The Gentlemen’s Clubs of London – it’s a world which is familiar to an exclusive few, often influential individuals.
And if you’re a member of the fairer sex, don’t count of becoming a member of these clubs any time soon (of most of them, anyway!). They are, to this day, a largely male domain. The world itself is lavish and decadent, with some clubs opting for modern luxuries, while others cling to traditional splendour (some in better condition than others).
It’s a fascinating world, and it’s one this book by Anthony Lejeune captures perfectly with historical accounts and beautiful photographs – many published here for the very first time.
A voyeuristic and educational journey into some of London’s most elitist, extravagant and old-fashioned establishments.
