Get a Room - The Balcony Room at The Globe


Balcony dinner Shakespere's Globe 1 - Balcony_dinner_Shakespere's_Globe_1.jpgThis room has a great many features, an immaculately polished wood floor among them, but essentially, it's all about the view. Large French doors open out onto the namesake balcony, from where you’ll spy St Paul's at 12 o'clock, with the city skyline and meandering course of the Thames spread alongside. Windows at the other end look out over Shakespeare's Globe itself. The simple decor lends itself to anything from dinners for 70 to cocktail receptions for Shakespeare's Globe - 0901_Shakespeare's_Globe_Balcony_Room.jpg120, without distracting from those views. Use it in conjunction with a performance at the theatre (for which group tickets and hospitality packages are available) or for a stand-alone event, with or without entertainment. In-house caterer Swan at the Globe serves up a fresh, seasonal menu and can also help source actors and musicians perform at your event.
