Garrick Club

Listique’s Recommendation

We adore The Garrick Club’s superb dining options, unwavering hospitality, and excellent atmosphere. Perfect for a pre-theatre dinner, the historical building has an elegant interior, with terrific paintings of actors past and present covering the walls. Their lunches are particularly delightful, and the coffee room’s striking interior must be seen to be appreciated. The Garrick Club is so monumental in British history, that it was the scene of a famous quarrel between the two literary greats Dickens and Thackeray!

About Garrick Club

Founded in 1831, The Garrick Club is a gentleman’s club nestled in London’s Theatreland. Named after theatre icon David Garrick, the club houses a vast library of important theatrical manuscripts and the most comprehensive collection of theatrical paintings and drawings in existence. A truly historic establishment, notable members have included H.G wells and Charles Dickens. The lively atmosphere for which the Garrick Club has always been renowned is maintained by the founding committee’s assurance ‘’that it would be better that ten unobjectionable men should be excluded than one terrible bore should be admitted’’. Today the club boasts around 1,300 members, many of whom are the most ‘distinguished actors and men of letters in England’. Facilities on offer for members include seventeen en-suite bedrooms, the Coffee Room, The Irving Room and The Milne Room.
