Built in 1802, the warehouse that houses this venue was originally used to store vast quantities of rum, molasses, coffee, pimento and cotton from the West India slave plantations. Today it offers a distinctive backdrop for entertaining, its original pine columns and floors juxtaposed stylishly with contemporary fittings.

This unique venue offers exceptional opportunities for corporate entertaining from formal dinners, Champagne receptions and parties, to daytime and evening meetings and conferences.

For meetings, lunches, dinners, receptions or parties our fully restored Rum Store is an ideal location. It can accommodate up to 110 guests for a seated lunch or dinner and up to 200 for a standing drinks reception or party. For evening events the quayside doors can be opened allowing your guests direct access to the quayside terrace. The Rum Store has plenty of natural daylight and is fully air-conditioned. With original pine columns and exposed brickwork this room is a truly unique event and conference room. The Rum Store is located on the ground floor and has the benefit of its own cloakroom facilities and is available for daytime and evening events.
