Royal Opera House

The magnificent Royal Opera House, with its grand classical portico fronting Bow Street, is the third theatre built on the Covent Garden site. Home to two of the world’s great artistic companies – The Royal Opera and The Royal Ballet, performing with the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House. 

The venue has a range of unique spaces available for hire. The Crush Room has been fully restored to its original gilded splendour. The 17th century Flemish artworks and crystal chandeliers are said to be made from the original chandelier that once hung in the centre of the auditorium. The room perfectly captures the historical splendour of the Royal Opera House and offers an impressive venue for smaller conferences, launches and lunches.

The Conservatory, previously only open to our patrons, is now available to hire on performance nights for the first time in our history. Situated above the old carriage walkway on Bow Street, the room with its barrelled roof and elegant floor to ceiling windows is ideal for small drinks receptions and intimate dinners.

Located on the top floor of the Royal Opera House and overlooking the Paul Hamlyn Hall, the Amphitheatre level is a hugely flexible modern space. The Amphitheatre Restaurant is a fantastic contemporary room which can be used for lunches, conferences or as a breakout space for larger conferences.

The Amphitheatre Bar is an ideal space to use in conjunction with the Paul Hamlyn Hall or for a reception. The connecting Amphitheatre Terrace commands a breathtaking view over the London skyline and invites guests to soak up the atmosphere from an exclusive vantage point.
