Spotlight on the Drawing Room

A favourite of staff, organisers and visitors alike, the Drawing Room at Merchant Taylors’ Hall is one of our most enchanting rooms. The Chinese silk wallpaper, stunning chandeliers and huge windows all come together to create an inspiring space which lends itself to a host of different events. Read on to see if it might be the right fit for anything coming up in your calendar.

Private dining

The Drawing Room comfortably fits 80 on round tables and is a truly special place in which to hold a celebration dinner. The soft pastel palette of the décor, especially when the room is lit for an evening event, creates an ambience you and your guests will cherish for years to come. Merchant Taylors’ Hall is synonymous with fine dining and there’s nothing our Head Chef, Angeline Pages, loves more than working with clients to create memorable menus for special occasions.


It’s no surprise that the Drawing Room is particularly popular with couples tying the knot at Merchant Taylors’ Hall. Brides and grooms often comment on how romantic a setting the space sets for wedding photographs. The rooms also works brilliantly as an elegant dressing room for the bridal party to get ready before the nuptials take place.

Adjoining space

A key feature of the Drawing Room is its position next to the stunning King’s Gallery. When used in conjunction these spaces offer a fabulous combination for an all-day event. The King’s Gallery can cater for up to 50 for a standing buffet and benefits from floor to ceiling windows, which give a wonderful view over the Great Hall.

Conferences and meetings

If you need an environment that will inspire and excite your guests, you can’t beat the Drawing Room at Merchant Taylors’. The beauty of the room – its gold-trimmed cornicing, stunning ceiling relief and luxurious soft furnishings – is enhanced by the natural light which floods the room from its huge windows. Make sure your speakers are given the best possible surroundings in which to deliver their content, by booking a space that does them justice.


A stunning setting will always help break the ice at a drinks reception. The Drawing Room is an exceptional space that will unite your guests in admiration. They will also enjoy looking out over the pretty Courtyard Garden, a perfect way to bring the outside in when the weather’s not quite up to an outdoor party.
