London has a reputation for being a notoriously expensive night out, packed with unaffordable cocktails and overpriced venues. While this is true, there is a whole other side to London’s nightlife that will make you question the meaning of the word pricey. We’re talking about London’s private members’ clubs — the clubs that are so exclusive they require an annual fee and an application! If you’d like to find out more about some of these elite venues, keep reading.


Located at 46 Berkeley Square, Annabel’s is perhaps one of the most iconic private members’ clubs in London and is well known for its vibrant and eclectic interior and celebrity guestlist. The outside of this venue is transformed each Christmas, attracting large crowds of people to the festive display. Previous Christmases have seen the club dressed up as a gingerbread house and a merry-go-round! Annabel’s hand-picks its members and accepts applications, however applications are generally only considered if the applicant has been recommended by two current members. Celebrities including Margot Robbie, Cara Delevigne and Anna Wintour have been named as members of this venue.  

Annual membership: £3,250 + £1,850 joining fee
