The unique wood-panelled Jarvis Hall at 66 Portland Place is a purpose-built auditorium with theatre-style seating in the heart of London. With full audio-visual capabilities, top-quality acoustics and additional acoustic panels hidden behind the teak walls to further enhance the sound quality, the Jarvis Hall is fully equipped for all your AV needs.

Popular for conferences, AGMs, lectures, seminars, presentations and screenings for up to 400 guests, the space also offers flexibility for hybrid events.
A decorative wall mural that separates the Jarvis Hall from the adjacent Jarvis Foyer is actually a ‘disappearing wall’ which goes into the basement and means the seating capacity can be extended for larger events. With or without the wall in place, the foyer can be used as a catering space for refreshment breaks or drinks receptions. The Jarvis Hall is often booked in conjunction with the Florence Hall, which can be used for catering, exhibition stands or a post-conference drinks reception or dinner.
Prior to Covid, The Architects Underground, a live arts magazine event, was regularly held in the Jarvis Hall. The Jarvis Foyer was rebranded as the TAU lounge and the wall separating the two spaces was left down to create one large room to encourage networking. It also gave attendees the choice of enjoying the event from the comfort of the sofas in the TAU lounge, or the seats in the Jarvis Hall itself.
