Lima is one of London’s most revered restaurants, and is the first and only Peruvian restaurant in the UK to be awarded a Michelin star. It draws the crowds by serving up high-end takes on Peruvian cuisine alongside punchy Pisco Sours. The bold and vibrant combinations served at the table are matched by the restaurant’s upbeat interiors, which include colourful murals on the walls.
As an events space, Lima offers three options for private hire. Firstly, the downstairs Sotano area boasts its own bar, as well as comfortable banquette seating and splashes of colour on the walls. Able to accommodate between 7-25 guests at one time, the space can play host to a variety of celebrations and corporate functions, including parties, standing cocktail and canapé receptions and seated dinners.
Elsewhere, the semi-private dining area at the front of the restaurant’s ground floor is also available for group bookings. The space can be used to enjoy dinner with friends or colleagues with a touch of intimacy, while retaining the buzzy atmosphere of the open kitchen and main dining room. Large open windows are a bonus here, resulting in the space feeling light and airy – perfect for daytime functions, such as a business lunch.
Lima can also be hired exclusively across its two floors, hosting up to 70 guests for a seated dinner or 100 for a standing reception. The restaurant’s central location is a further draw, with Lima just a short walk from bustling Oxford Street, as well as being near to London attractions such as Regent’s Park and The British Museum.
