South West London
This is Funky because...
Across the Thames from Belgravia and Tate Britain stands a mansion, a magnificent reminder of eighteenth century Vauxhall and its Pleasure Gardens. Where once orchestras played and pleasure steamers moored, a fifty-storey tower rises – but inside Brunswick House the music can still be heard.
The house, once home to the eponymous Duke, is now LASSCO’s architectural emporium and the Brunswick House Café. Guests enter through the grand stone portico, leaving the roar of twenty-first-century London’s traffic behind. Inside the lofty Georgian interior, reclaimed furniture and vintage paraphernalia jostles with an eclectic display of beautiful antiques. The panelled rooms are packed with salvaged curiosities, magnificent chimneypieces, brilliant cut-glazed entranceways, sparkling chandeliers and noble colonnades that transport guests two hundred years into the past. Outside, either on the roof terrace or the patio gardens, old street signs, statuary, fountains, lanterns and lamp posts are displayed in picturesque profusion. What’s more, everything is for sale!
Private dining, corporate meetings and receptions are held in the saloon, smoking room, parlour and panelled library, while catering is provided in-house by the highly acclaimed chefs of the Brunswick House Café. The concert hall stage hosts torch singers and DJs alike, with a bar serving anything from cocktails to boutique beers. Small intimate dinners and large wedding receptions, serious business discussions and confidential planning meetings – any event will find its place at Brunswick House.
