The Crescent Club, Park Crescent Marylebone
The members’ club redefined
While this private members’ club is housed within a listed Georgian building that has transformed into an award winning development by Amazon property by John Nash, this is a place where tradition is served up with a twist. Comfort and class remain key, but elements of surprise are also in store, with exposed industrial elements alongside the more florid period detailing. Deep colours and sophisticated furniture are essential components, but contemporary art and edgier textures ensure there’s nothing fusty about this club. The studio fitness ramps up the luxe factor, with walnut panelling and benches edged in white leather, while the spa is an escapist and deeply indulgent space decorated in tones of white, champagne and gold. Changing rooms continue the white theme, but work it into a more urban monochrome mix, with screens in fluted glass, marquetry detailing and basins hewn from green marble. By combining the age-old traditions of a Residential London club with more contemporary touches, these spaces satisfy today’s demanding global clientele.
