The perfect places for private dining in London
Dine in some of the most intimate spaces in the capital
London is rich in incredible dining options, but it can be difficult to find an intimate, private space to host guests for important events. For something extra special, The Doyle Collection’s London hotels offer stylish private dining spaces, suitable for every type of celebration.
1. The Marylebone Rooms, The Marylebone
Whether it’s for a birthday dinner, wedding party or work event, The Marylebone Rooms offer a selection of beautifully designed spaces for guests to gather and raise a glass. Sitting in the heart of the buzzing Marylebone Village, the hotel’s private spaces can cater to up to 60 guests for a sit down dinner.
Head up to the first floor of The Marylebone and into The Courtyard – a chic space designed for a luxurious escape from the city’s hustle and bustle. Feel instantly at home as you and your guests are welcomed into this foliage-lined terrace, featuring a snug open fire to be enjoyed by either 40 standing guests and 24 seated. An ideal choice for an modern drinks event, whether with an office team or a group of close friends. A retractable roof is also on hand for warmer days.
The newest edition to The Marylebone Rooms roster and now available to meet all your private space needs is Number Six. Comprised of two adjoining rooms and a private bar, its sophisticated ambience is perfectly suited to host every kind of event from corporate presentations to seated dinner parties. During the day the ‘Palm’ rooms are an urban retreat, for daytime meetings as it’s botanical-style upholstery and snug breakout areas create an open space allowing creativity to flow.
The Blue Room
Step into the bright and bold Blue Room on The Marylebone’s first floor for an events space which adds both colour and style to your event. From social gatherings to product meetings and conference calls – the unorthodox colours and curated art have given this room the perfect ambience. With a space flooded in natural light and walls glowing in cobalt blue, the Blue Room is a brilliant alternative for a relaxed and playful event. Built to hold a capacity of 80 people, it’s a sure choice to add flare to any occasion.
2. Town House, The Kensington
If you’re thinking of throwing an evening dinner or drinks event in style, then look no further than The Kensington’s stylish abode. The character and charm of Town House is unparalleled and will make any occasion feel indulgent and elegant.
There are three interconnecting rooms available, featuring elegant interiors and large windows, for a bright and contemporary event. The Town House can personally design a bespoke menu to suit your celebration, be it for a meeting, dinner party or cocktail-and-canapé evening. Seasonal dishes and indulgent treats are created by the restaurant’s expert catering team, all complemented by a beautiful selection of wines and cocktails.
3. The Bloomsbury
Merging together old-world grandeur and charm, The Bloomsbury offers a beautiful selection of private dining spaces, perfect for hosting events big or small. With a collection of different events spaces to choose from, it offers an eclectic selection of rooms to help bring your visions to life.
If you’re looking to go big then the George V ballroom is the room for you. The Grade II listed ballroom has recently been stylishly restored with striking botanical décor, inspired by the intrepid adventures of King George V. It is the largest space in The Bloomsbury hotel, doubling up as both an events and conference space, holding up to 320 people for a spectacular celebration.
The book-lined walls of the intimate Seamus Heaney Library at The Bloomsbury is a real gem for a private party. Named after the Nobel Prize-winning Irish poet (who was a regular guest at the hotel, and opened the room back in 2011), it houses hundreds of first edition novels, creating an intelligent space for a celebration. The room can be transformed from a comfortable meeting space to a luxurious intimate dinner party – ideal for a day-to-night celebration.
