Private clubs are usually elite and sometimes funky locations that cater to members only, including country clubs and smoking clubs, but they also double as exclusive private hire venues where you can have very cool celebrations in style. While the different types of members only clubs in London do have different restrictions on the type of event you can host, there are enough options that you can find a club suited to your event where the decorations and themes you want to have will shine. Much like private clubs visited by the ancient Greeks, you’ll find that the ambiance of a high society event provides an experience unlike anything else in town.

Being discreetly tucked away on Shaftsbury Avenue, Century may seem somewhat unassuming upon first glance, but it is certainly not a venue to be overlooked, being one of Soho’s very best hidden gems.

Featuring the best views of St. Paul’s Cathedral, The Sky Bar is a private luxury club that sits at the penthouse level. It features a lovely rooftop area with stunning vistas of the cathedral, and comfortably hosts up to 200 guests. Additionally the adjacent Royal Suite can also be hired, providing more than 22,500 square feet of breathtaking event space. There are comfortable sofas, and the roof is fully retractable, meaning you can enjoy the space regardless of the weather. Additionally there are on site facilities for both food and beverage, or you can arrange your own off site catering to suit the needs of any themed corporate or private event. The only limitation to the space is that they don’t allow DJs, as it’s a private club and not a music venue. Steps from Blackfriars, Mansion House, and St. Paul’s, it also offers plenty of transport options.
