New Venue Launch Event

PA & DJ Set Up

Sama Bankside Bar Main Upper Arear


We were delighted to send one of our DJs to the launch of Sama Bankside Bar, 3 Robinson Road Southwark London SE1 8BU

Sama Bankside bar is a sleek, large open space exposed brick wall event space restaurant and cocktail bar split over two floors with a bar on each floor as well as a separate private dining room.  

Since the launch in 2017 it has built up an exceptional rapport with local office businesses and is a regular used hub spot for daytime team building days, local residents for brunch as well as hosting busy fun weekend parties.

As the bar has a 4500 square ft space over two floors they can hold multiple events at one go. The venue has a minimal woodwork rustic clean charm which again makes it ideal to bring in props and decorations for events which proves to be a popular choice for customers who book.

About and our side at the launch event in September 2017: 

2x Technics 1200 Turntables & DJM S9 scratch showcase mixer to for the DJ to plug into venue sound system. 

The DJ hired to was asked to perform an open format showcase set. The turntable option set up was used to add a little showcase theme along with the style of play to suit the quirky Sama Bankside Bar event space. 

Music starting at low volume for clients to mingle and connect three hours and then last hour have a little boogie on the dance floor. Special showcase DJ set from 7-10pm was so that potential new clients could get an idea of the bar music policy;  different genres and eras of music to show the venue is different to conventional bars. 

The venue is independently run by a single owner who also happens to be a close friend of ours as well a client who we’ve been working for before the days that Party Night London was formed. We emphasise independently owned for a reason –  as with non-chained venues such as Sama. Sole owner(s) always focus on a very close customer service and close detail to every booking. 

Sama Bankside Bar is highly recommended by us as good choice of venue to hold your event or part.

Music: Alternative track list requested by owner for mash up set of funky breaks old skool hiphop not aggressive hiphop, funk, 80s (not commercially) and a touch of ragga and reggae with showcase scratching. Not conventional bar music found regularly on this promotional launch. 

Timeout reporter positive feedback to our DJ: “one of the best DJ sets we’ve ever heard”
