One might presume that a venue named LIBRARY might not be the sexiest space. With images of dusty archivists and village cranks hoving in from either side, you'd be forgiven. But this is patently not the case at St Martin's Lane private members' club, which attracts a large swathe of London's finest minds and most familiar faces with a luxurious suite of amenities, fantastic food and beverage offerings, and intrinsic coolness above all.
Members of LIBRARY will have a connection with the literary world and a flair for the dramatic. The private members' club offers a multifaceted approach to enjoying London, so its guests can enjoy partying and relaxation in equal parts. The ground floor is an amalgam of dark woods, exposed brick and contemporary furniture, with a bar stretching nearly its length and a stage that has played host to the likes of Haim, Sebastian Tellier and Kelis. It's well suited as a louche evening hangout - the parties that we've attended so far have been off the hook.
Ascend the helical staircase to reach the mezzanine level, which offers an abundance of nooks and alcoves that are perfect for enjoying your favourite tipple, catching up on work, reading a novel, or more intimate assignations. There are the five bedrooms available for hire on the top floor. The penthouse is split-level with one of the most enviable terraces in central London, with views over the Coliseum Theatre.
Downstairs in the kitchen the chef's table and restaurant St Luke's Kitchen has opened, which offers some of London's finest comestibles. For those looking to better their health, LIBRARY will also be launching a massage and beauty treatment room as well as a fitness studio. A self-referential Library wouldn't be complete without books and members will have access to rare works when visiting.
