London's Top Private Members' Clubs
London's top private members’ clubs
Prince Albert's legacy provides the key inspiration here with his original love letters to Queen Victoria on display, and a whisky from both the year of Albert's birth and death (1819-1861) available at the bar. Albert's interior is littered with eccentric British hallmarks, which offer a contemporary yet classic design, from the mahogany-clad whisky and martini bar to the Balmoral tartan staircase and vibrant wallpapers by Colefax and Fowler. Albert's has a traditional and indulgent menu, created by renowned fine-dining chef Alessio Piras, which perfectly complements the surroundings and can be enjoyed in Albert's elegant private dining room. With an established committee (including Quintessentially co- founder Ben Elliot), uniting the worlds of fashion, film and food, visitors can expect to rub shoulders with the cream of London's social scene.

5 Hertford Street
Behind an unmarked maroon door, in the heart of Shepherd Market, lies a haven of exclusive luxury. The 18th century townhouse that is 5 Hertford Street boasts two restaurants, three bars, a cinema room, and the glamorous nightclub LouLou's. In the two short years since its opening, the club has become a coveted nightspot and has been frequented by royals, business tycoons and A-list celebrities. Founded by Robin Birley, who inherited his father's elegant club Annabel's, it is no surprise 5 Hertford Street has quickly become the ‘place to be’ in London.
