No.3 St James’s Street has been home to Berry Bros. & Rudd, Britain’s oldest wine and spirit merchant, for more than 315 years. No.3 is not just a shop – it is the gateway to one of London’s most historic and atmospheric establishments, an ideal location for intimate meals and large receptions, discreet meetings and lively parties. The cellars beneath our wine shop date from the early 18th century. Louis Napoleon, later to become Emperor Napoleon III, held clandestine meetings here during his exile in the 1840s, plotting his return to France.
The Napoleon Cellar
The largest of our three cellars, our 19th-century Napoleon Cellar is perfect for stand-up receptions and tastings, as well as sit-down lunches and dinners.
It combines the old with the new, with state-of-the-art audio-visual facilities discreetly presented next to historic original features.
The Sussex Cellar
The Sussex Cellar is the most recent addition to our exceptional wine education and entertainment venues.
Equipped with the latest technological gadgetry, it offers purpose-built convenience suited to receptions, tutored wine tastings, lunches and dinners.
After entering via a secret door in one of our historic Pickering Place townhouses, you will descend into a dual level venue that combines modern architectural innovation with the feel of our historic cellars.
The Town House

The Townhouse provides an elegant venue for more intimate occasions. Beautifully decorated by celebrated interior designer Nina Campbell, The Long Room has a sophisticated atmosphere ideal for dinner parties, family get-togethers and business lunches and dinners.
