3 St. James’s Square – London’s Newest Private Members Club
December 6, 2017
3 St. James’s Square in the heart of the Haymarket area of London, has to be the most technologically advanced members club I’ve ever had the pleasure to step inside.
Benefitting from plenty of natural light brought in to the historic building by the stunning sky lights, 3 St James’s Square boasts a beautiful members lounge, separate library and champagne bar, spacious gym and studio, luxurious spa and sauna and Golf Academy.
It’s relatively small compared to other sprawling clubs, designed purposely this way to ensure that the club always provides its members with a friendly, bespoke and personal service every time you visit. The gym for example, will only be visited each day by approximately 50-70 people guaranteeing the highest quality attention for each and every member.
The sauna and spa areas are absolutely stunning, with the sauna benefitting from another of those beautiful sky lights so you can relax in the solarium comfortably hidden away from the rain, wind or snow outside.
The changing rooms are particularly luxurious – the kind you’ll probably take far longer to get ready in than you should! Equipped with huge walk-in rainfall showers, top-of-the-range Dyson hairdryers (fitted in the male changing rooms too), and an abundance of high end products (Elemis, Chanel No. 5 and Valentino to name just a few in the ladies and with Tom Ford and Allure among the offerings for the men), every single inch of 3 St. James’s Square has been designed with a first class experience in mind.
The Golf Academy will be a particular draw to golfing professionals and amateurs with a purpose-built simulator room and a choice of programmes, while the kenesis machine in the gym is also useful for perfecting those all important swings. The simulator room doubles up as a screening room and can be booked for private screenings to watch rugby, football or tennis, which comes with a license for drinks to be served here too.
The expansive gym area is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment while the Technogym machines can be linked up with the app allowing you to track your progress, follow plans and even chat to your PT anywhere in the world! The Mind and Body studios used for hot yoga, yoga and pilates also features a divine live juniper wall – this is a gym that smells like a spa!
Probably most impressive is the body scanning suite in the consultation room Along with the other services the gym provides on joining (including DNA testing), the scanner works for four second and in that time can take your exact measurements which you can then log into and view on a secure platform to see your 3d image. Accurate to the very nearest millimetre, and being exclusively used by 3 St. James’s Square, the body scanner software can even overlay before and after images to show exactly how your tailor-made exercise plan has helped you tone up or lose inches.
Boasting the first Somadome in the UK, 3 St. James’s Square’s personal meditation dome immerses you in light and colour, helping to regulate and control the autonomic nervous system and stimulating production of melatonin and cortisol – vital for well being (watch out for a further post on the Somadome experience!)
Being lucky enough to experience the luxury of a massage at the hands of the fabulous Lauren, I can vouch for the quality of the treatments at the club. The treatment rooms are luxurious, spacious and well lit, filled with a tonne of gorgeous beauty products and oils used in each session. Each of the carefully selected therapists have a wealth of knowledge and the massage itself was heavenly…
