The Ivy Club opened in September 2008, spanning three floors with an entrance discreetly concealed within a flower shop on West Street, Covent Garden.

Designer Martin Brudnizki has created a fresh and imaginative Art Deco oasis in the heart of the West End encompassing art work from Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin and Maggie Hambling – to name but a few.

The Ivy Club is formed of separate venues across three levels. Upon arrival through the Club’s floral entrance, members are quickly whisked away to a social retreat nestled within the hustle and bustle of Central London.

The Piano Bar is the first venue to greet members and guests. Designed with the traditional Ivy décor, this intimate setting plays home to a classic cocktail bar with a talented team of dedicated bartenders and a menu of classic cocktails and Ivy Club specials. During the day, The Piano Bar is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee with friends or to relish in some peace to work in private. In the evenings, as the lights dim, resident musicians take over The Piano Bar and tinkle the ivories throughout the evening.

The Drawing Room is the Club’s dining room, located above The Piano Bar, where the classic Ivy style continues through the timeless art pieces, opulent furnishings and of course, the diamond detail in the stain glass windows. This intimate dining setting is a relaxed environment to enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Our carefully curated à la carte menu changes every two weeks boasting fresh dishes prepared by our creative culinary team. The Drawing Room also homes a private dining room, The Library, discreetly located towards the rear of the room.

The Loft is the top floor of the Club. It’s contemporary, fresh, and bright design and layout (with a hint of Ivy throughout) provides an amazing backdrop for any member event or private dining event. The Club’s outdoor terrace can also be found here – a snug, secret garden hidden in the rooftop of one of London’s historic buildings.

The Ivy Club is located above The Ivy restaurant, which opened its doors as a café in 1917 when owners Abel Giandolini and Maître d’Hôtel Mario Gallati joined forces. Subsequent redevelopments over the years have evolved the dining room as we know it today, a space closely resembling the grand restaurant created by the original duo back in their heyday.

The name came from an exchange between Giandolini and a regular. After he had apologised for his building works, explaining his desire to create one of London’s finest dining rooms, the actress Alice Delysia replied in the words of a popular song of the day: “Don’t worry, we will always come to see you, we will cling together like the ivy.” The name stuck.

Ninety one years later The Ivy Club opened its doors as an oasis to members from the arts, media and business worlds, providing a place to work, relax and socialise in the heart of London’s West End.
