The Army and Navy Club is affectionately known as "The Rag", and prides itself on the unique ambience of this elegant building. In the heart of St. James, these elements of a traditional officers' club make for a discrete and impressive feel in this Central London venue.
Founded in August 1837, the year Queen Victoria acceded to the Throne, the Club was formed to meet the needs of the many army officers wanting to join a Service Club, most of which were already full. The great Duke of Wellington said he would become neither a patron nor a Member unless membership was also offered to officers of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines. Hence, the "Army Club" became the Army and Navy Club.
To make your corporate event complete, the Army & Navy Club is centrally located in London's Mayfair (equi-distant between Bond Street and Charing Cross stations). Easily accessible, the Club prides itself on offering an excellent standard of service, supported by full-time professional event team staff. Emily Moss, the Club's Events Manager and her team, will help you plan and organise all aspects of your London event, paying particular attention to every single detail to make sure your event is a truly memorable one.
