Tailored towards people who are like-minded, social, genuine & diverse, The Oblique Life is a London based Membership Club & Lifestyle Management Service that puts community first.
In a world that is increasingly uncertain, divided and polarised, our mission is to help people in London and beyond create a true sense of home from home. Not based on where they are, but based on who they are with.
Rather than joining the status quo and focussing only on aesthetics, status and appearance, we go out of our way to create welcoming environments where people can feel comfortable to be themselves, surrounded by other people who are open to meeting new people and embracing the concepts of diversity and difference.
As a member, you don’t just get access to an incredible offering that spans across a wholistic lifestyle, you get so much more. You become part of the family. The Oblique Life Family.
“There really isn’t a service out there offering anything comparable to The Oblique Life.”

“The Oblique Life enables the members to make new friends in different social circles.”
“The Oblique Life team really go out of their way to please their members in every way.”
“The team have been absolutely awesome; helping me find & book some of the coolest bars & restaurants across London (while managing to save me money!)”
“What really makes The Oblique Life stand out is the level of personal service you get as a member. They know your personal likes and the concierge not only help you out with finding a place to host your birthday party or have a romantic dinner, but will be one step ahead and get in touch to recommend new places that you’ll love!”

We are the Sumaria brothers, Romi, Shonil and Keyu, and together we founded The Oblique Life. Not only are we brothers, we are three best friends with a shared vision of helping Londoners meet, connect and engage like they used to, before the days of dating apps and social media.
With our roots spanning across three different continents over four generations, we have always been privileged to be part of numerous strong and supportive communities including an extremely large extended family that still holds strong ties, no matter how spread out across the globe. It is from all the experiences we have shared that we began to formulate our values that we uphold today in terms of what it means to be part of a real community.
For us Community represents the following:
A Network of like-minded people who are more than happy to extend introductions to people and invite in new faces
Inspiration & Motivation from being around people doing amazing things in their personal and professional lives
Shared Lessons & Support between people who have made mistakes and are willing to help others avoid the same by sharing their experiences
Opportunities that can arise from a simple conversation or shared vision that can lead to a once in a lifetime experience, a business idea or even a marriage
Fun and the ability to create moments that you can look forwards to in your everyday life with people you like to be around
With all this in mind, we became increasingly tired of how impersonal London’s social scene was becoming with too many services and clubs focussing on aesthetics rather than creating welcoming environments where people could feel comfortable to be themselves, surrounded by other people who were open to meeting new people and embracing the concepts of diversity and difference.
It is for this reason that we created The Oblique Life. A way for people to try new experiences and at the same time know they will be able to meet new and old faces alike. A way for people to feel that little bit more special through benefits and special treats offered by partners who share our same values. A way for people to feel like they always have someone looking out for them for the times they need that extra helping hand. A way to feel part of a family away from home. That’s The Oblique Life.
