“A dog-friendly hidden London treasure!” -Paula Reed, Fashion Director Harvey Nichols
Set in the heart of Soho, The Society Club is a unique bookshop, gallery and cocktail bar. And it’s elegant and welcoming like a Bohemian sitting room. We stock and source an eclectic range of books, from rare signed first editions to the latest publications, and have specialist sections such as Vintage Erotica, Soho literature, 20th Century Modern 1st Editions, Charles Bukowski, Rupert Brooke and pulp fiction. With regular exhibition openings and intimate author talks, there’s always something interesting coming up. Come in for a peaceful tea or a classic cocktail and browse the books and pet the dogs.
We also serve as a gallery, and we host shows every month. All photography is for sale (numbered editions, signed) and availabled framed and unframed. We also have a growing catalog of work we love, if you want to stop by and have a flip-through.
A note: We are dog-friendly, and there will probably be a dog or two asleep in the corner.
We host really interesting events, including book launches, poetry readings and photo exhibitions. Visit our Events page to find out current details and updates.
If you are looking for a specific book or interesting in acquiring or adding to your collection, we can help you. Come in (or email us) about our Book Hunting Abilities. We’re ace at it.
If you’d like to rent the space out for a private party or large meeting, private dinner, launches, workshop, class or even need a good space for a photo shoot - please email us, call or (better yet) stop by. We even have a downstairs. What’s better than your own shop with a background of books and photography … with a full bar?
