Home House

Home House, 20 Portman Square, W1H 6LW

In 1773 Elizabeth, Countess of Home, commissioned a new building in London’s Portman Square. It was to be a “Palace of Pleasure”: the high-water mark of gracious party giving.

In the hands of James Wyatt and Robert Adam, architectural superstars of their day, this dazzling fantasy took shape. Elegant neo-classical proportions, sumptuous décor and the most dramatic staircase in London – the Countess certainly knew how to make an entrance.

Today, more than two centuries later, Home House has maintained its rightful place among the finest entertaining venues in the world. This is eighteenth century elegance reinvented with flair and sensitivity, creating a unique atmosphere of timeless, laid-back luxury for your special event.

With exclusive rooms that can be adjusted to your every need, to sumptuous gardens to host the ultimate al-fresco experience, Home House has it all; and all right on the doorstep of W1.

Home House Style

By day, light floods in through tall windows, playing over the rich patina of parquet flooring. By night, sumptuous velvet drapery seems to glow with the light from a grand chandelier.

Each of our private event spaces has been lovingly restored and updates in such a way as to bring out its unique character. Everywhere you look, the airy elegance of the architecture sets the mood for entertaining.

Our private rooms were literally made for entertaining. Under the auspices of its first owner, the Countess of Home, it’s safe to say that Home House saw its fair share of high-society hi-jinks.

These days, it’s altogether more democratic. Still glamorous, still exclusive, but with a relaxed, home-from-home vibe that’s feels very current. Add to that the unobtrusive but attentive service, the pitch-perfect gourmet catering, the buzz of the West End a few steps away, who wouldn’t want to play modern-day count or countess in such gorgeous surroundings?

Our experienced events team will work with you to refine every detail from the menu, wine choices and room set-up, right through to music and floral displays. Dress it up or down, it’s your choice: we’ll throw you a laid-back birthday brunch or a beyond – fabulous masquerade ball. Either way, you’ll be the host with the most with lifelong bragging rights.
