House Parties at No 42 Margate

Birthday party. Anniversary party. Just-why-not party.

And when No.42 is serving Wes-Anderson-vibes-by-the-sea, we don't need a reason to get the gang together, lay down some tunes and pop some corks.

From a night of margaritas & tacos with your inner-circle in a cosy nook of the bar, to an all-out House Party taking over No.42 totally, it's the hottest party destination on the strip (and not just Margate's!).  Is there a better way to celebrate? We think not. Discover House Parties at No 42 Margate here.

Glow-sticks optional.

Where the magic happens

No.42 is the impressive roof (directly) under which sits our rooftop bar - further down, we've got 18 rooms in the Main House & 3 Lookout Suites next door (with their own private access - perfect for VIPs). We're home to the most Eastern-outpost of 'Pearly Cow', our fabulous fire & ice concept restaurant, along with No.42's cocktail bar & lounge. Further down still, you'll find the quiet retreat of our treatment rooms. Come on in...
