Club moves into Clerkenwell’s Old Sessions House building
25 October, 2019 — By Calum Fraser
A SWISH new restaurant and members’ club with a “colonial vibe” is set to open in the landmark Old Sessions House building in Clerkenwell.
Developers have prepared the top two floors of the Grade II-listed Old Sessions House in Clerkenwell Green to be converted into a combination of a restaurant and art studio called the Sessions Arts Club.
In its planning document, the new venue said: “Sessions will design a space that echoes the ethos of its brand – blending nature’s and the art studio’s natural rhythm with reoccurring change.
“Sessions complements a Victorian/colonial vibe with large living and dead plants, trees, soft luxurious fabrics, heavy cottons and linen mixed with harder artists material such as canvas and stone.”
Operators said they want it to become a “local classic” and a place where “the local community can come and explore all the arts”.
Exhibitions will be put on periodically.
