I just realized that I’ve never been a member of any club. Well, technically, it’s not true, because as a teen I had membership to The Club, but that was just the name of my gym in Springfield, IL (true story: Nick & I met in a Jacuzzi at that gym!). But I’ve never been a member of a social club nor have I been inside of one. Or near one! 🙂 Not until my recent trip to London when Nick & I were invited to dine at LIBRARY, a very cool club in the heart of the famed Covent Garden district.
While LIBRARY is a members-only club you can get a day or a month pass or just stay there (it’s a boutique hotel as well) and automatically have temporary membership. As an avid reader (although these days I’ve become more of an avid audiobook listener as my eyes get tired from laptop/phone/gadgets) I was excited to see books everywhere and loved the vibe. According to their website – www.lib-rary.com – LIBRARY draws inspiration from literature, theatre, local community and sustainable design. They host all kinds of cultural events and provide a home away from home to their club members.
Nick & I had dinner (see my food photos – please take note of mushy peas near fish & chips, it’s such an English thing, I love it!) and even a mixed drink (because it was named after Roald Dahl – I had to!) and then the restaurant manager/super cool guy, Jean Baptiste, gave us a tour of the whole club. Nick & I loved this beautiful place. Here are a few photos from our evening. I put captions under some. Hope you like! 🙂

Have you been to LIBRARY? Are you a member of any social club or have you ever been? I’m really curious. Maybe it’s more of an English thing? Do you know?
