We’re going all majestic with our venue of the week this week, as we’ve chosen an incredible space dating back to the 19th Century… Il Bottaccio!
Il Bottaccio is an elegant and classic French Renaissance building, situated on the edge of Hyde Park Corner. The venue makes the perfect choice for dinners, wine tasting, receptions, business meetings, corporate events, fashion shows, exhibitions and much more.
Thanks to its glitzy decor and premium location, Il Bottaccio has hosted many a high profile event in its time, including events for L’Oreal, London Fashion Week, the BBC and Deutsche Bank.
Within the venue are two galleries and two entrances, making it a flexible venue suitable for almost any occasion. A sophisticated but light grand gallery provides either a simple backdrop to your event or a neutral setting perfect for bespoke decoration.
Flooding the room with light are its floor length windows, which illuminate the high ceilings, white panelled walls and polished wooden floor. The stunning simplicity of the Grand Gallery has made it a favourite location for exclusive fashion shows for over a decade.
White walls provide clean backdrops that allow dramatic lighting installations to steal the show, and also enable photographers to capture brilliant action shots.
In contrast, the Club Gallery offers a more sumptuous area in which to indulge your guests. The oak panelled room is lined with wine racks and furnished with luxurious red curtains and carpets. The Club Gallery is made for a wine tasting, reception, lunch, dinner or, down-to-business meeting. Whereas the Grand Gallery may host up to 400 guests, the Club Gallery hosts a more intimate 150 standing guests or 60 seated guests.
