The Space x

A penthouse private dining room with a stunning balcony overlooking the river Thames and central London skyline.

Swan’s light and airy Balcony Room is an exclusive venue in London with remarkable views of the iconic riverside. Floor to ceiling French windows open onto the private balcony with its backdrop of St Paul’s Cathedral, the Thames, and the Globe theatre.

This unique space has lift access, its own private bar and cloakroom and can accommodate up to 70 people for a sit down affair, or up to 120 standing guests.

The stylish Balcony Room, with its elegant, panelled green walls, statement chandelier and abundant natural light, can be hired for private event celebrations, corporate meetings, and dinners.

The long wooden table – handmade from an oak tree that fell in the Great Storm of 1987 – is just the thing for board meetings and convivial private lunches or dinners. On the walls are twenty prints of Henri Matisse’s ‘Jazz’. These brightly coloured pictures were originally intended as covers for French art magazine ‘Verve’ and were inspired by the circus and the theatre.

Impossibly romantic – and with our Shakespearean links, how could it not be? – the space is also licensed for weddings.
