A library space perfect for meetings, seminars, receptions, dinners and afternoon tea!

"We're late, we're late for a very important date...." We decided for our drop-in session at SixtyOne Whitehall an Alice in Wonderland theme would do quite nicely! We decked out the library with raspberry macaroons, finger sandwiches, sponge pop cakes, strawberry tarts and more. Of course there was plenty of tea and sparkling wine for everyone too.
The capacity of the library at SixtyOne Whitehall allows a reception for 100 guests, theatre style lecture for 80 and formal dinner for 66. Larger events can take place in the Duke of Wellington Hall which allows 200 for a reception, 180 theatre style and 110 for a formal dinner. If a smaller room is required then the Reading Room, across the landing from the library, is perfect for a reception for 80 while taking 50 for both formal dinners and theatre style meetings. We find that guests often hire out a few different spaces so they can move from their seminar or meeting into a pre-set reception room for wine and nibbles.
The location of SixtyOne is undeniably perfect with Trafalgar Square / Covent Garden on its right and Westminster on its left! That's a lot of tube stations and buses to utilise.
Here's some pictures of our event last night:
