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 room. 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 Soho.
Determine your budget: Before you start looking for a private dining room, decide on your budget. This will help you narrow down your options and avoid overspending.
Choose a location: Soho is a popular area with many private dining room options, so it's important to decide on the location that suits you best. Consider factors such as accessibility, parking, and nearby attractions.
Determine the number of guests: Knowing the number of guests will help you choose a private dining room that accommodates your group comfortably. Ensure that the room is not too small, so your guests don't feel cramped, or too large, so the atmosphere doesn't feel empty.
Choose the type of cuisine: Most private dining rooms offer a variety of cuisines, so choose the one that suits your event. It's important to consider any dietary requirements or food allergies of your guests when making this decision.
Research and compare options: Once you have an idea of your budget, location, guest count, and cuisine, start researching private dining room options in Soho. You can use search engines, and online directories, or ask for recommendations from friends or colleagues.
Check the room amenities: Consider the amenities that come with the private dining room, such as audio-visual equipment, Wi-Fi, a private bar, and special lighting. Check if the room has windows or outdoor access, so guests can enjoy a view or fresh air.
Arrange a site visit: Before booking a private dining room, arrange a site visit to view the space in person. This will help you determine if the room meets your expectations, ask questions, and get a feel for the atmosphere.
Confirm the booking: Once you have chosen a private dining room, confirm the booking and ensure that all the details are clear. Be sure to read and understand the terms and conditions of the booking and make any necessary deposits.
Plan the menu: Work with the restaurant team to plan the menu and make any necessary arrangements for dietary requirements or food allergies.
Confirm the final details: A few days before the event, confirm the final details with the restaurant, including the guest count, menu, and any special requests. This will ensure that everything runs smoothly on the day of the event.
