L’Etoile has offered its own brand of bistro chic to Charlotte Street for more than a century. Unusually for a Fitzrovia property, it offers four bright, well-appointed private spaces for events. Decorated in a classic French style, they best suit private dinners, but they’re also popular for cocktail and canapé receptions, parties, small product launches and meetings. Exclusive use is an option and there’s a choice of three private-dining set menus.
