YOUR event at counter
We would be delighted to host your dinner, reception, party, product launch, conference or other event and make it a success.
London's new heart
Welcome to Vauxhall – the gateway to South-Central London – which boasts a history of entertaining Londoners as far back as the mid-17th century. With tube services that easily link to the West End and the 24-hour weekend Victoria line means your guests are ever only 7 minutes from Oxford Circus.
Who needs a reason
We all need little reason to have a great time and special occasions come in many different forms. Here at COUNTER we welcome them all whether it’s birthdays, anniversaries, engagements, weddings (of every kind), corporate events, team gatherings – you name it, we do it.
Located in one of the areas iconic railway arches, we are the longest restaurant venue in London. Our unique floorplan space has the flexibility to create the set-up and impact you require. From large group dinners to cabaret style entertainment, our ‘deco meets disco’ interior adds that extra glamour. Check out the Google 360 walk-through at the bottom of this page.
Counter Bar & Brasserie
With grey leather banquets, teak parquet, mirrored walls and a brass-topped island bar, our main dining room can host up to 100 guests for dinner or 200 guests for a standing reception.
This is where anything can and will happen. Our smaller, yet more versatile space located at the back of COUNTER (with it’s own private entrance) has hosted everything from corporate training sessions to weddings and cabaret shows.

With its own pizza kitchen, we can serve antipasti and pizza in no time for your reception, or wood-fired roasts for your dinner.
