The Book Club

The Book Club is a new London hangout boasting cocktails, art, brunch, beer, music, talks, reading, dancing, wine, newspapers, storytelling and ping-pong.  Is this the model venue for the 21st century?!

Bookclubbers unite!

The new VitraHaus from architects Herzog & de Meuron (who designed the Tate Modern and the Beijing ‘Bird’s Nest’ amongst other iconic buildings) is a stunning, singular structure made up of 12 stacked, cantilevered houses.

I think it’d make an amazing apartment block.

And I’d live in the top one.
