Built a century ago as a Christian Science church, this austere building was transformed into a light and airy auditorium in 2004. It's hard to imagine how the renovations could have been bettered: the 905-capacity hall is comfortable and the acoustics excellent, providing the perfect setting for concerts by the resident Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Similar in size and scale to the long-established Wigmore Hall, Cadogan Hall hosts an array of talks, jazz and contemporary music, plus several of the BBC Proms concerts are held here every summer in conjunction with the Royal Albert Hall. The impressive art deco interior is also a draw, as is the charming Oakley Room bar where drinks are served at every available juncture.

This is a lovely little venue that is all about the sound of the music. The acoustics are fantastic regardless of where you sit. The stalls have some of the comfiest seats in London and while the seats in the gallery are more pew-style, they offer ample space. The back of the hall seems to have the most rounded sound, either in the stalls or the gallery. Now all it needs is a broader musical programme.


This spot is a very good, yet little known classical music venue. It offers amazing productions of the royal philharmonic orchestra and many one offs by very good musical talent. It is very well located. The venue itself where the music is played in nice and most seat provide good viewing of the stage. 

It is the hall in which you have drinks that really lets this venue down- it feels very school hall-esque. However the soroudning mean there are many options for pre and after performance drinks (and dinner) so you only need to be there for the interval.
