They sent me various options and quotes based on my specific needs and brief and I simply chose the one for me. It’s as easy as that and because of their expertise in driving the best rates, not only am I saving time and effort but also money.
Function Fixers make everything easier, taking away the often frustrating task of contacting and being on top of various venues for quotes, to finding restaurants as well as being on top of billing and any random queries an EA receives.
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for all of your help finding the venue for our event, it went without a hitch on 13th and everyone was very pleased with the outcome.

Venue Introduction

 Approach the glass fronted facade and glimpse into a haven that includes a stunning bar, two cocktail lounges, a contemporary kitchen complete with chef’s table, decadent wine store and a quintessentially British delicatessen, courtesy of Borough Market’s finest producers. Located on Gresham Street in the City, The Anthologist offers discerning guests something a little out of the ordinary.
Encapsulating a collection of all your favourite things, the anthologist offers a seasonal all day menu, vintages from across the globe, skinny cocktails, a mixology table and an assortment of spaces for any occasion including a private room complete with 1950’s kitchen.

Serving breakfast from 8am, The Anthologist is the ideal destination for a quick coffee and warm pastry on the go, or a more relaxed ‘fully loaded’ traditional English with the morning paper. With free WiFi throughout, there’s no better place to stop when out of the office. Come lunch and dinner, the modern European menu champions local and seasonal produce, with Borough Market favourites such as the Flour Station featuring alongside Allen’s of Mayfair. Offering a range of nibbles for one or more to share, sharing boards, gourmet sandwiches and burgers as well as hearty mains and zesty salads, The Anthologist’s menu is filled with innovative dishes.

Additional Notes:

Exposed brick, antique mirrors, a marble mixology table, a lovers swing seat and a 1950’s style kitchen are just some of the statement pieces to be discovered in The Anthologist. Through the central double doors, guests are greeted with a capacious bar filled with colour, texture, style and a playful sense of fun. Reclaimed pine flooring leads guests around vibrant orange high tables to an impressive walnut bar that is the central focus of the whole venue.

To the right is the open plan kitchen where The Anthologist chefs are seen prepping, peeling and serving at the pass. Diners can pull up a stool here to catch all the action or slip into the lilac alcove chef’s table complete with vibrant cerise and white chairs, and walls adorned with botanical sketches from floor to ceiling. Raised cabana style seating perched in the windows allows diners to sit aloft whilst the main dining area is filled with low-level tables and stocky wooden benches. Empty magnum bottles hang from the deli ceiling and an aged chest of drawers is topped with baskets of fresh produce and jars of vibrant sweets.

To the left of the main entrance are two striking cocktail lounges, the first called the snug is cleverly partitioned with laser cut metal screens to create a semi-private space for guests. With wood-panelled walls bathed in lavender the effect is serene yet sophisticated. The Panel Room is the second, holding up to 55 seated guests along milk chocolate banquettes and contemporary white rocking chairs.

Down the champagne-cased staircase couples can enjoy a quiet moment on the swing chair, before making their way past ‘pepper’, the black pig who is only to happy to hold your drinks, before stumbling upon Studio 58. A private room for up to 60 guests, the studio comes complete with a 1950’s kitchen, ultimately where all the good parties start and finish, and doubles as a private bar (hired with or without a mixologist). Brushed white, the space includes a mezzanine tasting table for private dinners or wine tastings for 12.

Open from 7:30am till late, Monday – Friday and available for exclusive hire on weekends, with ‘wine to go’, music and a late license until 2am on Thursday and Friday, The Anthologist is a collection of spaces brought together with style, sophistication and substance.
