The Groucho Club

The Groucho Club

The Groucho Club private members club was established in 1985 and has a target membership base of people primarily from the creative industries including media, publishing, entertainment and arts.

The club itself, located in Dean Street Soho, is formed of multiple different rooms, including lounge areas and a private dining room. The room titles include The Gennaro Room, The Mackintosh Room, and the Mary-Lou Room. There is also accommodation available including single and double rooms all of which come with a full Groucho breakfast included and served either in your room or in the restaurant.

The Groucho club is famed for its collection of contemporary art on display on its walls. Artists featured include Damien Hirst, Banksy, Stella Vine and Will Ayres.

Celebrities known to have been Groucho Club members include Stephen Fry, Lily Allen and Noel Gallagher among others in the entertainment industry. 

The Groucho club’s many rooms can be hired out for private events. The Snooker Room is perfect for dinners, The Mackintosh Room ideal for dinners and meetings and The Club Room is great for more informal gatherings. 

The music is provided by Rod Melvin who plays the piano in the downstairs lounge a few nights per week. Rod has been a long standing figure for many years at The Groucho Club and well known to many of the club’s members.

The Groucho Club is certainly a step away from other London private members clubs with a unique charm and style that you won’t find elsewhere. It is frequented by a host of colourful characters and certainly not for a pretentious or stuffy crowd.

Membership to The Groucho Club is £950 per year plus a £250 joining fee. Applications need to be proposed and seconded by two current members, and applicants should have a creative role.
