BBBeach Blanket Babylon or BBB as it is affectionately known has been established since 1990. Residing in an old Georgian Town house in the heart of Notting Hill, it comprises a distinctly Baroque & chateau-like interior renowned the world over!
Like an old Town house, BBB is divided up into a variety rooms. You enter into a large bar area with patio terraces to the front and rear, and nestled behind lays the restaurant, accessed over a wooden walkway suspended by chains in the Gaudisque style. Here you will find the dining area called the Chapel with a large imposing fireplace dominating the turreted room. This room is ideal for parties of up to 35 guests.
Beyond the Chapel resides the Gallery room and then the aptly named "Crypt", which owes its name to being nestled in the basement and having the appearance of a medieval crypt! This area can seat 40 guests.
Away from the main restaurant and sitting on the first floor of the building is the Ballroom decorated in the baroque style with 18 century chandeliers and dressed with swags and tails in the windows. This area is ideal for dinner parties from 30 – 50 or a cocktail & Canape reception / party for 150. It also benefits from having an adjacent bar & drawing room, all of which are private with access from the hidden staircase.
BBB is an ideal venue for small of large gatherings. It can devise menus suited to your tastes and boasts an array of cocktails and wines. The bar benefits from having a DJ to set the scene. The Ballroom is a jewel in the crown of BBB and serves the perfect backdrop for any event.
