The Italian Greyhound (formerly Bernardi’s) is a stylish Italian bar and dining room in the well-to-do neighbourhood of Marylebone, conveniently located less than a five minute walk from Marble Arch tube station.
The venue is available for both partial and exclusive hire for all manner of personal and corporate events, including the likes of private birthday parties, charity dinners and corporate functions. The Italian Greyhound is split between a ground floor bar, a main dining room and a basement private dining space. The venue also boasts a wraparound corner terrace which overlooks the buzz of Seymour Place, ideal for intimate casual drinks receptions and other alfresco events.
The Italian Greyhound’s dining room is a chic and calming space, complete with neutral tones and oak tables. The room is flooded with plenty of natural light thanks to large windows, while padded banquette seating will ensure guests are comfortable. Groups hiring out the dining room can enjoy a traditionally Italian menu of small plates, pizette and pasta, as well as large plates such as John Dory with Italian spinach, fresh peas and bottarga or dry-aged ribeye with braised cicoria and salsa rossa. Dolci includes the likes of pistachio tiramisu or cherry and almond tart, while The Italian Greyhound’s extensive drinks list features fizz, wines, beers and fun Italian-style cocktails, including two unique takes on a classic Negroni.
For more intimate events, you can choose to hire out the subterranean private dining room, which comes complete with its own dedicated bar and terrazzo garden, making the space feel extra exclusive. Of course, if you are looking to throw a large party or corporate function, there is also the option to hire out the venue in its entirety and make use of all three spaces - a request the team would be more than happy to accommodate.
