Our history

Grace Hall was originally the bank and offices of Grace & Co, a New York family-owned banking firm. The family commissioned architect James O’Connor, who’d already designed several houses for them, to create their new London headquarters. Taking inspiration from Robert Adams, he constructed this elegant four-story building, built from the finest Portland stone, suffused with Art Deco elegance and featuring Palladian motifs throughout. Grace Hall opened its doors in 1927.

After becoming part of the Camm & Hooper collection in 2017, we set out to restore Grace Hall to its former architectural importance. Russell Sage Studios were instructed to refurbish the space, beginning with stripping out the fittings and fixtures from its previous incarnation as a speakeasy-style bar.

Now Grace Hall is a light and bright space, in honour of its name, with a subtle lighting palette to enhance the sophistication of the original architecture. We opened as a private events venue in November 2017.
