Sala Brasil, the former ticket hall for the Oceanic Steamship Company, where it is said tickets for the Titanic were sold, has been the jewel in the crown of the Embassy of Brazil in London ever since its premises moved to Cockspur Street in 2012. Located on the ground floor of the Embassy with an open plan area of approximately 250m² and a mezzanine of approximately 60m², this Grade II listed historical hall is decorated with frescos and ornamentation which reveal its ties with shipping and international trade. It is the main venue for a variety of Brazil-related cultural events organized by the Embassy. Spatially suitable for an ambitious cultural programme, the hall hosts a series of attractions, from art exhibitions to concerts, in an effort to give the public an opportunity to experience the quality and diversity of Brazilian culture.
