Hospitality Events and Private Hire

Buffini Chao Deck

The Buffini Chao Deck is our newly refurbished events venue situated on the roof of the iconic National Theatre. Offering breath-taking panoramic views across London, the venue combines a riverside outdoor terrace with a large flexible event space. The building is wrapped in glazed panels which can be retracted on warmer days, so the uninterrupted view is preserved whatever the weather.

The Buffini Chao Deck can host for up to 100 guests for dinner, 200 for a reception and 120 for conferences. The Buffini Chao Deck is also licensed for weddings, with London’s skyline and the Thames riverscape providing an inspiring backdrop to say ‘I do’.

Lighting and AV has been designed and installed by the National Theatre’s Sound and Lighting departments so you can expect the very best.

Catering is curated by KERB allowing you a huge choice or London’s top independent street food traders or a more traditional menu designed just for you by our Executive Chef. Whatever you choose, KERB will make your event taste better.
