A place for the upper echelons of 18th century society, The Assembly Rooms in Bath was home to elite soirees in its day. This was a building of opulence, where guests gathered to drink tea, play cards and to dance the night away with live music. Designed by John Wood, the building was purpose built to indulge the extravagant social lives of the upper classes.
