Camm & Hooper is to open its sixth site in the autumn and is eyeing another opening later this year or early 2018.

The Imbiba-backed events focussed vehicle will open Grace Hall on London’s Leadenhall Street after a £2m investment.

The venue will comprise four event spaces able to accommodate up to 200 theatre style, 170 seated and up to 600 standing across the whole venue.

The refurbishment, overseen by Russell Sage Studios, will aim to embrace the venue’s art deco heritage with a nod to its past as Grace and Co Bank.

A spokesperson for the group said it was focussed on the capital for expansion in the short term and was looking to open another site later this year or early 2018.

Managing director, Claire Lawson, said: “We are delighted to acquire this stunning venue, which neatly fits our portfolio and gives our clients the flexibility of a third iconic Camm & Hooper space in the heart of the city. We’re already taking bookings for the space and look forward to providing both new and existing clients with the service and setting that they have come to expect from us. We are working with Russell Sage Studio to celebrate the art deco origins of the site, while also bringing a new twist to this lovely building. We can’t wait to open the doors.”
