Summer Parties At Searcys21 April 2021
As the world of parties and events opens back up across the UK this summer, things are looking brighter and better than ever for celebrations across Searcys’ iconic British venues. After a year of missing celebrations with friends and colleagues, nothing can ever substitute those face-to-face meet-ups. Following the Government’s guidelines for steps out of lockdown, our summer parties will be all about warm-hearted welcomes, catching up with old friends and savouring being together in person.
Our summer parties will be all about warm-hearted welcomes, sophisticated glasses of Champagne, seasonal menus, and going that extra mile to deliver indulgent moments which shouldn’t just be saved for special occasions. After a year of restrictions hitting the events world, the personal touch which is so central to Searcys has never been more important.
Whether it’s an al-fresco afternoon tea, a rooftop glass of fizz or a lavish banquet to celebrate being together once more, Searcys can help create those special moments this summer that’ll last a lifetime.
ST PANCRAS BRASSERIE AND CHAMPAGNE BAR
A true hidden gem for events, St Pancras Brasserie and Champagne Bar is located above the hustle and bustle of the historic train station.

The Champagne Bar is the longest in Europe and can host up to 400 guests standing up. The Grand Terrace is directly under the iconic Victorian arches of the station, overlooking Tracey Emin’s famous neon installation ‘I want my time with you.’
With old station clocks and vintage private booths, St Pancras Brasserie by Searcys whisks guests back to the golden age of travel while the station buzzes beneath. Our team can set up Champagne fountains and serve colourful cocktails, shared platters and nibbles for summer parties in the airy venue.
