The 8 best private dining rooms in Mayfair

There is an intrinsic elitism that comes with private dining.

It's in the act of sequestering yourself away from the slurping masses; it's erecting a byzantine maze of walls, doors and partitions between you and the rest of humanity; it's Mayfair.

The unarguable epicentre of London aristocratic excess, Mayfair, of course, has many, many private dining rooms. Here are some.

2. Sophisticated Italian private dining and a selection of the world's finest cigars: Sparrow Italia Mayfair

Mayfair, London

Sparrow Italia is a stylish, modern restaurant, sleek and chic with touches of green foliage that evoke an Italian greenhouse. It boasts a central location in Mayfair and offers ground-floor, first-floor, and second-floor dining areas. The first floor offers a skylight ceiling and a large marble bar, and the dining room seamlessly spills into an indoor garden. 

Dine under trees on the first floor or sip cocktails on the ground floor. Venture up to the third floor and indulge in a cigar in one of London's finest cigar lounges.

The most intimate space for private dining is located on the second floor. With a wall-to-wall six-seat bar and floor-to-ceiling drapery. This private dining room comes complete with a curated playlist and is a swish little setting to enjoy Italian fine dining, artful cocktails, and that sophisticated Mayfair ambiance.

3. A Mayfair private dining experience is elite to its roots: Hide and Seek

Mayfair, London

Hide is uniquely modelled on a tree's structure. Its spiralling wooden staircase figures as the trunk which connects its four beautiful dining spaces.

Hidden in the subterranean ‘roots’ are two private dining rooms; Ideal for groups of 4-8, these intimate spaces are carefully designed for the cosiest of dinners (and are situated right next to the impressive below-ground bar).

Within Hide’s sanctuary, seasonal food is served from the à la carte menu alongside a wine to match. Whether it be the Barbecued native lobster, pickled fennel & spiced butter or the Tempura Cornish monkfish with girolles, private dining will be a pleasure.

4. Luxury private dining for people who like to scroll: Sketch

Mayfair, London

Since opening in 2002, Sketch has become a byword in London for a place people go to lift their phones in front of their faces.

Everything, from the absurd egg toilets to the five separate private dining spaces, has been calibrated to appear on the overly curated Instagram page of your most irritating colleague.

Whilst we concede it's beautiful, and the food is okay, it's also a tad overrated (okay more than a tad). But hey, lots of things are overrated.

5. Share duck, privately in Mayfair: MiMi Mei fair

Mayfair, London

This Georgian townhouse follows the story of the fictional and mysterious empress MiMi and MiMi Mei Fair is the result. A lavish venue that celebrates Chinese culinary arts.

Scott’s encompasses old-school Mayfair and its private dining offering is no different. With a distinct 1920s vibe, Scott's menu is famed for its seafood and this is mirrored in its decor.

The Private Room is surrounded by panels of gilded and painted glass mirrors depicting various sea creatures, in addition to a marble-topped fish tank bar.

Design your own bespoke menu and wine pairings with the help of a sommelier. Step back into the gilded champagne-popping era with your chosen pals.

7. Mayfair's ethical grill spot: Gridiron by Como

Mayfair, London

Gridiron is a Park Lane grill spot that places a heavy emphasis on ethically-sourced ingredients, with a considered balance between meat, native fish and veg. This is not just a zeitgeisty tagline – the produce on the grill here has clearly been thought about, with things like Isle of Mull rib of beef and Turbot showcasing the best of the British Isles.

If the above sounds a bit heavy, then you don't have to despair. The lighter alternatives are abound with burnt leek and hazelnut aillade, crab toast with lardo, wood-roasted scallops with spicy XO sauce, and red mullet with gentleman’s relish (stop laughing - it's a sort of anchovy paste).

For private dining, you can sit 55 in the restaurant, with room for 80 standing.
