CHARLIE GUESTLIST & CHARLIE TABLE BOOKINGS
Charlie Berkeley Street is one of Mayfair’s most exciting and exclusive nightclubs, and joining the Charlie guestlist or booking a Charlie table will leave you with insurpassable memories of the night. Named in honour of British comedy, film and music legend Charlie Chaplin, Charlie Berkeley Street seeks to embody the unforgettable legacy of Chaplin through its setting and ambiance. The atmosphere so elegantly personifies the era of the twenties (when Charlie Chaplin was in his prime), that only the music serves as a hint that it is in fact 2016, and upon exiting the club in the early hours of the morning (as you will doubtlessly be unable to leave before then) it will take you several minutes to readjust to 21st century life. Favored by the likes of British elite, such as model Amber Le Bon
and contemporary art dealer Blaise Patrick
, Charlie Berkeley Street is a privileged hangout spot for a crowd with exquisite taste, and is definitely worth a visit if you believe yourself to be a connoisseur of the most high-end London clubs available. However, due to its high class and level of demand, it is essential that you get yourself on the Charlie guestlist
, or complete a table booking!
On entering the venue, the first thing which catches your eye is the warmth of the interior. The club has been decked out in wood and leather furniture, with a focus on the vintage - which creates an indescribable atmosphere of charm and elegance. This is further enhanced by the presence of pool tables and fireplaces. By booking a Charlie table, you can ensure that you will be able to access one of the quirky green leather sofas. Add in the tastefully dim lighting and you have a setting unlike literally any other London club. Moreover, the walls are decorated in curated art, which mostly features Charlie Chaplin
himself, and which is definitely worth studying. The last touch to the air of the twenties is the dress of the waiters and waitresses - let’s just say bowler hats, waistcoats and braces make an appearance. Essentially, every last detail has been considered to create a club which even Chaplin would have been proud of. Apply for the getting into Charlie now by completing the guestlist booking form below!
However, if reading this has made you feel like Charlie Berkeley Street is not a modern enough venue for you, fear not: the club also features incredible sound systems, internationally renowned DJs, and entertainment of the highest standard. Effectively, regardless of whether you are more into vintage or modern in your clubbing tastes, you should try your hardest to get on the Charlie guestlist!
Furthermore, the club is home to the world’s first resident Haig Club room. Haig Club is a unique single grain Scotch Whisky, created as a partnership between Diageo, David Beckham, and entrepreneur Simon Fuller, and predicted by experts to be the next hot thing in whisky trends. Haig Club is definitely a drink for the refined, and the resident Haig Club room is therefore a space for the tasteful and sophisticated (such as anyone who finds themselves at Charlie). The most exclusive room in the club, and a contribution to the history of clubbing (Haig has been hailed as ‘the original clubman’s whisky’), the resident room is an epitome of high-end clubbing culture. You can experience this culture by booking a Charlie table
You may be thinking that features and an atmosphere such as described above did not come easily - and you would be right. Charlie Berkeley Street comes out of a £1 million refurbishment - one of the most luxurious projects which has taken place in London recently - and this investment can be clearly seen in the club’s presence. The masterminds behind the concept are three of London’s most successful nightclub managers: Luca Maggiora, Jordan Rocca, and Paul Chung. Between them, those three have sold over 20 million bottles of vodka, hosted almost all of Hollywood’s celebrities, and created internationally acclaimed projects such as Toyroom
and Project London
. The three impresarios are definite experts in their field, and consequently getting on the Charlie guestlist would be somewhat of an honour. The incredibly high standards of Charlie Berkeley Street do not come as a surprise, and can be enjoyed even more through a Charlie table booking.
So we have established that the interior is fantastic, the club has some unique features, and that any visitor can rest assured that they are in good hands. However, that is not all. As mentioned above, Charlie Berkeley Street regularly welcomes internationally recognised names in music, such as Leah Weller, DJ Kaveh, and DJ Tito. The club boasts a deep house and hip-hop setup, and on certain days has an open format, including genres such as electro, dance, and R&B, meaning there is something for anyone - you just need to pick the right day of the week for you! Charlie runs guestlists for any day, and a table booking at Charlie can be carried out at any moment.
Interior is important, music is important, but a club is nothing without its drinks, and a good club can be ruined by its menu. Fortunately, Charlie Berkeley Street is in no such danger. One of the central pieces of the setting is a light installation which reads ‘A man’s true character comes out when he is drunk’. It is therefore not surprising that the club provides many means to release its visitors true characters (should they wish to do so). Once on the Charlie guestlist and inside the club, champagne, vodka, gin, and whisky of the highest quality are all on offer, and those who have the means can purchase bottles of Dom Perignon
for £13,500. A Charlie table booking means you can enjoy your bottle in style!
Charlie Berkeley Street is all set to be the next big thing in London, and has already stirred up a whirlwind of talk and bookings. After its opening night, the club immediately pre-sold out for the following two weeks, and to this day remains notoriously difficult to access(although getting into Charlie with the guestlist does make this marginally easier!) This is due partially to the fact that the Charlie guestlist opts for quality over quantity - there are only 20 tables in the main room, meaning booking a Charlie table leads to an amazing night. However, this exclusiveness is also one of the main focuses of Maggiora and Rocca’s vision. One of the ways the duo have established their success is through maintaining venues which are frequented by only the right crowd. Moreover, given that their venues are often visited by celebrities, a high degree of secrecy is maintained at all the entrances and exits - and Charlie takes this to the next level. If you wish to enjoy an experience which feels much like being let in on a secret, then Charlie Berkeley Street is definitely the place for you - even upon entrance you will be subjected to hidden doors, tunnels, and private rooms. Only those who are let in on the secret will ever know truly what goes on behind the doors of Charlie!
But do not be put off! Although Charlie Berkeley Street is difficult to get in, and is fundamentally a members club (with members and table bookings receiving priority), non-members are still able to gain entrance. Just make sure you are dressed extremely well - the club states ‘smart and glamorous’ is the most appropriate choice of dress, and that you apply to be put on the guestlist. Alternatively, you can choose to book a table. As long as you are able to appreciate the kind of atmosphere Charlie is trying to promote, and make an attempt to fit into that atmosphere, you should have no issues with entrance.
Charlie Berkeley Street is a club with style, class, unforgettable vibes and amazing music. This club is without doubt worth a visit - apply for the Charlie guestlist or Charlie table booking today.
