About Ochre

Description

Located in the William Wilkins building in the National Gallery, Ochre is a stunning destination for your festive event, be it a drinks reception or an intimate dinner. This unique and versatile space boasts timeless elegance and offers an iconic setting for an unforgettable Christmas event, with options for semi and exclusive hire for parties, and a private dining space for dinners.

For a grand festive event, exclusive hire of Ochre includes private use of the main dining room, a light and airy space with high ceilings, large windows and traditional décor, the adjoining cocktail bar and lounge, and a DJ booth area. Up to 150 guests can be hosted for an evening of Champagne and canapes, or 72 for a seated dinner at round tables, perfect for a lavish Christmas dinner. The dedicated team will be on hand to organise everything from entertainment to arranging furniture to make the most of the space, and you will benefit from perks such as a separate entrance onto Charing Cross Road, and a late-night license until 2:30am. Smaller drinks receptions of up to 30 guests can be accommodated via semi-exclusive hire of the bar area only, a lively yet comfortable space that maintains some privacy whilst enjoying the atmosphere of the main room.

For a Christmas meal with family or colleagues, the Ochre private dining room is an excellent choice. Boasting views of Nelson’s Column and St Martin-in-the-Fields, and complete with a stunning chandelier and large round table, this totally self-contained space can seat up to 19 guests for a seasonal feast. There are three menu options varying in budget and dinner style, so if you’d prefer individual meals or large sharing plates, like a Hereford beef Wellington, the choice is yours. Additional extras like canapes, oysters, caviar, mini mince pies and petit fours are available to add that special touch, and there is an extensive selection of Champagne and wine to accompany your event.

Delightful, classy and beautiful.JULY, 2022

The room was a delight, beautifully presented and with a classy aesthetic. We were lucky the sun was out during the day as we got lots of sunshine through the beautiful windows.
