Home House represents a truly unique experience in the concept of private members clubs. All that you would expect in terms of luxury, service and privacy are the club’s cherished hallmarks. Located across the Georgian town houses at 19, 20 and 21 Portman Square, Home House Private Members Club offers its affiliates the dramatic fusion of the old and new. Designed by James Wyatt in 1773 with Robert Adam interiors, the elegance and grandeur of the Club is perfectly juxtaposed with cutting edge minimalist interiors at ‘21’, with an edgy bar and reception area designed by internationally renowned architect, Zaha Hadid and finished in sumptuous detail by the celebrated Candy & Candy team.
Home House is unique, a vibrant melting pot of different cultures and a community; a hub from which members’ base both social and professional lives. An exceptional range of facilities is offered to members including two restaurants, bars, decadent party rooms, an intimate garden for al fresco dining, elegant suites and the Vaults for late night pod perjury where the fun continues into the early hours of the morning. The House boasts an enviable calendar of social events and societies from Backgammon to the Shooting Society and, not least of all, legendary members’ parties throughout the year.
For the first time since its inception, The Restaurant at Home House overlooking Portman Square has undergone a significant makeover with Russell Sage Studio undertaking the transformational interior refurbishment. The Georgian rooms now feature a beautiful bar, complete with a lavish Crustacea display, elegant new tables, chairs and luxurious booth-style seating to enhance the vibrant brasserie ambiance.
Speaking to Premier Hospitality magazine, Home House General Manager, Joel Williams, commented: “It has been incredibly well received, transitioning from a formal to informal environment. Members often commence their evening with a cocktail or glass of champagne at the newly installed bar, located in the foreground of the large windows overlooking the garden, which truly sets the tone for the evening ahead, before moving to restaurant with views over the formal gardens of Portman Square.”
Executive Chef, Fabio Petrucci, whose culinary background includes Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons and Annabel’s, showcases a fresh summer menu incorporating the very best of British produce including Hereford veal, Norfolk chicken and Suffolk lamb. Joel added: “The menu is modern British brasserie with signature dishes and an array of British seafood including Cornish Halibut, Dorset Crab Salad and Cornwall Squid Tagliatelle, our ingredients are locally sourced where possible maintaining British Heritage throughout.”
Joel concluded: “The refurbishment gives our membership a modern, vibrant brasserie and bar in a unique environment. It works for either half a dozen Oysters and a glass of wine at the bar or a full à la carte dining experience. Our service is knowledgeable with stacks of personality. Very Home House!”
