The Union is a private members club in the heart of Soho, London.  We believe in the joy of human connections, so our purpose is to bring people together in a relaxed environment to enjoy great food and lively conversation. And on occasion, a fabulous bottle of wine from our lovingly curated cellar oils the wheels of chat and laughter amongst members and their friends.

We have enjoyed the continued patronage of many delightful members, largely from the world of arts and media, since we opened our doors 25yrs ago. Now having recently doubled the footprint of the club we are ambitious to grow our membership and events business whilst retaining the quality and integrity of our loyal and stellar members roster. The Union aims to be a home from home for all who step over the threshold. It’s a home of kindred spirits where a sense of community is paramount.
