Thursday 21 August: a very Fancy posh pub crawl|Fantastic evening thanks to Mina and her magic membership card for allowing us access in lots of fancy private clubs around Pall Mall. We had a drink at The Royal Over-Seas League , The Reform Club, The Athenaeum club, The East India Club and finished the night at the In and Out Club.
The photos are a bit blurry and dark as they were sneaky ones when the rooms where emptied of members, also my camera is on its last leg i fear (the pimms soak incident didn't help it's already aging nature last week)
The Royal Over-seas League...(too busy to take some inside but i cheated and added some google ones too to illustrate). Love the staircase, this wasn't a planned visit but we were so cold from eating in the park so perfect to have tea near by green park. http://www.rosl.org.uk/
The Reform Club, as amazing as i remembered from my tour, few years back, one of my favorite decor wise. Very grand and we had a little wonder around the rooms not in use, it was also quite quiet so ended up having one the the bar/drawing room for ourselves. http://www.reformclub.com/ —
The Athenaeum Club, another lovely one, they were so nice to us and a very nice atmosphere, we pretty much had the yellow drawing room to ourselves. Only saw one of the library room was open but what a room with a metal balustrade and looking online the rest of the library rooms are quite something too. A great old fashion wood panel mirror lift too ...http://www.athenaeumclub.co.uk/ —
The East India Club, this one was of even more interest to Simon as it had a Waterloo room and the library had lots of books on colonial and military history. Very cheap bar prices, a pleased Alyson with a under £3 gin&tonic and i had my tea in very fancy china pot
