On Wednesday 25th June 2014, London’s creative elite turned out to celebrate the launch of a new private members’ club for the eclectic literary and design communities: LIBRARY. Opening its doors on the 30th June, the space will offer live entertainment, all day dining and an enviable cultural events programme and literary society for its members.
Founded by leading entrepreneur Ronald Ndoro, he “wanted to create a home for the vibrant literary community.” He explains, “due to our location, we will blend that crowd with theatricals and provide a much-needed space for the pioneering design community of the capital and beyond”.
The extensive cultural programming is key to LIBRARY’s appeal. Tani Burns and Andrew Hancock of ART NAKED, are lined up to curate a revolving series of contemporary exhibitions and installations within the space, reflecting work by a mix of pioneering visual artists and designers. Cecily Mullins & Nicola Robinson (from our very own It’s Rude To Stare) are set to compile a rich program of literary and cultural events, seminars and live music bookings for the LIBRARY network.
The interior masterminds behind LIBRARY, Mark Peridis and his team at 19 greek street, will compere frequent dinners for the design community, showcasing worldwide trends at pivotal moments in the world of design.
The opening party gave us a small and delectable taste of the exciting things to come. Hosting Haim and Mr Hudson on the decks, Paloma Faith, Edie Campbell and Jonathan Ross were among the guests who came to celebrate the venue. Kelis, long-reigning Queen of R&B and food enthusiast, provided the live music, and a cohort of London’s creatives came together to enjoy the new space.
We can’t wait to hear LIBRARY’s stories.
