."

" The Gallery was an even better venue this year than last as we had full reign of the ground floor including the window display which was viewable from street level - having people taking photos and looking at our brand from the street was really exciting. Rene and his team were a pleasure to work with once again- extremely helpful and friendly. We will surely be using the venue again as it suits our needs perfectly and would strongly recommend it to anyone."

" London venue spaces for small scale media launches are hard to find. Great spaces that meet your every need are impossible to find but Gallery Soho meets those needs with ease in terms of being centrally located for London media, close to a main tube station, available floor space, natural light, power, catering, ease of access and supportive venue management. We will definitely be returning for future shows as the feedback from our AW09 press launch was extremely positive and that could not have been achieved without the best canvas to work from!"
