Rumours is a wonderful venue for hosting an event or private function, complete with stunning restaurant and occasion spaces and a central location in the heart of Mayfair. There are great public transport links from Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus underground stations, while the venue itself is just off of Regent Street, making it super easy to get to.
There are several event spaces within this globally influenced restaurant which are well suited for a multitude of occasions, from celebration dinners to product launches. The basement is the best space for fully private functions, accommodating 40 seated guests and 60 standing. The ground floor can be used for 30 people, while the terrace can be used for 60 to 80 patrons. Rumours is also available for exclusive hire and shared parties.
For party events, live entertainment from musicians or DJs is included, as well as a dance floor for some late night boogieing – the bar operates with a late license too. The atmosphere of the venue can also easily be transformed depending on the mood of the occasion.
When it comes to catering, there is the in-house restaurant, where you can arrange set menus from the all-day dining selection of dishes. Choose from a range of set menus or Rumours can help you curate a bespoke menu to suit the preferences and dietary requirements of your guests; there is also a canapé menu to go along with welcome drinks. The minimum spend is £2,000 during the week, but can go up to £4,500 for evenings, including the terrace.
The food is influenced by cuisines from all corners of the globe, using winning flavour combinations from around the world to create tantalising dishes. There are indulgent classic options or more healthy ones with plant-based ingredients, depending on what guests prefer. Dishes can range from comfort classics such as ricotta hotcakes or banana waffles, to the likes of salmon poke bowls loaded with fresh vegetables.
