Night out in Mayfair

Something I always wanted to do was to be invited to dine at one of the West End's Private Members' Dining Clubs. I was lucky enough to get such an invite for tonight. Looking just like any other building in the street these buildings are carefully understated.

Inside they are amazing. Not changed probably since Victorian times. Black and white checker floor tiles; heavy wood panelling; landscape paintings in ornate gilt frames and heavy drapes.

The food wasn't the whole story (although it was very good) - meeting new acquaintances at dinner, interesting chats - and a talk after the meal finished. It was a wonderful evening out!
