With its focus on wellness, the South Kensington Club has proved that it is possible to combine excess with exercise in a London members club. ‘The model of the old members club is now too antiquated, they were often not unisex and weren’t diverse enough in their offering,’ says Luca del Bono, one of the founders. ‘The rules were too strict for people to enjoy as they should!’ Members can enjoy the gym, numerous fitness classes, Mediterranean restaurant and a bathhouse featuring a banya and a watsu pool. The beautifully constructed space of the club, with seductive lighting, huge sofas and an alluring bar (with sensational cocktail menu), feels more like a country retreat for house parties than a club in the centre of London.
