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 such a great venue. Achoustics are first class. Auditorium is very comfortable. Beautifully equipped for a great concert. Local restaurants make it an excellent night out.
Cadogan Hall is a fabulous venue both for the performer and the audience with an amazing repertoire; the acoustics are great, it is comfortable with great sight lines (and a great bar!) in top-notch surroundings in a lovely part of London: what more could a concert-giver or concert-goer wish for?
Beautiful building; a lovely venue for chamber concerts - love the lunch-time Proms !
Why aren't the café & bar open more ?
