Conversion of one of London’s oldest banks into the capital’s first wine members’ club. Located in St James’s, in the heart of clubland, 67 Pall Mall was developed as an exclusive location to enjoy the world’s rarest and finest wines.
Set in the west end of the former Hambros Bank, a Grade II listed building was converted it into a three-storey clubhouse with areas for dining, private functions and wine storage.
TGA’s high-end residential experience and historic building expertise were key in being able to sensitively develop mechanical and electrical services for this transformational scheme.
The project included a restored members’ lounge, mezzanine balcony, private dining room and wine library, all of which were all finished to the highest luxury specification to ensure the clubs’ members could enjoy the space in style. At basement level an events area for wine tastings and private functions was created, as well as a commercial kitchen.
The original bank vault was converted into a wine store and exclusive tasting space, with the remaining basement area becoming a labyrinth cellar for the wines. A passenger lift, two dumb waiters and a vibration-free wine hoist were provided, linking the cellar with the lounge and dining facilities.
