Hidden in the basement of Frog by Adam Handling, The Library is the restaurant’s stylish private dining room complete with its own open kitchen, offering exclusive access to the heart of the restaurant with your personal chefs. Joining the chefs are your own team of waiting staff and sommeliers, who are on hand for the duration of your visit to ensure a truly special occasion.
The Library seats 20 guests and is accessed via a hidden doorway that transports guests into the plush dining room, offering an elegant yet quirky space that’s ideal for everything from an intimate cocktail party through to a sit-down tasting menu or corporate event.
Offering private dining packages to suit a variety of budgets, the PDR comes with its own Events Manager to create an unrivalled experience catered exclusively for your needs, whether that be a simple dinner or a feast for 2 people up to 20 people. Also available is an AV Technician who will look after any technical requirements including audio, music, and TV screens.
Adam was heavily involved in the design of the PDR, which includes specially-commissioned artworks by renowned artist JJ Adams. Taking inspiration from pieces in classic libraries, JJ has put his own interpretation on traditional artworks of aristocrats by playfully editing photos of Adam’s team in a surreal and whimsical way. The space has also been fitted out with decadent furnishings exclusively created for Adam, giving the space a contemporary, luxurious feel to complement Adam’s outstanding cuisine.
Opening out into Eve Bar, the PDR is ideally located for post-event drinks. Taking inspiration from its namesake, Eve combines life’s greatest impulses – temptation, indulgence, and hedonism – all homed in luxurious subterranean surroundings. The exacting attention to detail ordinarily found exclusively in kitchens has been executed to perfection in every drink, carefully curated by Adam and Group Bar Manager Tim Laferla. Guests can expect combinations of bold flavours, artistic garnishes, and a lightly theatrical touch.
Also available for private hire is The Cellar, a secluded area hidden away in Eve that’s charmingly adorned with climbing ivy. This underground Eden seats 12 guests with the option of an additional 10 in an adjoining area. Guests can indulge in Eve’s outstanding cocktail list, wines, canapés, bar snacks and more.
