The South Kensington Club

The South Kensington Club is a member's club in the heart of South Kensington offering state of the art amenities and an oasis for it's members to relax and socialise. Originally the Pineapple Dance Studios, the building was more recently the infamous Harrington Club before its acquisition by Luca Del Bono (also known for RussianMind favourite Mari Vanna) who has since revamped it creating a home away from home.

Unparalleled facilities such as London's only Watsu Pool and Russian Banyans are only the beginning of the well being that SKC aims to deliver to its members. Two gym spaces and the very latest equipment adorn the floors here, personalised training programmes and yoga classes can be tailored to each member's needs. Those wishing to hire the gym privately can do so and invite friends to join in on the fun when hosting private classes. For those looking to relax, the club boasts its own bathhouse, complete with a Hammam and treatment rooms.

The social side of things also put SKC in a league of its own. The unpretentious and chilled out vibe makes it a great place to retreat whilst socialising with other members and friends. The club has a Mediterranean restaurant using only the finest ingredients and a seasonally changing menu to encourage a healthy balanced lifestyle. Next door, Iddu, an all-day café serves light meals, soups and salads and this side of the club is also open to non-members.

A large lounge bar, roof terrace and the club's voyager room are the focus of the upper social areas. Members will also have the chance to take part in the voyager lectures; a series of inspiring talks from adventurers across the globe and each talk will have a supplementary group trip that members can choose to join.
