What is the most important factor when booking a venue for a Christmas party?

 

Private Dining Room at Babylon

(menu)

Private_Dining_Room_Wedding.jpgThe Roof Gardens in Kensington High Street, with its famous pink flamingos (Bill and Ben), is probably one of the best-known venues in London, and rightly so. Not as familiar is the private dining room in its restaurant, Babylon. It’s a lovely space for intimate dinners, seating a minimum of 10 and maximum of 12, overlooking the English Woodland Garden with its 30 different species of trees, Bill and Ben and a fishpond.

On balmy summer evenings, a private balcony is ideal for Champagne receptions, but if the weather forces your party inside, floor-to-ceiling windows ensure the light and views are uninterrupted. Service is friendly and unhurried, with excellent modern European cuisine: choice dishes include smoked salmon with sweet potato blinis and pan-fried sea bream with steamed mussels. Top tip: Bring along your favourite CDs and play DJ – the room has its own music system.
