Best private dining rooms in London’s West End

Bordered by Camden, Holborn, Knightsbridge and Westminster, the West End area of London comprises the districts of Covent Garden, Fitzrovia, Marylebone, Mayfair & Soho.

The West End is located several miles west of the City of London and is one of the most important business districts in the United Kingdom. Home to offices, restaurants, exclusive shops, art galleries and London’s Theatreland, this Central London area is one of the capital’s most popular tourist destinations.

The major shopping districts of Oxford Street, Bond Street, Regent Street and Covent Garden are home to a multitude of major high street retailers as well as some of the most expensive upmarket shops in the country.

The range and diversity of restaurants and hotels in the district – from the the authentic Chinatown cuisine of Soho to the Michelin starred restaurants of Mayfair – ensures that West End venues with private dining rooms are always in great demand for events including birthday celebrations, group lunches & dinners and corporate Christmas parties.

The area is also home to modern bars, traditional London pubs and private clubs, many of which have function rooms available to hire for events.

The West End is one of the most accessible parts of the capital via London Underground with around twenty tube stations scattered throughout the district.
