Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles has a long and vibrant history. Founded in 1967 by Peter Evans, an established restaurateur accredited with bringing steak houses to London, its King’s road location was the stomping ground of the likes of the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton and Vivienne Westwood. This iconic Chelsea night club has been frequented by many of the world’s most renowned characters. Everyone from Princess Margaret, Lord Snowdon and Lichfield through to Barbra Streisand and former Prime Minister of Canada, Pierre Trudeau, has passed through the legendary doors.

From the iridescent dance floor to the deep comfortable sofas, one can choose to relax or get up and dance, depending on how the night progresses. If you’re lucky, you may happen upon one of the many celebrity clients – Benicio del Toro, the Delevingne sisters, David Gandy, Lewis Hamilton, James Blunt, Gemma Arterton, Rosamund Pike, Keira Knightley, David Walliams and Jenson Button have all partied here - just remember to act naturally.

Considered a household name, Raffles is renowned for delivering a luxury service to its discerning members. Raffles has also expanded beyond the walls of its Chelsea club to establish itself as a lifestyle choice by launching the Raffles Lifestyle Membership scheme in 2012. Members benefit from intimate performances from the world’s leading music acts and an in-house bespoke event service and for those members wishing to head farther afield, Raffles also offers special rates with its affiliate clubs both home and abroad, as well as luxury travel with Raffles Retreats.

Raffles is a classic place to go on a night out if you are on the Kings Road or in Chelsea! I would say to get there later than earlier - last time it wasn't really busy until about 1 am - the drinks are expensive but then you get what you pay for!
