116 Pall Mall is a stunning Georgian venue in the heart of London. Originally designed by John Nash, the architect behind Marble Arch and Brighton Pavilion; it dates from the early 1820s and is Grade I listed. Originally the home to the United Services Club, the building contains many of the clubs original treasures.
