THE ARGYLL ROOM – A YEAR-ROUND VENUE
The Argyll Room and Terrace – a year-round venue for your events
No.4 Hamilton Place has spaces to suit all events and occasions, but our most coveted and versatile room is the Argyll. It epitomises the elegance and grandeur of our Edwardian town house, with its high ceilings, huge windows, ornate cornicing and majestic pillars. One of its finest features, however, is its positioning as it adjoins our stunning Terrace via a set of large French windows.
Summer and beyond
Of course the Terrace (with its fabulous views over Hyde Park) makes a perfect setting for any summer party or wedding, but its sheltered position also makes it a great choice for marquee events at any time of the year. When coupled with the Argyll Room, the covered Terrace provides a blank canvas space, perfect for organisers to let loose with their creativity. Whether you want to build a Santa’s grotto or a James Bond-style casino, the Terrace gives clients the opportunity to host a two-stage event with a seamless transition for your guests. A full marquee structure allows the terrace to be a true year-round venue.
Couples tell us it’s the soft lighting and pretty gold detailing on the ceiling and wall reliefs in the Argyll Room that give the space an intimate feeling, perfect for weddings. The room has capacity for 120 for a sit down wedding breakfast and the Terrace offers a fabulous extra space for drinks before the meal. Hyde Park also makes a great backdrop for wedding photos. Outdoor heaters can take the chill out of the air for your guests while still giving them the chance to enjoy the fresh air and bustle of London life beneath them. The proximity of the Argyll Room means there’s an indoor option less than a few feet away should the temperature drop. Winter is also a popular time for weddings at No.4 Hamilton Place as the Argyll Room gives off a great warmth with the lighting and ornate decoration.
The Argyll Room lends itself perfectly to lots of different room layouts and numbers. For receptions and standing barbecues the space fits 200, sit down meals 100 and for theatre-style meetings and wedding ceremonies we can accommodate 120 guests. If you’re holding an event that requires seating in a U-shaped or boardroom formation, we can comfortably fit 40 people in the room or 50 for cabaret set up. All of these capacities give plenty of serving space and room for guests to move easily in and out of their seats. With two huge sets of arched, double doors either side of the room’s main entrance, your event won’t be disturbed as our staff go about their jobs. With fantastic lighting and the large windows the Argyll wows clients as a year-round venue, looking stunning Spring through to Winter.
Some spaces have an undefinable ‘something special’. People tell us time and time again that the Argyll Room is one of these places and while it’s difficult to put your finger on exactly what this quality is, we know there are certain attributes that definitely help. These include floor to ceiling windows which flood the room in natural light. The huge mirrored door and clever up-lighting on the walls and around the pillars also add to the ambience, creating a sense of peace and tranquillity. The wide, winding staircase leading up to the Argyll Room builds a sense of anticipation for guests and we know that the first impressions as the large main door swings open never disappoints.
