Shoreditch private dining rooms you don't want to miss
Shoreditch is undoubtedly a contender for claiming the title of London's most foodie area. East London's melting pot benefits from a wide array of nationalities and communities coexisting – and co-cooking. Where else could you find a Georgian cafe rubbing shoulders with a Burmese eatery and High-end Japanese restaurant?
Tangential to the sheer array of cuisines on offer is the equally impressive variety of private dining spaces. Lovingly decorated rooms sectioned off from the main venue offer diners true intimacy and quietude that you just don't get normally.
We've scoured the intricately graffitied streets of Shoreditch to bring you beautiful places in which to eat delicious food. All you have to do is build up an appetite.

7. An industrially aesthetic private dining spot in Shoreditch: FARE
The brainchild of Bethnal Green's Sager + Wilde FARE is an all-day dining establishment and wine bar.

The actual activity, however, takes place in the subterranean dining room, a space with an industrial chic aesthetic complemented with candles on the tables and plants hung from the walls.
Featuring a regularly changing menu consisting of dishes like the Beef Kofta along with a 250-strong wine list, Fare also offers private dining options. Boasting a private dining room downstairs, the space can cater to up to 90 guests and can provide a customised cocktail bar for the occasion if desired.

How to hire a private dining room in Shoreditch
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 private dining rooms. 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.
