Celebrations at The Merchants’ Hall

The Merchants’ Hall has a stunning collection of gallery spaces for a variety of special occasions. Whether it’s an intimate champagne reception for 12, or a ceilidh for 200, The Merchants’ Hall is an ideal choice. The Hall makes a beautiful setting for larger dinners, where you can dine under our fabulous domed ceiling whilst accompanied by music from The Minstrels’ Gallery. Or, choose one of our more intimate spaces for your smaller gatherings, including the mahogany-panelled Court Room, where portraits by Allan Ramsay and Raeburn hang on rich crimson walls, and our windows offer sweeping views all the way to St. Giles Cathedral.
