Dinner dances in central London

Whatever it is you’re celebrating at your dinner dance, it deserves to be held in a truly special place. Congress Centre is a stunning venue, crammed with striking, 1950s modernist features and it perfectly suits a night of fine dining and fabulous music for up to 320 guests.

The food

Our kitchens are renowned for their creative and innovative menus. Head Chef, Damon Shorland, places huge importance on using seasonal ingredients and always puts flavour at the top of his agenda. The three-course, sit-down dinner packages he and his team produce are based on traditional, European cuisine but with a unique twist.

If you have a particular catering theme in mind, Damon is always happy to discuss your ideas and work with you to produce a bespoke menu for your event. He and his team are also expert at injecting a little bit of theatre into their catering by turning live cooking stations into experiences for your guests.

The space

Our largest space, Congress Hall, is so much more than just a beautiful room. It comes fully-equipped with state-of-the-art AV equipment including an 18ft drop down screen, HD projector and intelligent lighting plus a stage for live music or a DJ. The timber sprung floor is the final touch in making what has to be one of the most well-equipped and stunning spaces in which to host a dinner dance.


Hiring Congress Hall gives organisers a dedicated registration area and cloakroom, plus the option of several drinks reception spaces. You will also be given a dedicated, in-house event planner who will help you make your event everything you hoped for and more.
