Owner description: Set in a fantastic location in the heart of Chelsea Cadogan Hall has become one of London's leading venues. The Hall's 950 seats, excellent acoustic and luxurious surroundings makes it the first choice for some of the UK's top orchestras, including the Hall's resident orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic, as well as a favourite London destination for international touring orchestras. Cadogan Hall is the chosen venue for the world-famous BBC Proms Chamber Music Series and also offers a vibrant selection of contemporary, jazz, folk and world music events as well as talks, debates and conferences.

... need to sort out front of house piece, The service in the bar is terrible - not helped by some very rude people who queue jump!
Once inside the seats (at least in the balcony) are great, the views are fantastic and accoustics are brilliant.

This beautifully refurbished former Church has so much to offer and is far superior to many other converted concert venues in London. We recently attended the Bach Brandenburg Concertos performed by the London Concertante Chamber Ensemble. It was an excellent evening, the programme was wonderfully performed to a very high standard and the introductions were extremely entertaining and amusing.
It was the seating which spoilt our evening. I was told by a snooty attendant to 'move along', I pointed out that I couldn't get my legs in the space without developing cramp. She replied it's 'impossible' but nevertheless I had to try to squeeze in to allow other people into their seats. If we had purchased the cheapest seats I perhaps could accept the discomfort but we paid more and were not warned of the situation. I complained to the venue but have not received the courtesy of a reply.

Tucked away just behind Sloane Square, this is a gem of a venue. Designed as a Church, the acoustics are great, and the auditorium is intimate rather than cavernous. There's a big entrance hall where you can get a drink and wait for friends to join you, which is useful.

The programme of events is carefully chosen, and there is bound to be something which attracts. As other reviewers have mentioned, most tickets are very reasonably priced, and represent excellent value.

There is food available at the venue, but I would suggest that, if you need to eat, use one of the many eating places in the surrounding area, because the facilities can be a bit cramped and I personally can't enjoy a snack while people with freshly filled plates hover nearby, trying to hypnotise you into leaving the table so that they can sit down!

Certainly one of my favourite places to go for concerts.

We recently hugely enjoyed an evening at the Cadogan Hall with Dame Kiri Te Kanawa. She was accompanied by a small number of guest artists who are supported by the Kiri Te Kanawa Foundation.

Dame Kiri has a huge repertoire but also knows her limitations. She clearly enjoys supporting her protégées and in return they relish performing with her.

The Hall is very intimate and well worth becoming a member.

I attended a concert featuring the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. This is an excellent venue, with wonderful acoustics. I sat third row stalls on the right side, a seat very reasonably priced at £15, with a very good view despite the close proximity and oblique angle to the center of the stage. The bar/cafe offers a nice selection of food and drink, albeit a tad pricey, and provides a warm atmosphere for socializing before the event and during the interval. Overall, a superb concert experience.
