A bibliophile’s leather bound refuge, Library sits in the heart of theatre land on St Martin’s Lane, a stone’s throw from Covent Garden. With modern, well lit rooms and a colourful, open plan mezzanine reading space, the atmosphere is unpretentious and considerably different from the traditional London club. The concept is to create a library environment for the enjoyable consumption of literature, which members never have to leave. As well as a restaurant, the townhouse setting is complemented by a wellness space used for meditation and yoga classes. Those who have spent too much time in town selfishly reading at the club rather than selflessly shopping, can make use of the gift service provided. Spear’s also encourages patrons to sample the house gin.
