Whilst canines have always been exceptionally welcome at George, the swanky private members’ club nestled in the heart of Mayfair, the exclusive establishment is going one step further to ensure its stature as the most dog-friendly private member’s club in London…
This month, the club – which is named after British entrepreneur and founder Mark Birley’s very own four-legged friend – is launching the George Dog Committee. The brand-new initiative will build on the club’s notable canine offering, including the introduction of bespoke dog menus, premium beds and bowls, and a series of fundraising events in aid of dog welfare.
Renowned British florist and Wild at Heart founder Nikki Tibbles will kick off the series with an event on the 26th February in support of her animal welfare foundation, a charity devoted to supporting stray dogs worldwide, in which there are an astonishing 600 million.
A number of other familiar faces have joined the charitable committee, including the likes of David Gandy, Carole Bamford, and models Yasmin and Amber Le Bon, each dedicated to supporting the club’s various campaigns and canine-associated events throughout the year.
George’s membership director, Astrid Harbord said: ‘We are thrilled to be launching a fantastic committee that focuses on our love of dogs; something that has been at the core of George’s values since the Club opened in 2001. We value our dog visitors as much as our Members and this initiative means we can upscale the offering for them, whilst fundraising for incredibly worthwhile causes’.
Sister to Mayfair’s glamorous A-list attraction Annabel’s, George is renowned for its sumptuous Nantucket-inspired interiors, David Hockney artworks, delicious seasonal menus and family-friendly feel – the club even offers a unique Junior Membership featuring events, competitions, newsletters, games tailored specifically to the little ones. Now, with the club’s deepened dedication to its dog-friendly offerings, there is no reason not to treat the entire family (four-legged friends included) to an exclusive membership.
The George Dog Committee launches on 26th February 2020. Visit georgeclub.com for more information.
