Chelsea Arts Club

September 6th 2011

I had lunch yesterday, with Camilla, at the Chelsea Arts Club. I hadn’t been there for a while and was pleased to see that very little had changed since the mid 1980’s. Sadly cameras are not allowed!

I ate French onion soup, served with ciabatta, rather than the normal croutons. We shared a bowl of extremely good chips and a pint of small, sweet, prawns and allioli. The soup was excellent and made up for the fact that I couldn’t take pictures. It reminded me that I must make my own soon…

The Chelsea Arts Club was established in 1891 as a private members club for artists. It’s located at 143 Old Church Street, Chelsea, SW3 6EB. The club has a large dining room, bar with full sized snooker table, bedrooms and garden. Between 1908 – 1958 Chelsea Arts Club staged fancy dress balls at the Royal Albert Hall, which were famous for nudity, rowdiness and drunken revelry!
