Live Lounge

We go loud and late every weekend.

Get buzzed by our vibrant atmosphere and party all night long in our award-winning live lounge. Rigged up with immersive lighting, the stage is set for a medley of world-class artists to engage in an intimate live music experience. This can be made all the more personal with our venue’s four large private seated booths. This venue is also perfect for those looking for private bar hire. However, the live lounge is only available for on Saturdays and Sundays – so act quickly! You never know who might swoop in to steal the spotlight. In addition to this, we pride ourselves on our enviable range buffet and canapé options suited to your budget.


Cocktail Bar

Featuring a spectacular selection of spirit.

Boasting a mind-blowing array of whiskey, rum and gins – along with an assortment of champagne, wine and cocktail offerings – our main cocktail bar offers some of the best concoctions known to mixology. Relax, unwind and get ready for a good time at Canvas. While this private bar hire encourages mixing and mingling, it’s only available during the daytime. If not, it’s available on days when we are closed to the public (such as Monday and Tuesday). With a capacity of approximately 100 standing and 45 seated, it can open up into the Live Lounge should your party require additional space.


The Green Room

Shh! This is the latest addition to Canvas.

For those looking for private bar hire with a twist, look no more. Waltz into a world of intrigue and step into the soles of flappers or clubmen back in the days of prohibition America. Hidden away from the rest of Canvas, this luxury speakeasy evokes insatiable feelings amongst us Brits that we simply can’t resist. After all, when you want something in this world, there’s not much that will come between you and a good time. So why not revisit the roaring twenties with over 50 gins locked away just for you and your party. In addition to this, there are additional options of us serving your guests cocktails, canapés and a buffet too.
