Taking its inspiration from a 1930s Shanghai speakeasy, high-end Chinese restaurant Park Chinois is among the most spectacular venues in the capital. The dining room is truly a sight to behold, featuring red velvet finishes, flattering lighting and nightly live music. The downstairs Club Chinois is just as appealing, where gold-plated columns set the scene for extravagant cabaret performances.
You would struggle to find a restaurant better suited to big-ticket special occasion private dining than Park Chinois. The Berkeley Street venue is home to three distinct private dining spaces and exclusive hire options. The largest space is Club Chinois, an opulent space with extensive AV equipment, able to host 130 seated guests or 250 standing. Slightly smaller is the Salon de Chine, a formal space for up to 110 seated guests or 200 standing. The Opera, meanwhile, is a semi-private space towards the back of Club Chinois for up to 18 seated guests. The Opera overlooks the space, providing an excellent view for shows.
For more intimate occasions, opt for Salon Rouge, a seductive mix of deep red and shimmering gold which is set within Club Chinois. The room features luxe furnishings including a rectangular Makassar Ebony table, while it can also be accessed privately via Park Chinois’ Dover Street entrance.
The most intimate private dining space at Park Chinois is the exclusive Salon Noir. Seating only nine guests, the room has an old glamour feel, thanks to gorgeous furnishings including a glistening Baccarat chandelier, marble fireplace and a circular ebony table.
Park Chinois offers various set menus for groups, as well as a dedicated vegetarian offering. The Noir Menu, for example, might start with a dim sum platter or a duck salad, while your main course might see crispy chicken with mango sauce and chilli or a 35-day dry-aged Irish ribeye with black pepper and king soya. The Rogue Menu meanwhile, begins with the signature Duck de Chine, before moving on to stir-fried Chilean Wagyu ribeye or grilled seabass.
