5 Hertford Street feels like home in a rather unconventional way - quiet on the outside but quirky and homely on the inside. Housing a restaurant, a nightclub and a cigar shop, there is something for everyone. It is no surprise that 5 Hertford Street has quickly become one of the places to be in London.
5 Hertford Street was described in 2017 as London's most secretive club. It has annual membership costs of £1,800 and is owned by Robin Birley, an English businessman. Its interior design was by the fashion designer Rifat Ozbek.
The club is known to have been frequented by figures including Harry Styles, Margot Robbie, Mick Jagger, Lupita Nyong'o, George and Amal Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Princess Eugenie of York. It is famously knowsn as where Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle had their first date.
It is located on the corner of Shepherd Market and has its own cigar shop and a downstairs nightclub, Loulou's.
As one of the most elegant clubs in the world, Annabel’s has a global reputation that has been established over the past five decades. The club offers superb service, desirable ambience, high quality cuisine and entertainment. Annabel's is part of the Birley Group. Its location in Mayfair puts you on the doorstep of elegance and luxury.
In 2018, Annabel’s moved to a new location, a Grade I listed Georgian mansion house at 46 Berkeley Square. Set across 26 000 square feet and positioned just two doors down from where its original location first opened in 1963, Annabel’s is an all-day and all-night private Members’ Club.
Before the club moved to its new location in 2018, Annabel's was previously located at 44 Berkeley Square, London. It was founded by entrepreneur Mark Birley and named after Lady Annabel Vane-Tempest-Stewart, then his wife.
Annabel's was founded in 1963 after Birley's friend John Aspinall decided that they needed somewhere to party after an evening's gambling. As a result, Birley turned the basement of Aspinall's casino, the Clermont Club, into a nightclub, and named it after his then-wife, Annabel, who went on to marry Birley's friend, Sir James Goldsmith.
Annabel's was a members-only nightclub. In 2003, the Queen visited the club, and it is thought to be the only nightclub the Queen has ever attended.
In an interview on The Merv Griffin Show (broadcast November 2nd 1981) Karen Carpenter states that she met Olivia Newton-John there in 1971 and they formed a life-long friendship until her death on February 4th 1983.
Entertainers who have performed there include Tina Turner, Ray Charles, Ella Fitzgerald, Diana Ross, Bryan Ferry and Lady Gaga
The Arts Club was built with the vision to create a place for people with an interest in the arts. That vision remains at the core of the club, highlighting the latest modern art trends. Ever since its conception, The Arts Club has become a haven for hospitality and friendship, and has solidified its place at the heart of contemporary cultural life in London.
The original club premises were at 17 Hanover Square, Mayfair. After thirty years there, the club moved nearby to its current accommodation, an 18th-century townhouse at 40 Dover Street, Mayfair, just north of the Ritz Hotel on Piccadilly, formerly the London home of the family of the Baron Stanley of Alderley. It was badly bombed in the Blitz and extensively rebuilt. The Arts Club is also looking at expanding its clubhouses, and planning venues in Los Angeles and Canary Wharf in London.
Current membership includes a number of Royal Academicians, architects, musicians, actors and writers. Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh was the Patron and Sir Peter Blake is the President of the Club. The Chairman of the Club is Gary Landesberg and the Chief Operating Officer is Remy Lyse. Current members include Grayson Perry, the photographer Tom Hunter, the actresses Gwyneth Paltrow and Kim Cattrall and also Ronnie Wood. Well known "non-artist" members include Richard Attenborough, Matthew Parris, and Henry Blofeld.
There are regular activities, recitals and lectures. The Arts Club operates a smart dress code. Membership requirements are a participation or interest in art, literature or science. Members must be proposed and seconded by existing members.
As of 2012, the Club has no reciprocal clubs in the UK. However, a number of clubs outside the UK of similar character and prestige have reciprocal arrangements, including the Cercle de l'Union interalliée in Paris, The Arts and Letters Club of Toronto, the St. Botolph and Algonquin Clubs in Boston, the Cosmos Club in Washington DC, the Arts Club of Chicago and the Arts Club of Washington DC, and the Century Association, The Coffee House, National Arts Club and Salmagundi Club in New York.
According to Chadwyck-Healey, Executive Director of The Arts Club: "Being an arts club, we look for people with a demonstrable interest in the arts," says Chadwyck-Healey. "We look for people who are interested and interesting." The club interprets the arts "fairly broadly", their members ranging from painters and sculptors to "journalists, ballerinas and actors". "All candidates need to know two existing members of the club; it's a fairly traditional approach. But we try and meet every candidate, to see if we'd be a good fit for them as much as they'd be a good fit for us."
Launched in 2001, The Century Club sits behind a discrete front door on Shaftesbury Avenue. It boasts four floors of members' club fun, including Soho's largest roof terrace.
Given its proximity to the theatres of London's West End, it is frequented by people in the arts, media, and entertainment industries.
The club also offers an out-of-town reduced annual membership at £550 ($716), and an under 30s membership costs £400 ($521).
Based in the same iconic building as the Ivy, the Club at Ivy has built its reputation since 2008. With a concealed entrance to the property, you step into the Ivy to enter a realm of a fresh and imaginative oasis in the heart of the West End. The club offers worldwide benefits including access to associated members clubs around the globe.
Set in a Georgian townhouse in the heart of Soho above London's oldest French restaurant L'escargot, the chic Upstairs Club is accessed via a psychedelic carpeted spiral staircase.
It's a secretive hideout away from the hustle and bustle of the capital. There is an air of eccentricity to the club which offers its members access to a series of private rooms, including the salon noir, salon bleu, and salon rouge, which regularly host performances and general debauchery.
Under 28s can obtain a reduced membership of £250 ($326). If you don't have a proposer, you may be asked to visit the club and meet with one of the membership team for a drink and a brief introduction.
Eight offers a haven for people to relax, meet friends, work and socialise. The club offers the feel of a genuine old-school gentlemen club.

Home House is a unique mixture of classic and contemporary, and has become a home and community to multiple members; whether it be to socialise, work or to relax.
Amanda Elghag, Membership Executive of Home House, say that "as one of London's most exclusive and popular clubs", membership of Home House is by invitation.
Similarly to The Arts Club, you need to know two people at the club who can vouch for you during the Home House membership application. You're also required to answer questions such as "what are your social interests?" and "which London restaurants do you currently frequent?"
Applicants "arrange a concise tour" of the club "so that we can meet them personally". "Fully completed applications are put before the Membership Committee around the 18th of each month. If successful, your membership will commence on the 1st of the following month."
