We’ve tracked down some of the best private rooms for cool cats in and around Soho
1. The Ivy Soho Brasserie
A London classic with a party twist
Just like at the original in Covent Garden, you can expect a successful blend of homely food and discreet service at the Ivy Soho Brasserie. Befitting of the W1 postcode though, there’s more of a party vibe.
2. Masala Zone Soho
Fun Indian brasserie
Operated by the restaurant group behind Michelin-starred Veeraswamy, Masala Zone offers a more relaxed experience where modern Indian street-food steals the show. Within the main space, there’s a stylish private dining area that can be curtained off.
USP Ultra high-end cool
Coral reef fish tanks are what make the private room at this celeb haven memorable. With its own bar, DJs and a licence of 1.30am, it’s the ideal one-stop-shop for a night of entertaining.
Capacity 14, 40
USP Stylish society spot with art deco touches
A multi-million pound refurb not so long ago means the 1920s favourite still looks fresh. The Prince of Wales and Giovanni private rooms look down onto the main restaurant (which can also be hired exclusively).
Capacity 10, 20
USP Insta-famous Taiwanese buns without the wait
Groups won’t have to queue at the second offering from the bun-steaming sensation. The downstairs space is where to catch the action in the kitchen over your confit pork.
Capacity 10, 14, 28
USP Contemporary Spanish or Japanese – take your pick
Spread over 1,600sq m of event space, the venue’s two restaurants – Aqua Kyoto and Aqua Nueva – both have impressive private dining rooms for small groups. Don’t forget to check out the terrace which looks down onto Oxford Street.
