1. The ultimate Knightsbridge venue: Harvey Nichols

Knightsbridge, London

Harvey Nichols is synonymous with the elect glamour of Knightsbridge. The towering corner-store behemoth dominates the thoroughfares of Knightsbridge Road and Sloane Street. Evolving from the humble linen shop of Benjamin Harvey in 1831, the internationally renowned department store has now established itself as the epitome of Knightsbridge luxury.

Whilst this is all well known, the shopping giant still has a few tricks up its gilded sleeve. Take the Fifth Floor Bar, for example. A sleekly decorated space with its own central island bar and pastel furniture, the bar can provide 80 guests with enough drinks and views to make a party that much extra special. With an impressive menu of drinks and cocktails and space for tastings and masterclasses, the Bar can be hired for private drink receptions, cocktails and canapé parties or corporate events. Night owls rejoice – The Bar is licensed to stay open until 3 am.

Really though, it's all about that name.

2. A Knightsbridge bar to impress: The Hari Hotel Bar & Terrace

Knightsbridge, London

First on the list is The Hari, a 5-star hotel in Knightsbridge with a private-hire bar and all-weather outdoor terrace. The clean glass facade can be found sitting on Chesham Place, just minutes from Sloane Square and Knightsbridge underground stations.

If you are looking for a spot to impress your colleagues, business prospects, or friends and family, look no further: this Knightsbridge bar looks to

impress with its cocktail menu. Stand-out features include the eight “art” cocktails that are all inspired by renowned artworks, and eight “Haritinis”, made from the Hari’s own take on the usual London Dry Gin concoctions.

The whole bar can be hired out, giving you full reign over the velvet booths and danish furniture to yourself.

3. A Knightsbridge bar to enjoy bottomless brunch at: Restaurant Ours

Knightsbridge, London

Set above the restaurant itself, this Knightsbridge bar is decked out in climbing ivy and exposed brickwork, bringing a relaxed, understated vibe.

With seasonally changing cocktails, Saturday night DJs and a range of bar snacks to munch on, you've pretty much got all your bases covered here.

Our recommendation for the cocktail depends, of course, on when you go. Right now we'd opt for the Bonbon; a gin-based drink combining cherries, peaches and flowered soda. Lip-smacking stuff.

4. A Knightsbridge bar where all good things come in three: Layalina & Privée

Knightsbridge, London

All good things come in threes, so it is just fitting that number three on the list has THREE venue options to choose from, all located in the same building. If you’re just in the mood for some delicious Lebanese food and shisha, Layalina should be on your list.

But for a real treat, you should try out Privée - this is not just any bar, it’s a Cabaret & Burlesque bar, where you can enjoy the finest cocktails and food prepared according to seasonal ingredients, whilst enjoying live entertainment.

For those wishing to invite people along to a really unique Knightsbridge experience, why not rent out the entire venue? Sounds to us as if you can’t go wrong with this Knightsbridge bar.

5. A Knightsbridge bar that’s historic and unique: The Alfred Tennyson

Knightsbridge, London

Stormed at with shot(s) and Ale,

Boldly they drunk and well,

Into the jaws of Death,

Into the mouth of hell(es)

Rode the six hundred...

Do you really think we could write about a bar with Tennyson in the name without crudely rewriting these classic lines? Of course we couldn't.

The Alfred Tennyson is a great all-rounder bar situated in the heart of Knightsbridge. It's part up-market local, part restaurant, serving oysters and hand-pulled ales – which, believe us, is a match made in heaven.

This being Knightsbridge, the bar's interiors are classy, with light flooding the bar area. It's tempting to spend the whole day – so long as you've got the cash.

How to hire bar in Knightsbridge

We know that finding a venue the old-fashioned way (where you trawl the internet, contact 10 venues or set your heart on one, only to find that they're out of your price range and not even available on your dates) is a pain, and there are a few pitfalls between you and booking your perfect bar. Getting the venue-finding process down to a professional art is what we’ve made our mission ever since we took on the events industry. We often get asked the same questions, so here's what we recommend to quickly and easily hire a space in Knightsbridge.

Frequently asked questions

For bars in Knightsbridge, you're spoilt for choice. Here are a few extra special ones that we vouch for:

Harvey Nichols – More than just a department store, you'll find that their Fifth Floor Bar is as stylish as you'd expect.

Restaurant Ours – Head upstairs for seasonal cocktails, live music, and your choice of decadent bar snacks.

There really is no one answer to this question: so many variables come into play when understanding the cost of exclusive hire of a bar or a private space in a bar. How many guests are you planning for? Is the venue for the day, an afternoon, or the night? The good news is that you can find a venue for pretty much any budget (okay, almost any budget). Instead of letting the venue dictate the price, our advice is to be proactive and set a budget that you feel comfortable with – this way the right venues can reach out to you through HeadBox.

There are lots of ways to book a Knightsbridge bar. You can do the old-fashioned thing and pick up the phone, or email the venue directly. Unfortunately, lots of venues are busy and may not get back to you in time. That's where we come in. Give us your enquiry and we'll reach out to the best bars in Knightsbridge and let you enjoy your free time. Easy.
