The Victorian Bath House is a hidden gem nestled in the heart of London’s bustling City. Its majestic architecture has stood the test of time, as it has undergone numerous transformations over the centuries. From its humble beginnings as Turkish Baths to a period as a pizzeria, bar, and nightclub, this Grade II listed wonder boasts a captivating history as diverse as the city it calls home.

During the late 1800s, London experienced rapid population growth, creating a demand for more significant hygiene facilities. To address this need, the Baths and Washhouses Act of 1846 encouraged the construction of public baths and washhouses. However, the city’s elite demanded more upscale options, leading to the rise of Turkish bathhouses. By the time the Victorian Bath House opened in 1895, over 100 such establishments were thriving in the city.

The Victorian Bath House was initially designed as an opulent underground haven for relaxation and cleanliness, catering to the city’s wealthy and elite. Its striking design was the brainchild of Architect G. Harold Elphick and financed by Victorian entrepreneur James Forde Neville and his brother Henry. Positioned adjacent to Liverpool Street Station, the Stock Exchange, and Lloyds, the establishment impressed both contemporary journals and guests who praised its remarkable décor and efficient use of space.

Despite its lengthy and storied history, the Victorian Bath House has emerged from various trials and tribulations as a resilient and iconic structure. It endured two World Wars, IRA attacks, and redevelopment projects, solidifying its place in the city’s collective memory.

In 2015, Camm and Hooper undertook an ambitious restoration and refurbishment of the Victorian Bath House in collaboration with the renowned designer Russell Sage. This mission aimed to breathe new life into the historic site while maintaining its original allure. The designers’ meticulous restorative journey saw them use authentic materials, including Dunhill Tiles, to rejuvenate the venue’s opulent ambiance. They also incorporated contemporary touches such as Champagne bells, a Decanter wall, and a Champagne bath, lending modern flair to this sophisticated venue.

Today, the Victorian Bath House comprises the Lounge, the Snug & bar, and the courtyard, boasting flexibility that permits it to host a vast range of events. Built to accommodate up to 150 standing guests or 90 seated, this venue is an elegant choice for intimate parties, intimate drinks receptions, and bespoke banquets. With an opulent Victorian aesthetic, this unique space oozes personality, and is an exceptional choice for hosting wedding feasts, Christmas parties, summer parties and executive meetings.

The Victorian Bath House’s rich history sets it apart as a unique and alluring event space. It transcends its former guise as a Turkish Bath, now offering an exclusive venue for guests seeking to savour its rich and storied history. Located in proximity to Liverpool Street Station, this historic masterpiece is an exclusive even space. Camm and Hooper’s dedication to preserving history while incorporating a contemporary touch has breathed new life into the Victorian Bath House, firmly establishing it as an essential destination in the City of London. Its journey from a historical Turkish Bath to a thriving modern event space is a testament to its remarkable adaptability, mirroring the dynamic spirit of the city itself.  The Victorian Bath House now stands as a must-see destination and an exceptional example of London’s rich heritage, poised to capture the imagination of all who discover it.

People like to get their parties and events booked way in advance to secure the best venues and ensure the best experience.

Our exclusive award-winning bartender, The Cocktail Guy: Rich Woods, has hand crafted a range of delicious and indulgent festive cocktails exclusively for us this season. Each menu has been carefully curated to be themed to each of our four venues: Tanner Warehouse, OXO2, Victorian Bath House and Banking Hall. We’d love to give you a sneak peak of one cocktail from each menu.

Tanner Warehouse: Retro Christmas

Tanner Warehouse offers old world charm with a contemporary look and feel. As such, ‘Retro Christmas’ is the theme for this menu. Inspired by novelty festivities and childhood memories, Rich Woods has crafted a selection of cocktails that will remind you of festive fun in years gone by, but with that unexpected contemporary twist.

Tanner Warehouse’s cocktail, ‘The Bauble’ is served in its very own glass bauble, this festive and fragrant sipper is a stirred down delight. Discover clementine infused gin and blended vermouths, meeting with cacao husk and maraschino cherry liqueur. A cocktail fit for the Christmas tree.

OXO2: Winterland

OXO2 is transforming into a winter wonderland inspired by frost, frozen and ice. Thankfully, all to be enjoyed from the warmth of the inside of this contemporary space with stunning views of the Thames. This menu will be visual delight with crystal blue colours infused throughout.

OXO2’s ‘Frost Bite’ is a blue, shimmery, spirit forward drink that evokes the cold snap of winter, with the undertones of strawberry and marzipan. A cocktail that will thaw the most frozen hearts.

Victorian Bath House: Mystical Masquerade

Victorian Bath House invites guests to descend beneath the city into a world of opulence and glamour. This Grade II listed building dating back to the 1800s is fittingly taking the theme of Mystical Masquerade. Inspired by deceptive cocktails, this menu has been crafted to intrigue and surprise.

Victorian Bath House’s ‘Pine Lemonade’ is our wintery nod to the classic spritz with notes of fresh pine and floral elderflower – served long and over ice. Pine infused gin mixed with elderflower, citrus and bubbles.

Banking Hall: Roaring Twenties

Banking Hall is an art deco dream. Steeped in heritage, discover this grand Grade II listed venue in the heart of London. To reflect the opulence of this esteemed venue, the menu here takes spiritual inspiration from prohibition era cocktails. All with a festive twist, of course.

Banking Hall’s ‘Three Wise Men’ is gold, creamy and tropical… like a Solero ice cream on Christmas day. This milky Christmas punch sees vanilla, citrus and passion fruit split with almond milk to clarify and vanilla and citrussy myrrh infused vodka blended with sherry. Served long and over ice.

Our headline cocktail: Festive Fizz

Our headline cocktail ‘Festive Fizz’ features on each of our menus. It’s our riff on the classic champagne cocktail with notes of dried fruit, citrus peel and festive goodness. We mix our house-made mice pie liqueur with the best bubbles. It’s a true festive treat.

From Proposal to Planning

We are so grateful to belong to a community of dedicated event industry experts who put their heads together to learn from one another’s interests, passions, experiences and skills. In telling the Camm & Hooper story, we’ll be interviewing some of the extraordinary people who make up our community as they provide insider knowledge, tips, and guidance into the vast and wonderful world of events.

Congratulations, you’re engaged! So, what are the next steps?

In the early stages of engagement, you may feel overwhelmed by the immediate recognition that you’re planning for one of the most memorable days in your lifetime; you’ve potentially anticipated this moment for a long time…

In the beautiful but vast world of weddings, the stress of planning may replace your excitement and leave you feeling anxious, desperately hoping things go to plan. Within the oversaturated events market, you may likely face decision fatigue and an overpowering feeling of pressure to make choices. You may well be the most organised person in the world, but you also have a full-time job and are probably not a professional event planner. Let someone else do the heavy lifting.

This week we speak to our wedding curator Ivana who answers some valuable questions essential to planning the perfect wedding. We’re here to question the belief that wedding planners are a luxury reserved for those with larger budgets. Camm & Hooper wedding specialists provide expert guidance from years of industry experience and promise to curate a unique day tailored to your taste and budget.

Q. What factors should a couple consider when choosing a wedding venue?

In the early stages, deciding whether you want a large-capacity venue or a more intimate setting is essential. Determining your capacity will help narrow down your choice of wedding venues and help identify possible locations. We have a diverse but exclusive list of iconic venues and work with you to determine which venue suits your taste, budget and personal preference. From eclectic warehouses to ornate subterranean gems, grand banking halls and contemporary riverside landmarks, our versatile collection has something for everyone, and we work with you to find a venue that suits your personality and preference.

Q. How would you assist a client who did not know what type of wedding they desired?

9/10 couples have a clear idea of what they want, but I ask couples with more vague responses to consider what a celebration surrounding their love story would look like. If they’re foodies, we start by discussing the catering options. Our executive head chef Chris Hawkins prioritises the best seasonal ingredients in his menus but also loves the challenge of infusing different palettes into refreshing, bespoke menus tailored to you and your partner’s individual tastes.

This is all part of the process of really getting to know our clients, and being inspired by their love story, personality and background. From this first meeting, we gage an understanding of how to curate a wedding that reflects you by exchanging ideas and offering our knowledge.

Q. What are the advantages of booking a wedding planner?

Having a wedding curator allows you to focus on the day rather than stress about the small stuff. To be a wedding curator, you have to really love finding the tiny but noticeable details about individuals that make all the difference in delivering unique weddings every time. We offer as much (or as little) advice should you need it and appreciate that this approach leads our clients and guests to remember our weddings for years to come. From years of working in the industry, we’ve shortlisted an expert catalogue of friends of camm and hooper who directly translate your desires into their craft, meaning you save time (and stress) trying to find the best options on the market. As a bonus, we’ve also built relationships that offer our guests amazing prices. We take responsibility when plans change and offer advice and solutions on how to adapt. By prioritising your desires and dreams, we discover how to memorialise these life experiences into events that leave our couples with lifelong memories to be cherished forever.

Q. How do you make each wedding unique?

Like I said earlier, your wedding story starts with you. As an events company, we evolved in the industry from recognising how events veered towards being repetitive and sometimes lacklustre. We have developed our values to prioritise adventure, individuality and magic. We look for what makes your relationship unique and transform this feeling into a day that truly celebrates your love story.

Q. What is your favourite wedding trend for 2023? Where do you go for inspiration?

We take inspiration from the world and people. While we love to know what others are doing, we don’t want to follow trends; we set them. Our team of extraordinary people come from diverse backgrounds and professions, enabling us to prioritise real-life experiences over market products. So, while it may be easy to find what is trending in the industry, we look to our guests to find out what’s important to them.

That being said, it’s hard to ignore the rising popularity of food stations in recent years. Our exec chef has been challenging the industry and trialling new flavours and concepts to create distinct cornucopias of flavour and imagination. Our bespoke interactive food stations and sustainable interactive canapes have been proven to be real crowd-winners for weddings and beyond.

Q. What sets apart Camm & Hooper from other planning services in London?

Our couples are assigned one single point of contact for all their requirements and needs. From the big things like venues, flowers, food, decoration, and entertainment to the more understated details like seating plans, wedding favours, something borrowed and something blue. We rely on our award-winning team to ensure the day is executed proficiently and smoothly. As an events company, we go beyond offering a venue and introduce you to our extraordinary team of infusion engineers and our renowned heart-of-house culinary specialists. The legendary Rich Woods (The Cocktail Guy) can curate a signature cocktail exclusive to you while our executive chef Chris Hawkins rustles up an aspiring cornucopia of flavour and imagination. We want to lead the way in thoughtful planning and invite you to a tasting to turn your vision into a reality, ensuring your big day is everything you dreamed it would be.

Q. What are three pieces of advice you would give to couples looking to get married this year?

1) Find a wedding curator that goes the extra mile
2) Don’t follow trends; remember what matters to you
3) Don’t be afraid to ask questions if it’s your dream to be married under a gigantic disco ball. Find the people willing to make it happen!
