Scoring a table at this seafood temple on Mount Street can be difficult – which, of course, makes its private dining opportunities all the more appealing. In 2018, Scott’s refurbished its existing private dining room and added another into the fold with the introduction of the Platinum Arowana Room.
Found behind the main restaurant on the ground floor, The Platinum Arowana Room is an intimate private dining space which takes its name from one of the world’s most unique and rare fish. The room can be hired out for business lunches and dinners, as well as personal celebrations or intimate social occasions. The room is a sight to behold, featuring a gorgeous green floor made from semi-precious stone, which is offset by mirror-panelled walls and Lalique lights.
The walls are adorned with works by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Joan Miró, Émile Bernard and Marc Chagall. The room can accommodate between six to eight guests, with parties able to dine from a special à la carte menu which features dishes which are exclusively available to those dining in the Platinum Arowana Room.
It’s not all about the new addition though, as Scott’s has also refurbished its original private dining room. The wood-panelled walls have been swapped out for verre églomisé (gilded and painted glass mirrors) depicting a mock mix of fantastical fish, flora and fauna. The most arresting feature though, is the tropical fish tank bar with its shimmering marble top.
The basement private dining room is suited to medium-sized parties, able to host 24 people on one long table or up to 40 guests on round tables. The space can also be used for standing receptions serving cocktails and canapés, with the room able to hold 50 standing guests.
The space also benefits from an AV kit and Wi-Fi for corporate affairs, while fresh flowers, place cards and candles are all included as standard.
