The Oblique Life: London’s Boundary Breaking Members’ Club

Double acts to one side, there are some pretty impressive trios on our planet. From Harry, Ron and Hermione who have achieved some pretty spellbinding stuff together – you know, fighting dementors, three-headed dogs and he who can’t be named – to Alvin And The Chipmunks, Charlie’s Angels and no forgetting The Powerpuff Girls!

Suffice to say, a lot of good things can be achieved when a tantalising trio comes to the forefront – The Oblique Life being one of them. What the heck is this, you ask? Well, started by three brothers – and, as a result, another very successful trio – The Oblique Life is a London Members’ club and lifestyle management service that is injecting all sorts of magic into people’s lives.

From vloggers to influencers, “living my best life” is a slogan that has seeped into our psyches and one that these brothers hold dear. Through The Oblique Life, the brother’s mission was simple; they would help people live their best lives within a diverse community, to bring about purpose and a sense of belonging. Preach it!

So, what can you expect? Well, if you’re a sucker for all things lifestyle then listen up! The Oblique Life offer a bunch of memorable get togethers, from food and drink events at partnering venues that include The Lucky Pig Cocktail Bar, Opium, Goat and way more, to all things health, music, culture, travel, fashion and technology. Whether you’re ready to pop down your best Picasso onto a canvas, to living it up with loads of libations at a mixologist-heavy night at The Cocktail Club, there’s never a dull day with this epic members’ club.

Evident that this is a club that subverts the norm, it’s no surprise that there’s a hot-to-trot concierge and lifestyle management service thrown in. In a bid to make it happen, the service, quite literally called Make It Happen, handles all of your life admin – yep, we’re not kidding!

With this service, push your swizzle chair under your desks, shut your filo’s and indulge in having everything taken care for you, from restaurant bookings to recommendations of activities and places to eat drink, travel and more. It’s hardly surprising member Jennifer Hack has claimed “The Oblique Life has truly enriched my life and opened doors I never knew existed.”

With 75 venues and lifestyle brands at their helm, everyone who is anyone is fangirling over The Oblique Life. The Sumaria brothers, Romi, Shonil and Keyu, created the club with a mission to make meeting far more personable and fun, instead of journeying down to the various other members’ clubs splattered across that city that concern themselves over image and face value, The Oblique Life’s focus panders towards making in-depth and highly positive relationships.

Romi comments: “In a world that is increasingly uncertain, divided and polarised, our mission is to help people in London and beyond create a true sense of home away from home.

We feel this is achieved through the social events and experiences themselves, as opposed to the archaic, often fairly pretentious members’ venues that currently reside in London.”

Peppered with activities and values that centre around diversity and acceptance, The Oblique Life has sent shockwaves through the city with its communal manner, its buzz and its three brains that rival any Tom, Dick and Harry trio behind it. Oblique describes something ‘not expressed or done in a direct way,’ and this perfectly describes what this rebelliously cool club is all about; breaking boundaries, offering a range of events and going completely off-piste with the traditional script of what a members’ club should be.
