We’ve tracked down some of the best private rooms for cool cats in and around Soho

27 Restaurant and Bar Crown Aspinalls mayfair west end london venues restaurants dining tables

1. 27 Restaurant & Bar, W1J
Capacity 20 
USP British produce for an international cuisine  

Better than the no-hiring fee for the private dining room here is the large team of specialised chefs. They use British produce to deliver modern European, Middle Eastern, Indian, Chinese and Japanese cuisine late into the night. 

Masala Zone Soho Indian restaurant London

2. Masala Zone Soho, W1F
Capacity 22
USP 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. 

Sexy Fish - private dining room

3. Sexy Fish, W1J
Capacity 48
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.


4. Bocconcino, W1J
Capacity 100
USP Italian food with charm

The bold and hi-spec interior design of this place (the patterned ceiling in the private dining room is mesmerising) makes this Mayfair restaurant a proper classy spot. But it’s the way the kitchen staff bustle around the pizza oven and that add the real charm.

Bao Fitzrovia - venue hire

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.

Aqua Kyoto - venue hire

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.
