  • Club will open in Belgravia next month

    Men have long been able to join the exclusive members’ clubs of London, with some even excluding women.

    But now women will be able to join a private members’ club just for them when the Grace Belgravia opens next month.

    The club, which is named after the three mythical graces of charm, beauty and creativity, will charge 800 women £5,500 each per year to join.

    Female members will be able to relax in the spa and beauty salon, take part in yoga and pilates classes, drink bespoke teas and work out in the gym with personal trainers.

    They can also eat and drink in the restaurant and bar and make use of a library and screening room.

    Men will only be allowed to enter the premises on Thursdays, and only for dinner.

    Chris O’Donaghue, co–founder of the club, says: ‘Women are becoming more confident, more powerful and taking control, but there is not a single venue where they can all come together without the disruption of men.

    ‘What we are creating is a sorority. This will be a place where you leave your ego at the door.’
