Party Earth Review Like most of Mayfair’s subterranean clubs, Jalouse has a discreet entrance that can be hard to find – but unlike some of the area’s more raucous venues, the scene inside Jalouse is both stunning and intimate.

Members clubs in London have diversified since Bertie Wooster’s day. Instead of cigars and gentlemen’s bets, clubs today have all the trappings of cool nightspots. Celebrity members and the select few who gain admission can live in A-list style in exclusive company. Those who pay for the privilege of entering London members clubs want to live the high life and be among their fellow elite while doing so.
Occupying the top three floors of an otherwise nondescript warehouse building, Shoreditch House is an exclusive members-only club that offers celebrities and jet-setters a chance to unwind in comfort. In addition to its Games Room, Sitting Room, and bar, Shoreditch House features a marvelous rooftop garden where the It Crowd can relax in privacy.
Other clubs sometimes admit non-members for a price. Sleek club Boujis might allow non-members on slower nights – but hopefuls will need to impress the door staff. The small but chic subterranean venue features a long silver bar backlit with neon blue, as well as a dance floor surrounded by low tables and modular seating, a couple of separate lounge areas, and walls that radiate a moody ruby glow. The sultry mood gets more vivacious as the night goes on and the fashionable clientele takes to the dance floor to keep up with the beats until the wee hours.
Stilettos now outnumber tailcoats, and rock stars may be the new landed gentry, but London has kept the tradition of members club alive for those with the looks, money, or pedigree to join.
