Mandarin Oriental London Events & Parties

Cherished by celebrities and the royal family, Mandarin Oriental London is an unforgettably classic location for celebrations and events.

Whether you’re hosting an intimate dinner or grand celebration, the striking venue has a diverse selection of beautiful function rooms all opulently decorated. Choose from the stunning Mandarin Ballroom, where HM Queen Elizabeth II learned to dance with her sister; or host an elegant affair in the Asquith and Balfour rooms which are ideal for private dining and come with the attention of a personal butler as well as a dedicated entrance.

There are three first-class restaurants, two Michelin stars, and one magnificent bar in Mandarin Oriental London offering incredible culinary experiences for guests. 

Enjoy pre-dinner Champagne cocktails in the glamorous Mandarin Bar with its rectangular catwalk style bar, suspended copper glass light pendants and a gold geometric patterned frosted glass wall, before following the quirky and flavoursome journey of British gastronomy in the double Michelin starred restaurant, Diane by Heston Blumenthal.

The five-star hotel is conveniently located in the prestigious Knightsbridge, with ample public transport links nearby, and is only a short walk to London’s most fashionable hotspots; Harvey Nichols, Harrods and Sloane Street.

Two private dining rooms are available in Bar Boulud for a secluded setting and French menu by Michelin starred Daniel Boulud. Or private dining is available in a 16th-century Tudor inspired space in ‘Dinner’ which is ideal for private celebrations of up to 12 guests. The dramatic room features embossed leather walls, a replica of The King’s Table from Westminster Palace, gothic detailing and a beautiful central chandelier. A three- or four-course menu is available for guests, or tailored menus can be crafted.
