London has long been a magnet for the rich and famous. A-list celebrities, youthful royals and wealthy magnates alike are drawn to the UK’s affluent capital; London is a playground for anyone who can afford its opulent luxuries. The city is home to a plethora of private members’ clubs that provide the global elite with plenty of inspirational venues to work, dine, network and, of course, relax. Here are a few of the best that Central London has to offer.
Located just across the road from Soho House, Quo Vadis is another opulent haunt on Dean Street. Formerly a brothel and a home to Karl Marx, the club has a joining fee of £150 and the five available membership options can be paid annually or monthly, while an alternative life membership option exists for a one-time fee of £5,000. Endorsements from two members of the club are needed for a membership application to be considered.
Boasting two clubs in prosperous areas of London, Eight offers the same membership deals for both its Bank and Moorgate establishments. New members must pay a £75 joining fee, in addition the £900 plus VAT annual individual rate – prices improve for corporate membership depending on how many people join at the same time. Eight Bank offers pool tables, meeting rooms, a cinema and a lounge bar; Eight Moorgate boasts a library, a restaurant, a conference space, a lounge bar and terraces with views over the city.
