A diverse selection of Chelsea private dining venues

Chelsea–you either live there or you go there for a football match. We doubt our audience belongs in either camp. If you live in Chelsea you can probably afford to have someone arrange a private dinner for you. If you’re a regular at Stamford Bridge you’re probably going to be more interested in pubs than private dining. Probably. There are always exceptions.

We exaggerate, of course. Sloane Square has the fantastic Royal Court Theatre and the King’s Road is a shopping destination that draws in many, but the calibre of shopping here is pretty swanky, as are the cafés, bars, and restaurants.

As mentioned, you’re probably not in either of the aforementioned groups, but it stands to reason that if you’re reading this then you’re interested in upscale private dining and so we’ve made it our business to source diverse Chelsea private dining rooms for you.
