“Let us celebrate the occasion with wine and sweet words”
Fine dining is an art. To appreciate the culinary delights offered by a master chef takes an extraordinary palate. To choose the perfect setting for your special celebration requires thought and discernment.
At Beyond Curated we invite you to make unforgettable memories with Michelin-starred private dining paired with exceptional experiences in the city’s glittering national treasures, such as The National Gallery, The Victoria and Albert Museum, The Natural History Museum, Leighton House and The Tower of London. Not forgetting the refined private dining rooms within London’s most beautiful hotels, steeped in the tradition of grace and grandeur, discover their hidden spaces whilst unlocking worlds of culinary bliss.
Exquisite London Awaits Your Pleasure
The National Gallery is among the most visited museums in the world, showcasing breathtaking works including paintings by Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Turner and Rembrandt to mention but a few. Looking out onto Trafalgar Square, your unique experience of fine dining amongst the hallowed company of Masters awaits.
At the 1899 opening ceremony for the Victoria and Albert Museum, Queen Victoria’s address ended with, “I trust that it will remain for ages a monument of discerning liberality and a source of refinement and progress.” The museum has certainly lived up to that, as the first museum in Britain to present a rock concert in 1973, and participates in the Discover Islamic Art project along with only 17 other museums in Europe. Covering 12.5 acres and 145 galleries in South Kensington, its collection spans 5,000 years of art. We invite you to make your own history by dining in these splendid surroundings.
Of priceless worth to the nation and to the world, the Natural History Museum in South Kensington is home to over 80 million life and earth science specimens and is recognised as the foremost centre of natural history and research in the world. Famous for its exhibition of dinosaur skeletons and ornate architecture, the iconic museum is sometimes called a cathedral of nature. An awe-inspiring setting for your special occasion.
Opening to the public in 1929, Leighton House Museum is the former home of the Victorian artist Frederic, Lord Leighton (1830-1896). Distinguished by its sumptuous Orientalist and aesthetic interiors, Leighton House Museum contains a fascinating collection of paintings and sculpture by Leighton and his contemporaries. Its lavish pseudo-Islamic court has been featured in several films in the 20th century. Leighton House is the only remaining home of the famous Holland Park Circle, a small community of celebrated artists who built their homes and studios close to one another in the mid-19th century. We invite you to step into one of the 19th century’s most remarkable buildings and dine surrounded by the fine work and echoes of key English artists in this tasteful and unique building – the masterful expression of a true British eccentric.
Officially Her Majesty’s Royal Palace, The Tower of London has also been London’s fortress stronghold and dates back to 1066 during the Norman Conquest of England. Playing a very important role in English and British history, The Tower of London sits imposingly on the north bank of the River Thames in central London, watching over the wide winding river that flows through the capital city into the North Sea. It has undergone many transformations over the centuries and today remains the home of the Crown Jewels of England. Its power to fascinate doesn’t fade and we invite you to experience the hushed mystery of this World Heritage site as the gates are closed to tourists and opened to Beyond Curated guests. Glittering history, the rarity of the Crown Jewels and fine dining in this iconic London landmark are yours for the taking.
The Grand Dames of London anticipate your gracious presence
London has a fine tradition of grace and splendour and it is often best expressed in its elegant hotels, such as the iconic Connaught Hotel with its Sommelier’s Table at the 2-Michelin Star Helene Darroze restaurant, Michelin-starred Céleste restaurant at the luxurious Regency style The Lanesborough, the last family-owned luxury London hotel, the quintessentially British The Goring, with its Michelin-starred restaurant, or last but not least – the historic gilded room of the Oscar Wilde Lounge at the Hotel Café Royal. We invite you to experience these grand dames with a special Beyond Curated twist of elegance and delight.
As you step into the refined and elegant world that is the Connaught Hotel, history, beauty and originality swirl around you. At the hub of Mayfair Village since the early part of the 19th century, the hotel was renamed in 1917 in honour of Queen Victoria’s third son, the first Duke of Connaught. In the Connaught’s private dining room adjoining the limestone wine cellar we invite you to experience the exquisite pairing of the hotel’s wines from its world-famous cellars, and 2-Michelin Star meals from the award-winning Helene Darroze. The Connaught’s take on the Chef’s Table, the Sommelier’s Table, is a perfect complement to your dazzling day in London arranged by Beyond Curated.
Arriving at the Lanesborough is an unmissable experience. Situated in one of London’s prettiest locations, opposite Hyde Park, the opulent Recency style grand mansion is a short stroll from Harrods, Sloane Street and Knightsbridge. The Céleste at the Lanesborough is becoming one of London’s most celebrated addresses, boasting a modern French dining concept whilst championing British gastronomic traditions and produce. Whether you’re sitting under the soft natural light provided by the domed glass roof by day or dining under its glittering chandeliers in the Céleste’s richly decorated dining room at night, or even choose to dine in their fine cellars, you’ll be cosseted in the best possible way. Why not add a touch of whimsical indulgence to your special day and dine at one of London’s most luxurious hotels as part of your Beyond Curated experience?
London’s last family-owned grand luxury hotel, The Goring, is a quintessentially British experience of grace and refinement, elegantly crafted by the Goring family over the last century in its gracious Belgravia setting. With its Michelin-starred restaurant, The Goring is well known for the best of Britain’s exceptional food and we invite you to experience its culinary splendour in elegantly refined private rooms as part of your Beyond Curated special celebrations in the heart of the capital.
Perfectly situated between creative Soho and elegant Mayfair, the Oscar Wilde Lounge at the Hotel Café Royal continues over 150 years of tradition as being London’s living room for some of the most famous and interesting individuals in the world of literature, music and sport. A place to fall in love, as Oscar Wilde did here with Lord Alfred Douglas, and to celebrate the victories of life in elegant surroundings. We invite you to dine in the company of great minds in one of London’s most historic and iconic rooms.
That’s what we call unforgettable.
