We were recommended Kachette from a friend
We live in East London and after looking at a few different local venues, we were recommended Kachette by a close friend. After looking around, we knew it ticked all the boxes. Located in an old Underground station, it had two amazing exposed brick arches, was right in the middle of Shoreditch, close to the Town Hall and had bags of character. Because the venue had two separate rooms, we could have the wedding breakfast in one Arch and the party in the other without people having to hang around whilst things were set up. We were also able to extend the license until 2am so we didn’t have to stop the party early which was also big thing for us."
