What an incredible eye O'Donnell has! She truly has a gift for combining vintage objects into beautiful vignettes.
Home House is filled with 18th century decor and great lighting accented for full-on social-climbing.
Home House is a former London abode of the Countess of Home and is exquisitely beautiful and has been lovingly restored to its former glory. A private members club, it attracts a young, aggressive clientele who are there as much to be seen as to see. Designer laptops couple with the latest fashions as people visit, gossip and have meetings. Located in Portman Square, it features four drawing rooms - light and airy with high ceilings and low, uncomfortable furniture - and a ground floor bar with dark leather club chairs and a big fireplace. There is also an outdoor garden space.
During the day, the drawing rooms are flooded with light and are welcoming for a coffee or drink. At night, it is much buzzier – at times full of people on the prowl – although it really does vary from day to evening and weeknight to weekend. The bar is much smaller and cozier with a large fireplace and a spectacular back-lit bar. Staff are generally efficient.
Food is available at Home House in the form of sandwiches and burgers. Quality is good, but be warned, the prices are high.
Teas and coffees at Home House come with a plate of tasty cookies. They have an extensive cocktail list, as well as a well-stocked cellar of wine and Champagne. Prices are what you would expect from a private members club in such ornate surroundings.
The Last Word
Home House is one of the most beautiful clubs in London – but it knows it. People have attitude to burn. You will need to go with a member, or join yourself – that is if you pass the membership committee. Get someone to take you for a drink just to see the stunning premises.
