Buffini Chao Deck at the National Theatre
The National Theatre is home to a versatile range of modern and distinctive events spaces.
The Buffini Chao Deck is a stunning events venue situated on the roof of the iconic National Theatre. Offering breath-taking panoramic views across London, The Buffini Chao Deck 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 no matter the weather.
The Buffini Chao Deck is ideal for a stylish dinner and dance for up to 100 guests, or standing receptions for up to 200 and barbecues for 180. State-of-the-art lighting and AV has been designed and installed by the National Theatre’s Sound and Lighting departments, providing an inspiring backdrop for conferences, away-days, and product launches. In addition, The Buffini Chao Deck is licensed for weddings, with London’s skyline and the Thames riverscape providing the perfect setting to say ‘I do’.
