London’s The Arts Club to open first international venue in Dubai

Membership applications are now open
One of London's most prestigious private members' clubs is slated to open in 2020. Here's what we know so far...

Just when we thought there wasn’t another building that could make Dubai’s skyline prettier than it already is, the city has announced that it will be welcoming one of London‘s most famous private members’ clubs to a new development in DIFC, specifically in the new ICD Brookfield Place development (designed by British architects Foster and Partners).

Called The Arts Club, the arts and cultural hub founded by Charles Dickens and Anthony Trollope in London in the 1800s, will take over 40,000 sq. ft. of indoor floor space across five levels and an additional 23,000 sq. ft. outdoors, where members will enjoy a rooftop terrace, three restaurants, a cigar club, art exhibition spaces and a business centre.

With an aim to expand around the globe, The Arts Club in Dubai marks the first overseas site for the members-only club, with plans to have a future outpost in Los Angeles coming soon, and guess what? Membership applications are now open.

Whilst a select group of applicants are invited to join the club as Founding Members, potential future members can join a range of different membership categories including the Full, Spouse and Young Memberships. There is also an International Membership option, which can be added to each category, giving Dubai and London members access to each of the clubs.
