Blacks Club, London
This week Billionaire.com ran a post called “The World’s Most Exclusive Members’ Clubs.” The one that caught my eye was Blacks Club in London. Here’s the write-up:
Harry Potter would feel at home in Blacks. Not because there are school kids running around (quite the opposite), but because the Blacks townhouse is a hidden club, rather like Sirius Black’s old townhouse, which was invisible unless you knew the magic words. It might sit opposite The Groucho, but members go to Blacks because, with its wood (Farrow & Ball-painted) panelling, huge log gas fires, black velvet curtains and ultimate discretion, it’s entirely off the pap radar. Founded in 1764 as a supper club, it became Blacks in 1992 as the antithesis to White’s Club. New owner Caroline Towning has introduced a modern edge without compromising on the richness of the club’s history. Look out for Homeland’s Rupert Friend, who has been known to pop in when in town.
I went over to the Blacks website (yes, even though it’s exclusive, it maintains a web presence) and found these photos to inspire your envy.
