Covent Garden, WC2E


Covent Garden, WC2E

The Space

A sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of the city, Petersham Nurseries Covent Garden offers a unique lifestyle destination in the heart of central London. Two restaurants, a delicatessen, florist and lifestyle shop are all united by Floral Court, offering a variety of opportunities to suit any occasion. 

La Goccia is a vibrant restaurant with an open kitchen, wood fired oven, large grill and dining bar. A section of the restaurant offers semi-private dining for up to 30 guests. This space sits under the kitchen, which keeps the atmosphere vibrant and the backdrop exciting. Guests are invited to choose from one of our set menus. 

La Goccia Bar which features a hand made iron bar is the perfect venue for a standing reception. The short end of the L Shaped space provides a cosy sofa section which can hold up to 30-35 guests standing. Tucked away from the length of the bar, your guests will be invited to use the bar garden entrance exclusively, so the space feels intimate. For larger parties, full hire of the bar can home a maximum of 70 guests. The bar allows for casual seating, lounging and dancing if desired. We have a wonderful in-house Dj that can play for your party, just let us know and we will put you in touch. Your standing party are invited to dine from our canape menu.

La Goccia Bar is adjoining to The Shop, which offers seated dining for up to 70 guests or provides an extension to your standing party. Please see our profile for full details.
