A Birley Club
Hidden away on Brook’s Mews in Mayfair, the Bath & Racquets Club is a private Members’ squash and sports club that differs qualitatively from the vast mass of health clubs across London. Designed by Mark Birley as a place that will make its Members want to exercise, there is a bar tucked snugly into the corner of the changing room where one can order from the all-day menu and comfortable sofas to collapse into after a workout on the state-of-the-art equipment.
The gym itself is a two-tier space, antique rugs sitting alongside plasma screens and exercise machines. In addition to the physiotherapist, masseuse and a vast army of personal trainers and squash coaches, there is also a barber shop and steam room. All exercise clothing, dressing gowns and towels are provided for all Members and laundered on site.
