About City Social

SquareMeal Review

Stunning views, Michelin-starred food and an address that’ll earn you instant kudos, Jason Atherton’s City Social is at the top end of London’s private dining scene. Located on the twenty-fourth floor of prominent skyscraper Tower 42, City Social is a magnificent venue which houses two handsome private dining rooms, a chef 's table and exclusive hire options for the ultimate celebratory dinner or corporate event.

Sleek art-deco interiors and an impressive lighting feature characterise the Private Dining Room at City Social, which can seat between 16 and 24 guests for lunch or dinner around a rectangular table. A similar aesthetic can be found in the Private Dining Suite which, like the slightly smaller Private Dining Room, boasts spectacular views of the capital from its floor-to-ceiling windows and a low-key luxe ambience.

Unlike chef’s tables in other restaurants, this one is completely private, allowing for theatre and privacy in equal measure. Seating just 11, the chef’s table enjoys the same dazzling views across London as City Social’s other private dining spaces, with the added interest of a window into the busy kitchen. Here you can witness your meal being prepared by chef patron Jason Atherton and/or his team of talented chefs, using the best of British ingredients – a rare and fascinating treat.

There are a number of menus available for private events, depending on budget and preference. Those hosting standing receptions can choose from the canapé or bowl food menus, with the option to include Champagne for each guest as part of a welcome package, while seated parties can opt for the set lunch, set dinner or tasting menu. Whichever package you go for, you can be sure of dishes made from familiar seasonal ingredients, cooked and presented with confidence and finesse at this SquareMeal Gold Award-rated restaurant.
