Century Club – Members Only

London has a lot of private, members only clubs. They range in interests from military clubs to general networking and everything in between. Depending on the club, the facilities will differ. Most clubs will offer a bar, restaurant, and areas for members to relax and network amongst other members.

If you belong to a club in your city, many times that club will have reciprocity agreements with clubs in other cities, so that you can visit while you are in town; and that’s how I ended up at the Century Club on a recent trip to London.

I went through a list of clubs my local club had reciprocity agreements with, and this one appealed to me for its modern facilities and younger members. I booked a dinner and here’s how it went.

The club is named for the 100+ steps that are inside the club to go to the various floors (they have an elevator too). Upon arrival we went to the restaurant and had a bit of a wait to be seated. The space was nice and inviting and there was a live music which was nice.

I started with the liver parfait. It was pretty good but the portion was too big for a starter.

For my main, I had the cod with curried lentils. It was an ok dish. Nothing outstanding.

After dinner we took some time to explore the club. On one floor there was a packed bar and on the top floor, another bar with really nice, modern decor and access to the rooftop bar.

Overall, this is a nice space to have a drink and meet some friends. I would skip the meal though.
