What our Clients Say About us

We asked local law firm Hampson Hughes to tell us why they choose to use 54 St James Street for meetings and events.  Here was their response:

"Fantastic! The staff at the venue bend over backwards to ensure all of our needs are met and are always flexible in accommodating last minute requests and extra requirements. The event space that we use on the 4th floor is really impressive with the full length windows giving a view over the city and making the space feel light and open. The modern facilities that are available mean that our events run smoothly and assists in projecting the professional image that our firm maintains." Hampson Hughes

Our Success
