One of the best feelings in life is walking briskly through a door labelled ‘private’, sweeping past a doorman and being welcomed like you really belong. That can often come with a hefty price tag though and for the young guns of London the exclusive perks, invitations and access that come with a membership like that might seem better suited for their boss. Well, welcome to Sesame London, a new way to enjoy the city’s top bars, clubs and venues, designed for young professionals.
Sesame has partnered with some of London’s best hot spots (eight already with more on the way), including big hitters such as 100 Wardour Street, noted for its live music and smooth decor, and Handbook’s favourite, M Restaurants, who have private members’ clubs in Bank and Victoria. Sesame members can enjoy exclusive access and benefits to these venues, including complimentary breakfast at M every week day, and the hire of their private Den twice a year, without charge. Members have keycode access to speakeasy bar Keystone Crescent in King’s Cross, and can come and go as they please to The Library in Covent Garden – a Library like no other, with it’s impressive double-height bar, restaurant and six bookable rooms.
What’s more, members are offered complimentary invites to a wide variety of events and experiences every month designed to take the pricey weight of entertaining mates and clients alike. Whether it’s a day at Ascot, wagyu masterclass in the city or Sesame’s favourite evening of champagne-sabering, you can expect them to fill up your social calendar.
The start-up is the brainchild of three Durham graduates who decided young working professionals can face an exclusive and expensive experience in exploring, entertaining and networking in London. Open, Sesame, the all-in-one platform giving young professionals everything they need to open up London for an affordable price.
At just £30 a month with no contract, it’s not hard to see why it’s so attractive. So, whether it’s for meetings, relaxation or recreation, or indeed anyone who just enjoys the high-life, (and free breakfasts), Sesame has you covered.
From Soho to St Pauls, say ‘open Sesame’ to London’s latest opening, and have somewhere to call base, no matter where you are in London.
