Pavilion Club arrived in Knightsbridge earlier this year and has already made a name for itself with its impressive interiors, membership perks and menus devised by a Michelin-starred chef

  London has no shortage of eclectic private members’ clubs. In fact, they’re a veritable London institution, dating all the way back to the late 1600s and enjoying a raucous heyday in the Victorian era.   Today’s private members’ clubs offer the best of both worlds when it comes to pleasure and professional endeavours and serve as beautifully designed sanctuaries for work, rest and play.   London’s latest private members’ club is located in the heart of Knightsbridge – more specifically in the Grade II-listed former Danish Club, originally built in 1884 for the London & Country Bank. Set over six floors with 17 private offices, two members’ bars and a penthouse suite, Pavilion Club is the place to see and be seen. The Art Deco-inspired interiors are the work of the award-winning Russell Sage Studio, the team behind The Zetter Townhouse in Clerkenwell and The Fife Arms in Braemar, Scotland.   Pavilion Club members have access to numerous work and leisure facilities, as well as a host of premium perks, including exclusive members-only events and activities and discounts on Equinox gym and Bamford Spa, and even an upcoming helicopter charter service. Membership also applies to all three Pavilion locations (soon to be four with the launch of Fulham next summer).   More impressive still is that Pavilion Club members can dine on a bespoke menu devised by Michelin-starred chef Tom Kerridge, one of the country’s most acclaimed and prolific culinary talents.   New for the season, the Pavilion Club has just unveiled its Christmas Events packages, covering everything from intimate private dining to full-scale soirées for up to 100 people. With impressive Tom Kerridge-created menus, ranging from canapés to festive feasts, and stunning social spaces, including the magnificent Sky Floor terrace with panoramic views across Hyde Park, there’s no better place to celebrate the season in Knightsbridge.   Pavilion Club, 64 Knightsbridge, SW1X 7JF;
