About the Club

The Chelsea Arts Club is owned by its Members and operated on their behalf.

All our Members share a passionate belief in the importance of a creative approach to life.

For them the Club is a home from home, somewhere to come after a hard day in the studio where they can be sure that they and their guests will receive a warm welcome.

Under the constitution of the Club, two thirds of the Members have to be practising artists – painters, sculptors, designers, photographers, architects; many of the other third work in the arts too, as writers, dancers or musicians, for instance.

For more information about Membership please visit the Membership page.

The Clubhouse has been described as a rambling country rectory. There’s a Billiards Room, with a bar and a snooker table; a Dining Room, with its Members’ table at which James Whistler once entertained Monet; and a large secluded garden.

Drinks and food are served seven days a week, and there are bedrooms upstairs which Members may book.

Exhibitions of Members’ work are held throughout the year, and each winter we run a lively arts events season, with talks and screenings, and performances showcasing the best young talent as well as household names.

If you would like to perform at the Club please contact our Events Director:

Sarah Delafield-Cook

“The place possesses a curious and rare charm.”
