It’s important that within our industry we keep on top of our venue knowledge. As a team we carry out hundreds of site inspections every year across the UK and worldwide.

Conference Planning Executive, Kelly Stevens, recently headed into London to check out three key venues that have reputation for excellence in dining experience, ahead of putting them forward for a client. Here’s some key facts and Kelly’s personal insight into each of the venues.

Holborn Dining Room at the Rosewood London – Outdoor Terrace

  • The Glenlivent Glade – Rosewoods winter outdoor terrace.
  • They have transformed their terrace into a woodland glade with fur blankets & heated wooden seats.
  • Specialises in a selection of Glenlivet cocktails among others.
  • They are able to reserve spaces for large groups. i.e. 15+
  • Each person has a minimum spend of £35inc VAT per person.
  • A pre-order is required for any drinks and snacks.
  • Opens from 4pm but is flexible to open before hand to groups (will also be open to the public and guests from the earlier time too).

“A cosy winter wonderland terrace set in the courtyard of the Rosewood. Perfect semi private area for groups wanted to sip Champagne & Cocktails whilst sat on sheep skin rugs & heated seats.”

The Gilbert Scott (Restaurant within St Pancras Renaissance)

  • Amazing space, chefs table is located right in the kitchen of the main restaurant.
  • Surrounded by a wine/champagne cellar.
  • Sommelier comes with the private dinner.

Six Storeys – Soho

  • Six floors of old English quirkiness.
  • Bottom floor bar reminds you of an old fashioned English/Parisian bar.
  • Serves a weird & wonderful mixture of cocktails.
  • Each floor is different in it’s own way but has a theme that links them all in their scheme of décor.
  • Extremely flexible with various packages of F&B that you can utilise to make up the minimum spend.
  • It used to be a club that has been converted into event space.
  • Located very close to Oxford Street & Tottenham Court Road tube station.

“A quirky events venue over six floors, beautifully decorated with a quintessential English/Japanese feel. They blend their own alcohol flavours in large Kilners that can be made into a feature to impress guests.”
