The over-the-top, ultra-lux club features four floors of endless imagination and regal charm. The club has restaurants, a spa, bars, two dining rooms, a salon for cigars and even a nightclub. One of the most popular areas of the club is the attic, a workspace floor where the young members can conduct business on their laptops and sip on coffee lattes. Even the bathrooms are the talk of the town with its palace-like decor. The pink bathroom is one of the most sought after Instagram backgrounds, flowers hovering the walls and decadent gold finishes and quartz sink basins and walls.
According to Astrid Harbord, the club’s membership advisor, “There is no set criteria in London society today… members ranging from fashion, tech, the art world, as well as hedge funders.” Though the diverse admittance of industry, the club initially began with a humble seventy two members. A tradition of the club is that all members’ business and gatherings are not to be discussed outside of the doors.The club is around fifty percent men, fifty percent women. Old school norms, men are required to wear a jacket and women are allowed to wear jeans in the downstairs nightclub. Mick Jagger is known to frequent the stomping grounds.
The notorious property used for Annabel’s is a townhouse in London’s elite, Berkeley Square. It is known for its superior architecture and historic charm. The interior bestows a contemporary meets regal and eclectic taste that bring the members into a dream.
