Located on the rooftop of the iconic National Theatre building, the Buffini Chao Deck comes with some serious wow-factor, offering breathtaking panoramic views across London from its wraparound riverside terrace. Wrapped in glazed panels, which can be retracted on warmer days, the space has an uninterrupted view 180 degree view of the river no matter the weather.

An ideal venue for business and leisure events, the space is suited to conferences, launches, drinks receptions, weddings, summer and Christmas parties, private dining and everything in between.

The large flexible space comes fitted with state-of-the-art, fully customisable lighting and AV designed and installed by the National Theatre’s Sound and Lighting departments. For people using hearing aids with a T-setting, a Loop System operates in the Buffini Chao Deck.

Catering comes from the in-house NT Food and Drink team, as well as the option for street food from KERB. From canapés to formal dinners, barbecues on the terrace and more – choose from existing menus or discuss creating a bespoke menu for something different.
