Hammersmith Venue: Linden House – Hammersmith’s Best Kept Secret?

Kea and Eddie

Planning a special occasion? Linden House is a wonderful riverside location

‘One of the more memorable events we’ve hosted was a little girl’s birthday party,’ smiles Kea Kouvatsis, the Manager of Linden House. ‘Naturally, her mother wanted it to be just perfect – flower garlands, a fairy palace, a balloon tent – and then, the day before, she decided to cover the space in pink tulle. It was very stressful, so I said, “why not leave it all to us?” We were up until 5am, but it was worthwhile – it was a lovely day.’

Linden House, a grand Georgian building on the Thames between The Old Ship and The Dove, is the home of London Corinthian Sailing Club and Sons of the Thames Rowers.

‘As a result, people often assume we’re off limits,’ says Kea. ‘In fact, the reverse is true: we love to see the community using our facilities, whether for weddings, christenings, parties, bridal showers or business meetings.

‘Whatever the occasion, we ensure that every detail is looked after and with three elegant private rooms – the Ballroom, the Captain’s Room and the Commodore’s Room – we can create a tailormade package. The rooms are different sizes and clients can use any or all of them for dining, dancing and mingling. In addition, our fully equipped Boardroom is ideal for out-of-office brainstorming and team-bonding sessions.’

Linden House has its own in-house chef, sommelier and catering team and offers freshly prepared menu options ranging from multi-course dining and wedding breakfasts to buffets and working lunches. ‘Through our contacts, we can also arrange any entertainment, from violinists and jazz bands to DJs,’ adds Kea. ‘Most excitingly, in September we’ll be opening for delicious homemade Afternoon Teas.

‘Linden House makes an atmospheric canvas for any event. We’re committed to providing clients with a memorable experience; we always say, you tell us what you want, and we will achieve it.’
