The Gentlemen’s Clubs of London: A Colorful History of London’s Lounge Scene

First published in 1979, Anthony Lejeune’s most revered book uncovers a unique, rare view into most elite and famous clubs frequented by London society. Detailing the grace, ambience and scandal that enveloped the nightlife scene, Lejeune’s revelations on the elegant, stunning and even quirky London locales stand as an affectionate compliment to Britain’s after-hours history. There are at least 50 touching anecdotes, tales and black and white and color photographs to aid in Lejeune’s descriptions. Lejeune tells the lively narrative of everything from the inception of Buck’s Fizz (a mix of champagne and orange juice) to the Reform Club, the scene of Around the World in 80 Days beautifully.
