In search of a unique private dining venue in West London? We’ve taken care of the legwork for you and put together this list of top choices, hopefully saving you both time and stress.
You don’t get a much more unique theme than Spain meets Asia, but that’s exactly the kind of thing you can expect to find here at Toro Gordo, with influences from both parts of the world not only in the decoration but the menu too; as you tuck into delicious Spanish tapas and exotic cocktails. Able to host themed parties, you could put your own stamp on it and create an even more unique occasion if you so desire, but regardless of that, the venue itself should be a breeze to reach, with good rail links found close by.
Like an underground labyrinth, the first space you’ll come to in Dirty Bones is the main bar, complete in a funky, kitsch style, with touches including a leather sofa, torn wallpaper and a vintage pinball machine. Adjacent to this you’ll find the dining room, accented by hand-cut crystal lights, tiled-top tables, book shelves and an eclectic range of knick-knacks. The seating plan can be rearranged to suit your particular needs, whilst the fully equipped DJ booth, projector and screen means that organising entertainment is also easily done. Better yet, there’s even a private lounge that comes with its very own bar.
A world-class cocktail bar that has become a firm favourite with locals for its relaxed and welcoming vibes, Eclipse Chelsea is guaranteed to deliver a good night out, whether it’s a few quiet drinks after work or a lively night out with your friends. Found on Walton Street, it’s in an area of Knightsbridge known for its beautiful boutiques and restaurants, with South Kensington and Sloane Square tube stations being the nearest transport links at your disposal.
If it’s the food you want to be the real star of the show, The World’s End Market is a fine choice. Believing wholeheartedly in healthy, fresh and above all else, flavoursome food, they grill-sear all their meat, fish and chicken dishes to both reduce calorific intake and lock in the natural flavours. The ingredients are of the highest quality and always locally sourced wherever possible. As for the venue itself, it has a simple yet effective sense of old-school elegance and understated charm.
Elgin houses a first-floor event space that has lots of characterful touches that bring a wonderful warmth and charm to the venue, including a fireplace, lots of exposed brickwork, quirky props and large windows that let in an abundance of natural light. This area can accommodate up to 100 people, but by taking over the entire venue, you can double this capacity to 200. Close to Oxford Circus and just a moment from Maida Vale tube stop, it’s easy to reach from throughout London.
