The Commonwealth Club

About The Commonwealth Club

Right in the heart of the heart of London not five minutes’ walk from Trafalgar Square and Whitehall and the Strand sits The Commonwealth Club, a perfect venue to make special events very special indeed. It is a private members’ club that has a variety of excellent spaces available for private parties, launches, meetings and events. The decor is general bright, modern and rather breathtaking, with white walls, wood floors, bright banners and glass walls dividing the spaces. The Thorne Room can be divided into two for smaller meetings and groups. The Cinema has everything you need for private screenings and presentations. The Blue room is a medium-sized space, while the intimate Glass Dining Room is unique in London - raised glass-enclosed space with one white wall that could be used for Power Point presentations. What’s cooking? First class international cuisine, from all across the Commonwealth and beyond, superbly whipped up in the kitchen by Sous Chef Neil Cairns - London Club Chef of the Year 2002. A plethora of menus offer dishes like starter of pressed duck terrine with toasted brioche and apple and sloe jelly, main course of roast bluefin tuna with olive oil potatoes and nicoise garnish and pud of mini apple lattice with clove ice cream. There are Indian and Oriental menus and a selection of malt whiskies that would make Scotsmen of us all. Once again, this is a private members’ club and access is restricted to members only unless you’re booking a private function.
