Last year was undoubtedly the year of the private members club in London, with a whole stream of them popping up around the city.
And with more choice, comes the harder decision to know which club to commit to for a year’s membership – not least because there are now more clubs with unique offerings.
Examples of this include The South Kensington Club which focuses on wellness, with its own spa, training studios and treatment rooms. The Court Soho (formerly Rusty Nail where Jimi Hendrix famously made his first UK performance) features live music performances.
The Devonshire Club is aimed at people from the City and provides a location that is more convenient for them than typically having to head over to Mayfair. The Allbright distinguishes itself by being a members' club designed by women for women.
When choosing which club to join, some of the most important factors to consider are what you’re likely to be using the club for – will it be purely for socialising in the evenings or at weekends? Or are you looking for somewhere quiet to take clients for daytime meetings?
