House of St Barnabas

The House of St Barnabas, London’s first not-for-profit members club is now officially open for business and is celebrating today with the inauguration of its exhibition and permanent art collection, The Collective showcasing works all donated, consigned or loaned by artists, galleries and curators.

HOSB has been a charity since 1846 and now supports London’s homeless back into work through its Employment Academy. The new club features a restaurant and bar, meeting rooms and event spaces and secluded courtyard garden complete with wood-fire oven for pizza and artisan flat breads while the actual restaurant offers dining in the style of the Grand European Brassieres.

The Collective at The House of St Barnabas, curated by Katie Heller of Patch London, will showcase a permanent art collection and revolving exhibitions featuring artists such as Tracey Emin, Jeremy Deller, Mark Titchner, Rankin, Margot Bowman, Hew Locke, Whitney McVeigh and Chris Levine. Select works will be on sale, with a percentage of sales going directly towards the work of the charity.

The music throughout the club is curated by music director Sav Remzi, consultant for ventures such as the Blue Note Club in Shoreditch, Nuphonic Records and the early Lovebox years at Victoria Park.

Architect and designer Grainne Weber is behind the interior design which mixes contemporary and classical features from refurbished woodcraft to antique glass and the aptly named Hannah Gardner, Head Gardener at Garsington Manor created the garden in collaboration with Sara Ingrams.
