Ten-Trinity-Square-London

The lowdown: Ten Trinity Square seamlessly combines 2,000 years of London heritage with the city’s modern ideals. The club’s residence has long held a certain level of prestige – prior to the Great Fire of London, the building was the Navy Office where Samuel Pepys worked, and in 1922 was opened by Prime Minister David Lloyd George as the headquarters of the Port of London Authority. Nestled in the heart of the cosmopolitan city of London, the club now focuses on creating a space for professionals from across the world.

International networking is therefore the ethos here, with the club striving to marry business and culture within its elegant, walnut-panelled venue. Indoors, the cigar lounge, billiards room and dining and bar areas are designed to create a relaxed and connective atmosphere. The highlight is the extensive wine store, which hosts the UK’s largest collection of Château Latour wines, which can be sampled at one of the club’s many tasting dinners. The Ten Trinity Square property is also home to the Four Seasons Hotel and its 41 private residences, restaurants and spa, with the club located on the second floor and accessed via a separate entrance.

The club is passionate about introducing its members to different cultures and facilitating a hub of international exposure and understanding. Members are all high achievers in their fields, which range from business and politics to academia and arts. Though its setting may be antique, Ten Trinity Square is an institution that caters to metropolitan desires.

chalet-jackson-megeve

The lowdown: There’s nothing quite like staying on board your own yacht but, if it’s berthed in the South of France and you’re heading to New York for business or fancy a holiday in Thailand, it’s not always the most practical option. Gilt Global, a private members club for owners of elite ‘assets’, is offering the perfect solution. For an annual fee members are able to swap stays at their high-end residences, homes and yachts granting access to some of the world’s finest private properties. If you're looking for the perfect mountain retreat for the ski season then how about Chalet Jackson in Megève (pictured) or why not consider the lavish 24-bedroom Kinross House near Edinburgh, Scotland for the most opulent of New Year's Eve parties? Other options currently include a private island in the Maldives, a palatial French château and an exquisite hilltop villa in Mallorca.

How to join: Members must either own their own luxury residence, yacht or similar - which will be assessed for suitability by Gilt Global - or must be recommended by a current member. The annual fee for owner members is £5,000 and £1,000 for guest members. Visit giltglobal.com.
