About us

What is

Space at 61 ?

Founded in September 2016, the vision for Space at 61 was to provide a space for creative use. It is increasingly difficult to find places in London to use to trial ideas, with space at an all time premium. Think of us as "an Airbnb for business use".

To give a snap shot of a typical week in the life, the venue may be used by Artists working on their creations, supper club hosts trying out new menus, work shoppers holding interesting craft projects, families hosting gatherings, including birthday parties & baby showers & pop up retail events.  No two weeks are the same.

Owned & run by Shona Chambers, Space at 61 is a great place to make connections & meet interesting people.

Childrens Parties

What is special about Space at 61 for kids parties?

When people come to us they have often looked at community halls, pubs, and churches with the hope of finding a special place to host their childrens birthday parties. People speak about our venue as being cosy, welcoming, and feeling just right as an alternative to the above. 

A quote from a recent customer (visible on our Google My Business page)

"I hosted my daughters 1st birthday party & the space was perfect. The parking great, location nice & quiet & away from the hustle. Only a 15mins drive from Streatham. The owners were very friendly and down to earth. All in all great space. Thanks Shona."

What do we have at the venue for children?

Our childrens corner was designed by local Artist Lucy Pearson of Wonderwalls London. Most under 5s adore the play experience & thats before you even consider booking an entertainer. 

Our venue is very child friendly with step free access to the premises, great for buggies, plenty of space for buggies to park, baby change facilities, high chairs, & room to play. 

What are my options for hiring you?

We can offer hire on a venue only basis, giving you the flexibility to self cater, or a full catered party for both your little ones & adult guests. 

All our food is freshly prepared on site in our own kitchen. 

We are always grateful of customer reviews

"We had a great birthday party for our son! Shona was very helpful and went far beyond our expectations! The space is bright and lovely and the children area turned out to be very useful for our little guests .. We'll be back .. thumbs up"

"We had our son's 5th birthday party at space at 61 yesterday and it was brilliant. We had 22 kids and their parents and there was plenty of space for them to play and have lunch. The kitchen is great for preparing food, there's a play area at the back with loads of toys and tons of light throughout. Perfect."

Can you help me find my birthday party essentials?

We can recommend party entertainers, birthday cake bakers, & party supply vendors on request.
