Spaces At This Venue
Grand Hall & Balmoral Suites
The pièce de résistance is the magnificent Grand Hall, a vast and impressive space with arched ornate high and far away ceilings, detailed wood-panelling and stunning chandeliers. Uplighters are included within the hire; with the neutrally painted walls, dine in the midst of your company’s colour. Adjoining to the Grand Hall lies the Balmoral Suite, a large room ideal for breakout sessions or when used as a green room. In addition, the Balmoral Suite provides a suitable spot for a drinks reception as guests wait for the Grand Hall to be turned around.
Drawing Room & Edinburgh Suite
The neutrally painted walls of the adjoining Drawing Room & Edinburgh Suite, located on the first floor, is a set of black canvas rooms with a huge central circular bar. Host a presentation in one room, whilst the other space can be used for coffee breaks. Both rooms benefit from a stream of natural light from the vast windows.
Cornwall Suite & Crown Suite & Coronet
On the second floor, the Cornwall Suite and Crown Suite is flooded with original features including a focal glass domed ceiling. Like the Drawing Room & Edinburgh Suite, the room is neutrally painted, large almost floor-to-ceiling windows allowing for an abundance of natural light. The Coronet, included within the hire, makes for a well positioned registration area.
Penthouse & Roof Terrace
Dazzle guests in the exclusive self-contained penthouse level bar, a rather glamorous space which leads to a private outdoor rooftop terrace with rustic wooden decking. Lounge seating and vintage style light-bulb fairy lights are included within the hire.

These self-contained rooms benefit from natural light in a modern setting, perfect for training days or as part of a larger meeting where breakout rooms are required. The options vary, each beneficial to different event types and structures.

Definitely the feel of a Grand Banquet Hall with a large central staircase leading up to it and all the backup facilities of a large hotel. Attended an Indian wedding which handled a large audience and all the lavish catering comfortably. Very easy to reach just 3 mins walk from Holborn underground station.
