Raffles Chelsea got its name from mogul Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles and it is a very exclusive members only club located on Kings Road with access available only via the Raffles guestlist. Guests seen on the Raffles guestlist include The Queen, Prince Charles and Princess Anne. The club holds a late licence and is open until 5am. And if her majesty approves, well there really is no reason for you not to check this place out, is there? Raffles Chelsea nightclub is situated on the World famous Kings Road and is one of Chelsea's most popular nightclubs.
It is a member's club and membership is available by invitation only. Raffles Chelsea runs a guestlist for entry on the weekend which is strictly at the discretion of the door.
Originally founded in 1967 it immediately became the place to be seen following the media coverage of the royal family. Raffles Chelsea continues to be the clubbing destination amongst the rich and famous.
The club offers a discreet and intimate clubbing experience. You will not find friendlier staff and the VIP service with a Raffles table booking continues if you book a table on one of the 2 floors.
The club now has new ownership as of 2018 and the brand continues to therefore move with the times. The Raffles guestlist is definately worth a look if you find yourself in the Chelsea area. The venue boasts a sparkling new design complete with the Raffles logo centrally positioned behind the dancefloor.
Raffles Chelsea caters for the famous and the exclusivity of this club therefore means that getting on the Raffles Chelsea guestlist is essential. Once you have made it inside the nightclub, several booths and a VIP area greets you.
Raffles is strictly a members only club and as becoming a member is quite expensive, it attracts a more mature clientele than some other nightclubs might do. Advantages are that once you're part of the 400 people community, there are special events like ski trips, that only members get to attend. There is however a chance of getting inside without all that hassle. Step one: get on the guestlist. Step two: successfully charm your way past the door staff!
Thanks to its late night license, the club is usually stays open until 5am in the morning, so none of its wealthy guests are sent home early. The club attracts some serious A-listers, so don't be surprised if you bump shoulders with Paris Hilton or one of the royals. It goes without saying that in a place like this, dressing accordingly is the key to success.
