Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings
We’ve put a lot of effort and love into making B&H Buildings a truly special place for all occasions. From cocktail fuelled after parties, album showcases and product launches, to long, impressive client lunches and boozy brunches, private meetings or raucous parties, B&H Buildings is our playground created for those who, like us, crave a space to eat, drink and be merry from dawn to dusk.
Featuring five distinct areas with varied eating, drinking and dancing spaces, B&H Buildings takes its inspiration from the faded grandeur of a stately home. We’ve combined unusual textures and modern shades with trailing plants and rich fabrics to produce a highly original space perfect for anyone wanting to impress clients to those of you who just want to sink into a beautiful armchair with a bloody good Mary.
THE GARDEN ROOM AND GREENHOUSE
Walk through the bar, past the café, and you find yourself at the back of the building amongst a lush of greenery. The Garden Room and Greenhouse capture the impression of an abandoned country house, where the gardens and state-rooms have slowly grown into one another and gone to seed. Mixing soft furnishings and armchairs with cane garden furniture and wrought iron benches, the whole space is filled with hanging baskets, full grown trees and trailing creepers, effectively bringing the outside in and offering a relaxing but decorous dining experience.
Serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between, these rooms are perfect for dinner parties, cocktail receptions and showcases alike.
The Greenhouse caters for those special occasion dinners for up to 22 guests and can be made completely private from the rest of the restaurant via beautiful French doors.
Featuring bentwood mahogany and wicker booths, the Café area offers a cosy median between bustling bar and more formal restaurant. This versatile space is perfect for casual dining, catch-up drinks and informal meetings.
Occupying the sunny west-facing side of the building, the Bar at B&H Buildings opens onto the street and the leafy park beyond via huge windows and doors. The Bar is ideal for daytime coffees, after-work drinks and informal gatherings. Influenced by those typically seen in a Grand Café, the beautiful marble mosaic bar top itself offers a generous and informal perch for guests wishing to sit closer to the action. A bar menu of snacks and canapés is available for bookings, although guests in smaller parties are also very welcome to order from the a la carte restaurant menu.
THE PRIVATE DINING ROOM
A beautiful room, lined floor to ceiling with antique display cabinets full of bottles of boutique spirits and fine alcohol. In the middle, a large and comfortable dining table and stunningly upholstered stately chairs, covered with the unmistakable Mulberry print. Perfect for meetings and private dining parties alike, The Bottle Room provides a relaxed and intimate setting for up to 12 guests.
BELOW & HIDDEN
Below & Hidden is our late-night clubroom concealed beneath the restaurant and bar, a secret drinking and dancing den for discerning night owls.
As the night unfolds, the luxurious tapestry-covered walls will reveal floor to ceiling LED light panels, illuminating the beat. Tables are small and so easy to be strategically cast aside, along with any remaining inhibitions, allowing guests to relax, let their hair down and hit the dance floor, secure in the knowledge they are safely hidden below the streets of Clerkenwell.
Adorned with plants hanging from the high beams, The B&H Kitchen has been lovingly and carefully designed. From the beautifully constructed Chef’s table in the centre of the room to the white washed walls and hanging festoons, B&H Kitchen is the perfect space for dinner parties, private functions and entertaining clients.
