The Dorchester Hotel: A Luxury Venue in London

If these walls could talk. From its heyday as a high-end society casino to its modern incarnation as a luxury hotel, The Dorchester has long been favoured as one of the most elegant event venues in the UK. Today, it’s a magnificent setting for luxury weddings and private parties in Mayfair, among London’s most prestigious addresses.

Our international event planners know The Dorchester on Park Lane well: the opulent suites, celebrated chefs, fleet of classic cars and, of course, its special event spaces. From the grand ballroom to the glamorous Crystal Suite with Liberace’s piano at its heart, it forms a beautiful basis for a Scarlet event.

An exclusive London venue for exquisite celebrations


Events at The Dorchester see our clients walking in the footsteps of icons. Over the decades, Elizabeth Taylor, Karl Lagerfeld and Lady Gaga have hosted celebrations here, choosing the Park Lane hotel’s golden age glamour and silver service. The art deco interiors never fail to impress, with original chandeliers and mirrored walls setting a shimmering scene. Today, luxury parties at The Dorchester could mean an unforgettable wedding reception in the Ballroom, or an intimate celebration in The Penthouse and Pavilion, framing Hyde Park views.
