Venue Hire

Welcome to the best kept secret in town: Margate’s seaview venue, bar & kitchen.

Faith In Strangers is the per­fect, unique venue for your next event.

It’s been built as a mod­ern dis­cothèque so is ide­al for cor­po­rate cel­e­bra­tions, par­ties and large get-togeth­ers such as birth­days and wed­ding receptions.

We offer full venue hire for pri­vate events of all sizes and uses along with par­tial hire via our Ter­race Lounge which is per­fect for small­er gatherings.

We want to help make your event a suc­cess, so please talk to us about your plans and we will be hap­py to help.

Hid­den from the pub­lic view, jour­ney on up the secret entrance and through two bespoke light and audio art instal­la­tions (which you can cus­tomise to your pref­er­ence) to an envi­ron­ment that’s been designed from the ground up to stim­u­late all the sens­es and inter­act with the audi­ence to cre­ate that awe inspir­ing fac­tor that will kick the events off with a high ener­gy atmos­phere from all of your attendees. 

To car­ry on inspir­ing the ener­gy, you could cus­tomise the playlist on our bespoke built juke­box in the restrooms.

At our bar & kitchen, we offer a selec­tion of bespoke cock­tails, often with an Asian twist such as the Sriracha Spritz or Japan­ese Shandy, along with most of the clas­sics. We have access to an exten­sive large wine list curat­ed through Char­lie from Nobel Rot. For beer lovers, we have ten rotat­ing taps fea­tur­ing local and inter­na­tion­al selections.


We have a ful­ly fit­ted out pro­fes­sion­al kitchen, we work close­ly with one of the best local chefs who has worked at some of the best restau­rants in Lon­don and elsewhere.

We take our sound seriously.

The first thing you’ll notice about Faith In Strangers is the amaz­ing views, the sec­ond might be how good the venue sounds. Archi­tec­tural­ly designed with acoustic pan­elling and angled walls has cre­at­ed a son­i­cal­ly sound hous­ing for our cusotm built Posei­don Sound System’

The venue also hosts a unique mul­ti­-chan­nel array set up of Funk­tion One speak­ers. 24 of them are placed around the venue which cre­ates the oppor­tu­ni­ty to make spa­tial sound scapes along with sep­a­rate indi­vid­ual out­puts, evok­ing a sense of the­atre that immers­es the audi­ence from enter­ing the building.

What does this mean? — You’ll be able to greet your guests with pre-record­ed audio con­tent in all the dif­fer­ent zones as you please, as your guests enter the venue, walk­ing through the hall­way, up the stairs, in the bogs and in the dif­fer­ent areas of the main space too. Per­fect for a brand launch or to intro the evening and con­tin­u­al­ly engage over the course of the event.
