A private members club since 1837
The Rag is one of London’s most prestigious private clubs with a military heritage - welcoming members from around the globe, all walks of life and from both military and non-military backgrounds.
WELCOME One of London’s hidden gems, situated in the heart of London at 36 Pall Mall and with views over St James’s Square, The Rag exudes character and charm, offering members a luxury home from home that’s familiar, comfortable and welcoming. The Club has an impressive 180 year history, founded in 1837 with the Duke of Wellington as one of its original Members. Today, HM The Queen is the Club’s Royal Patron. Originally a private club for military officers, the Club now welcomes professional men and women from both military and civilian backgrounds who like to enjoy all the benefits that club membership offers.
YOU DONâ€™T HAVE TO BE IN THE MILITARY TO BECOME A MEMBER OF THE RAG We welcome applications from private individuals and corporate bodies, who are looking for a central London home that can cater for their business, leisure and social needs. Combining tradition with modern, comfortable amenities, The Rag offers opportunities to meet fellow Members and friends, organise professional meetings in a secure environment at a prestigious address, or simply gather loved ones for a relaxed evening or private event.
BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP There are many benefits to membership and myriad ways to make the most of the Club. Enjoy exquisite food in the Dining Room, relax with a drink in the Ribbon Bar & Brasserie with its open air terrace, or join in one of the many events, talks or lectures. Perhaps hold a business conference or a social gathering in one of our elegant private rooms and take advantage of the competitively priced accommodation and private underground parking. Benefits of membership are not confined to London, since The Rag enjoys reciprocal arrangements with over 100 carefully selected clubs worldwide. Whether travelling for business or pleasure, our Members are always assured a warm welcome.
Members also have access to a wide range of external privileges, including free use of state-of-the-art gym facilities, discounts from local retailers, theatres and other approved affiliate organisations. Regular newsletters ensure you donâ€™t miss out on a good offer or the chance to see the latest London show or exhibition. With an in-house hairdresser and access to a local tailor and dry-cleaner, The Rag offers a first-class concierge service and prides itself in making Membersâ€™ lives easier.
BUSINESS & CORPORATE Overlooking St Jamesâ€™s Square, our dedicated Business Centre offers the perfect flexible working environment for freelancers and professionals on the go. Our fully serviced office facilities, complete with hot desks, break-out spaces and at-desk catering options can be used for ad-hoc meetings, private working or a quiet space away from the office. Members also have the opportunity to host meetings, from small, intimate gatherings, through to boardroom level and theatre-style events for up to 150 guests with all the audio-visual and conference call facilities youâ€™d expect. In addition, the Club can offer a range of quick and easy refreshment options, including buffet style lunches and informal dining. There is also a gated secure underground car park for ease of access and security.
