The Esquire Townhouse 2018

The Esquire Townhouse is back.

That’s the good news.

Because after two knockout years, it’s become London’s preeminent pop up private members’ club, packing more into just four days this October than most clubs pack into an entire calendar year.

The bad news is that you’ll have to spend a whole, ugh, 12 seconds securing your completely free membership. If you take your time, that is. So what do they have on offer that could possibly be worth such a steep investment of time? Well, you’ll have access to…


The space itself is, as is becoming tradition, to be found within the classically Georgian urban mansion at  10-11 Carlton House Terrace (you’ll find it in St James’s, somewhere between Buckingham Palace and Downing Street). Inside, they’ve set aside an entire floor of the building for The Esquire Club.

Your membership allows you access to all of it, including the bar & lounge, the coffee shop, their complimentary in-house barbershop & grooming parlour (which comes courtesy of SEB MAN, open to walk-ins), the all-new Breitling Townhouse Loft (an easygoing lounge filled with its own completely bespoke furnishings), the cutting-edge LG SIGNATURE Screening Room (where you can enjoy a VIP screening environment of Netflix, films, video games etc.), and finally the LG SIGNATURE Clubhouse; an upmarket sports bar where you can get involved in sports chat & watch live games across the week.

Of course, to fill all of that glorious space, they’ve also lined up…


This being an Esquire gig, they’ve decided to cue up some talks worthy of an Esquire event; meaning they’ll have speakers like Peter Crouch, Tom Odell (who’ll also be performing tracks from his soon-to-be-released album Liberty Road), Sir Clive Woodward, Christian Louboutin, Krishnan Guru-Murthy, and BBQ legend Neil Rankin, as well as more than a dozen others.

If you’d rather your own mouth was the centre of attention, then you can dive into their foraging supper club from revered wild game restaurant Native (co-founder Imogen Davis will be on hand); a social dinner with England Rugby legend Simon Shaw; a martini masterclass from Salvatore Calabrese (who, for the uninitiated, has mixed bespoke cocktails for presidents, movie stars, and royalty alike); and a wine tasting evening from three Michelin Star restaurant Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester.

Oh, and to undo any pound-packing those particular events may be responsible for, there’s going to be an entire morning dedicated to fitness, with a bespoke programme of classes, challenges, and expert consultations.

And as a final cherry on top? They’re giving Nudge readers a 15% discount on ALL of these events, across the board. Just enter the code NUDGE15 at checkout.

You know what, it’s pretty much all good news.

NOTE: The Esquire Townhouse will run from 11th-14th October at 10-11 Carlton House Terrace. You can claim your free membership to the club, as well as getting tickets to the various events right HEREJust enter the code NUDGE15 to get 15% off across all tickets.
