Summer Season at Courtyard 51

Summer Season at Courtyard 51 | Live Music

 We need to chat… about your friends.

They’re great people: hugely fun; intimidatingly attractive; painfully smart.  They’re perfect for dinner parties; relaxed nights out; movie nights in; coffee catch ups and even the occasional Sunday lunch.

We love them as much as you do.

Everyone does.

But sometimes – particularly in the middle of a long and sociable summer of weekend barbecues; flip-flops and ice-cream (it’s coming) – you’re better off without them.

Imagine, for example, a hidden location by Buckingham Palace; a luxury five star hotel; a beautiful garden; an alfresco three course dinner; summer cocktails, live operatic arias and crossover classics…

This is Summer Season at Courtyard 51, and it’s prime, Grade-A dating territory.

No friends required.

Gently taking your date by the hand you’ll enter the historic garden, find your table and enjoy a signature “51” cocktail.  The entertainment will begin and you’ll soak up the warm evening air as your meal is served: mille-feuille of char-grilled vegetables, followed by a duo of sea bass and lamb cutlets and then English rhubarb panacotta.

As the sun sets, as the moon appears and as your perfect evening draws to a close over coffee and petit fours, you’ll gaze deeply into your companion’s eyes and tenderly whisper the words that your heart has long ached to release;

“I love…I love….I love…..The Nudge”.


Note: performances on Saturday 14th July, Friday the 20th July; Saturday 18th August & Friday 24th August.  Costs £99.50 per head for welcome drink; live performance; 3 course dinner (15% discount available for tables of 6 or more).
