Once London’s first purpose-built gymnasium, a £5m renovation has transformed this listed Victorian building into D&D London’s best-looking venue. The ground-floor Grand Café is a neatly arranged art deco affair, dimly lit with light marble floors. At either side of the space, staircases lead you to the more formal mezzanine restaurant, which can be hired on its own and comes with its own entrance. Smaller wedding parties should look to hire the semi-private space on the same level. German-born Bjoern Wassmuth is in charge of the kitchen, where he exerts a middle-European influence.
Book the German Gymnasium exclusively or take over its mezzanine for any event in 2016 and D&D London will give you £500 in Liberty vouchers.
