The best venues in Mayfair with private dining rooms

The abundance of restaurants, bars and hotels with private dining rooms in London’s affluent West End district of Mayfair make the area one of the most desirable locations for upmarket group dining events in the capital.

Mayfair – bordered by Regent Street, Oxford Street, Piccadilly and Park Lane- is part of the City of Westminster. The district lies to the south and west of the neighbouring W1 postcode districts of Marylebone and Soho. The elegant streets around Berkeley Square and Grosvenor Square are home to offices, exclusive shops and art galleries as well as foreign embassies.

Some of London’s most famous and expensive restaurants are to be found in Mayfair alongside internationally known hotels including The Dorchester, Claridge’s and The London Hilton on Hyde Park.

The sheer volume of office spaces occupied by industries in the district including hedge fund managers, legal firms, financial services and commodity traders ensures that private dining events are an important part of Mayfair restaurants’ business. Traditional pubs in the area with function rooms available to hire for group social events including standing drinks receptions are also always in high demand.

Mayfair is easily accessible by London Underground with the Central Line tube stations of Oxford Circus, Bond Street and Marble Arch located in the northern part of the district with Green Park & Piccadilly Circus tube stations to its southern edge.
