The AllBright: London’s first women-only private members’ club granted alcohol licence
Billed as “an oasis in the heart of the capital for working women”, The AllBright is set to open in a five-storey Georgian townhouse in Fitzrovia early next year - writes standard.co.uk.
It is the brainchild of entrepreneur Debbie Wosskow and former Hearst magazines boss Anna Jones, who hope the club will attract women from arts and media, politics and business.
For £600 a year plus a £250 joining fee, founding members will have spaces to work, host meetings and network, as well as a chance to relax at the club’s treatment rooms
Ms Wosskow and Ms Jones asked Westminster council for an alcohol licence for activities that “may include a glass of wine with a networking lunch; champagne to celebrate a business deal; or drinks served during an event in the function rooms”.
The application, which would allow the 170-capacity club to serve drink until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, had received objections from the Met police and Westminster’s licensing department over concerns about alcohol-fuelled disorder in the West End.
The club is confident that the proposed use will not add to the cumulative impact.
