THE ARTS CLUB

 

Founded in 1863 by men of vision, The Arts Club London was developed for those people who had professional or amateur relationships with the Arts, Literature or Sciences and it has provided this hospitality and friendship ever since.

 

With many of its members being outstanding figures in the history of art, literature and science: writers such as Charles Dickens, Wilkie Collins and Thomas Hughes; musicians such as Paolo Tosti, Charles Halle and Franz Liszt; artists such as Frederic Leighton, Walter Sickert, John Everett Millais, Auguste Rodin and James McNeill Whistler, as well as an array of pre-eminent surgeons, solicitors and professionals. All with an interest to involve themselves with the club over their lifetime many meet friends that last a lifetime.

 

In September 2011, the Club re-launched after undergoing a complete renovation, transforming it into a truly venerable institution. The principal areas of interest amongst the current members are: art, architecture, fashion, film, literature, music, performance, photography, science, theatre and media. It proudly continues to be a hub for creative and entrepreneurial patrons to come together to meet, exchange ideas, dine and participate in the varied events, and the Club has reclaimed its place at the heart of contemporary cultural life in London.

 

With a series of various entertainment and dining areas the club features its signature brasserie on the lower level, members lounge on the upper level and its newest Japanese bar and restaurant, Kyubi on the buildings top floor offering guests an exciting dining experience with both bar seating and a cosy outdoor terrace.

 

Also situated within the exclusive members club is a luxury boutique hotel offering an exclusive experience unlike any other with dedicated butlers for each room and suite and access to the clubs spectacular services and venues. The jewel in the hotels crown is its signature penthouse offering a home-away-from-home for arriving international club members and guests featuring a luxe living and dining room, kitchen, terrace and expansive master suite.
