1. The ultimate Knightsbridge venue: Harvey Nichols
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.
