London Design Agenda will offer you a chance to experience true luxury. How? By belonging to a members’ club in London – the right members’ club. From quiet places to find undisturbed solitude for an hour during the busy working day or exclusive after-hours parties only for those in the know; membership comes with its perks.
If you’re considering joining but aren’t sure where to start, (in no particular order) we’ve rounded up our top picks of London’s members’ clubs to inspire you.
Albert’s, Old Brompton Road
Next month, the capital’s newest members’ club will open its doors to discerning Londoners. Albert’s has been founded by four of the biggest names from London’s nightclub scene – between them offering more than 60 years of experience.
The Hospital Club, Covent Garden
This centrally located members’ club caters for creative types, offering the environment and facilities to foster new and established talent.
Founded by Dave Stewart of The Eurythmics and Paul Allen, the co-founder of Microsoft, The Hospital Club spans seven floors in the heart of London’s Covent Garden.
Blacks Club, SoHo
Blacks Club has a rather intriguing history. The first club on the site was formed in 1764 by illustrious academics and creatives Samuel Johnson, David Garrick and Joshua Reynolds. The supper club was intended as a place to meet and discuss the issues of the day over fine food and wine.
Spread over three Georgian townhouses in Portman Square, Home House’s House 19, House 20 and House 21 embody the splendour of 18th century architecture and opulent Neo-Classical design.
Designed as a ‘pleasure palace’, the club boasts restaurants, bars, party rooms, a garden, gym and spa – as well as a number of sumptuous bedrooms and suites.
South Kensington Club
Offering its members a classic country club experience, the SKC boasts a relaxed, homey setting plush with fitness, social and bathhouse spaces to cater to body, mind and soul.
The SKC’s interiors have been designed to be elegant yet unpretentious, offering the kind of understated luxury that doesn’t always follow wealth and power, but should.
