About this space

The Lost Close is an underground venue located on Parliament Square. Most of locals don't even know it exists - this is what makes it so special and unique. Planning an unforgettable birthday party, a conference or a small gathering? Look no further.

We are happy to provide not only the venue space, but also help to sort the catering and music.

Interested in a beer or whisky tasting session? Leave it with us, we've got it covered.

Why do we love it?

It’s a piece of history that few of us can ever see unless we make the journey below ground and its atmosphere is altogether different from the building above it.

What do we want people to use it for?

We want it be a place of social gathering as it was in the hundreds of years before. Many of the city’s most learned people congregated in Parliament Close, many of whom drank coffee at John’s Coffee House below.

How will we use it?

Private events, magicians, storytelling, inspiring speakers, craft drinks tastings and many more!
