East London’s hottest new venue Riverside East, to Join the Lime Venue Portfolio

Lime Venue Portfolio has announced the addition of Riverside East to its group of venues. The stylish events space is situated centrally within the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, adjacent to the ArcelorMittal Orbit and slide, the London Aquatic Centre, Westfield Stratford shopping centre, and the London Stadium, and is operated by the portfolio’s award-winning bar and event specialist, Peppermint Events, who have also overseen a transformation of the 100 – 2000 capacity venue.

Riverside East will open in the Spring after a multimillion-pound refurbishment and Lime Venue Portfolio has been bought in to add value to the venue’s meetings and events proposition, exposing it to the thousands of organisers looking for London based venues.

The space is ideal for corporate events, dinners, and brand activations, with the recent investment including the creation of a stunning rooftop terrace with panoramic views over east London, complete with a 260-cover restaurant “The Terrace”, “The Café” a breakfast/brunch/lunch venue on the ground floor with freshly baked bread, local London coffee, craft beers and cocktails. The venue also includes a brand new dedicated multi-use outdoor space “The Yard” boasting the best of London’s Street Food, Big screens and sun-drenched seating for up to 500. Riverside East has a keen sustainability strategy – working with local sustainable partners and a lo-waste, hyper seasonal menu with plant-forward approach.

The venue has also been confirmed as the official Welcome Reception partner for The Meetings Show, underlining its support for the meetings and events industry. The reception, that takes place the evening before the main show will showcase Riverside Easts sustainability credentials, as well as provide a fitting setting for a summer event.

Speaking on the announcement, Adam Hempenstall, Founder and Director, Peppermint, commented. “We are finally seeing our vision come to life at Riverside East and we now have a contemporary and stylish space which reflects the food, culture, and lifestyle of this part of East London. It’s a community space and we already feel part of the family. It’s perfect for events of all types and we’re looking forward to working with Lime Venue Portfolio to launch it to the events industry for what could be an awesome summer and beyond.”

Jo Austin, Sales Director, Lime Venue Portfolio, added: “This is exactly the sort of event space that we want in our portfolio. It’s a testament to the creativity of Peppermint, and the way they can breathe new life into these concepts. It’s a perfect summer venue as it has that stunning terrace view and some brilliant outdoor options. We can’t wait to bring it to our customers, they’ll love it.”

At the centre of the development of Riverside East has been its commitment to sustainable practices and eco-friendly initiatives. The venue prioritises sustainability in its design, operations, and food and drink whilst also working with regional suppliers and manufacturers.
