The London Capital Club is one of the original members' clubs in London, purpose built over a century ago in 1913, when William Campbell Jones designed it as the Gresham Club. The Grade II listed building has retained its traditional character since then, even if it's experienced major steps forward in its renovation. In 1994 the club, officiated by Lord Mayor Sir Paul Newall, became the London Capital Club, and has been one of the premier spaces in the City for dining, drinking and meeting, with an ambience that is staunchly British.
London Capital Club members have exclusive access to the Club Bar and the Walbrook Grill, two rooms steeped in tradition, with dark mahogany wall panelling, beautiful Middle Eastern carpets and natural light coming in through large windows. The former excels in classic cocktails, wine and Champagne, whilst the latter serves up an array of British cuisine. There are a smattering of events spaces spread throughout the building, which can be rented by members at a significant discount and by non-members as well.
London Capital Club offers six exceptional meeting rooms. The largest and most popular area is the Oriental Room, which boasts beautiful Japanese wall-paintings alongside other striking Asian décor. Other sections are smaller in scale but match the classicism of the venue. The Wren room pays homage to London's most famous architect, and is well suited for intimate meetings. The Gresham Room can seat up to 16 people, whilst the Boardroom is a grand and impressive space with a masculine ambience.
The club as a whole offers a relaxing and exclusive haven in the heart of the City, on Abchurch Lane. Whether you're looking for the perfect site for a meeting or for Don Draper style kicks, The London Capital Club will fit the bill.
