About The Zetter Clerkenwell

Description

The Zetter Townhouse is a characterful boutique hotel in the heart of Clerkenwell, known for its colourful interiors and fascinating history. Set on a charming square close to Farringdon station, the Georgian townhouse was originally the home of Wilhelmina Zetter and her affluent family, who owned a factory in the area.

When Wilhelmina inherited her family's fortune she chose, instead of settling down, to travel the world and on her adventures collected treasures which she decorated the house with on her return. While in town, she hosted lavish, all-night soirees and showed off the artworks, furniture and decorations from other countries, many of which still stud the walls of the townhouse today. 

Today, the venue is a homage to Wilhelmina's wanderlust and flamboyant taste with eccentric decor spanning a taxidermy kangaroo donning a pair of boxing gloves to ornately handpainted walls. As well as the lobby and hotel, the townhouse boasts two private dining spaces which are perfect for hosting a big birthday, brand event, corporate dinner or overdue get-together. 

The Games Room has capacity for 23 when dining on one central table, 36 for a sit-down dinner across multiple tables or 50 for a standing drinks reception. The blue and cream colour scheme and period flourishes create a pretty, historic aesthetic which works beautifully for a wedding, baby shower or all night party with plenty of room for mixing with guests. 

If an intimate dinner is what you had in mind, The Drawing Room offers a dramatic, atmospheric backdrop for one hell of a dinner party. With rich, crimson walls and soft, glowy lighting, this room brings a sense of theatre to any occasion. The regency-style dining table comes straight from Wilhelmina's own collection and can comfortably sit 12 people around it, or the room can hold 24 people when standing.

Testimonials For The Zetter Clerkenwell

Thank youMARCH, 2023

Hi Vesta, Thank you again for your support in organizing ABN AMRO’s event yesterday at Zetter Townhouse. The food was fantastic, and everyone very much commented on the diversity of menu and quality of the meal. Thank you to the chef/kitchen because this was a real highlight.

Thank youFEBRUARY, 2023

Hi Both Thanks for a great day at our workshop. I thought the venue was lovely, all the staff were really friendly and helpful and professional.   The food was really good – a few thought the portions were quite large e.g. mini tarts rather than full sized would be enough with sandwiches and salad.   Very nice flavours though – and salad was nice a fresh.

Thank youOCTOBER, 2022

Dear Marie, I hope you’re well I just wanted to send you a, very belated, note of thanks to you and your team for hosting us last month. The event in the Games Room was a huge success. I have had lots of positive feedback from colleagues and clients that the entire experience at Zetter Townhouse was exceptional, with great food, service and a brilliant atmosphere. I also had the pleasure of dropping by this weekend for an evening cocktail in the bar upstairs and was once again very happy with my choice of venue for the evening. Please pass on my thanks to the team and many thanks to you for helping us coordinate the entire event
