Comments from Paul Martin:
The Arts Club was founded in 1863 for those connected either professionally or as amateurs in the Arts, Literature or Science. The Club occupies a very beautiful 18th Century town house of fine character.

As you enter the marbled hall, your eyes are drawn to the magnificent 18th century staircase incorporating the Stanley family crest. This staircase leads up to the Ante-Room which still has the original period fireplace and mouldings. You are then enticed into the elegant drawing room hung with fine portraits, and displaying an impressive collection of books and Club archives. The Drawing Room is ideal for cocktail parties, lunches, dinners or meetings.

From here you can wander through the bar into the Conservatory which overlooks the Club’s courtyard garden. With these extra rooms you are able to create a comfortable setting for larger receptions without losing any sense of intimacy. These rooms can hold up to 180 guests for a cocktail party or reception before dinner.

I enjoyed the opportunity of photographing a 50th birthday party celebration at The Arts Club. The character and ambience lends itself to fine photography, the stair case in particular being a main feature. The Arts Club is great venue for a reception, and for memorable wedding photography.
