If you’re looking to plan a private dinner party in the West of London and want to secure the perfect venue but don’t know where to start, then consider the following options, all right at the top of their game.
Toro Gordo is a unique, independent venue that offers guests an atmosphere and style that is unlike anything else out there, in thanks to their daring blend of Asian and Spanish decoration and exciting mix of exotic cocktails and delicious tapas. Every style of dinner party, from a corporate evening to a wedding celebration, can be held here in this versatile offering, able to accommodate up to 120 people per event. It sits between Hammersmith and Ravenscourt tube stations, both of which can easily be reached on foot in a little over 5 minutes.
Beach Blanket Babylon is so much more than your standard bar and restaurant, with a feeling of splendour that is sure to make anyone feel special. The ornate yet warm and welcoming design is of the highest standard with a keen eye for detail having been retained throughout, making this feel like a private members club for the most discerning of socialites, but without the need for a membership. Be it breakfast, lunch or dinner, this beautiful venue near Notting Hill Gate is able to accommodate your every dining need, with a flair and style you’re not likely to forget.
Lovers of nature and all things beautiful will no doubt delight at attending an evening dinner party at The Chelsea Gardener, a charming venue filled to the brim with all sorts of plants and ornaments in bold colours. Areas at your disposal include the main heated showroom, covered and uncovered outdoor gardens and an orangery, all of which are spacious and yet feel intimate in thanks to the sumptuous décor. With a generous maximum capacity of 350 and 2 tube stations reachable within 10 minutes, The Chelsea Gardener is as practical as it is charming.
Mode is more of an experience than it is a venue – and it’s one that is guaranteed to make a lasting impression. The theme behind the stunning, unique design is ‘Future Vintage’ and this clever juxtaposition pulls inspiration from sources as varied as the cultural heritage of Notting Hill and the industrial revolution. With a main room, mezzanine and cocktail bar inside, there is ample space to utilise for your party, and with its excellent location just off Portobello Road, right between Ladbroke Grove and Westbourne Park tube stations, it is easily reached from throughout London.
London Cru is an altogether unique offering, allowing you to hold your event in London’s very first winery. In fact, large stainless steel tanks still line the walls in the main room and various pieces of machinery have remained behind to retain that sense of urban, industrial-chic. The white wall finish keeps things feeling fresh and modern, while the spacious venue itself can accommodate up to 180 guests per reception. The nearest transport link at your disposal is West Brompton, which can be found just a 4 minute walk away; handy for those who are coming from across the city.
