So depending on the size of your occasion, where are the best luxury private dining rooms for your festive party this Christmas time?
Dinner Party Style
If it’s close and cosy that you’re after, The Platinum Arowana Room at Scott’s Mayfair seats just six to eight. The room is opulent all year round, with mirrored walls adorned with classical art and a semi precious stone floor. So it’s a perfect setting for the decadence of the festive season. The à la carte menu features dishes exclusive to this private dining room and is seasonally focused. Plus, festive cocktails will set the tone perfectly. In this way you can be sure that the menu befits the occasion!
Yes, this is officially an outdoor space, covered and nestled within lush greenery. However it is open all year round, with a fireplace, heaters and blankets should guests feel the chill come evening. It’s usually operated as a cocktail and cigar terrace but with leather furnishings and the dark woods of a classic members’ club, it’s the perfect setting to cosy up in an intimate festive gathering.
If you’ve been to the Conservatory in the summer you’ll have noticed the retractable roof. However, in winter your eye will be drawn to the enormous fireplace that sits at the head of the space, keeping it cosy and warm. Head Chef Michael Brown creates exceptional seasonal menus for private events in the Conservatory. The food highlights the best of each season’s produce, so your event is bound to reflect the festive season. As the room includes candles and place cards, a classic and stylish ambience comes as standard.
Over the river from Pimlico sits Brunswick House, an extensive Grade II listed Georgian mansion. It actually houses a selection of smaller luxury private dining rooms, but if you’re in the market for a big bash you can hire the whole venue. This is the ultimate in festive party luxury with every need taken care of, from cocktails and canapés to a seated banquet and then dancing. Fruit and vegetable produce comes from Brunswick House’s own farm in Sussex, while meat is sourced from Cornwall and Yorkshire and seafood is day fresh.
No one does Christmas quite like The Ritz, and the opulent range of luxury private dining rooms here won’t disappoint. If you want to go full Christmas, The Ritz is surely the most festive of destinations. William Kent House is home to six different spaces, which means that whatever the scale of your gathering there’s the ideal space. Luxury comes as standard here, so you know that you’ll come away feeling the very best of Christmas spirit!
