While we are very much a walk-on space offering free entry 99% of the time, we hire out sections of the vessel for live music and events. Our most popular option, the lower deck, may be privately hired for events until 1am. It comfortably accommodates 80, although you may invite more as access is available to the whole boat. It offers high ceilings & fantastic views of Parliament while giving you control of the music. Other options include tables for groups, the outdoor West Deck or Stage & whole boat hire. Prices range from a £20 deposit-£195 (for the evening) for tables & lower deck hire to a £4k-14k minimum spend for a combination of an indoor & outdoor deck or whole boat hire. We offer free hire for charities & live music (subject to t’s & c’s).
We are very grateful to feature in a number of awards, publications and media, including: The Apprentice; Secret London; Frank Skinner’s best discoveries (Evening Standard); Top 8 floating bars around the world (Afar Magazine); Top 10 Summer Bars in Europe (Spotted by Locals); Top 3 (global) floating cocktail bars (Virtuoso); a book – 111 London Pubs and Bars that you shouldn’t miss; London’s top floating bars (The Londonist); 5 Ways to enjoy the Thames that Londoners don’t know about (the Telegraph); 5 London music venues that could get you to Nashville (Time Out); London’s Top 5 Bars on The Thames (London Revealed) & a finalist at The London Venue Awards to name a select few.
We are lucky enough to have hosted some amazing bands that include Bastille, Carter USM, Allessi’s Ark, Local Natives, Big Deal, Deap Valley, The Leisure Society, Euros Childs, Grace Petrie, Matthew & Me, Hidden Charms, To Kill a King, Tankus the Henge & Matt McHugh, to name a few. We have hosted film shootings, Brit Awards after-parties, food festivals, music festivals, wine festivals & product launches.
We are also involved in sustainable projects and have created a Floating Marsh to encourage biodiversity and support the return of wildlife. We are home to nesting ducks, cormorants, seals and the other wildlife that makes us and our shores their home. We have an interest in carbon capture and storage using Tamesis as a demonstration model to install a photobioreactor.
