Intimate, clandestine, romantic and discrete – private dining rooms for up to ten guests are, by their very nature, small and select.
For business, this size of event often means ‘board’ or other ‘off-site’ meetings with a need for AV or VIP dining where the top brass is hosted. For personal events and private dinners, this number of guests will often mark a special occasion with very close friends or family as well as the odd proposal!
Small private rooms can now be found in a surprising number of London restaurants. So whether you fancy holding lunch or dinner at a private chef’s table in a Michelin starred restaurant, surrounding your guests with top vintages in a wine cellar or taking up one of the Capital’s many discrete spaces in a private club or hotel, there’s plenty to choose from.
So whether you’re hosting a business meeting or celebration with friends, we’ve a whole range of options to suit any type of event.
Top Tip: To make an intimate dinner even more special try a tasting menu or menu gastronomique – Not everyone will like everything, but that’s why it always makes a great talking point!
