The City’s newest events venue

By Triggerfish

An exclusive new venue is coming to London, The Grubstreet Author on Milton Street in the heart of Moorgate, is a collection of three luxuriously designed spaces, operated by the team behind The Brewery.


The City’s newest events venue

Occupying a previously forgotten and derelict part of the original Whitbread Brewery, the underground venue will fulfil the need for private dining and intimate events in the City. Comprising three striking rooms, each with their own history and story to tell, The Grubstreet Author is a modern events hub perfectly suited to private parties and screenings for up to 70 guests.

With a dedicated private entrance on Milton Street, previously known as Grub Street, the venue takes its name from the bohemian area best known for publishing houses, poets and ‘hack writers’ during the 18th Century. The venue has been given new purpose with a contemporary design approach, featuring:

–         The Cutting Room; a fully functioning cinema auditorium for 48 people. Restored to its former glory and enhanced with the latest signature lighting technology, surround sound and tiered red velvet cinema seating, the space creates a quirky and elegant setting.

–         The Sample Room; the former beer sampling area of the original brewery is a contemporary reception area for up to 70 to get the creative juices flowing. A metallic bar with glowing neon quill, bold herringbone floor and luxurious furnishings will become a feature for cocktail receptions and pre-dinner drinks.

–         The Pasteur Room; named after the original room in The Brewery for beer fermenting, the stunning tiled roof and commanding burnt iron chandelier is designed for private dining for up to 70. The Pasteur Room can be used in conjunction with The Sample Room to create a separate reception space to host larger standing events.

Simon Lockwood, creative director at The Brewery commented, “We’ve created The Grubstreet Author with design and heritage at the forefront. The venue will offer guests a space that not only looks beautiful, but which represents a culturally fascinating period of London’s rich history. This is a new era for the whole team and we can’t wait for our guests to see the space and be part of the exciting future for The Brewery and its venues.”

No matter the event, if it’s a private dining evening, a high-end private party or an intimate wedding reception, The Grubstreet Author is an inspiring and luxurious venue to cater for a variety of occasions.
