About this space

The Library is a reflection of London’s history as a trading entrepôt, with the ceiling decked in an enormous vintage trading map taken from old travel books. With a capacity for 32 seated and up to 35 standing, this room is the largest of the meeting spaces, and can be hired for private use, offering an informal setting for working lunches, laidback dinners or business meetings. For larger events or even more space, The Library and Drawing Room can be interconnected.

Meeting Offers

The Library is the Vintry & Mercer’s largest event space, the ideal setting for informal gatherings, business meetings and private dining. The space pays homage to its sister site, The Ampersand Hotel and features a ceiling navigation map taken from old travellers’ books. Persian carpets are an exotic reference to the travel routes of London’s traders, whilst book spines emulate the library setting that the space takes its name from.

The manager was very happy to meet and discuss all the details before the event. I felt like I was actually being heard and all details were perfectly executed on the night.


We have three private rooms on the lower ground floor, each inflected with individual character and style, in a part of the hotel that is secluded and quiet.

Rooms include audio and visual equipment, mini-bar fridges, Nespresso machines, television screens, and high-speed internet.

Whether guests choose our Library, Drawing Room or Music Room, they can be guaranteed an original and quiet venue for dinner, drinks, or business meetings.
