Food & Drink Awards 2022 Page 51 LUXlife Food & Drink Awards 2022 Exemplary service, classy interiors, delectable beverages, and delicate food is the bare minimum available for those who visit one of Eight Club’s stylish locations. With a swathe of services and amenities across two sites, Eight is a luxury sanctuary – and hideaway – from the rush of London life. Eight Club Private Dining & Lifestyle Club of the Year 2022 - South East England A look at the sea of glowing reviews reveals how essential food and beverage is to the Eight Club experience. Whether dining in the Quartier Restaurant, working lunches in meeting rooms, event catering, or simply enjoying a drink or snack in the lounge, no matter how far you scroll, you will read a visitor praising the delicacies they were served – often with a picture or two accompanying their declaration to come again. Eight makes every effort to impress, and it is quite enthusiastically praised for doing so. So much so that you might be surprised to hear it is not a restaurant; Eight Club is a 360 luxury members’ club, split across locations in Bank and Moorgate to provide an experience like no other. The clubs offer the highest possible standard of premium services and amenities, every element hand-picked and designed in line with the founder’s vision of excellence. From the artwork that adorns the walls to the high-end gym facilities or elegant meeting spaces, each Eight club oozes relaxed sophistication with all the trappings and expectations of modern-day life and luxury. Members are not only treated to stunning aesthetics and a great atmosphere, but they are spoiled for choice on what they can do with their time and access. With members and clients typically including city professionals and business owners, it caters its services to meet their needs and wants. This is because Eight aspires to be more than just a club; Eight is a community where like-minded individuals with similar passions can come together to relax and enjoy in one another’s company. Members are spoiled for choice with Eight’s broad scope of facilities; its meeting rooms, pool tables, fine dining restaurant and cinema is far from the complete list of what is available. The Quartier Restaurant, found on the club’s first floor, makes for an especially beautiful dining experience, complete with floor-toceiling windows and a contemporary menu. It works perfectly for quick business lunches – with its du jour menu – or indulgent dinners in the evening. Meanwhile, one of the more recent inclusions is the Eight Core service, the Eight brand excellence, care, and mindfulness applied to an innovative and well-furnished fitness club. Whether a member’s goal is to improve their strength and conditioning, weight loss or core stability, everything is covered in Eight Core. It offers an impressive range of bespoke training classes and is open six days a week, from six am until late. On top of this, it has a team of highly professional personal trainers across a range of disciplines to tailor a fitness schedule that fits in and around the busy lives of Eight’s members. To complement this service and ensure its members’ health and well-being, Eight Core hosts an experienced Sports Medicine Doctor with links to major private hospital groups in Central London and throughout the UK. He quickly diagnoses injury and provides robust and considered steps to encourage recovery. Whether the best course of action is a conservative option like working with physiotherapists, soft tissue therapists or osteopaths, to more invasive options such as injections and surgery, Eight Core members are as well cared for as they are provided for. This is the second year that Eight Club has won the Private Dining & Lifestyle Club in the South East of England, with the choice of victor as evident this year as in 2021. Beyond the continued exacting standards of care and the facilities, the way the club has expanded its services in the last 12 months, particularly with Eight Core, was equally as impressive. Whether at the Bank or Moorgate clubs, members or simple visitors cannot ignore the opulence of their surroundings, the quality of the amenities and services alongside the enthusiastic and diligent staff who bring it all together; Eight Club is an unforgettable experience.
