Step through the commanding Victorian Gothic archways of De Vere Venues Holborn Bars and you can’t help but be inspired by the arched windows, stuccoed ceilings and ornate period detailing of one of the most historic buildings of business in London. Holborn Bars was commissioned by the Prudential Insurance Company in the early 1870s to be their stunning new Head Office, and it’s been a revered location of business ever since. And as a De Vere Venues dedicated conference venue it continues to maintain its position as one of the capital’s most historic places of business. Whether enjoying a working lunch in the Chairman’s office or a presentation in the stately Boardroom, you can’t help but feel the inspiration that comes from nearly 150 years of Holborn Bars business heritage.
