From its Scandi-chic design to the incredible food and drinks on offer, this venue serves up a seriously sophisticated event. Whether you’re looking for an intimate private dining room, or a unique backdrop for an awards do, here’s why Aquavit London is the perfect spot for your next event!
It’s a beautiful backdrop for drinks
The bar area at Aquavit is truly exceptional, with stunning wood panelling, elegant flora, and turquoise accents that together bring to mind a (very upscale) Swedish lakeside cabin. Featuring tables set around the main marble-topped bar, there’s plenty of space to mingle with guests at the bar and in the venue’s comfortable booths.
With capacity for 250 guests standing, or 100 seated, it’s the ideal location to set the tone for really memorable events, from small award presentations, to retirement dos, and much more.
And a fantastic setting for private dinners
With its sleek decor reflecting the restaurant’s Scandinavian heritage, there are nods to a ‘Hygge’ mentality throughout the venue, which is sure to have your guests feeling relaxed and at ease.
If it’s a balance between sophistication and cosiness you’re looking for, the venue’s Stockholm Room has both in abundance, making this private area a really special spot for a meal. Furnished with natural materials and a warm palette, its soft lighting and intimate layout is perfect for special occasions. And with flexible table configurations, the room can accommodate between 26 and 63 guests dining.
It offers delicious food and drinks
Dinners at Aquavit aren’t everyday affairs: they’re truly experiences that are made to be shared and savoured, with clients, colleagues, or friends.
Inspired by Scandinavian fare, the incredible menus at the restaurant put us in mind of foraged feasts from the forests, and Fjords of our northern neighbours. Boasting main meals like Icelandic cod, fillet steak, Swedish meatballs, and Highland venison, there’s enough in just this section of the menu to make anyone’s mouth water!
But if you’re after something a little more communal, the venue also offers a ‘Smörgåsbord’ option (a selction of dishes served buffet-style), which features the likes of Gravlax, scallops, pickled herrings, and salads with salt-baked beetroot and pickled blackberries. This restaurant makes sure that every meal is a tasting experience that won’t be forgotten in a hurry!
Plus, with a selection of delectable cocktails, wines, and spirits, you’re in safe hands for a sophisticated drinks reception. And to follow, this venue offers a unique treat: a selection of the finest cigars on offer to round off an unforgettable dining experience.
It’s in an ideal location
Located just a stone’s throw from Piccadilly Circus, and within a short walk of Trafalgar Square, Aquavit is in a prime location for lunches, drinks receptions, and everything in between. Ideal for following a conference, meeting, or away day in the city centre, this venue is the perfect balance between style and substance, offering a unique backdrop for truly memorable events.
