Home House Celebrates 25 Years
Home House proudly announces the celebration of its 25th anniversary, as this winter marks a quarter-century since London’s iconic members club opened its doors transforming the landscape of traditional members’ clubs in London and beyond.
A shrine to hedonism in the centre of London, Home House was originally commissioned by Lady Home as a sophisticated palace designed purely for enjoyment to entertain London’s high society of the 18th century. Famous at the time, Lady Home earned the nickname “Queen of Hell” for her “irascible behaviour and lavish parties”. Designed in 1773 by leading architects James Wyatt and Robert Adam, the walls that were home to many famous personalities throughout the years still host a collection of colourful characters and individuals today.
From Madonna making the Lady Islington Suite her home, to young royals partying until the early morning hours; from Pamela Anderson’s iconic birthday party to Annie Lennox’s fairy-tale wedding, Home House has played host to a tapestry of events that have left a mark on London’s culture and society. Famous faces like Paul McCartney and Boy George mingle with regular members, all of whom share a common love for ‘their club’.
To commemorate this milestone, Home House unveils a spectacular line up of events, including a grand New Year’s Eve Anniversary Ball on Sunday, 31st December 2023.
New Year’s Eve 25th Anniversary Ball
