The Groucho Club


Welcome to The Groucho Club. The world-renowned arts & media private members club nestled impressively in the centre of London's creative quarter.

In 1985, frustrated at the absence of a Club which women could freely use, some of the brightest minds in publishing put their heads together and those anarchic rebellious ladies decided to simply open their own - and it was from this maverick enterprise that the Groucho Club was born. Intended as a haven for the creative of soul and kindred of spirit, the Groucho quickly became a place of inspired sociability and subtle notoriety, and this legacy continues to imbue the character of the Club today. 

The legendary Club is still a home for Mavericks and is also a destination for some truly special events. Their incredible team can accommodate almost anything from intimate private dinners to meetings, launches and truly unforgettable parties.

Their incredible Executive Chef Erion Karaj can create Menus for any and all of these occasions and our stunning contemporary art collection forms a unique backdrop. 

Exclusivity is required of a members’ club, yet due to the nature of its founding, the Groucho has always been characterised by an intimate, warm inclusivity – reflecting the true individuality of its membership and as such Non-members are always welcome to book private events - they will welcome you into the club as a temporary Member for the duration of your booking.
