The venue has a Gaudy-esque feel and its layout is interconnected with archways and bridges making it a very unique and fairytale-like setting. Its bespoke furnishings, chandeliers and intimate open fires complete the warm and luxurious feel.
As you walk through the imposing white doors, you enter into the bright bar, ideal for a light lunch in front of the open fire or early evening cocktails with friends.

The Ballroom is ideal for private dining for up to 60 guests or elaborate Champagne and canapé receptions for up to 110.

Beach Blanket Babylon Reviews
Crap service Delays Paucity if vegetarian options (told to have broccoli by waitress as option) Truly pitiful Food - waited at least 30 minutes before even being informed about further delays in servi... more »
This place is a joke! We were a party of 6 that have booked in advantage. We waited for two hours without getting any of the food we’ve ordered. NOT RECOMMENDED IT’S A WASTE OF TIME more »
This will forever be linked to the memory of reconnecting with my long lost cousin after 35 years. Wonderful atmosphere. Great host/bartender. My sister and cousin enjoyed their drinks. It is set in a swanky section of London. Good looking people came through while we were there.
I attended the Beach Blanket Babylon for London Fashion Week February 2019. Such a grand, extravagant, luxurious location. Every part unique, and more interesting than the next. Plenty of space along with all the unique features. Can't recommend highly enough.
