Three Intimate Drinks Reception Venues

At Hire Space, we feel that an intimate events space is not always determined by size, but the connection you feel with the venue. James Roche hopes you feel a special bond with today's blog as he brings you ... three intimate reception venues for hire.

The Pine Room at The Westbury Hotel Mayfair

Whether it's a team meeting in The Broadway Room, a conference in The Gallery or a private dining experience in the Guggenheim Room, the
Westbury Hotel Mayfair has that rare knack of creating the most intimate of atmospheres, regardless of the event size. There are 10 spaces for hire, including the exquisite Pine Room, ideal for your next reception.

With wooden furnishings and French Renaissance-style touches, you'll immediately feel at ease within this warm and inviting events space. From a daytime canape reception to a relaxed evening presentation, The Pine Room is as intimate as a pottery class with Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze.

The Dar Lazrak at Kenza Restaurant and Lounge

Speaking of Patrick Swayze, did you hear that his co-star on Point Break, Gary Busey beat up one of the crewmen on the set for cutting in line at lunch? If you're after a less confrontational, more intimate dining experience, or are simply scared after that story, then you'll love the calm atmosphere and privacy of the Dar Lazrak room at Kenza Restaurant and Lounge.

Grab your friends and tuck into some deliciously spiced mezze, sample some of the classic cocktails on offer or unwind over a cup of fresh mint tea - all in the privacy of your own intimate dining space.

Richard Hennessey Dining Room at Searcys The Gherkin

Did you see Patrick Swayze in Road House? Pure cinematic gold. You won't see too many roundhouse kicks during your visit to [The Gherkin], but you will be treated to first-class, 360-degree views of the City when you book your next meeting or reception at the wonderfully intimate Richard Hennessey Dining Room at Searcy's The Gherkin.

Comfort and attention to detail are hallmarks of any Searcy's experience and it's certainly no different inside the Richard Hennessey Dining Room. Loosen up proceedings with a delectable cocktail, trade in your notepad for a plate of gourmet grub, sit back and enjoy the view atop this fine reception venue.
