These are finished in scagliola; a skillful plaster treatment designed to imitate marble and add to the splendour in the room. The walls are also covered by gold leaf on linen; a very expensive and delicate treatment enriching the overall impression of opulence.

The room is perfect for large dinners, receptions and weddings.

Originally the home to the United Services Club, the building contains many of the clubs original treasures.
