L’oscar London events

L’oscar London is a five-star boutique hotel and architectural gem located in the heart of Bloomsbury’s historic Holborn, close to the City, to Theatreland, to Soho, and the West End. Inspired by the history of the Bloomsbury Set, the Arts & Crafts design of the building and theatrical traditions of the area, Parisian interior designer Jacques Garcia created a seductive interior in a typically non-English style. The hotel features 39 bedrooms and is home to L’oscar Restaurant and three beautiful event spaces: The Baptist, The Committee Room, and The Library.

Housed in a building described as Edwardian Baroque, L’oscar’s bedrooms and event spaces are beautifully proportioned, full of character and retaining exquisite Arts & Crafts details, from oak panelling to intricately carved plasterwork to full height original windows. With this as a framework, interior designer Jacques Garcia has created an opulent, extravagant design of the utmost luxury. True to his style, the Frenchman lent the rooms opulence and atmosphere with a keen sense of history and attention to detail. The name L’oscar pays tribute to the world-famous writer Oscar Wilde.

An event at L’oscar London is synonymous with chic flamboyance and unforgettable moments. The venue’s impeccable attention to detail, warm hospitality, and sumptuous menus ensures an event experience that will be cherished and remembered.

Venue Testimonials

It was an amazing place to stay. The attention to detail in everything from light fixtures to furnishings was exquisite. The location was great as lots of points of interest were a good walk or taxi drive away.

This hotel exceeded all of my expectations and they were high to begin with. From pre-arrival communications to check-out, the staff was just amazing. The hotel's design is fun, rich and comfortable.

Greg F

L’Oscar embodies what 5 stars really mean. The food and cocktails are incredible but I should stress that you should make room for dessert as their pastry chef is top notch. The rooms are wonderful and beds super comfortable. They are also an events hotel: I have done two events in their beautiful meeting rooms that were incredibly successful. I cannot recommend them enough. When you talk about amazing service and beautiful hotel they live up to what a 5 star hotel should be.
