The Royal Over-Seas League is one of London’s most historic and unusual private members clubs. Perfect for corporate meetings or small conferences, this building is not only elegant and grandeur, but also comfortable and welcoming with excellent facilities for business events. Just off Green Park in the West End, this venue also boasts an ideal central location.
Grade I listed, this building is regularly used for syndicate workshops, corporate celebrations, exhibitions, seminars, receptions and conferences. The eclectic collection of meeting and events rooms all have period features and views over Green Park. The Royal Over-Seas League is a Commonwealth organisation that has been welcoming diplomats, writers, artists and business people to come together since its doors opened in 1910, and this classical yet corporate venue has a true understanding of what’s needed to execute successful corporate events.
The Princess Alexandra Hall is the most contemporary space in the building, having just been refurbished last year. Complete with clever, hidden integrated AV equipment and finely tuned acoustics, this mode and minimalist space is a simple white rectangular box with a hardwood floor and enormous windows. It provides a very stylish (and rare) blank canvas within a listed building, and holds 200 people in theatre style. The room is bathed in deep blue lighting once the night falls, which creates a really moody and cosmopolitan space for a drinks and canapé reception.
The Hall of India & Pakistan is the largest event room. The silver-grey wood panelled walls are original to the building, and provide a truly sophisticated, classic backdrop to a formal event. The room also has an optional partition wall, which can form 2 smaller meeting rooms upon request. This flexible space can hold a total of 220 people, and has plenty of natural daylight as well as dimmer-controlled lights.
There are 5 break out spaces or seperate meeting rooms here, but The Wrench Room is perhaps the most impressive. Situated at the top of the building, it must be reached by climbing the magnificent James Gibbs staircase, only to be greeted with fantastic views over London. There is also has beautiful skylight with a low hanging crystal chandelier, a huge fireplace and oate original plaster cast wall décor. This room is perfect as a meeting room and holds 20 in boardroom style or 45 in theatre, and it’s also very easy to get to, and therefore perfect as a break out space, from The Hall of India & Pakistan Room.
The clubhouse here offers a stunning formal art deco restaurant which serves lunch and dinner. There’s also a cocktail bar which boasts lovely views over Green Park, and a Buttery restaurant for relaxed and casual light bites. During the summer months, a spot of al fresco dining can be enjoyed out in the private garden, which borders Green Park.
