The Capital’s hotels have long boasted a fabulous selection of private rooms for hire including a large range of small meeting rooms– but it’s not just hotels that offer private rooms these days. Restaurants, brasseries, member’s clubs and a wide variety of other venues also offer small private spaces that are perfect for hosting private and semi-private events.

So whether you’re looking for a modern space with state of the art technology for a high tech presentation or meeting, a room for a discrete board meeting or a stunning private room with an elegant ambience to an host intimate dinner party or a convivial celebration with select friends, then take a look at our selection of the best venues for small events right here.

Top Tip: For smaller events sharing menus not only provide a great choice of food items but provide guests with a great talking point – they’re ideal ice-breakers for do’s where guests don’t know each other.
