UK Travel: A Coronavirus Update

Society Club

12 Ingestre Place Soho London W1F 0JF

Booksellers, gallery owners, toast makers and cake bakers, Society Club owners Robert Pereno and his wife Babette are proud flag-wavers for Soho’s free-spirited heritage – in the words of their sign, they set out to offer ‘the best of all possible things’. You’re sure of a warm welcome at their delightfully eccentric backstreet premises, whether you’ve come to browse the books, admire the latest show of prints or photos, or take a seat at the long, sociable central table and unwind over a mug of hot chocolate and a homemade cookie. As well as hosting book and CD launch parties, the club puts on a consistently stimulating programme of events in nearby venues like the Sanctum Hotel and the Sun & 13 Cantons pub, such as silent movie nights, re-enactments of Keith Richards’ 1960s drugs trial, or talks on the Windmill Theatre’s racy past.
