The Arts Club, London

The Arts Club is a private members club founded in 1863 in order to provide a safe haven for those people who had professional or amateur relationships with the Arts, Literature or Sciences.

In 1896, the Club relocated from its original home on Hanover Square to its present location at 40 Dover Street, giving its members a comfortable base in Mayfair.

Many outstanding figures in the history of art, literature and science have been members through the years including Charles Dickens, Wilkie Collins,Thomas Hughes, Paolo Tosti, Charles Halle, Franz Liszt, Frederic Leighton, Walter Sickert, John Everett Millais, Auguste Rodin and James McNeill Whistler, as well as an array of pre-eminent surgeons, solicitors and professionals.

2011 Relaunch

In September 2011, the Club re-launched after undergoing a transforming renovation and it continues to be a hub for creative and entrepreneurial patrons to come together, relax and swap ideas.
