The Westminster Collection is delighted to announce the addition of three stylish venues to membership: The Music Room, InterContinental London Westminster and The Lansdowne Club. These three new member venues bring with them a host of unique features and facilities to further enhance the diversity of our collection’s central London properties, which range from fashionable townhouses and private members clubs, to luxury hotels, celebrated attractions, historic institutes and societies.
Located in the prestigious surroundings of Mayfair, near Bond Street station, The Music Room is a cool, contemporary space flooded with natural daylight, where white walls meet parquet floors to present a space perfect for hosting all manner of ambitious events, such as fashion shows, press launches and receptions for up to 320 people. With scope for personalised theming, the minimalist interior is ideal for event organisers looking for a venue to brand as their own.
There are few hospitality brands in the world as prestigious as InterContinental Hotels, renowned for their exacting standards of excellence and the InterContinental London Westminster is no exception. Located just steps away from St James’ Park tube station, the hotel’s prestigious façade complements a beautifully renovated interior, where 256 individually designed suites and homely rooms meet spectacular dining at Blue Boar Smokehouse and Bar, inspired by the best American pit masters. Seven meeting and events rooms enjoy the latest technologies and are adaptable for both dinner parties and corporate events.
The Lansdowne Club on Fitzmaurice Place is one of London’s most exclusive addresses, combining stunning Art Deco interiors and modern conferencing capabilities for up to 150 theatre style. The beautiful Robert Adam-designed ballroom, with its vaulted ceilings, minstrel galleries and natural daylight, is the perfect location for an evening of fine dining and dancing.
Commenting on her decision to join TWC, venue manager of The Lansdowne Club, Lucy Mannering, said: “As a private members club, we fear that we may not be as ‘on the radar’ as other venues in the Westminster area and there may also be a misconception that our function rooms are only available for our members’ use. In fact, we are very pleased to welcome both members and non-members to use our events and conferencing facilities and we are pleased to have the marketing support of TWC to spread the word amongst potential clients.”
Jonathan Morris, TWC’s membership director and No.11 Cavendish Square’s commercial director, said: “Our brand new website went live in April to provide a very visual and easy-to-navigate portal for event organisers looking for outstanding venues for corporate and private events. These new properties in the Mayfair and St James’s areas demonstrate how TWC venues each have a story to tell in terms of their architecture, client portfolio and event and conferencing capabilities.
“We’re celebrating a decade of TWC this year and exciting plans are well underway for our annual showcase in September, which will look and feel very different from what event planners and agencies have seen in previous years and be greatly enhanced by these new member venues.”
