Commissioned as an entertaining space for court masques by James I in 1622, Banqueting House dazzled London’s high society when it opened. You can almost feel the spirit of the company of courtiers who once drank, danced and partied beneath the magnificent Rubens-painted ceiling of the Main Hall. This space, when set for a candle-lit dinner, is an awe-inspiring sight, but the room is also perfect for receptions of 450 and awards dinners for 350 guests. The vaulted Undercroft below, once enjoyed as a drinking den by James I, makes an atmospheric space for a cocktail party for 250. A list of approved suppliers provides everything from flowers to photography.
The historic Whitehall venue has teamed up with Party Ingredients and opened The Undercroft Café. The old drinking den of King James I will be serving up gourmet sandwiches, salads and drinks until 2 September.
