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; the largest is semi-private space, The Opera. Seating up to 18 guests, The Opera is found towards the back of Club Chinois and overlooks the space, allowing for a sense of exclusivity without losing any of the buzz from the main room.
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 two set menus for groups, as well as a dedicated vegetarian offering. If you choose the Noir Menu, your feast will begin with the likes of 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-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 steamed seabass.
