Fitzdares red, white and green dining room

Fitzdares, Dining Room

Founded by premium bookmakers Fitzdares: it’s no wonder this newcomer to 50 Davies Street, Mayfair predominantly features racy reds in its colour scheme. A perfect W1 hideaway for racing enthusiasts to settle down with a ‘Horse’s Neck’ martini, and enjoy live sport on state-of-the-art screens. fitzdares.com

Fitzdares, Upstairs

As is the case in the dining room, interior designer Rosanna Bossom based Fitzdares’ sitting room on a blend between a Mayfair home and members’ club; balancing comfort and style. One of three private rooms upstairs at the club, (each themed on a separate sport or game), the decorative accents chosen by Bossom include retro prints, racing reds, blues and greens, and accents like sisal and stripes. fitzdares.com

67 Pall Mall bar with leather bar stools

67 Pall Mall, Wine Bar

A private members’ club dedicated to foodies and wine connoisseurs, 67 Pall Mall is also a treat for design lovers. The cognac-leather stools, deep merlot leather sofas and vintage bank-teller style lamps make for a sumptuous setting to enjoy expert-curated wine lists and menus. We love the understated luxury touches like the polished brass bar and fluted bar stool columns. 67pallmall.com

67 Pall Mall seating area with peacock pattern armchairs

67 Pall Mall, The Lounge

A more eclectic feel takes over in 67 Pall Mall’s lounge, as you settle into distinctive, peacock-patterned winged armchairs. Warm wood panelled backdrops and clean lines help to balance playful pattern and colour with a more masculine aesthetic. 67pallmall.com

The Ned Parlour with red velvet armchairs and bar

Ned’s Club, The Parlour 

Set in the former Midland Bank building, the interior design of Ned’s Club is a collaboration between Soho House & Co and the Sydell Group that channels 1920s and 30s glamour. Fit for James Bond, The Parlour features acres of plush wine-red velvet and warm mahogany, and oozes private club-worthy opulence. We’d quite happily wile away an evening here, scotch in hand and surrounded by crooning jazz. thened.com

The Ned Long Bar with bar and gold seating area

Ned’s Club, The Long Bar

Taking a slightly different tact with colour schemes to The Parlour, the warmly-lit Long Bar is a blend of buttery golds and luxurious, mellow teals and greys. And who could fail to not fall in love with the peacock patterned bar stools? thened.com

Soho Greek street red drawing room with two chairs and fireplace

Soho House Greek Street, Red Drawing Room

No wonder you’re likely to find the top creatives in London lounging in Soho House’s Greek Street’s Red Drawing Room, with its oxblood-red walls, vibrant curated art and plush teal chairs to sink into. This relaxed and graceful yet playful design is a textbook example of how the ‘Soho House’ effect has revolutionised the interiors of London members’ club and private home alike.

Shoreditch house sitting room two yellow sofas

Shoreditch House, Sitting Room

The Soho House group took a more industrial tact with its Shoreditch outpost – mixing mustard velvets with dusky, washed-out pinks and statement abstract lights in the light-filled sitting room. Untouched exposed concrete ceilings and walls balanced by vast skylights enhance a more cool and contemporary vibe, perfect for your quintessential East End design lover.

Soho Farmhouse cabin seating area

Soho Farmhouse, Cabin 

Whilst not technically in London, you can’t talk about members’ club interiors without an honourable mention for the ultimate rural luxury escape of Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire. Cosy, rustic, and swathed in autumnal colours and textures, this one-bed cabin would be our first choice for a wintery getaway from the city. Photos by Soho House & Co. sohohouse.com

Annabel's Loos in the Mews tropical mosaic tiled wall and sink

Annabel’s, Loos in the Mews

1963-founded Annabel’s has always been at the pinnacle of London’s most rarified members’ clubs, but a recent re-design by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio has created even more intrigue. If you succeed in making it past the doorman, don’t miss a trip to its third-floor loos: inspired by rainforests and jungles, the breathtaking design features a hand carved 500kg crocodile basin, crafted from onyx. In the ladies, the pink onyx basins have been carved into bergenia flower heads. Photos by James McDonald. annabels.co.uk

Annabel's Rose Room fireplace, dining tables and wall mural

Annabel’s, The Rose Room

Moving into the Rose Room, Brudnizki chose a hand-painted English country garden mural by Gary Matt to overlook guests as they dine. Birds and animals weave throughout the design, and two murano chandeliers made of pink tulips hang overhead. Photos by James McDonald. annabels.co.uk

Milroy's the Dram House bar with blue velvet stools

Milroy’s, The Dram House

If a younger, hipper crowd and a character-filled setting is more your style: Milroy’s in Spitalfields is the club for you. Dedicated to the modern whiskey lover (with none of the pretension) the club’s Dram House takes design cues from plush Mayfair member’s clubs (hints of glowing brass and jewel coloured velvet) and blends them with cooler, more contemporary accents like exposed brick and brass mesh. thedramhouse.co.uk
