Winchester House is a stunning venue that has seen more than its fair share of cocktail parties since it was established as a sought-after private members club in the 19th century. And while the music and the dress codes may have changed, much is still the same. Guests adore the splendid grounds surrounding Winchester House. They still dance till the small hours of the morning in the Grand Hall, and the library has seen hours of intimate discussions.
As venues for cocktail parties go, this one is glorious. The building and gardens have been designed with numerous attractive spaces of different capacities to suit different sized parties. The outdoor space can host a marquee or is perfect for sipping fine wines on the lawn at summer soirees. Indoors you can host everything from a sit down meal to champagne towers to small tete-a-tetes. The venue’s recent refurbishment not only means we have the technical facilities to host presentations and DJ booths in a historic setting. It has been designed to maintain its decadence, while also being a blank canvas for you to add your own personal touch to.
We will always have a bevy of events coordinators available for you, whose sole role is to make your cocktail party one to remember.
As they’re old hands at hosting, they know what makes a party go from merely a fun night out to the talk of the town.
Our dedicated teams will work by your side to, not only ensure your cocktail party goes smoothly, but can also iron out any hiccups if they do occur.
Cocktail parties can come in all shapes and sizes. Some are a civilised affair, some can be raucous, themed cocktail parties and then there’s corporate cocktail parties - which in our experience can fit into either category!
Perhaps it’s a quiet corporate cocktail party you plan to host? Maybe you’re looking to host a celebratory event that will be the talk of the town?
