At The Flash Pack, we obviously love photo booths! There’s something really nostalgic about cramming into a booth with your friends; getting snapped and receiving a print. All around The Flash Pack studio, you can see booth prints taped to screens, walls, and to our very own Photoautomat inspired photo booth. Being booth creators, and such big fans, we thought it only right to create a list of the best and most interesting booths in London. Our selection has some total classics; interesting builds, and a few of our own that we’re the proudest of.
W Hotel, Soho – Free
Based at the luxurious cosmopolitan W Hotel, Leicester Square – we transformed a once unused space into an extravagant guest experience.
This bespoke photo installation features a full-length two-way mirror; motion sensors to activate filament bulbs – creating a unique ambiance, and a touch screen for social sharing.
Lululemon, Regents Street – Free
The newest of the Lululemon stores houses one of our permanently installed, custom Retro photo booths.
Styled to match the interior of the store – we used exactly the same materials that were used throughout the whole location. Sporting a wood finish, custom neon sign, and photo wall for visitors – this photo booth is a throwback to the Retro booth, but with a modern twist.
Tape London, Mayfair – Free
In the exclusive West London superclub, Tape – you can find a new breed of photo booth. Fully custom built into a previously unused space – our custom installation takes all that makes our Retro booth amazing and condenses it down into a powerful photographic package.
With a quick touch of the screen, the micro booth will get your photos ready to share in seconds via your social account.
Rough Trade, Shoreditch – £4
Prominently located at the entrance of Rough Trade, you can find a UK classic. The booth has original styling, with the whole outside of the booth plastered in black & white booth prints. The whole booth has a punk zine feel to it, and is a throwback to the 70’s.
All Star Lanes, Shoreditch – £3
Located in Brick Lane, you can find the American 1930’s inspired bowling alley, All Star Lanes. Right in the foyer, you can find a retro masterpiece. Classically inspired by the art-deco designs of the 30’s – this booth is a real retro standout.
The Hoxton Hotel, Shoreditch – £3
In one of our favourite East London haunts, The Hoxton Hotel – they have a beauty of a 70’s analog booth in the lobby. With a classic typeface on the sign, and a worn out aesthetic of metals and oranged bulbs; this booth is a throwback to the early years of booths.
Meatmission, Hoxton – Free
Another East London gem, is the gothically styled booth found in MEATmission, Hoxton.
Fitting right into its surroundings, and positioned near the bar; this booth is in all black, with a rich red photo curtain. We’re almost certain there are at least one of these booth prints somewhere at the studio, taken after a heavy lunch trip with beers.
H&M, Oxford Street – £3
Located on the third floor of the flagship H&M, Oxford Circus; you can find their custom Photoautomat booth.
Under the hood, this booth has an ultra high-quality camera; social sharing from the touch screen, and produces classic black and white photo booth strip prints. It also accepts contactless and cash payments, making it quick and easy for customers to take a moment out to grab a photo.
So there you have it, the definitive list of the best, and boldest photo booths in London.
If you’re looking for a great photo booth, like our Photoautomat inspired Berliner Booth; or if you’re after something a bit more permanent like our custom installation at W Hotel, let us know and we’ll build something awesome for you.
