Last minute gift ideas

Posted on by Beyond Bespoke

For Art, Health, Wine and Beauty lovers……

Instead of risking any unwanted gifts why not them to the ultimate launch into 2017 with membership from one of these unique London clubs and experiences. I have chosen four of my favourites to share with you. All available to purchase pre-Christmas.

Luxury in my mind is defined by the quality of one’s health and experiences.

Royal Ascot

Royal Ascot

Each Member shares in the prize money won by the Club’s horses and all racing and training expenses are included in the annual subscription. As well as providing the opportunity to attend races when a Club horse is running, the Club also encourages its Members to engage in the experience of racehorse ownership by organising annual events such as stable visits, overnight stays at the Jockey Club Rooms in Newmarket and the popular Yearling Parade Party.

Each Member may bring one guest per day and have access on all Ascot race days, to the two superb Club rooms, situated opposite each other in the Grandstand. The south side overlooks the Old Paddock Lawns and Pre-Parade Ring, while the north side overlooks the track and is situated above the winning line. Both Club rooms offer superb dining options serving complimentary canapés, lunch and afternoon tea, together with Bollinger champagne and wines throughout the day. There are also opportunities to bring additional guests during the year.

Members receive a complimentary Royal Enclosure badge for the week of Royal Ascot. In addition to the Club rooms, the Club’s marquee restaurant, situated in the Royal Enclosure Garden, provides a fabulous opportunity to purchase exclusive packages to entertain clients, friends or family, during the Royal Meeting.

The 2017 annual fee to include all the above, as well as participation in the Club’s exclusive stable of racehorses, is £12,150 + VAT, plus a one-off joining fee of £8,500 + VAT.

The Academicians Room

The Academicians Room

The Academicians’ Room is the Royal Academy’s private members club for artists and art lovers. It’s a place to feel at home; a place to come together in a club setting designed exclusively for members.

The club room began life in 1883 as an architectural gallery, before becoming the favourite haunt of the Academy’s artists as a private members club. The room has now entered a new phase in its rich history, with a fresh new look by the renowned Martin Brudnizki Design Studio. Vintage furnishings now create the intimate, bohemian ambience of an artist’s drawing room.

The Annual club membership is £300 and under 35’s can join for just £150 + joining fee.

Annual membership is from £625.00 for those of us in the country….with a one off joining fee.
