A warm welcome to St Marylebone Rotary Club
President Dr Peter Marshall
Our Club now holds its weekly Thursday lunchtime meetings in the Oriental Club situated opposite Bond Street Tube Station in Stratford Place, a cul de sac off Oxford Street. We meet each Thursday at 12.30 for 1.00. (WC1 1ES).
The Oriental Club, dating from almost 200 years ago, is an iconic Central London focal point for visitors from around the world. The historic building was originally built in 1770 as The Lord Mayor's Banqueting Hall. Modifications were made over succeeding years to make it suitable for a Gentlemen's Club but in recent years it has opened to both ladies and gentlemen.
Today, it appears as a city mansion with wonderful wooden panelled walls, a magnificent staircase, historic portraits of members, including The Duke of Wellington, the founder of the Club.
The several dining rooms are overseen by a Michelin star chef.
Our Rotary Club looks forward to meeting you in this splendid building.
Please note that the Oriental Club requires all male members and visitors to wear jackets and ties at lunch and jeans should not be worn.

All members aim to achieve Rotary's motto of "Service before Self".
We are non-political and non-sectarian and welcome members of all religious faiths and none
The Club's prime target for the year will be to increase its membership to become more active in the local Marylebone community that will allow us to raise more funds more easily for our projects.
