Situated in the heart of Marylebone, Asia House is a truly elegant setting in which to host a private meal or event. The beautiful Georgian townhouse is Grade II-listed and features interiors designed by neoclassical architects Robert and James Adam, so you and your guests can admire details such as filigree plasterwork and inset classical paintings while you meet, wine and dine.
The building houses a number of flexible spaces for meetings and conferences, private lunches and dinners, and receptions, all of which are beautifully-proportioned and well-equipped. Fine Room 3, the former master bedroom of the house, is best suited to small gatherings, from meetings to intimate dinners, and receptions as it comfortably accommodates up to 30 for a banquet-style meal or standing reception.
The Hutchison Room is an elegant, Regency-style space that also lends itself well to dinners, conferences and receptions for up to 40 guests. Large townhouse windows flood this pale yellow room with light, helping to foster a feeling of warmth amid the grandeur of the ornate fireplace and plasterwork.
The Library also has a capacity of 40 and is decorated in a handsome eau de nil colour which creates a serene atmosphere for classy events. The bookshelves lining the walls (which were made by Sir John Soane and are the first adjustable shelves ever designed) together with the original fireplace add distinguished touches that contribute to the overall high-end feel. This intimate space can be hired for everything from dinners to presentations, interviews and meetings.
Elsewhere, the contemporary Gallery has been designed as an exhibition space and can be hired separately for larger events. The blank space is particularly well-suited to standing receptions, but can also be hired for seated meals for up to 60 guests. The clean white walls, clever lighting and wooden floors provide the backdrop for Asia House’s regular exhibitions, which you can mingle amongst should you wish to hire the space on a private basis.
