On 17 July 2019, the Museum of London Docklands
launched the latest addition to its venue portfolio, The Rum Store, welcoming
clients, agents and press to an exclusive drinks reception on the docks of
Canary Wharf. The event was designed to showcase the endless possibilities of
the new space, housed in one of the oldest Georgian warehouses in Britain.
The Rum Store offers a stunning blank canvas space featuring
exposed brick walls and original pitch pine columns, while the terrace offers
the perfect area for a summer BBQ. Once home to 25,000 caskets of rum, The Rum
Store will be able to host a variety of events for up to 200 guests.
As part of the launch event, guests were able to explore the
new space while enjoying a range of exciting food stations from the museum’s
catering partner, CH&Co, as well as a selection of exclusive rum cocktails
including a ‘Berry Daquiri’ and ‘Nelson’s Blood’, inspired by the venue
Tours of the museum were also available courtesy of the
experienced events team, and guests were also given access to the major
exhibition, Secret Rivers.
Sarah McQueen, Assistant Head of Commercial Services at the
Museum of London, commented: “We’re delighted to have The Rum Store back in our
events offering at the Museum of London Docklands and can’t wait for guests to
experience what this historic space has to offer. Our Nautical Nights summer
parties are currently in full swing at the museum, and clients are now able to
book the Rum Store as part of our Deck The Halls Christmas Package. It’s set to
be a very exciting few months at the Museum of London Docklands!”
