Venue Hire


NHL is a beautiful venue with an even more beautiful founding story. We were determined to host our event at NHL…The team at the library supported us during this season relentlessly – literally round the clock. And it is with the support of a great venue that the event eventually won an award in Singapore.

‘A timeless venue for a lasting impression’

The Neilson Hays Library is a unique and elegant venue that provides the perfect backdrop for a range of events.

Awarded the status of “Historic Landmark” in 1986 by the Association of Siamese Architects, the Neilson Hays Library building displays a wealth of classical features such as stucco decorative motifs, columns, and teak fixtures and fittings. The architectural highlight is a beautiful Italianate dome, once the imposing entrance and now an intimate art gallery. The building was described by the Bangkok Times at the time of its opening as “… a grand palace on a small scale”, and it remains so today.

We have a number of flexible spaces available for hire, including the main library building, the garden courtyard and the café.

Our image and video gallery demonstrates how the library can be utilised for many purposes, such as:

  • Wedding ceremonies and receptions
  • Birthday/family celebrations
  • Product launches
  • Concerts
  • Business dinners
  • Cocktail functions
  • Film and photo shoots
  • Fashion shoots
  • Television commercials
  • Press Conference

We would be very pleased to discuss your specific requirements. Please contact our Office Manager to make an appointment to view our facilities, or complete our Venue Enquiry Form.
