For smart corporate events, swish cocktail receptions and parties that promise to leave a lasting impression, Adam Handling Chelsea at Belmond Cadogan Hotel is an obvious choice. The chef has injected some serious street cred to the bluechip Belmond brand with his innovative menu and contemporary interior design, making it an ideal spot for celebrating while enjoying top-notch food.
There are several spaces available for private hire, including a private dining room, Cadogan’s – the dedicated afternoon tea lounge – and exclusive hire of the restaurant. Staff can advise on the best space depending on the type of meeting or event you’re hosting.
Named after esteemed former guests, Oscar Wilde and Lillie Langtry, the Oscar and Lillie private dining room is large, bright and comfortable. With space for tables seating up to 50 guests, or for standing receptions of up to 100, it’s an ideal space for charity dinners, company-wide events and private parties.
For those who wish to hire the restaurant out for a seated lunch or dinner, there’s the option to do so. Warm grey wood panelled walls, parquet flooring and tables sporting potted plants and herbs to fit Handling’s commitment to sustainability all come together to make it a smart but tranquil space in which to dine.
Cadogan’s by Adam Handling, the hotel’s dedicated afternoon tea lounge, is the smallest of the three spaces available for private hire. Ideal for afternoon tea parties, the space can seat up to 32.
Obviously the menus designed by the esteemed Scottish chef are a big draw for those considering holding a private event here. Seasonal menus offer a variety of options for each course, including dishes such as grilled octopus, roast salmon, and Eton mess in the spring and summer, and the likes of game terrine, beef Wellington and salted chocolate crémeux in the autumn and winter months.
