If you are planning that perfect party, dream wedding or an important corporate event, then we can make it truly unique. The R.S. Hispaniola offers unrivalled views over the river Thames, London Eye and Houses of Parliament which can be enjoyed on the outdoor decks or from the fully air-conditioned restaurant and bar areas. Transport links to R.S. Hispaniola are second to none. We are a 2 minute walk from Embankment tube station and an 8 minute walk from Waterloo, Westminster or Charring Cross stations.
The R.S. Hispaniola has a light, yet intimate feel and offers great flexibility with its adaptable floor space, decks, bars and dining areas. But that is just the start; we offer a selection of options to choose from to personalise your event still further – from a string quartet or Jazz pianist to decking the ship in your corporate branding. Choosing the Hispaniola is the easy way to host that perfect event that your guests will never forget.
Main Deck & Pinkton Parlour Bar – max capacity 150
This two-part space ensures you have the very best views of the River Thames.
The Pinkton Parlour Bar
Our gorgeous Art Deco Bar inspired area offers the perfect welcome to this mid deck space available for exclusive hire. Mirrored pillars and cream tub chairs and sofas work well for any event.
Windows along the port side of the ship afford stunning views towards the London Eye, beautiful at night when illuminated. This space is perfect for large boardroom style dinners for 20-40 people and formal dining for up to 120 and parties for 150. The deck space can be transformed with theming for your events and can also be used for 100 theatre style presentations, or cabaret/comedy performances.
Upper Deck – max capacity 100 standing & 60 seated for lunch or dinner
The stylish restaurant Upper Deck offers great views of the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament, St Paul’s Cathedral and the River Thames. Due to the popularity of our restaurant this space is only available for use as part of a whole ship hire, or during the month of December.
Officers’ Mess – max capacity 30 standing & 26 seated
Evoking the style of a dining room for officers and situated in the hull of the ship, this room works very well for formal private dining for groups of 10-26. Opting for an informal reception means your
number can rise to 30. You can have access to our outside space situated on the Upper Deck.
Whole Ship Hire – max capacity 300
For larger events why not take over the entire Hispaniola? Enjoy reception drinks and entertainment on our Upper Deck, which has inside and outside spaces, followed by dinner on our Main Deck.
