Old Etonians, WASPs, the ‘glitterati’. They all have access to private members clubs. So what if you are a Brightonion looking for an exclusive venue to hang out in? Well there’s now the chic new Blanch House Business Club, at Brighton’s original boutique hotel.
Club membership at Blanch House is by invitation or referral only and was created to bring together innovative leaders across Brighton’s varied and exciting business community. It aims to be a home from home relaxing environment for members to drop into. The bar is a good place to catch up on emails, have a coffee, or even have a glass of champagne (that’s always a très bon option in my opinion).
What’s chic about the Business Club at Blanch House:
- It’s free…so this time money doesn’t talk!
- It’s good for networking and meeting ‘like minded’ people…in person…not via social media (retro huh?).
- The hotly anticipated monthly supper clubs…the first is yet to be announced (plus exclusive invites to other networking events, supported by Blanch House partners Pernod Ricard and HT Whites).
- Members get a chic little member’s card (always nice to flash).
- Members have special rates on midweek bookings (good for visiting clients), conferencing and events, and private dining deals and more…
The new owners Jeremy and Kerry have put a lot of love into the transformation of Blanch House. The club is their next step on bringing new life to a hotel that’s definitely a classic part of the Brighton ‘scene’. Looking forward to my next visit already…
