Why The Lighterman Should be Your New Go-To for Corporate Parties: From Summer to Christmas

After the last couple of years, we’re all in need of a good party. So, we’ve made it our mission to find the perfect corporate party venue for your upcoming celebrations: The Lighterman!

Whether it’s a summer party or an office Christmas party, this gorgeous canal-side pub, dining room and bar will be right up your street. Just around the corner from King’s Cross and boasting stunning vistas and (arguably even more stunning!) food, it should be pretty clear why this brand new venue should become your go-to. But just in case, here are a few reasons.

A very lovely view

First things first, The Lighterman is situated right on the towpath of the tranquil Regent’s Canal. That means stunning waterside views from every nook, cranny and wraparound terrace. Just picture sipping Buck’s Fizz this summer on the Canalside Terrace, or tucking into your Christmas dinner at the Ground Floor Long Table as you watch beautiful barges bobbing along the water in front of you!

But that’s not all. As well as idyllic watery views reminiscent of The Wind in the Willows, you’ll get to enjoy panoramic vistas over King’s Cross. Which brings us onto…


A practically perfect location

The Lighterman’s location may be like something out of a picture book, but it’s also incredibly practical. That’s right, this incredible venue is situated on Granary Square, less than a 5 minutes’ walk from King’s Cross!

Arguably the best-connected part of London, your guests will have easy access to mainline trains from both King’s Cross and St Pancras stations, plus a choice of six tube lines from King’s Cross St Pancras underground! So, your party will be easy for guests to reach no matter where they’re coming from – be it Greater London, the wider UK or even internationally!


Food is the only real way to a guest’s heart, so you’ll be pleased to hear that The Lighterman has a menu to die for. We’re talking modern seasonal British dishes that are guaranteed to send mouths watering.

Whether you’re after a sophisticated three-course dinner or a drinks and canapés reception, you won’t be disappointed. The Lighterman’s talented chefs and events team will help you to plan the ideal dining experience for your corporate party.


Delightful décor

We know, we know, The Lighterman is sounding pretty great already. And we haven’t even mentioned the gorgeous interiors yet!

Boasting characterful natural materials, lovely lighting and a plethora of plants, The Lighterman has a relaxed yet elegant vibe that’s ideal for any corporate party. And of course, floor-to-ceiling glass walls do a great job at flooding this waterside venue with natural light and bringing the outside in – really putting those valuable vistas centre stage!


Fabulously flexible

Finally, The Lighterman is a super versatile venue that’s simply made for any corporate occasion, whether you have 20 or 100 guests. Planning a last-minute summer party? You’ll love the Canalside Bar & Terrace – situated right on the towpath, it’s an unparalleled spot to sip mojitos in the sun!

On the lookout for a Christmas party venue? We bet the First Floor Dining Room will tickle your fancy – this versatile space is ideal for relaxed Christmas dinners and buzzy festive drinks receptions alike. Oh, and its wraparound terrace is ideal for admiring those magical city lights!


As you can see, The Lighterman ticks every box you could possibly put on your wishlist and more – astounding views, a top-notch location, scrumptious food, a relaxed yet sophisticated setting… we could go on! Plus, it’s brand new so the chances are your guests haven’t yet experienced this memorable venue, leaving you perfectly placed to wow them with your event.
