A unique venue for your event
We host hundreds of spectacular events every year, using our unique spaces and flawless service to create an extraordinary occasion for you and your guests.
In its time, 116 Pall Mall has welcomed luminaries such as James Bond creator Ian Fleming, Paul McCartney, the makers of The Dark Knight and the King of Norway, to name but a few, adding a touch of extra sparkle to this already prestigious venue.
With bespoke packages designed around your day, you can choose to hire one room for a few hours or the whole building at weekends, and our dedicated team of event coordinators will see to every stage of the planning, allowing you to sit back, enjoy the day and let everything unfold according to your vision.

Thank you for all of your assistance with our event, I really appreciate your help with getting everything set up before the event and for answering my many questions. You were delightful to work with. Thank you.
Please also pass along my thanks and congratulations to Henry, Paris, Rafa, and Lee as well. They were fantastic to work with and produced a great show. Our leadership was very pleased with the technological and program elements of the event and that level of excellence would not have been possible without your team.
Josh - The University of Texas
“I just wanted to pass on my huge thanks to you, Victor and the rest of the team for making our meetings run so smoothly this week. Every delegate we spoke to said how beautiful the buildings were and how smoothly everything had run, so thank you so much for making this happen. We really appreciate it, and I know our guests did too. Please pass on my thanks to the rest of your team and the catering staff.”
“I just wanted to thank you for all your assistance with the delivery of our event at the IoD. The AV equipment was faultless and allowed the event to run smoothly.
Please pass my gratitude onto Paris. Paris was very helpful and delivered a very professional and helpful service. The event would not have been such a success without his support.
I look forward to working with you and your team again soon.
Amber, University of West London
“Thank you so much for all your help in arranging our event last night.
The general consensus among our guests was that everything went extremely well and the Chairman and I are certainly very grateful to you and all your staff at the IoD for facilitating that so calmly and efficiently.
I should also say that we (and, more importantly, the sponsors and prize winners) thought the AV support was especially good, so please let Conor know that Paris did a particularly good job throughout the evening and gave all those involved reassurance and confidence during what can sometimes be quite a stressful time.”
David, Award Event Organiser
“Thank you so much 116 Pall Mall for a fantastic evening! The venue was stunning, food was delicious and the service was on point! Please pass on a huge thanks to Kyle our event coordinator for all his hard work! The feedback from everyone is that it was one of the best Christmas parties we’ve had in years! So good in fact that we could be back next Christmas!”
